Ninety-five percent (95%) said, “I ask for feedback on how my actions affect other people’s performance.” Humility, openness, authenticity, transparency, willingness to adjust—these are characteristics of a person who does not simply take charge but desires to be a motivational, mentoring shepherd. DMs are conscientious leaders—they treat each church member with respect and appreciation. They realize that the pastor ought to set the benchmark for what he expects from his congregation. A DM does not cast blame on others for unexpected results but begins with a genuine look at his own actions and takes responsibility for personal growth and leadership. — Steve Parr
