To lead responsibly is to recognize meaning behind signs and dreams
St. Joseph is an example of a father and leader of his organization (his family) who takes charge and takes action to protect those he is responsible for. By hearing the angel’s warning he is able to take steps to ensure the safety of his family, despite the danger from a powerful enemy – King Herod.
Perhaps an underrated part of being a leader is one’s ability to recognize signals whether from an astute understanding of an organization’s internal and external context or even balancing reason with faith. Indeed, logic, intuition, and faith are all needed to lead successfully.
Matthew 2:13-18. Joseph received a warning in his dreams
