DCL 3.1 Instruction | Introduction

“Now therefore, let Pharaoh select a discerning and wise man, and set him over the land of Egypt.” 

Genesis 41:33


In his book, The 360 Degree Leader, Dr. John C. Maxwell states, “Ninety-nine percent of all leadership oc­curs not from the top but from the middle of an organisation.” You do not have to be the Senior Pastor or CEO to lead effectively. You can even learn to make an impact through your leadership if you report to someone who is not an effective leader. What’s the key? Learn to develop your influence from wherever you are in the organization or ministry by becoming a 360 Degree Leader. You learn to lead up, lead across, and lead down.

In the following six lessons, we will study principles that will help you lead effectively from anywhere in your ministry or organization. First, let’s look at some of the myths believed by many people who do not hold the top leadership position.
