Bobby Clinton's Leadership Emergence Theory

Leadership Emergence Theory suggests that God is at work in the life of a leader. The experiences, people, joy, pain, trials, triumphs of the leader are used by God to chisel the emerging leader into the person God desires and can use best. Leadership emergence theory suggests that God is at work sculpting leaders and positioning leaders to accomplish His will.

This definition makes me hopeful that I’m arriving at the Convergence Phase in my life. I no longer wonder why I’ve been hammered on so hard at points along the way and I didn’t even realize that God was using those painful ‘hammerings’ to make me more usable to Him.

I'm grateful to Dr. Bobby Clinton, one of the unique voices on Leaders and leadership emergence, who coined this thought process.

You may want to grab a copy of Dr. Clinton's book on The Making of a Leader here.
