Understanding Leadership

What does it mean to be a leader? How does a person lead? And what are the features that distinguish leaders from other people in the organization, and their role from other roles or functions? Based on years of proven experience and scholarly biblical insight, Tom Marshall opens up fresh perspectives on the essence of leadership. He describes how and why it is distinct from management, administration, or ministry and provides readers with the tools necessary to implement successful, long-term leadership. Christian leaders will find clear guidance on topics such as foresight, trust, criticism, caring, status, timing, failure, honor, and the dangers of power. Packed with contemporary examples and New Testament truths, Understanding Leadership also identifies the critical capacities and characteristics of a leader. It emphasizes lifestyle, attitudes, and relationships, helping today's leaders foster interdependence while maintaining identity and integrity within their church, business, or community.

"I highly commend this book and urge every spiritual leader to study it carefully.

Making a Leadership Change

Turnover at the top can stimulate great changes throughout an organization. These changes can mean low morale, decreased productivity, rumors, and political infighting-or they can revitalize working relationships and opportunities to rethink outdated assumptions and forge new directions. In this book Thomas North Gilmore, a consultant to leaders in business and government, shows how executives in new positions-as well as those overseeing leadership changes-can capitalize on these opportunities and minimize the risks of making changes at the top. Frances Hesselbein, Founding President of the Peter Drucker Foundation and now Chairman of Leader To Leader Institute calls Making a Leadership Change, "The best book I know on this subject. In my last year as CEO of Girl Scouts, my year of leadership transition, I bought copies for my management team and the officers as an essential resource. I use it today -- the most helpful gift I know for a leader in transition."
