    Next Generation Leader by Andy Stanley I wrote this review for t

    Next Generation Leader by Andy Stanley
    I wrote this review for the WaterBrook Multnomah's Blogging for Books Program.  The copy I reviewed I received free from the program.
    Leadership and leadership training is something I think I know about.  I may be a little bit of a snob when it comes to leadership.  On occasion Drexel University, where I am the Baptist Campus Minister, allows me to speak on certain topics within their Student Affairs leadership development program called CEO LEAD.
    So the first thing I did when picking up Andy Stanley's book on leadership was to check out the notes.  Who has he read?  Who does he cite?  Listed in the notes are John Maxwell, Stephen Covey, Kouzes and Posner, Bennis and Nanus, Max De Pree and Jim Collins.  That is a great list to start with.  Even if the book was just a summary of what those other authors say it would be a quality book.
    The awesome thing is that Stanley does more than summarize.  He communicates.  His book is simple.  His five essentials are easy to understand and apply.  His chapters move fast and are fun to read.  I love Kouzes and Posner's The Leadership Challenge but it is a 400 page text book.  Very seldom will a next generation leader sit down and read that with me. However, Stanley's accessible 165 page book is something I can see students reading.  And if they aren't able to read the whole thing, each chapter and section are outlined and teachable.  This book is designed to be taught.
    As far as the content, his five essentials, Competence, Courage, Clarity, Coachability and Character will create a great bedrock for future leaders.
    "You must discover and play to your strength and delegate your weaknesses.  You've got to be courageous, and you've got to be clear in the midst of uncertainty.  You need to find a leadership coach.  And along the way it is absolutely essential that you maintain your character." (p. 161)
    Tomorrow, I will be in a meeting with the supervisor for Baptist Campus Ministries and the Next Generation Team in the Greater Philadelphia area.  I will be suggesting to him to look at this book and see if we want to use it as a guide for the leadership development programming that we do with our students.  In other words, I'm recommending this book to my boss so I will definitely recommend it to you.

    Lead By Example In reviewing this book (Next Generation Leade



    Lead By Example
    In reviewing this book (Next Generation Leader) the author gives us various components in becoming better leaders. We understand that it’s a lot more to being a leader than being dominating and authoritative, but it’s about understanding your strengths and weaknesses.  It is being an effective change agent in that organization, showing responsibility and integrity. The author reminds us that we were born with leadership potential; some just have the courage to walk it out. 
    Being a leader is not as hard y as people think, it’s about passion and drive; what is your passion? What drives you to get revved up?  
    The Bible has many stories on leadership and the success thereof; leaders may not know everything, but they have the zeal to execute in getting the job done accurately. True Leaders look at failure as getting another opportunity to try it from a different angle, but never giving up. The author mentioned about leaders wearing two badges: one visible and one invisible; leaders must walk in what they talk about and live by. No one wants to follow a person whose actions are wavering back and forth in certainty.  I do recommend this book to leaders of all sorts; it is a golden nugget waiting to share its wisdom.

    Book Review: Next Generation Leader book by: Andy Stanley I love

    Book Review: Next Generation Leader
    book by: Andy Stanley
    I loved this book.  Andy Stanley had a great coaching writers voice.  The book was a fast easy read with many practical applications.  He weaved personal experiences in modestly.  I really enjoyed to questions for self evaluation at the end of each section (Courage, Competence, Clarity, Coachability, and Character).  One of the most useful applications for me was defining my current job situation and then laying out the qualities of my dream job.  I feel inspired to step up and display more courage in my work because of this book.  I highly recommend it!

    This was a quick read with 162 pages. I actually read it in one day. 

    While it was quick, I found myself just wanting to get through it so I could read something else. I guess i wasn't in the mood for self help books today! However, I did learn a few important concepts about being a leader.

    First, a good leader concentrates on the tasks he does well and delegates the rest to those who do those jobs well. This practice does not mean the leader is lazy, but is efficient.

    Secondly, a leader sees good opportunities and faces them with courage. One really great quote in the book is, "With fear come opportunities."

    Lastly, a leader makes decisions with clarity. Even when the leader does not feel 100% about the decision, he should never communicate that doubt to the ones working with him.

    All in all, this is a book worthy to be read by beginning leaders of all types (ministry, business, church, etc.)

    Singular in a Leader?

    I read this book. It has MANY great points. The hard to swallow thing about this read is that if you are not gifted or good in a certain aspect of leadership, you should delegate or not do that specific level or skillset. While I understand the point of what Mr. Stanley is communicating, I have found great success in working on being well-rounded as much as possible. I used to loathe detail work, planning and handling problem staff. But studying and surrounding myself with great reads like John Maxwell's books, I have learned that the things that I used to dislike have actually enhanced my ability to communicate and perform business every day.
