Engaging and straightforward, The Faith of Leadership is a distillation of Alm's eight keys to great leadership: listening, humility, working with resistance to change, remembering whose change we are talking about, walking the talk and integrity, making certain we always hear independent voices, understanding how others see the world and, finally, the faith that underlies leadership.
Real-life lessons and key examples from local companies and individuals provide a simple foundation for Alm's discussion of the qualities of excellent leadership. The Faith of Leadership offers a series of guideposts for mapping a life path to becoming a good leader. Excellence in leadership, Alm believes, is less about wealth and power and more about positivity and serving as a good model. The faith of leadership lies in setting a course that will accomplish what is rightand accepting the challenge of working on a problem that may not be solved in the near future.

I must first virtually recuse myself, since I have met Robbie, spend some quality time at his home, and have participated in the most amazing movement I've ever dreamt... This being said, here's my, as objective as I can be, review: This book goes far beyond it's title. Truly indescribably useful, helpful, insightful, informational...and most of all Inspirational. These can just as easily be said of it's Author, Robbie Alm, whom I consider as my friend.
