How to Be a Good Boss


In this message, Bryant Wright gives biblical principles for being a good boss.

Masters, grant to your slaves justice and fairness, knowing that you too have a Master in heaven. - Colossians 4:1

Here are some biblical principles for being a good boss:

•  Be a person of integrity. People need to be able to trust the boss.

•  Make expectations clear. Take the time to teach, train, and respond to questions.

•  Hold people accountable. Expecting excellence is good for all.

•  Be fair to all concerned. Playing favorites is demoralizing to the troops.

•  Lead by building up the team and individual rather than leading through intimidation.

•  Genuinely care about the employee’s success just as much as your own. This makes your chance for success far greater.

•  Most of all, remember you have to answer to God.

God has entrusted authority to you to serve Him and others through leadership. Jesus was the perfect example of servant leadership when He humbled Himself to become one of His own creations and, even more so, when He gave His life for those He came to lead.

Jesus is the ultimate CEO, the ultimate boss, the ultimate servant leader.
