Leadership Tips

Dear LWML Leaders,

Welcome back to Tips for Leading with Confidence. We pray this leadership tip will be beneficial as you serve our Lord through the LWML. We welcome your feedback and suggestions.

Leadership Transition — Part II

As mentioned in the previous recent “Tips for Leading with Confidence,” the transition of responsibilities from outgoing officers to incoming officers happens after an election, but it actually begins before the commitment is made to run for an office.

Here are some points for the incoming officer:

  • Know that you have been chosen by God to fulfill the duties of this office.
  • Read the Scriptures, pray, and thank God for the opportunity to serve Him in this way.
  • Obtain leadership information from the LWML website (www.lwml.org). Click the “Service” tab, and then “Leadership Development.”
  • Sign up to receive “Tips for Leading with Confidence” on the LWML website. If you don't already receive these in your email inbox, now is a good time to subscribe!
  • Stay in touch with the outgoing officer and use her as a resource.
  • Do not be afraid to ask questions!

As you come to him, … in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ (1 Peter 2:4–5).

(Ideas taken from Stay Calm and Transition On, a Leadership Development resource.)

God's Blessings,
