Name: Keith Adams

Title: Pastor & Leader

Organisation: Remnant New Zealand

I have been in leadership both in the Church & in business over the past 45 years

1. What have you found most challenging as a leader?

Disappointment in that people promise to do things And either don’t do it or keep putting it off

2. How did you become a leader? Can you please briefly tell the story?

I started in Boy Scouts as a patrol leader My father was a leader so I believe I got the natural ability from him Ever since I have taken it been asked to take up leadership roles up to this present day

3. How do you structure your work days from waking up to going to sleep?

I am weekly task oriented with a to do list with priorities of importance I set in times for each area including rest & relaxation

4. What's a recent leadership lesson you've learned for the first time or been reminded of?

As a leader people you have to confront issues However I have changed my approach in that I come across on a very humble way Which I’ve found the response is less heated & basically I swallow my pride & stop defending

5. What's one book that has had a profound impact on your leadership so far? Can you please briefly tell the story of how that book impacted your leadership?

I don’t think there’s one book except the Bible that has impacted me more Looking at leadership of Jesus & men in the Bible who I learn how to response motivate & lead others

6. If you could only give one piece of advice to a young leader, what would you say to them?

Use your strengths & realise you are not infallible & that you have weaknesses Find others to take those roles off you & give them space to excercise them

7. What is one meaningful story that comes to mind from your time as a leader, so far?

Seeing one of my mentors taking up their gifted leadership role because of the impact I had made on them There’s nothing better than seeing others develop their skills & that you have been a part of it
