#1 – Never follow a leader who seeks to build their platform through constantly tearing down the platform of others.
#2 – Never follow a leader who constantly makes excuses as to why they compromise their character and who refuse to admit, apologize, address and rectify such compromises.
#3 – Never follow a leader that constantly talks about how gifted they are but refuses to serve in areas that requires them to get their hands dirty.
#4 – Never follow a leader that refuses to declare their moral and spiritual existance because doing so might cause people to feel uncomfortable.
#5 – Never follow a leader who always has to make every decision.
#6 – Never follow a leader who isn’t willing to admit their mistakes, but are always quick to point out yours.
#7 – Never follow a leader who is always quick to throw you under the bus and never has your back when you mess up.
#8 – Never follow a leader who is not willing to let you excel beyond their own limitations. True leaders find, build, mentor, exhault and most importantly thrust new leaders into leadership positions!
# 9 – Never follow a leader who has no vision for the future of the endevor for which you are both striving to accomplish.
