Bishop Pride Sibiya and The Traits Approach To Leadership

His Grace; Bishop (Apostle) Pride Sibiya; celebrated his 41st birthday on September 5, 2019. Having recently been ordained and consecrated into the Bishopric office; his journey has been long and challenging to reach this Promised Land.

There is a billion-dollar question at the back of people’s minds that needs to be addressed. The question revolves around: What has aided Bishop Pride Sibiya’s progressive transformation from being an ordinary rural boy who hails from Chipinge (Zimbabwe) to become a highly sought-after global minister of the word. What has transformed the once sickly young boy into a global orator whose virtual online presence has transcended and changed all the four corners of the planet earth? How does he manage to captivate virtual global audiences with large followings in Ireland, United States, Canada, Brazil, Australia, United Kingdom, South Africa and Nigeria to mention but a few? What makes one to be such an effective global leader and trendsetter?

Here is the link for Part 1 of the article: 

I am going to endeavour to answer this billion-dollar question with special reference to The Traits Approach to Leadership. Ralph Stogdill, Michael Lombardo and Morgan McCall identified several traits that all effective leaders are deemed to have in common. I have selected twelve of them, split into two articles; as I explore the life of a man who is poised to impact the current and future generations. Though Bishop Sibiya is primarily a man of serious spiritual devotion, prayer and faith in God; the following traits have pushed his star to the top echelons of earthly leadership.

7. Emotional Intelligence:
The art of emotional intelligence has the capacity to connect one wholly to their circle and network. It takes much grace to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions; with others feeling that you are part of them. Emotional intelligence greatly improves one’s ability to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically. Bishop Sibiya is a man of great emotional intelligence.

8. Charisma:
Being gifted does not mean that you just wake up one day as a public figure; with loyal sons and daughters following you. You need great charisma to attract and maintain the following. A number of potentially great leaders never rose to the apex of their ministerial calling because of failure to captivate crowds. Bishop Sibiya commands strong stage presence; both physically and virtually.

9. Tact and Diplomacy:
A genuine leader should be understanding of other people and be sensitive to their opinions, beliefs, ideas and feelings. Once people feel you are part of them, it becomes easy to instruct, correct and even chastise them. Bishop Sibiya is a man of great tact and diplomacy. As a good shepherd, he first wins the hearts of his flock before laying out his vision for progressive pursuit.

10. Resilience to Stress:
Over the years, the world has been graced by many gifted people. But their flames never really went that far. They met many pressures along the way and “abandoned their eggs before hatching”. It is not an easy feat to rise up and maintain superstardom. Bishop Sibiya has mastered the art of managing adversity, trauma, tragedy and threats. No matter the intensity of the situation, I have seen him bouncing back with renewed vigour to continue his earthly assignment.

11. Strong Decision-Making Skills:
Decision-making is one of the most difficult tasks in life. I have seen people spending days struggling to decide on whether to buy a black leather jacket or brown jersey. It appears “simple” but in reality it is not!

Bishop Sibiya has accumulated many things at his disposal to enhance his decision-making abilities. He is a man of faith; has studied theology, human resources and psychology to mention but a few. He reads quite extensively, and understudies other established ministers of the word. Because of his diverse exposure; he has developed strong decision-making skills. Bishop Sibiya does not depend on emotions; he is a man of logical reasoning.

12. Assertiveness:
A number of leaders usually get compromised when they face the dilemma of choosing between “what is right” and “what is popular”. It is not an easy decision to make especially when there are material benefits involved. However, having watched my father preside over many meetings of such nature; I can confidently declare that Bishop Sibiya is a man of unmatched assertiveness! He stands for what is right regardless of how the atmosphere is like. God blessed him with much wisdom in presiding over such cases.

Bishop Pride Sibiya is the Founder, President and Presiding Bishop of Glory Ministries. Glory Ministries, headquartered in Chitungwiza, Zimbabwe; was established in 2001. It has now grown to more than 100 assemblies in Zimbabwe, Southern Africa and beyond.
