Seriously. Jesus really set the example of being an outstanding leader. His lifestyle demonstration of servant-leadership was pretty novel and has literally changed the world. Also, He wasn't a wuss and He set good boundaries. He truly let His Yes mean Yes - and His No meant No (and still does). If you don't know Him as Lord, this book will help draw you into how amazing He was/is - and maybe then you'll want to know more and read His word??
I wasn't thrilled with all aspects of this book as I think they could have done better to draw some of the attributes of Jesus. But I don't have any disagreements or arguments with what they wrote. Maybe some was a bit weak (unlike Jesus....!) But it is def a good book if you are starting to study what was so great about Jesus as a leader. Gives good examples and provides the basic foundation of Him as a man and leading a diverse group of folks. And does well to apply to today's world and how you can apply these attributes.
We need more leaders to emulate Christ, die to self, and become servant leaders because of their love for God and for others. This book doesn’t offer cheap tools for manipulation, but rather a transformational relationship with God that will challenge your values and change your perspective on success and what it means to lead.
This is a read for all individuals. It makes you look at yourself because we are all leaders in some manner whether taking care of family, parents or just being a friend. It challenges you to do better and make those changes whether at home or on the job. It’s daily living as required by Christ to lift each other up and be the difference 😊
I anticipated this being another standard motivational book, but on the recommendation of a friend i bought it. Its a great read, very up to date and covers real life, present day social issues in a biblical way, but that does not get in the way of excellent secular advice. If you lead people in any capacity you will find it valuable.
I’ve read many leadership books including a lot from Ken Blanchard before - this one by far is the most important and impactful yet. Often times I’ve been asked “who is my best leadership role model” and I often think of Jesus but don’t have the appropriate reasons to explain why. This book spells out exactly why following Jesus his leadership style you can never go wrong. And the pitfalls to avoid. I’ve already shared it with four other colleagues and my Pastor.
This took me ages to read as I was distracted a lot with other things, but I wanted to make sure I gave it my full attention when reading it. Boy, was this book jam-packed with inspiring and challenging leadership techniques and practices!
The book breaks down the leadership qualities that Jesus displayed throughout his life and ministry. It's also a great intro into the leadership ministry that the authors have built, operating in many countries, influencing leaders to be servants of those they lead.
I was continually encouraged and challenged through the book - The practical tips, lists and curated questions really help one narrow down on the particulars of their leadership and identify aspects they can improve and develop. It helps people who don't consider themselves leaders step into the places they lead with confidence and conviction, and to have faith in themselves and God in them.
The techniques here work in any type of leadership context, and any business or driven person would do well to incorporate them into their personal practices.
An excellent and encouraging call to a better leadership style with a better leadership example.
