The question itself assumes an atypical answer, simply because it leaves out so much. To ask only about one's character seems inadequate when defining a leader. We surely need to ask about character, but also about personality, communication skills, IQ, education, previous experience, and more . . . don't we? Crawford Loritts disagrees. He answers the question with four simple words:\r\n\u003cp\u003e\r\nBrokenness. Communion. Servanthood. Obedience.\r\n\u003c\/p\u003e\u003cp\u003e\r\nThese four traits form the framework for Leadership as an Identity. By examining each trait, Loritts undermines many pervasive assumptions about leadership that are unbiblical. According to Loritts, God doesn't look for leaders like the world does.
