Discernment goes deeper than knowledge. At times, discernment is a gift; at other times, it results from much experience. Discernment brings a profound perception of what is occurring, either on the outside or the inside of a person.
To improve your discernment as a leader:
– Learn to hear God’s voice. Get quiet and read Scripture. Reflect on the mind of God.
– Build problem-solving skills, If you can see root issues of problems, you can solve those difficulties.
– Analyze your successes.
– Choose leaders you admire and study how they think.
– Listen to your gut.
