Overview

What is at the heart of faithful leadership for those who lead or aspire to lead?
In one fulsome volume Stephen R. Graves and Thomas G. Addington— the cofounders of the popular magazine Life@Work— include contributions from the best and brightest minds currently writing on the topic of business leadership and spirituality. Life@Work on Leadership includes meaningful reflections on topics such as integrity, ambition, promises, roles, charisma, followership, tasks, and character.

This anthology of carefully selected readings from the very best leadership authors— John P. Kotter, Max De Pree, James M. Kouzes, Barry Z. Posner, Robert K. Greenleaf, and David A. Nadler, among others— clearly illustrates what it means to be a spiritual leader. Written with busy executives and managers in mind, each chapter examines a key word that serves as a springboard into important concepts of leadership. Each chapter also includes intriguing questions and suggestions to help you take action based on ideas in the readings.

Life@Work on Leadership will serve as a thought-provoking exploration of leadership and a much-needed blueprint for Christian leaders who want to fully integrate their faith into their work.
