The Leadership Pattern: Leading Like the Savior

The Leadership Pattern is a framework of 9 TALENTS and 48 ACCOMPANYING BEHAVIORS that helps the Church workforce know how to do the Lord's work in the Lord's way. Created at the request of the First Presidency, the pattern was developed through interviews with General Authorities, focus groups, and industry best practices. It brings together the best of doctrine, principles, and application—guiding us to a higher level of behavior and performance and helping each of us to become more Christlike.

Please Note: The Leadership Pattern has been specifically designed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to assist members of the Church workforce with their unique needs and opportunities. You may share with others individual principles, talents, or behaviors from the pattern, but please do not distribute the Leadership Pattern in its entirety outside of the workforce setting.
