Overview

Best-selling authors Kenneth Blanchard, Bill Hybels, and Phil Hodges offer a unique, compelling, and paradigm-shifting model that effectively interweaves successful leadership methods with character development principles based on the teachings of history's most influential leader, Jesus Christ. Told in the parable format of The One Minute Manager and Raving Fans, Leadership by the Book offers unexpected and exceptional answers to crucial leadership issues today - helping leaders in all walks of life to fulfill their calling and help others do the same.

Is there any common ground between leadership success strategies on one hand, and the Biblical principles regarding character on the other?

Yes! And this new book - from three of America's most successful and compassionate leaders - clearly and creatively explains the answer. With unique value for leaders of all kinds, Leadership by the Book interweaves character development principles with successful leadership methods - using the example and words of Jesus as the catalyst and framework for it all.

The framework for the sound and practical teachings of this unique and powerful book is a story about three acquaintances who each have something vital to learn. One is a businessman who, after years of fabulous success, finally comes face to face with the emptiness in his soul. His struggle becomes critical when a heart attack leaves him hovering near death. This crisis brings together two figures from his past - a teacher of leadership strategies, and a successful pastor. Their renewed interaction leads them all to deeper discoveries of the value of biblical leadership principles.

In Leadership by the Book readers - particularly company presidents, corporate leaders, middle managers, department heads, parents, coaches, community leaders, pastors, lay leaders, and others - will learn the very practical side of Christ's teachings on leadership. And they'll learn that truly effective leadership cannot be divorced from the character issues that Jesus taught.

    Lead by Serving

    This book was given to me as a gift by a minister at my church, who happens to be friends with Ken Blanchard, one of the authors of this book. Seeing as how I am an upwardly mobile young professional, I thought it looked pretty good. This book is both a story and a manifesto, of sorts. Both Ken Blanchard and Bill Hybels appear as characters in the book, as they help a friend of theirs recover his spiritual life while he recovers from a heart attack. During this time, Ken and Bill lay out a plan for building 'Servant Leaders,' a concept that they tutor their friend in. I was unsatisfied by this book. First, it is rather short. The line spacing is too wide, so not enough words are on each page; it's almost a large print edition. Second, they constantly beat the 'servant leader' drum, which is fine and dandy, and something that I fully agree with. However, it ends up reading like an advertisement for the 'Center for Servant Leadership' (or whatever it's called; can't remember right now) that they plan on forming. I am glad I didn't pay $20 just to find out that they are going to put together a center to teach this stuff. Bottom line, I can't recommend this book, at least not for full price. Its concepts have already been covered before, and this book really doesn't add anything new. The story-like prose may work well for some people, however.

    Serving others is the secret to true Leadership

    This book gets to the heart of leadership, literally! Blanchard et al are right on target suggesting that behavior is not only initiated by the head, but also the heart. Written in a parable sequence, this book provides easy-to-use ideas that can be used by veteran and novice leaders alike.
