The Revolution Has Only Just Begun Twenty-five years ago Robert Greenleaf published these prophetic essays on what he coined servant leadership, a practical philosophy that replaces traditional autocratic leadership with a holistic, ethical approach. This highly influential book has been embraced by cutting edge management everywhere. Yet in these days of Enron and what VISA CEO Dee Hock calls our era of massive institutional failure, Greenleaf's seminal work must reach the mainstream now more than ever. Servant Leadership-- - helps leaders find their true power and moral authority to lead. - helps those served become healthier, wiser, freer, and more autonomous. - encourages collaboration, trust, listening, and empowerment. - offers long-lasting change, not a temporary fix. - extends beyond business for leaders of all types of groups. +

A fresh look at what it means to lead from two of the biggest names in leadership

In these turbulent times, when the very foundations of organizations and societies are shaken, leaders need to move beyond pessimistic predictions, trendy fads, and simplistic solutions. They need to turn to what's real and what's proven. In their engaging, personal, and bold new book, bestselling authors James Kouzes and Barry Posner reveal ten time-tested truths that discuss what every leader must know, the questions they must be prepared to answer, and the real-world issues they will likely face.

In the book, you'll find:

  • Material based on thirty years of research, more than one million responses to Kouzes and Posner's leadership assessment, and the questions people most want leaders to answer
  • Explorations of the fundamental, enduring truths of leadership that hold constant regardless of context or circumstance-leaders make a difference, credibility, values, trust, leading by example, heart, and more
  • Demonstrations of emerging leaders and what they need to know to be effective
  • Fans of The Leadership Challenge will find a dynamic new look at the real challenges leaders face today. The book draws from cases spanning three generations of leaders from around the world. It's an indispensable resource leaders can use to do their real and necessary work-bringing about the essential changes that will renew organizations and communities.

    Amid the torrent of books on leadership that flood the marketplace of contemporary Christianity, UnCorinthian Leadership takes a fresh, challenging, and biblical approach. David Starling examines the teaching and leadership practices of Paul in 1 Corinthians, and finds both a sharp critique of the "Corinthianized" practices that are endemic in much modern Western Christianity and a positive, compelling theological vision for how leadership ought to function among the people of Christ. The account of Christian leadership that emerges is grounded in careful, contextual study of 1 Corinthians, and thoughtfully applied to the circumstances and cultural pressures of our own times. Paying close attention to the situation Paul addresses and the shape of his arguments, Starling highlights the vivid relevance and enduring power of the letter. Students of 1 Corinthians will find an illuminating guide to the contemporary application of the letter; Christian leaders and students of leadership will find a refreshingly biblical account of what makes Christian leadership Christian. "Many speak and write of 'Christian leaders' and 'servant leadership' as if the categories were self-evident--and certainly it is easy to bless almost any label with a few proof-texts. This little book by David Starling is a fresh antidote. By paying close attention to 1 Corinthians, he demonstrates how . . . the Apostle Paul works out a decidedly 'unCorinthian' vision that is in line with the gospel and that has the power to revolutionize our thinking and relationships." --Don Carson, author of The Cross and Christian Ministry "Worldly attitudes and behavior on the part of the Corinthian congregation prompted a body of godly instruction from the Apostle Paul. David Starling mines that apostolic instruction for leadership insights, badly needed in our own Corinthian times. Thoughtful and well written, UnCorinthian Leadership will be a bracing read for Christian leaders everywhere." --Duane Litfin, author of St. Paul's Theology of Proclamation "No book in the New Testament has more to say about Christian leadership than 1 Corinthians. . . . While commentaries on 1 Corinthians abound, none address this question adequately for Christian leaders in our day. And the need is great, with worldly leadership doing considerable harm, both to the church and the progress of the gospel. David Starling's exploration of gospel-shaped leadership is a searching blend of rigorous exegesis and insightful application. I recommend it heartily." --Brian Rosner, co-author of The First Letter to the Corinthians (PNTC) "Here is a very fine exposition of select chapters of 1 Corinthians against its first-century cultural setting, along with many sensitive and searching applications to our own Christian contexts. . . . This little book contains an amazing array of searching, refreshing, and powerful instruction. It is presented in a courteous, sensitive, and self-critical manner as the author applies the word of God to himself and urges other Christians to follow his lead. Highly recommended." --Peter O'Brien, author of Gospel and Mission in the Writings of Paul David I. Starling is Senior Lecturer in New Testament and Theology at Morling College in Sydney, Australia. He is the author of Not My People: Gentiles as Exiles in Pauline Hermeneutics (2011) and the coeditor of Theology and the Future: Evangelical Assertions and Explorations (2014).

    Unconventional leadership in uncommon timesWhat kind of leader would you be if you were suddenly handed more power?

    George, Brad, Brianna and Nate are connected by their jobs; the four of them make up the IT department at Handover Corporation. They also represent four distinct generations: the Silent Generation (1925 1942), Boomers (1943 1960), GenXers (1961 1981) and Millennials (1982 2002). They all have their own specialty and when the day is done they go their separate ways that is, until the company sends them on a white-water rafting trip to encourage team building. Surviving the rapids, they return to work to discover that their CEO is stepping down, sending the company into a tumultuous transition. They rely on the skills they have just learned in order to survive and remain in the boat together.This work of business fiction is written to help leaders of all types of organizations, as they deal with leadership succession between the generations. As the workplace continues to grow in diversity, with four generations firmly represented, evidence is growing that there are differences between the generations related to leadership values and behavior. Those dissimilarities create turbulence like that found in white-water rapids. But there is a safe way to navigate through them. Regardless of the leadership transition you are facing, this book will equip you with practical skills to navigate it more successfully.

    Revised and updated edition of the classic work on spiritual leadership

    In A Work of Heart, bestselling author and missional expert Reggie McNeal helps leaders reflect on the ways in which God is shaping them by letting us see God at work in the lives of four quintessential biblical leaders: Moses, David, Jesus, and Paul. McNeal identifies the formative influences upon these leaders, which he sees as God's ways of working in their lives: the same influences at work today forming leaders for ministry in our times. He explores the shaping influence of culture, call, community, conflict, and the commonplace.

  • Offers guidance for church leaders to let God shape their hearts from the inside out
  • Reggie McNeal is the author of the bestselling book Missional Renaissance
  • Gives reassurance for maintaining perspective while doing the demanding work of ministry
  • The book includes illustrative stories of contemporary leaders opening their hearts to God's guidance.
