    Leadership books are very enlightening and empowering, howeve

    Leadership books are very enlightening and empowering, however, as I began to read this book, I felt as though the author was very repetitive. As I continued to read, I found the information discussed to be very valuable. Leaders can be found in all walks of life and they have the choice of leading in a positive or negative way. Every leader is not tasked with leading a large organization but the principles discussed in this book can be beneficial to a variety of leaders. Leadership qualities combined with Christian beliefs produce outstanding leaders. Leaders, whether Christian or secular are influential to those they lead. As stated by the author, leaders are teachers and those they teach benefit from their knowledge. The author makes some very valid points. Leaders should be trustworthy, confident in their ability to lead, competent in decision making and capable of using the power that they have been entrusted, understanding that the power is not for the purpose of glorifying themselves. Christian leaders do have to be mindful that they are followers of Christ and will be held accountable and judged accordingly. And finally we get to the leader’s legacy. Convictional leaders endure until the end. Striving to see their fundamental beliefs passed on to others. The Conviction To Lead plants the seed to lead faithfully and with conviction as leaders are called to do. This book will serve leaders or potential leaders well. Thank you Bethany House for allowing me to share my opinion. Also for giving me the opportunity to select a great book and providing copy free of charge.
