10 Signs You May Be An Insecure Leader

Insecurity is one of the greatest roadblocks to effective

leadership. It has the potential to affect our decisions, our

relationships, and our leadership style. Take a look at these 10

signs to see if you wrestle with any of them.

1. You see people as working for you and not with you.

2. Everyone who pushes back on any of your ideas is automatically branded as disloyal.

Because for you “ loyalty” is defined as, “loving everything I say and do!”

3. Every time someone begins to say something good about someone else you always have

to be the person who says, “Yes, but what you don’t know about them is...” and from that

point tear them down under the disguise of being concerned about them.

4. You get jealous when someone on your team receives any sort of public affirmation, but

you are not mentioned at all.

Remember how Saul felt when it was said, “Saul has slain his thousands, and David his tens

of thousands.”

5. You cannot celebrate what God is doing in other churches.

6. You always believe someone on your staff is going to attempt a coup and try to take over

your role as a leader.

This leads to suspicion and distrust, which will destroy any team.

7. You dismiss what God is doing in another ministry because it does not line up exactly with

where you are theologically.

8. You lead through intimidation, always threatening to “fire someone” if things “don’t shape

up around here.”

9. You really do like the fact that people on your staff are afraid of you.

10. You feel the need to prove yourself in every meeting you are in by seizing every

opportunity you have to speak—believing everything in the meeting is not going to be its

absolute best until you have had your say about it.
