Beyond Illusionby Carl Townsend
There is no doubt that we see a failure of leadership today. Political leaders are unable to forge a path out of two wars we were led into by lies and greed. Today we see the economic system that has fueled capitalism for years is collapsing from greed and mismanagement. Much of the existing leadership has been unwilling to change, passing the costs of their selfishness and mismanagement to the next generations and the generations after them. Paradigms of the past remain only as illusions and no longer work. What does real leadership today look like?
Beyond Illusion: Leading from Reality takes a hard look at what is missing in today's leadership using, as effective models, outstanding leaders in the Bible such as Nehemiah, Moses, and Jesus. If you want to be a leader today, you will find essential clues in this book as well as stories that show you how you can lead in transforming your community, nation, and in the world.
