LEARN LEADERSHIP QUALITIES FROM THE GREATEST BOOK EVER WRITTEN AND BECOME A LEADER PEOPLE WANT TO FOLLOW

Where do you turn to learn leadership? Business experts? Management consultants? Theoreticians? The world of politics? Why not learn from the Bible--the original leadership book!

In this study, John digs deep into the Bible to teach twenty-one indispensable qualities found in the men and women who led God's people God's way. These essential traits will help you to lead with integrity in every area of your life.

In twenty-one lessons, John guides you to develop the core qualities all good leaders exhibit. Each lesson includes:

  • THE QUALITY DEFINED: a brief description and introduction to the Quality
  • CASE STUDIES: three biblical studies--including leaders such as Joshua, David, Ruth, Nathan, Esther, Elijah, Stephen, John, Titus, and Jesus--that reveal and illustrate the Quality
  • STUDY QUESTIONS: reflection and application questions to help you dig into the stories of the men and women in Scripture and learn from them
  • LEADERSHIP INSIGHT AND REFLECTION: questions to help you assess and improve your own leadership skills
  • TAKING ACTION: practical takeaways and direction to help you incorporate the quality from each lesson into your daily life
  • GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: questions to help you learn and process the Bible study material with other like-minded people who want to grow in leadership
  • Leadership is for everyone, because every person who accepts Christ is called to influence others. And the good news is that everyone can develop the leadership qualities exemplified by the men and women of the Bible.

    This workbook has been designed to enhance readers' experience of working through John Maxwell's leadership materials and is intended both for individual use and for small groups.

    "The 4 Disciplines of Execution is a book every leader should read." --Clayton Christensen, Professor, Harvard Business School, and author of The Innovator's Dilemma

    For fans of Good to Great and The First 90 Days, The Four Disciplines of Execution is the foundational text for creating lasting organizational change.

    Do you remember the last major initiative you watched die in your organization? Did it go down with a loud crash? Or was it slowly and quietly suffocated by other competing priorities? By the time it finally disappeared, it's likely no one even noticed. What happened?

    Often, the answer is that the "whirlwind" of urgent activity required to keep things running day-to-day devoured all the time and energy you needed to invest in executing your strategy for tomorrow. The 4 Disciplines of Execution can change that forever.

    The 4 Disciplines of Execution (4DX) is a simple, repeatable, and proven formula for executing your most important strategic priorities in the midst of the whirlwind. By following the 4 Disciplines--Focus on the Wildly Important; Act on Lead Measures; Keep a Compelling Scoreboard; Create a Cadence of Accountability--leaders can produce breakthrough results, even when executing the strategy requires a significant change in behavior from their teams.

    4DX is not theory. It is a proven set of practices that have been tested and refined by hundreds of organizations and thousands of teams over many years. When a company or an individual adheres to these disciplines, they achieve superb results, regardless of the goal. 4DX represents a new way to think and work that is essential to thriving in today's competitive climate. The 4 Disciplines of Execution is one book that no business leader can afford to miss.

    Learn Ministry from One of the Best

    When Bob Russell became the pastor of Southeast Christian Church, it was just 120 people meeting in a basement. When he retired forty years later, it was nearing 20,000.

    Though Bob's ministry was a clear success, he'd be the first to say it wasn't perfect. In After 50 Years of Ministry he shares why. He reflects on the best of what he's learned--sometimes the hard way--about ministry and leadership, like how to:

  • Respond to criticism
  • Protect your marriage
  • Stop comparing yourself to other pastors
  • Handle a staff moral failure
  • Prioritize preaching in your schedule
  • Build trust with your elders
  • Make the best use of downtime
  • Hilarious, warm, and full of great stories and illustrations, After 50 Years of Ministry is sage advice from a faithful servant of God. If you are in leadership of any kind, don't miss this chance to learn from one of the best.

    What makes a leader a Christian leader? Too many churches and parachurch groups operate under secular leadership principles and strategies without considering what Scripture teaches. In this accessible and comprehensive book, leadership expert Aubrey Malphurs articulates a working definition of Christian leadership based on the Bible and his own extensive research.
    Malphurs begins by defining a uniquely Christian leader from the inside out, from godly character and commitment to pure motives and a servant attitude. He examines the leaders of the first-century church and then discusses qualities such as credibility, capability, and influence that are essential for successful leadership. Each chapter contains helpful questions for reflection and discussion. The appendix includes numerous audits to help readers evaluate themselves on various leadership components.
    Being Leaders is the first book of a two-part series on leadership. The companion book will address the how-to of building leaders.

    Over the Past few decades mainline Protestant congregations have not easily embraced the notion of spirituality. As much as any aspect of church life, spirituality has been misunderstood, misused, and resisted by both clergy and laity. Yet times are changing. Today many people feel a deep spiritual hunger and are out looking for fulfillment in a wide variety of settings. In this new context, mainline congregations need to awaken to the presence of the Spirit in their midst and equip leaders to nurture both the personal and corporate spirituality of their congregations. Beyond the Ordinary is explicitly written to help church leaders who have had no formal training in spiritual formation. Drawing from years of experience teaching Christian spirituality, Ben Campbell Johnson and Andrew Dreitcer explore the spiritual dimensions of leadership, looking in depth at the meaning of spirituality as it relates to the tasks of ministry. This friendly, inspiring book will enable readers to erase the negative stereotypes of spirituality and develop vital models and practices for the church today. The book introduces a faithful understanding and practice of the spiritual life to those who have not yet dipped into the well that is Christian spirituality. For those who have already tasted this water and still thirst, it offers a way to dip even more deeply. Chapters discuss the issues surrounding a meaningful spirituality for our changing times, the importance of holding prayer and mission in tension, and the crucial role of Scripture in the formation of our lives. The authors also underscore the importance of vision, myth, and discernment in the spiritual life of the church. And they discuss the power of spiritual practices like discernment and visioning for enhancing the spirituality of congregations and helping them become agents of social transformation. Intended for personal and group use by pastors, elders, other church leaders, and those preparing for service in the church, the book includes questions for reflection and discussion as well as journaling exercises to encourage learning and growth.

    The bedrock grounding of church leaders is in God. This grounding comes through deliberate and explicit attention to God through prayer and self-reflection. Leadership as vocation, Christian leadership, begins with self-leadership, clarifying one's own heart, one's whole being, and one's mind in order to find and show that one's most basic identity and deepest and most concrete security lie in God--not in success or in pleasing someone else or in being seen as a good person or being loved by a congregation or the faith community we lead.

    Contents includes:

  • The Vocation of Leadership
  • The Shape of Our Vocation
  • Lessons From the Saints
  • What is Good Ministry?
  • The Persons We Are and the Institutions We Serve
  • The Preacher and Preaching
  • Taking Care of Ourselves in the Everyday
  • Time: It's Ours to Receive, Use, and Manage
  • Staying Alive All Our Ministry Life
