Overview

What if experienced leaders condensed the knowledge contained in thousands of leadership books into potent principles? What if they crafted these principles into sayings, which were succinct, forceful, to the point and often spiced with an element of wit? What you would have would be what you hold in your hands, Leadership Proverbs, a resource unlike any other that, like a diamond focusing light, cuts through the verbosity of many resources and provides a treasure-trove of guidance gems. These pithy sayings communicate truths most memorably. Their brevity and clarity facilitate their usage for would-be leaders in every walk of life: teachers, pastors, business people, students, politicians, doctors, fathers, and mothers. Experienced leaders will use them to remind themselves of core principles and to teach others. Neophytes will read and remember them as axioms to guide their development. Proverbs are not only an enduring form of communication; they are one of the most viral. They are easily memorized. They change behavior and enhance skills. They are readily passed on to others. They are the germs of an infectious leadership movement.At the same time, remember to be a really great leader, you must follow the greatest leader that ever lived, Jesus Christ. He will give you insight showing you where to apply these principles and the discipline to adhere to them.

Frank Lofaro
I love this new book. Wisdom flows through the hundreds of
uplifting, thought provoking sayings. Let the wisdom of this
book help you become the leader God is calling you to be. Every
Christian leader should have this book on his or her desk.
Sandra Gray
Leadership Proverbs delivers profound wisdom and timeless
insight into the opportunities and challenges of leadership.
Those seeking to lead from a Christian world view within a
contemporary context will greatly benefit from a daily reading.
Dan Busby
What a marvelous book filled with insight and wisdom! Inspired,
and inspiring — helping leaders to lead wisely.
Doug Carter
It has been my joy to know David Stevens and Bert Jones for
many years. They are proven leaders. In Leadership Proverbs they
have combined wit, wisdom and years of leadership experience
to provide pithy statements that capture the essence of
leadership. This book is a quick and easy read, but its principles
are powerfully profound and will enhance your eff ectiveness as a
leader of leaders.
Franklin Graham
I have known David Stevens for 30 years. I first met him when he
was a surgeon at Tenwek Hospital. Later he came to work with
me here at Samaritan’s Purse heading up our medical ministry,
World Medical Mission. I appreciate the leadership he has given
to the Christian Medical & Dental Associations and am grateful
for his friendship. I think you will find his latest book, Leadership
Proverbs, filled with lots of catchy hooks.
