Worship Leader Tip: Know What Leadership Style to Use

I've started following the Church Audio Blog by "JB." Funny, I don't even know his real name. But he had a great post about leadership styles entitled "Ministry Leader, Coach, or Manager?" He talks about being a leader, coach, or manager.

I'm not a perfect leader. I used to think one style of leadership was the best — the one that best would lead someone like me. But I've discovered that when I lead, I have to figure out what the situation needs from a leader, then adjust my leadership style to match the situation. I've failed along the way, figuring out that one style doesn't fit all. It's not easy when I'm naturally bent toward a certain style either.

Working with artist and musicians — we tend to be more sensitive. This impacts leadership style. Also, it depends on the musician. The cocky guitar player needs firm leadership when a shy vocalist needs more coaching.

God help me to know how to best lead Your musicians. Help me lead them as if you were leading them.
