Big Results Leadership

Big Results Leadership

by Mark Croston


View All Available Formats & Editions


The success of any leadership is all too often pointed to the characteristics of good leadership. The reality is that many of us are fully aware of the qualities of a good leader. Book after book in the pastoral community may light the path to good leadership but rarely gives us the markers that allow us to discern if we are still moving in the right direction.

Big Results: Leadership tackles that obstacle by guiding our future leaders in their early steps but also points to the “results” of that kind of leadership. The main take away from this read is that God-centered leadership always yields big results.
