The Seven “C’s” of Great Visionary Leadership

1. Confidence/security to carry out the vision – the opposite is a driven, insecure, controlling person 2. Capacity emotionally to endure opposition to see the vision become a reality – the opposite is a person who is emotionally fragile, emotionally unstable or emotionally unhealthy

3. Competence/skills to organize people and manage resources to see the vision come to pass - the opposite is a person who lacks the skills to lead the people around them through each season of growth as they fulfill the vision

4. Calling from God to persevere and endure – the opposite is a person who is acting in the flesh, who has human enthusiasm for a vision or dream but not the leading of God’s Spirit

5. Character necessary to live righteously as they see the vision come to pass – the opposite is a person who yields to temptation and is compromised by pride, or immorality, or ungodly behavior

6. Concepts/knowledge from the Bible to build on truth and sound doctrine – the opposite is a person who teaches false doctrine or is easily deceived by false prophets or false teachers

7. Core-values that are apostolic in nature and kingdom oriented in order to sustain and give quality and depth to the vision – the opposite is a person who is guided more by an unbiblical world view and cultural blind spots than by kingdom values, who is at the core of their being a prisoner of worldly values
