Overview

For leaders who've read every leadership book (or just feel like they have) Most leaders feel like they've read all there is to read about leadership but are still frustrated when the tools of 'professionals' fail to work. Leadership Wisdom from Unlikely Voices takes leaders off the frustrating path of doing leadership and into the more meaningful place of being a leader. Rather than focusing on new tools or techniques, author Dave Fleming draws on the 'voices' of contemplative thinkers and their views on issues that affect leaders today. Nouwen, Augustine, Underhill, Benedict, and others offer readers insight from outside the world of leadership on how to regain the humanity of being a leader. Each chapter includes interactive exercises that allow readers to reflect on what they're learning, evaluate ideas, and then implement those ideas that resonate most.

Editorial Reviews

YouthWorker Journal
'Just when you thought that nothing more could possibly be wrriten about leadership, Fleming delivers a refreshing and insightful look at how the words of Mother Theresa, St. Augustine, and others can guide us... Not to be missed.' '... it stretched me in a way few books do. Worth reading devotionally, even if you're not a leader.' -- YouthWorker Journal
