“We are the product of the source of our counsel. Hence, effective leaders seek counsel from the right source in order to help their entities thrive.” – Francis Abbah

Leadership is complex, and part of the complexities in leadership has to do with the people being led. And because leaders do not always have the answers to what their people and entities may be experiencing, it then becomes crucial for leaders to have internal or external sources of counsel that can help them to lead their people from one destination to the preferred destination effectively.

Great leaders are great listeners, and they are great listeners first before they are great communicators and vision casters.

For leadership to be effective, then leaders will not only need to listen to the people they lead but will also need to listen to the right people who can help their entities to attain their set visions and purposes and also help their entities thrive.

Great leaders are great listeners and they are great listeners of the right people with the right counsel.

We are the product of the source of our counsel. Hence, effective leaders seek counsel from the right sources in order to help their entities thrive.

The very source of counsel of leaders will be one of the factors that will determine the extent to which the entities that the leaders are part of will thrive, divide or decline away from their set visions and purposes.

Sometimes, wrong decisions and choices by some leaders that have cost the very entities they were part of were simply decisions that were influenced by the wrong people that these leaders had around them. And because the choices and decisions of leaders do not only affect them but do also affect the very people they lead, then it becomes crucial in the kind of selection of the sources of counsel that leaders choose to have. For the very source of counsel that leaders choose to have can either make or break the very entities that they are part of.

As leaders, we must always seek counsel from the right people and source when in need of such counsel. And the right people could be people who genuinely love us, who have competence and knowledge in the area we are seeking counsel from, who are people of character and who have our very best interest at heart.

And as the great biblical record in proverbs states, “where there is no counsel, the people fall; But in the multitude of counsellors there is safety”.

For we are the product of the source of our counsel, hence, let us seek counsel from the right people when in need of such counsel.
