ON THIS EPISODE:

King Darius. 

Leadership one…  His kingdom was too big for him to rule alone so he divided up his land and gave the oversight to 120 high officers.  Daniel 6:1

  • Disperse your leadership.

Leadership two… “The king also chose Daniel and two others as administrators to supervise the high officers and protect the king’s interests.” Daniel 6:2 

  • Allow others to lead.

Leadership three… Darius was watching for up and coming leaders to whom he could give greater responsibility.    “Daniel soon proved himself more capable than all the other administrators and high officers. Because of Daniel’s great ability, the king made plans to place him over the entire empire.” Daniel 6:3 

  • Look for up and coming leaders and make a plan to challenge them into leadership.

Leadership four… Even though it was painful, Darius stuck to his decision. Daniel 6:7

  • Be consistent in your leadership.

Leadership five… He executed swift consequences for those who were not team players and threatened the team.  “Then the king gave orders to arrest the men who had maliciously accused Daniel. He had them thrown into the lions’ den, along with their wives and children. The lions leaped on them and tore them apart before they even hit the floor of the den.” Daniel 6:24 

  • Don’t hesitate to do the right thing.

The only fault… Darius didn’t trust but verify…“We are all in agreement—we administrators, officials, high officers, advisers, and governors—that the king should make a law that will be strictly enforced. Give orders that for the next thirty days any person who prays to anyone, divine or human—except to you, Your Majesty—will be thrown into the den of lions.”  Daniel 6:7
