Transforming Leadership: Jesus' Way of Creating Vision, Shaping Values and Empowering Change

Overview

Given our all-too-human feelings of inadequacy," Leighton Ford writes, "how can Jesus be taken as our leadership model? If he is unique, if he is the Son of God, does that not put him in a category which is light-years beyond us? And what relevance can a leader like that have for us?" In this inspiring book, Ford recognizes the doubts and weaknesses of leaders as well as their strengths and confidences. He does not saddle already-overburdened leaders with another set of impossibly demanding tasks. Instead, he ...

Overview

Given our all-too-human feelings of inadequacy," Leighton Ford writes, "how can Jesus be taken as our leadership model? If he is unique, if he is the Son of God, does that not put him in a category which is light-years beyond us? And what relevance can a leader like that have for us?" In this inspiring book, Ford recognizes the doubts and weaknesses of leaders as well as their strengths and confidences. He does not saddle already-overburdened leaders with another set of impossibly demanding tasks. Instead, he calls his readers to recognize the unique and refreshing vision of leadership modeled by Jesus. Ford insists that Jesus' model of leadership does not paralyze, but empowers. "When I have false ideas of my strength, Jesus Christ exposes my incompetence," he writes. "When I feel totally beyond my depth, he provides for me God's enabling power." This is not another leadership how-to manual. It is a book for leaders who want to look anew, and thoroughly, at the powerful ministry of Jesus. Only so will they become leaders who create vision, shape values and empower change.
