5 Servant Leadership Lessons from Pope Francis

Whether you aspire to become a servant leader or you’re seeking to build relationships with others that embrace these principles, now is the time to do it.  The lessons below will be a great start for you.  The visit from Pope Francis to the USA is not only a wake up call for Catholics, but also our Nation as a whole.  Each person should be able to take something from his message to move you to a life of servant leadership.

Treating, others with respect will ultimately earn respect.

"We, the people of this continent, are not fearful of foreigners, because most of us once were foreigners." Pope Francis

Confidence and respect cannot be attained without your leadership being consistent. People must have confidence that their opinions and thoughts are heard and considered.

Although the life of a person is in a land full of thorns and weeds, there is always a space in which the good seed can grow. You have to trust God.  Pope Francis

Quiet Confidence
Be sure of yourself with humble intentions. 

A little bit of mercy makes the world less cold and more just. Pope Francis

Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it's thinking of yourself less. - C. S. Lewis

We must restore to young people, help the old, be open to the future, spread love. Be poor among the poor. We need to include the excluded and speak peace. Pope Francis

Loving on Purpose
True love is both loving and letting oneself be loved. It is harder to let ourselves be loved than it is to love.  Pope Francis
