Overview

Bill Robinson helps Christian leaders understand how to provide effective leadership by highlighting five qualities that characterized the leadership style of Jesus. He presents convincing arguments that when leaders emulate these qualities, they will inspire and empower the people they have been called to lead. Reflection and discussion questions and assessment questions make this ideal for group use.
Conversational in tone and seasoned with real-life stories from his own successes and failures as a leader, Robinson helps Christian leaders wrestle with four questions that emerge from John’s introduction of Jesus, “and the word became flesh and dwelt among us….”
* Jesus dwelt with those he led, how can I be closer to those I lead?
* Jesus disciples beheld him, how can I be more transparent with those I lead?
* The glory of Jesus was a reflection of his father, am I seeking my own glory?
* Jesus led with grace and truth, how can I lead with grace and truth?
The Incarnate Leader is indispensable reading for anyone in a position of leadership – whether in a church setting, corporation, school board, or home. The book is packaged as a short one-evening read, similar to other popular business books.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
“This is the kind of book that could only be the fruit of long, honest, and self-critical experience. Bill Robinson looks at Jesus’ style of leadership: that Jesus dwelt with those he led, that he was seen by (transparent to) those he led, that he reflected his Father’s glory rather than hugged it to himself, that he spoke with both grace and truth. This is a truly Christian discernment of what might be wise action, gleaned always from within earshot of the cries of those in most need of help.” -- Iain Torrance

I experienced Bill Robinson’s inspirational leadership, ‘up close and personal,’ for about a decade at Whitworth. In this delightful and example-filled book, I learn how he does it: he is a deeply committed and very happy follower of Jesus of Nazareth---in the most remarkable and creative ways. May his kind multiply!” -- F. Dale Bruner

“Bill Robinson’s Incarnate Leadership is insightful, practical, and even inspiring. First, I am convinced that Bill has discerned correctly the central leadership priorities Jesus demonstrated in the Bible’s Gospels. I love Bill’s ‘plain talk.’ It helps me know that though this book is rooted in biblical truth and is set within well-developed leadership theory, it is also a down-to-earth guide toward how to lead in a way that honors God and genuinely helps people. The book will teach me how to go about my service in that very Jesus-like way.” -- Greg Waybright

“Incarnate Leadership is written by one who knows about leadership from a depth of experience. It rings with authenticity as does Bill Robinson himself. Frankly, I have not seen a book that challenges the reader quite like this one. The call to be transparent, real, and even authentic should speak to any who dares to lead.” -- Andrew K. Benton

Every follower of Jesus who is in a leadership position can benefit from this book. Bill Robinson captures the basic leadership practices and attitudes of Jesus that can undergird everything else we learn from the latest management literature. I just wish I could have read Incarnate Leadership forty years ago! -- John Huffman

This book offers a unique blending of Christological truth with dust and grit reality about leadership. Clearly, it was written by a leader who takes Jesus Christ more seriously than either our drive to succeed or our failings. Best of all, Robinson's relentless honesty demonstrates how the incarnate truth of Christ really does make the leader more effective. -- M. Craig Barnes

    Simply brilliant

    Whether a corporate leader, team leader or hourly employee, this book helps people understand people. I would consider it a common sense foundation to living life. When you live your life like this, the title of your job doesn't matter, it's who you are that matters. Excellent perspective, and very easy read.
