“What is responsive leadership? Responsive Leadership is what excellent leaders are constantly aware of due to the fast-paced environment around themselves, and their team! These leaders are able to react rapidly to changes and challenges by being proactive, recovering quickly from mistakes, and staying on point when the risk is high! Being a responsive leader entails being an effective listener, being resilient, showing empathy, and being responsive to the needs of your people! How responsive are you as a leader?” — COL (Ret) Mikel Burroughs

Good morning Col Burroughs and all of my brothers and sisters here on VFV. As I was doing some internet searching for today’s topic, I ran across a link that I think clearly spells out what many do not consider regarding their work and the rest of their days. When we look at what the Bible has to say about work, it clearly, to me at least, how God responds to us and how therefore we should respond to each other. Have a blessed day today and always.

A leader who isn't responsive to the needs of their troops isn't much of a leader. At best they are a mid level manager.

Great point and comparison Jack... some aren;t even mid-level managers...it starts at the lowest level of leadership - being responsive to your people, yourself, and the organziation! Have a great day my friend...
