      Leadership is complicated because every follower is different and has different needs. Each leadership situation requires a different approach to meet the follower’s needs.

      because leadership changes from one minute to the next.

      It has many attributes and directives.

      Leadership is complicated because of the human elements that people bring. People have different capacities to learn and lead, different strengths, emotions, all of which need to be cultivated in order to create unity and ownership in fulfilling the vision.

      Every situation and group is different and may require a specific style and combination of styles to encourage participation and completion of the task. Not every leader can lead every group. What one leader may be effective in may not mean that he/she is effective in a different area.

      Leadership is extremely complicated because there are so many different ways to describe leadership that never fully encapsulates what leadership is. It is extremely vague and complex because there isn’t a set way of seeing it. There are also so many different styles and ways that someone could lead.

      Leadership is complicated because there are many different styles and types and they all contribute to being a good leader. There is not just one way. Leadership is complicated because a leader must be able to discern what is needed and at one time. There are many hats to where and many situations for wearing them. You also have to be very entuned with yourself. You must lead yourself first before you can lead others.

      Leadership is so complicated because it is constantly changing and the world has a very different view of leadership in its own world standards that are not based in Biblical principles. The world says that power, status and authority win while God says, focus on my people and help them to grow and thrive. That is the win.

      Because it’s so situational and contextual. It cannot be narrowed down because who you’re leading and why is so important to consider.

      Leader ship is so “complicated due to the fact that people don’t understand the two different types of leaders. Do you have a vocal leader than you have an actual leader. The problem is when people are on a team and the vocal guy is speaking to them they take it personal. So the action guy has to come and explain what the vocal guy was referring to.

      People are complicated. Leading people is significantly more complicated. Being a good leader means you are walking in truth and love. Love is patient, kind, does not envy, keeps no record of wrong. As humans, we can be impatient, not kind, we definitely keep records of wrongs. If we can lead through love, victory and confidence in the Lord, we will effectively get the followers where God wants them to go.

      Every situation is unique. Every person or group we work with has their own needs.

      Leadership is complicated because it never looks exactly the same, and we like to make things processed and step-by-step. If we define it as servant leadership then how we serve looks different every time, too.

      Leadership is so complicated because it is so multifaceted and relational.

      Leadership is complicated because it is situational. There is not a step to success process way to lead. Leadership is determined by the need at the hand, the goal, the people, the purpose, and so on.

      Leadership can be complicated for a couple reasons! Leadership is complicated because people respond differently to different styles of leadership. What works with one person, may not work with another. Then too, leadership can be complicated as there can be a number of elements that fall outside their control.

      It is challenging to lead others when they do not want to be led or they do not want to change their lifestyle to follow Christ as you are leading them.

      There is no one way to do leadership and depending on the situation or the person you’re working with, it can change multiple times in how you lead.

      As we have seen, leadership is always evolving and different types of leadership skills are necessary to be effective in helping followers in the unique styles needed to be a good leader

      It is ever changing and can be done in many different ways and no two ways are the same. Also, the ones you are leading aren’t the same and need leadership in different ways.

      People are all created differently and uniquely, therefore there can’t be one set way to lead. If we truly want our leadership to reflect Christ and involve people, there needs to be many parts in order to meet people where they’re at and empower them forward.

      Leadership is hard because it involves people! People are unique and different, and leadership is about being skilled, motivated, gifted, and experienced in a situation AND connect with others to move them to somewhere better.

      There are constantly changing aspects to leadership, including the people, the needs, the situations. It cannot be just 1 thing.

      There are a lot of moving parts. The leader has some pressure to get results but sometimes results are at odd with people and relationships.

      I think leadership can be complicated because situational leadership is always needed. There are several different scenarios that can play out and knowing how to adapt and be resourceful for all situations isn’t always a “leaders” strong suit

      I really like what he said about the golf club analogy. Each club does something different and you have to know how to use it. That is what makes leadership so complicated. You have several different types of leadership and you have to know how to use them with all kinds of different types of people.

      it is situational and dealing with people. So many variables. No “one size fits all”

      There are many different, constantly changing tasks to leadership. There is not one right answer or style. You have to know what style to use to accomplish the task.
