My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Quick read on leadership from John Perkins and Wayne Gordon. Sites a lot of the principles of what makes a leader from John Maxwell and Covey, but placed in the context of a church reaching it’s community.
Leadership qualities highlighted in the book: proactive, accessible, awareness, teach at every opportunity, authentic, give assignments, candid, persistent and develops the next generation.
Thoughts that stood out to me from this read:
Always take someone with you. If you are going to spend time going to a conference, retreat, errand etc. you might as well take someone with you whom you are developing. It will cost you no extra time.
A goal of leadership is to train yourself out of a job, much like a parent training a child to go on out on their own a good leader has an exit strategy.
