The Law of the Inner Circle Part 10

 Advisors Make or Break-Proverbs 11:14

Every leader ought to build an inner circle that adds value to him or her and to the leadership of the organization. But choose well, for the members of this inner circle will become your closest confidantes; your inner circle will make you or break you.

Proverbs 11:14 says, “Where there is no counsel, the people fall; but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.” So, who belongs in the “council,” in this inner circle? Strive for the following:

  1. Creative people
  2. Loyal people
  3. People who share your vision
  4. Wise and intelligent people
  5. People with complementary gifts
  6. People with influence
  7. People of faith
  8. People of integrity

John Feels Isolation-Matthew 11:2, 3

When John loses his inner circle of disciples, his empty emotional tank prompts him to question Jesus’ identity and credentials. Leaders need a close team of associates who allow the leader to vent, and who lend support through speaking words of truth. Do you have an inner circle?
