Overview

Will God's Leadership Principles Work for Me Today?

What is God's pattern for success?

How can I develop my full potential?

How can I motivate others?

How do I set goals for myself and others?

God has given believers in positions of leadership the answers to these and other vital questions. Through the example of one of history's greatest leaders, Nehemiah, God has given us principles of leadership which work as effectively in today's dynamic business world as they did centuries ago.

Cyril Barber brings out these biblical principles in a clear and effective way and he applies them to our contemporary world. By examining the challenges that Nehemiah faced, and looking at how he overcame them, the author shows how you can deal with the situations you face every day.

This newly revised and expanded edition includes study questions which will help you apply the principles as you learn them.

This is not another management book- It is a biblical leadership training course. The principles taught are essential for all in administrative positions: business people, foremen, managers, supervisors, teachers, church leaders, and even parents.
