To those God has chosen for leadership, Paul says:

...
In this text, Paul declares he has no hidden agendas. He will not indulge in politicking nor does he plan to manipulate anyone. What you see is what you get. He means exactly what he says, nothing more. No need to examine the numerical value of the Greek letters to arrive at a hidden meaning.
The words used to translate 'holiness and sincerity' in the above verse show Paul means purity of motives and singlemindedness of purpose.
...
Did Paul, therefore, deserve to be an Apostle?
...
Paul adds this to emphasize the supreme value and importance of spiritual leadership.
...
Paul had to defend against a disdainful attitude from the Corinthian believers. He did this not for his sake alone, but for the honor of the gospel and because their attitude was sinful.
Being a servant predisposed to suffering, does not always mean a leader must let himself be walked on. When the honor of the gospel is called into question, he not only has a right to defend himself, he has that obligation.
...
By the term ' another man's foundation,' Paul recognized others have ownership of the ministries they found.
...
To Philemon, Paul says, "But without your consent I wanted to do nothing, that your good deed might not be by compulsion, as it were, but voluntary. " Philemon 1:14 As an Apostle, Paul could have given orders. He didn't. Consistent with Christian leadership style, Paul refused to by-pass Philemon's domain of influence. Regarding Apollos, Paul says, Now concerning our brother Apollos, I strongly urged him to come to you with the brethren, but he was quite unwilling to come at this time; 1Cor. 16:12 Paul 'urged' him but did not command him.
...
Together these show Paul's 'no hidden agendas' conduct toward others. Thayer's Lexicon, New Testament Greek-English Lexicon. ARCHA Publishers: Lafayette, IN 1979 pp. 55&175
...
15. This is a quote from Dr. Paul Kooistra, director of Mission to The World, during a mission conference in July 2002.
16. The command 'listen to him' in Aramaic carries the meaning, 'obey what he says.'
