7 Qualities Women Bring to a Leadership Team

The passion they have is like a strong engine that keeps the vehicle moving, even when things get hard.

5. Relational Savvy

Pastoral ministry is incredibly relational, and unless we have people on our leadership team who are gifted with cultivating and developing relationships, our church will suffer.

Of course, relational savvy isn’t limited to women, but I’ve watched countless women in ministry be able to navigate difficult relational problems in the workplace and I wouldn’t want to miss out on this quality.

6. Optimism

Women tend to be more optimistic than men. They tend to look at the glass as half-full and seek to see opportunities, even in the worst circumstances.

This is not just my opinion. It’s proven to be true. Check out this Forbes article.

7. Integrity

If you click through the Forbes article, you’ll notice women also tend to display a higher degree of integrity and honor than men. I have to say, in my experience, this is true.

Although I’ve worked with all kinds of men and women who have incredible integrity, I’m grateful for the way the women on our teams are open and receptive to the conviction of the Holy Spirit, and tend to to point us back to Jesus.
