Magnificent Exit : Mastering The Art Of Leadership Transitions$19.95Add to cart
The Magnificent Exit is a book about transitional leadership. Through personal stories, professional case studies, biblical exegesis, character studies, and spiritual insights, Neil Hart introduces the reader to a transformative principle of leadership: the best leaders know when to leave, which is far earlier than usually thought. Here are just a few of the key principles explored in the book:
*The inertia created by poor leadership handoffs is one of the biggest leadership problems.
*Jesus turned the task of building the church over to others and then left the scene, serving as an example of transitional leadership.
*God’s vision for us as leaders is to think generationally.
*The best leaders envision their organizations without them in the picture.
*The best leaders know how to avoid “Founder President Syndrome.”
*A good transition involves both selecting the right successor and not waiting too long to leave.
*Key quote: “Organizations should exist for people, and people for the mission and kingdom of God. Leaders exist to serve people in that mission, to envision them, to encourage them, to course-correct, and to release them.”

Experience explosive growth and success in your career and personal life by taking ownership of your personal development and understanding you don’t need to know all the answers–but you do need to ask the right questions.
Whether you’re a leader of ten, a hundred, or many more, there’s no one more important to lead than yourself. If you’re not leading yourself, why would anyone else want to follow you? Ryan Leak speaks to thousands of leaders every year, and he has learned that the most successful people have taken ownership of their own development–and in order to realize your potential, you need to fully understand yourself.
Being a great leader is not about having all the answers but asking the right questions–and that starts with careful introspection and inviting others to tell you what they see in you. Leveling Up helps you focus on the person you’re becoming and think about the goals you want to accomplish. Some of the twelve strategic questions in this book include:
*What is it like to be around me? (The Self-Awareness Question)
*What credit can I give away? (The Team Player Question)
*Who knows who I really am? (The Transparency Question)
*What’s my definition of success? (The Vision Question)
*Do I have to do it all? (The Rest Question)
*Am I enjoying it? (The Fun Question)
Leadership theory and business practices are important to study, but nothing is better than discovering the answers that will reveal who you are at your core, where you want to go in your career and life in general, and how you can influence and impact those around you

Leadership As An Identity$16.99Add to cart
Ask yourself this question: What character qualities define a godly leader?
The question leaves out too much. Asking only about character seems inadequate. What about personality, communication skills, IQ, education, previous experience, and more . . . right?
Author Crawford Loritts answers this question with four simple words: brokenness, communion, servanthood, and obedience.
These four characteristics provide the framework for Leadership as an Identity. Examining each trait, Loritts undermines the pervasive and unbiblical assumptions about leadership.
Loritts imparts timely wisdom, correction, and direction. God doesn’t look for leaders like the world does. He looks for disciples.

Redeeming Productivity : Getting More Done For The Glory Of God$15.99Add to cart
Feeling overwhelmed and unproductive? The answer isn’t to do more.
What image forms in your mind when you think of productivity? An assembly line? Spreadsheets? Business suits or workplace uniforms? In the ancient world, productivity didn’t conjure images like these. Instead, it referred to crop yield and fruit bearing. This agrarian imagery helps us understand productivity through a biblical lens. Jesus taught, By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit (John 15:8). Who doesn’t want to have a truly productive life–to bear much fruit? But how does this happen in the places we hold dear–the home, workplace, and in our communities?
We often feel overworked and overrun, defeated and discouraged. The world says be productive so that you can get all you can out of this life. The Bible says be productive so you can gain more of the next life. In Redeeming Productivity, author Reagan Rose explores how God’s glory is the purpose for which He planted us. And he shows how productivity must be firmly rooted in the gospel. Only through our connection to Christ–the True Vine–are we empowered to produce good fruit. This book shows how we can maintain the vitality of that connection through simple, life-giving disciplines. Readers will discover manageable applications like giving God the first fruits of our days. Additionally, Reagan discusses how our perspective on suffering is transformed as we see trials as God’s pruning for greater productivity.
Creating Cultures Of Belonging$20.00Add to cart
With increasing interest from donors and board members to see faith-based, missional organizations reflect the diversity of God’s kingdom, these organizations desire to have women in positions of leadership. However, this proves difficult when the organizational culture is one that silences and even penalizes the unique giftings that women bring to the table.
Many organizations still lack the ability to embody a new culture-what Beth Birmingham and Eeva Simard call a belonging culture. Such a culture is one where all employees are secure and recognized, where leaders seek productivity and connectivity, and where the organization is committed to supporting a diverse community of employees.
Creating Cultures of Belonging offers solutions for leadership teams, board members, and managers that reshape organizational culture in ways that invite and celebrate gender equity. With practical steps to enhance mentorship opportunities, human resources practices, and management tactics, Beth and Eeva point a way forward by identifying the changes that need to be made to create a belonging culture.
Cultivating Mentors : Sharing Wisdom In Christian Higher Education$25.00Add to cart
Many colleges and universities informally highlight the value of mentoring among academic professionals.
Yet scholars often lack clear definitions, goals, practices, and commitments that help them actually reap the benefits mentoring offers. As new faculty members from younger generations continue to face evolving challenges while also reshaping institutions, their ability to connect with more experienced mentors is critical to their vocations–and to the future of higher education.
In Cultivating Mentors, a distinguished group of contributors explores the practice of mentoring in Christian higher education. Drawing on traditional theological understandings of the mentee-mentor relationship, they consider what goals should define such relationships and what practices make their cultivation possible among educators. With special attention to generational dynamics, they discuss how mentoring can help institutions navigate generational faculty transitions and cultivate rising leaders. Contributors include:
*Rebecca C. Hong
*Beck A. Taylor
*Stacy A. Hammons
This book offers valuable insights and practical recommendations for faculty members, administrators, and policy makers. Whether pursuing their vocation in Christian or secular institutions, Christian scholars will benefit from the sharing of wisdom mapped out in Cultivating Mentors.

David Mathis Examines the Qualifications and Calling of Church Leaders for a New Generation of Congregants and Leaders
We live in an age increasingly cynical about leadership-some of it for good reason, much of it simply the mood of our times. Still, the risen Christ continues the counter-cultural work he’s done for two millennia: he appoints leaders in his church-not as a burden, but as a gift to his people. “He gave . . . the shepherds and teachers, to equip the saints for the work of ministry” (Ephesians 4:11-12).
What is the nature, calling, and work of local church leadership? Pastor and seminary professor David Mathis considers the elder qualifications in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1 not only as prerequisites but as daily necessities to carry out joyfully. This accessible guide aims to serve current and aspiring pastors and elders, as well as church members who want to know the expectations for their leaders and how to pray for them. From the words of Christ to Peter and Paul and Hebrews, the New Testament casts a vision for church leaders that is good news to churches and leaders alike: joyful workers for the joy of their people.
*Great Training for Current and Aspiring Pastors and Elders: Expands on the nature and work of local church leadership through the framework of its qualifications in 1 Timothy 3:1-7, Titus 1:5-9, and other passages
*Useful for the Whole Church: Aims to help full-time pastors, lay elders, deacons, and seminary students, as well as church members eager to explore the true nature of leadership in the church and to pray intentionally for their own pastors
*Explains 15 Virtues Church Leaders Should Pursue: Mathis shares Spirit-given competencies that Christian leaders can draw upon week in and week out to do the work to which Christ has called them
When Women Lead$18.99Add to cart
Much of what men and women both think about women, gender differences, and cultural norms is remarkably under-processed. Without the benefit of intentional conversation about the barriers women face, most women are left to enter the world of leadership with inadequate awareness and resources. The acknowledgement of a woman’s right to leadership is only the first step. We have not yet addressed the very common barriers women face when they enter the leadership arena, nor have we explored practical solutions to help them navigate those barriers so they can lead effectively.
Women need to know that unrealistic optimism is a recipe for failure. Simply by acknowledging constraints to success, then exploring strategies to enhance leadership skills, we can help women take greater authority over their call to live out of a God-given identity and giftedness.
When Women Lead is for men and women who advocate for female leadership within the Church. When women are educated about the challenges they face and are given resources to navigate beyond those challenges, their opportunity for success in ministry increases dramatically. The purpose of this book is to describe those challenges, explore practical solutions, and equip women to lead successfully and hopefully.
While it is an excellent resource for women ready to enter leadership with more confidence and authority, it’s also perfect for denominational leaders charged with raising up women called to leadership roles, for lay leaders who want to better understand the dynamics at work when the pastor is a woman, and for husbands, parents, and friends who desperately want to support women in their life who are living out what God has given them to do.
What if the Kingdom of God is straining toward the day when all God’s people are deployed in the work of the Great Commission? Women are already leading powerful movements around the world. The evangelistic explosion being documented in many closed countries is largely due to the leadership of women. Missionaries tell of the critical role of women in introducing the gospel to new groups. This book can help to equip a new generation of women to rise up with tools in hand to welcome and advance God’s Kingdom on earth.

You were born to lead. Now it’s time to become a leader. Leaders may be found in boardrooms, but they may also be found in families, schools, and organizations of all kinds–anywhere people interact, nurture, create, or build. Contrary to popular opinion, leadership is not meant for an elite group of people who, by fate or accident, become leaders while everyone else is consigned to being a lifelong follower. After personally training thousands of leaders from around the world, best-selling author Dr. Myles Munroe reports that while every person possesses the potential of leadership, many do not understand how to cultivate the leadership nature and how to apply it to their lives. In The Spirit of Leadership, Dr. Munroe defines the unique attitudes that all effective leaders exhibit, explains how to eliminate hindrances to your leadership abilities, and helps you to fulfill your particular calling in life.

Beyond merely identifying the problems, this book offers you a blueprint for what to do when you see or feel evidence of these behaviors creeping into team dynamics.
Alignment of vision and purpose doesn’t happen by accident, and it isn’t maintained without careful attention and proactive strategies. But with Chris Sonksen’s help, you can save your church from itself.
Call To Follow$16.99Add to cart
Reexamining the Nature of Leadership and “Followership” in Light of Biblical Teaching
The market is flooded with books, conferences, and workshops on how to be a better leader. In most companies, leaders are noticed and applauded while followers are often viewed as weak and passive. However, Scripture tells us a different story; although leadership is valued and respected, being obedient followers of Christ is at the very heart of faith.
In The Call to Follow, Richard Langer and Joanne J. Jung teach readers that “followership” is essential to both organizational and spiritual flourishing. They argue that followership requires the development of specific skills and virtues modeled and extolled throughout Scripture. They point to examples of people from the Bible and church history who focused on following in the footsteps of their Savior rather than positions of leadership among others. This helpful book seeks to dismantle the idol of leadership that’s so prevalent in our culture and points us instead to the biblical concept of followership.
*Biblically Centered: Contains examples of “followership” from Scripture and church history
*Mission Oriented: Explains how being a follower of Jesus Christ is a missional calling
*Community Focused: Written to encourage Christ followers, in both leadership and followership positions

Lead Like It Matters Workbook$19.99Add to cart
It has been rightly said that Jesus is the hope of the world. While we can never argue against the importance of the power of the risen Son of God, it is also true that the local church is the hope of the world. After all, the church is the body of Christ. Jesus manifested himself through the church. And we, as the church, are chosen and called by God to be light in the darkness and give hope to the hopeless.
For this reason, it is critical for the body of Christ–both pastors and laypeople alike–to learn how to lead like it matters. In this study guide, which accompanies the book of the same name, pastor and bestselling author Craig Groeschel shares what he has learned in more than twenty-six years of leading LifeChurch. The church began in a borrowed two-car garage, with ratty furnishings and faulty audiovisual equipment, but people were drawn there because they sensed a powerful, life-changing force that Craig calls it. While exactly what it is can be difficult to define, Craig reveals seven factors that contribute to it (or at least don’t kill it):
2. Divine Focus
3. Unmistakable Camaraderie
4. Innovative Minds
5. Willingness to Fall Short
6. Hearts Focused Outward
Craig also unpacks three important realms that every leader must master: (1) prioritizing mindset over model, (2) creating systems that empower it, and (3) finding a balanced way to lead to stay centered around it. While adopting these seven factors and realms will not guarantee a church will have that it factor, it will certainly lead that church toward it. It will help all of us lead like it matters.

Rooted Leadership : Seeking God’s Answers To The Eleven Core Questions Ever$29.99Add to cart
Behind many of the challenges facing us today is a failure of leadership. This is not a new problem. Yearning for wise guidance and effective authority is a perennial human longing. We need leaders who are credible, competent and committed. But many leaders seem to be caught up, even consumed, with their own power and agendas. Some see the leadership crisis as an intellectual problem, believing we lack a clear theory of leadership. Others view the breakdown of leadership as a result of increasing deficiency in moral character.
Most leadership books today revolve around the concepts of motivation, inspiration, empowerment, and teamwork. Helpful as these themes might be, they miss something more fundamental. Leadership needs a theological foundation, that will be useful for shaping the undergirding principles, and evaluating current leadership theories and practices. We need to view leadership from the vantage point of God.
In Rooted Leadership, John E. Johnson explores how Christian theology provides an overarching leadership framework and applies that theory to leadership practices. Spiritual reflection, guided by scripture, points us to the very center of leadership–God–and the purpose of leadership–that we might display his glory. All the best forms of leading take their cues from who God is, his purposes, and his ways of working with people that he has progressively revealed.
Building on three decades of research, study, and experience as a global leader, Johnson surveys the landscape of contemporary leadership theory, unpacks the assumptions and beliefs that underly current trends, and responds by offering a robust approach to leadership, founded on the character, work, and words of God.
Lidere Como Cristo – (Spanish)$16.99Add to cart
Como es el liderazgo centrado en Cristo? Como cristiano, su enfoque de liderazgo se ve diferente al de aquellos que no siguen a Cristo? A lo largo de la Biblia, Dios nos muestra como se ve el liderazgo en Su reino y, a veces, puede parecer al reves. El primero sera el ultimo. El amo sera el sirviente. Pero, como podemos aplicar estas verdades contradictorias en nuestro mundo de hoy?
En lugar de centrarse en los aspectos practicos de la administracion, Lidere como Cristo usa el libro de Tito para observar de cerca lo que implica el liderazgo biblico. Usando como guia las instrucciones de Pablo a su joven compaero en el ministerio, Tozer nos lleva a traves de temas de gracia, servicio, audacia espiritual y humildad hacia la Palabra de Dios. Este fundamento conducira a un cambio poderoso y duradero, tanto en su propio rol de liderazgo hoy como en el reino eterno de Dios.
What does Christ-centered leadership look like? As a Christian, does your leadership approach look any different from that of those who don’t follow Christ? Throughout the Bible, God shows us what leadership looks in His kingdom, and sometimes it can seem upside-down. The first shall be last. The master shall be the servant. But how can we apply these counterintuitive truths in our world today?
Rather than focusing on the nuts and bolts of management, Lead like Christ uses the book of Titus to take a close look at what biblical leadership entails. Using Paul’s instructions to his young ministry partner as a guide, Tozer takes us through themes of grace, servanthood, spiritual boldness, and humility toward the Word of God. This foundation will lead to powerful, long-lasting change in both your own leadership role today as well as in God’s eternal kingdom.

What Was I Thinking$22.99Add to cart
How do you know when the rewards outweigh the risks?
If you want to reach your full potential in life, you can’t play it safe. If you’re too risk averse, you’ll be resigned to a life of mediocrity. But if you risk foolishly, you may destroy your life’s work and legacy.
But we can be overwhelmed by the sheer number of decisions we face, and the challenge of weighing the risks and rewards of each. In all this confusion, how can you be sure you won’t end up asking yourself, what was I thinking?
In this new book, David Ashcraft, pastor of a large and influential church, and Rob Skacel, licensed psychologist and business leader, encourage readers to embrace risk and to live their lives to the fullest potential, in order to both run and finish the race with no regrets.
Non Anxious Presence$15.99Add to cart
For much of recent history individuals and institutions could plan, execute, and flourish with their visions of a better world. Volatile, complex forces could be addressed and confronted with planning and management. But crisis is a great revealer. It knocks us off our thrones. It uncovers the weaknesses in our strategies and brings to light our myths and idols. Our past strategies run aground, smashed by unpredictable and chaotic waves. Yet in the midst of the chaos of a crisis comes opportunity. The history of the church tells us that crisis always precedes renewal, and the framework of renewal offers us new ways forward. A Non-Anxious Presence shows how that renewal happens and offers churches and leaders strategic ways to awaken the Church and see our culture changed for Christ.

Stop hiding and find healing.

*develop personal accountability, and
*cultivate a balanced life.
Become the leader you are meant to be and leave a legacy of blessing.

Aspiring Leaders Guide To The Future$24.99Add to cart
Leadership is not what it used to be and not what it once was. Too many leaders today are calibrated for a world that no longer exists. And people are demanding something so much different in leaders of today. Like a new house outfitted with the greatest VHS system on the planet, too many leaders are addressing today’s problems with the style and substance of yesterday’s leadership.
In The Aspiring Leader’s Guide to the Future, author Clay Scroggins uncovers nine counterintuitive axioms of leadership that will help leaders adapt to the rate of change while becoming today’s version of a leader worth following. For every principle of leadership, there is a counter principle that only those knee-deep in the mess of everyday life can understand. With the rapid nature of change happening today, these counter principles provide a new way forward for today’s leaders.
With disarming candor and simplicity, Clay dispels several age-old myths of what makes a great leader, showing why the old way needs updating. Today’s leaders rarely feel ready to lead, don’t always have the right people on the bus, and are more willing to be vulnerable even when they don’t have the answers. The way forward requires an understanding of the past, a conviction of what’s at stake today, and a vision for how different tomorrow will be.
There is a moment coming in your life that will require great leadership. Whether or not you’re able to rise to the occasion will be determined by how much you understand the substance and style of leadership required for today. Good news, though. You don’t have to wait for tomorrow’s leadership challenge to begin. As soon as you’re ready to see it and accept it, leading like this and not like that can start today!
Of Kings And Prophets$24.99Add to cart
Power is only as strong as the authority that sustains it.
This book will help you be a better leader. It will help you receive a healthy dose of accountability through applied spiritual authority.
The biblical prophets did not live or prophesy in a contextual vacuum. They spoke into real-life circumstances to real-life leaders such as kings, queens, governors, and generals. Drawing largely on the biblical accounts, Dr. Mark Rutland shows how these interactions, sometimes in the form of advice but more often as dramatic confrontations, demonstrate the tension between heaven’s authority and the princes of this world. Readers will discover that:
*God positions His messengers to confront and advise those who lead in the natural realm. Likewise, Satan is also working to position his own servants near the world’s leaders hoping to steer them away from the things and plans of God. To whom those leaders listen will determine, to a large extent, the fate of nations.
*God often positions His servants at the right elbow of leaders in a wide range of disciplines, from business to education to entertainment to politics. Every believer should be open to being “God’s prophetic voice” in someone else’s life, whether that person is a child, a boss, or a town councilman. Likewise, every believer should be in constant prayer for and humbly sensitive to wise counsel sent from God as a gift of grace.
God makes and unmakes kings. When they can discern and listen to His voice, He sustains their well-wielded authority with His supernatural power.

Cambio Ha Cambiado – (Spanish)$14.99Add to cart
El filosofo griego Heraclito dijo que el cambio es la unica constante en la vida.
!Pero el mundo ha experimentado tanta agitacion desde enero de 2020 que el cambio en si mismo ha cambiado! En los negocios, las iglesias y las organizaciones sin fines de lucro, los lideres han quedado hechos polvo a medida que los eventos y los desafios pasan rapidamente. El ritmo del cambio se estaba acelerando antes… pero la pandemia presiono el pedal a fondo.
“Estamos en un punto de inflexion”, dice el arquitecto de liderazgo y estratega de cambio Sam Chand. “La forma en que eran las cosas no es la forma en que seran las cosas”.
En su nuevo libro El cambio ha cambiado, Sam se propone ayudar a los lideres a comprender la naturaleza evolutiva del cambio para que puedan guiar a sus organizaciones con sabiduria y confianza.
El autor examina tres cambios importantes que compara con tres terremotos simultaneos:
– Nuestro ambiente ha cambiado. La gente trabaja desde casa, es posible que muchos negocios nunca vuelvan a abrir, y la forma en que compramos, manejamos las necesidades de salud e incluso vamos a la iglesia ha cambiado.
– Nosotros hemos cambiado. Hemos aprendido a vivir con una incertidumbre desenfrenada y una balsa llena de temores persistentes, !pero nuestros cuerpos y nuestras almas no estaban hechos para esto!
– Las personas que nos rodean han cambiado. Estan frustradas, aisladas, deprimidas, ansiosas y enojadas. Simplemente no se sienten seguras.
Sam enfrenta estos y otros problemas relacionados ofreciendo lecciones que capacitaran a los lideres a estar preparados para la proxima normalidad. “Soliamos hablar de una nueva normalidad como si fuera el punto final del cambio”, explica Sam, “pero si hemos aprendido algo en los ultimos meses, es que el cambio es perpetuo y tenemos que anticipar el proximo cambio en el horizonte”.
The Greek philosopher Heraclitus said change is the only constant in life.
But the world has experienced so much upheaval since January 2020 that change itself has changed! In business, the church, and nonprofits, leaders are being left in the dust as events and challenges speed by in a blur. The pace of change was accelerating before…but the pandemic pressed the pedal to the floor.
“We’re at an inflection point,” says leadership architect and change strategist Sam Chand. “The way things were isn’t the way things will be.”

In business, the church, and nonprofits, leaders are being left in the dust as events and challenges speed by in a blur. The pace of change was accelerating before…but the pandemic pressed the pedal to the floor.
“We’re at an inflection point,” says leadership architect and change strategist Sam Chand. “The way things were isn’t the way things will be.”
In his new book Change Has Changed, Sam sets out to help leaders understand the evolving nature of change so that they can guide their organizations with wisdom and confidence.
He examines three major shifts that he likens to three simultaneous earthquakes:
*Our environment has changed. People are working from home, many businesses may never reopen, and the way we shop, handle health needs, and even go to church has changed.
*We have changed. We’ve learned to live with rampant uncertainty and a raft full of nagging fears–but our bodies and our souls weren’t meant for this!
*The people around ushave changed. They are frustrated, isolated, depressed, anxious, and angry. They just don’t feel safe.
Sam tackles these and related issues head-on by offering lessons that will empower leaders to be ready for the next normal.
“We used to talk about a new normal as if it’s the end point of change,” Sam explains, “but if we’ve learned anything in the past months, it’s that change is perpetual, and we need to anticipate the next one on the horizon.”

Innovation Crisis : Creating Disruptive Influence In The Ministry You Lead$16.99Add to cart
If you aren’t innovating, stagnation isn’t far away.
Ministry leaders carry the burden of keeping their organizations lean, focused, and relevant. The stakes are especially high for churches and other organizations that fulfill the Great Commission. When souls are on the line, there’s no room for bureaucratic bloat or sustaining a cumbersome infrastructure. It’s up to the leadership-that’s you-to realize where the organization is in maintenance mode and find ways to innovate even when the growth curve has slowed and the team has started to grow complacent.
Using missions disruptor William Carey as an example, Ted Esler shows how you, too, can innovate in ways that change the ministry landscape. Esler will help you keep an eye on your “eccliosystem”-the ecclesial ecosystem in which you exist. You’ll learn about the four stages of organizational culture-disrupting, innovating, sustaining, and stagnating-and gain strategies for staying in that sweet spot where innovations keep coming and stagnation can’t take hold.
The gospel of Jesus Christ never grows stale. Don’t let your ministry ever forget it!

“Es que el liderazgo y el exito no se construyen solo con carisma…Muchas veces, lo que destruye lo que construimos no son, necesariamente, los grandes, obvios y visibles enemigos, sino aquellos pequeos que no atendemos o eliminamos a tiempo”, escribe Adolfo Aguero Esgaib en su nuevo libro Ladrones del exito. De sus experiencias como empresario y pastor, el autor lanza una alerta contra los 10 “principios” que impiden a las personas alcanzar el exito que buscan. Hace un recorrido en cada uno, ayudando al lector a identificarlo dentro de si, explicando el efecto de cada uno: victimizacion, orgullo, ingratitud, trabajar solo, falta de vision, falta de caracter o caracter deformado, mediocridad, falta de empatia, irresponsabilidad y falta de integridad.

“It is that leadership and success are not built only with charisma … Many times, what destroys what we build are not, necessarily, the big, obvious, and visible enemies, but those little ones that we do not attend or eliminate in time”, he writes Adolfo Aguero Esgaib in his new book Thieves of success. From his experiences as a businessman and pastor, the author warns against the 10 “principles” that prevent people from achieving the success they seek. He takes a tour of each one, helping the reader to identify it within himself, explaining the effect of each one: victimization, pride, ingratitude, working alone, lack of vision, lack of character or deformed character, mediocrity, lack of empathy, irresponsibility, and lack of integrity. Along with this awareness, we find the management recommendations, solutions, and changes to catch these thieves and capture our future.
Big Results Leadership$17.99Add to cart
The success of any leadership is all too often pointed to the characteristics of good leadership. The reality is that many of us are fully aware of the qualities of a good leader. Book after book in the pastoral community may light the path to good leadership but rarely gives us the markers that allow us to discern if we are still moving in the right direction.
Big Results: Leadership tackles that obstacle by guiding our future leaders in their early steps but also points to the “results” of that kind of leadership. The main take away from this read is that God-centered leadership always yields big results.
Discipled Leader : Inspiration From A Fortune 500 Executive For Transformin$24.99Add to cart
Preston Poore has spent decades in corporate America. Despite all the excellent advice he was given for growing in leadership, there was something missing: a way to bring his Christian beliefs to bear in his professional life, not just his personal life. So Preston sought his own answer to how his faith could impact his management of hundreds of employees.
What he discovered was this: the first step wasn’t adjusting his leadership style. Instead, he needed to let God change him before he could effect real change in his workplace. And in order to model discipleship to his team, he needed to first be discipled by the Spirit. Here, in the day-to-day practice of being a disciple of Jesus Christ, Poore found where his faith and exceptional leadership intersect.
Through personal stories, biblical principles, and hands-on workplace guidance, Poore offers readers a unique look at this seldom-discussed connection. He challenges struggling leaders to engage in the hard work of daily discipleship. And he charges experienced leaders to return to the fundamentals of their faith, encouraging them to disciple other Christians with leadership potential.
For anyone wrestling with how to bring faith to the workplace, whether it be a cubicle or a boardroom, Discipled Leader reveals that leadership doesn’t begin behind the desk–it begins in the soul.
