From the author of the bestseller A Man After God's Own Heart (more than 100,000 copies sold)—a survey of God's priorities for leaders as exhibited in the life of Nehemiah.
The Bible is filled with amazing people, and Nehemiah stands out prominently among them. What made him so effective, so influential? It starts with knowing what God desires in a leader. From Nehemiah's example, readers will learn 15 ways to lead with purpose. Among them are...
- giving direction to your leadership by cultivating a vision for the future
- solidifying your leadership by recognizing the value of conviction
- refining your leadership by acquiring problem-solving skills
- validating your leadership by pursuing personal integrity
