Eight leadership lessons from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

If you missed Monday’s video of Dr King’s speech, I’d encourage you to go watch it. Here are eight great leadership lessons from his famous speech.

  1. Great leaders do not sugar-coat reality.
  2. Great leaders engage the heart.
  3. Great leaders refuse to accept the status quo.
  4. Great leaders create a sense of urgency.
  5. Great leaders call people to act in accord with their highest values.
  6. Great leaders refuse to settle.
  7. Great leaders acknowledge the sacrifice of their followers.
  8. Great leaders paint a vivid picture of a better tomorrow.

This list was taken from Michael Hyatt’s great podcast on the same topic.
