The Paradox of Power: A Transforming View of Leadershipby Pat Williams, James D. Denney, John C. Maxwell (Foreword by), Jim Denney (With)
As Senior Executive Vice President of the Orlando Magic, Pat Williams is known throughout the sports world as a consummate promoter and a keen talent scout. His boundless imagination and zany antics have led his team to victory since their very first season. But Williams' leadership philosophy is untraditional, to say the least. Now, he shares that unique philosophy, which bucks conventional management wisdom and is founded instead upon the Scriptures, using Jesus Christ as a leadership model. Examining the paradoxes that made Christ an exceptional leader, he then offers fascinating and instructive examples that make those principles relevant today. Successful leadership is not a matter of simply maximizing profits, but of striving to make this world a better place, and Williams shows how the paradoxical approach is so much more powerful than traditional leadership based on common sense.
Author Biography: Pat Williams is the author of 19 books. In addition to working with the Orlando Magic, he is also General Manager of RDV Sports, which includes teams in the NBA, the WNBA, and the IHL. He lives in Orlando, Florida.
