This knol examines the characteristics of good leadership attributes from a biblical perspective. Although there are numerous definitions for leadership, there is limited discussion on the impacts of bad leadership in organizations. A common misconception among practitioners is confusing an organizational title with being a leader. Sadly, many organizations do not communicate how their values relate to good leadership principles. The specific outcome of this paper will demonstrate (a) an understanding of good leadership in accordance with the texts and (b) a discovery on the impacts of bad leadership. This effort will contribute to further exploration into the application of biblical text to leadership issues in organizations.
