Every leader needs to realize that there are 5 types of people around them.
1. Needy – People wanting something
2. Fans – People there mostly because of superficial qualities they like in you
3. Followers – People who are listening and learning
4. Friends – People who know you and love you
5. Covenant – People in with you for the long haul
Note: Don’t be disappointed but you can only count on those in covenant to stay during hard times. They may disagree with you. They may not even like you. But they will stay.
