For the last two centuries the view of leadership in Christianity is remarkable similar to the world's view with command and control at the heart of leadership. How does that work in a kingdom where leaders don't "lord over" and where we are all brothers and sisters before anything else?
Not. Very. Well. If Jesus is going to be the head of his church then we need different kind of leadership–not those who can manage crowds with their charisma and humor, but those who can equip people to know, listen to, and follow the Head himself. In fact, "leadership" isn't a great translation for anything in the New Testament. The words and application would be far better translated "catalyst" or "facilitators,' and the challenge isn't to get people to follow you, it's to get them to follow Jesus without making them dependent on you or your program.
