Leadership Issues: Conflict Part 1

Conflict at Top-2 Samuel 2:4-11

Transitions often bring difficult times. Leaders who fail to plan for their departure invite trouble. Saul could have been a hero had he cooperated with God in preparing David to succeed him.

Saul suffered from an “I” problem, an oversize ego that blinded him. Saul could’ve helped himself had he recognized these truths:

  1. Since change makes people insecure, leaders must see ahead and prepare for them
  2. People can live without certainty, but not without clarity regarding future direction.
  3. Wise choices today put “change in the pocket” of a leader regarding future choices.
  4. Problem-solving skills and effective communication earn the leader trust and credibility.
