Leadership StyleA Teacher with Directive Behavior

Intemperance: The leader lacks self-control in personal habits and conduct(Manning) It is very hard to find negetive traits in God's chosen Patriach.Then Joseph could no longer control himself before all his attendants, and he cried out, “Have everyone leave my presence!” So there was no one with Joseph when he made himself known to his brothers. And he wept so loudly that the Egyptians heard him, and Pharaoh’s household heard about it. Genesis 45:1-2
