Hannah’s weaknesses in leadership were primarily due to her letting the negativity of others influence her actions and her sometimes highly emotional reactions. In 1 Samuel 1:6-7, when Hannah is provoked by Peninnah, she is irritated to the extent that she is tearful and cannot eat. Hannah’s highly emotional tendency is also demonstrated in 1 Samuel 1:8-10, where she is described as downhearted and bitter. Being influenced by negativity and being highly emotional is a negative for a servant leader because it is during these times when someone could seek immediate solutions to their problems instead of being steadfast and resolute to seek God’s plan. As a servant leader, one must be able to limit the influence of negativity and control emotional impulses which could delay or even hinder the manifestation of a long-term vision.
