BOOK EXCERPT:

Practical Lessons in Leadership offers career and start-up guidance for aspiring or new leaders, and pragmatic recommendations for leaders who want to develop strong teams and drive outstanding results. Practical Lessons is geared for leaders at all stages of the leadership lifecycle (new, early career or experienced) struggling to cope with a hypercompetitive global environment and a rapidly changing, inexperienced and highly mobile workforce. These visible and predictable macro trends require that the need to identify and develop leadership talent is at the top of every organization's strategy plan. Tomorrow's knowledge worker will face pressure to lead teams, projects and companies, but will lack the experience and guidance for management that the boomers take with them into retirement. Practical Lessons fills a critical gap in existing leadership content, by posing leadership as a conscious choice and then providing the tools and approaches necessary for professionals at all stages of the leadership lifecycle to understand their role, establish fundamental practices, integrate their actions with the organization's strategy, motivate and inspire their teams, and drive great results. In the opening portion of Practical Lessons, the aspiring professional gains a clear vision of the role and responsibilities of a leader, as well as helpful tools to assess whether this difficult role fits with their interests and skills. The remainder and majority of the book arms the new or experienced leader with practical approaches for important topics, including building credibility, starting with a new team, integrating activities with organizational strategy, identifying and developing talent, and creating a culture of innovation and operational excellence. For the early career professional, aspiring leader or experienced manager, Practical Lessons offers a wealth of insight and direction for succeeding in this most challenging of professions during a period in time when leadership talent is increasingly viewed as a strategic asset.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Have you ever deeply wondered what's holding you back from living your purposefully purposeful life? Maybe it is the residual effects from adverse childhood experiences. Perhaps it is an unhealed wound, a deeply-seeded insecurity, a painful divorce, or an untimely death of a loved one. All of these things have somehow, and in some way, taken the lead, even if for one moment, over areas in your life that consequently create barriers to your purpose. In the Leadership Core, Glynis practically outlines five core leadership lessons in Purpose, Process, Pain, Prescription, and People to help remove the barriers to destiny. In the world of physical fitness, the body’s core is very important. It is the working together of the pelvis, lower back, hips, and abdomen to add balance, strength, and stability to the rest of the body’s muscles. Likewise, these core leadership lessons are designed to support and strengthen the core of your leadership ability as you navigate life fulfilling your God-given purpose.

BOOK EXCERPT:

WHAT’S CHALLENGING YOUR LEADERSHIP? THE BIBLE HAS AN ANSWER! If you’re trying to influence even one person, you are a leader. And that means you’re facing challenges. The more you lead, the greater the number of challenges you face. How do you solve them? Dr. John C. Maxwell has been exploring these issues and helping leaders with them for decades. Where did Maxwell, recently named the #1 leadership and management expert in the world by Inc. magazine, gain such insight into leadership? From the Bible! John asserts that the Bible is the greatest leadership book that has ever been written. In this study, John addresses twenty-one of the most common issues leaders face. Starting with internal issues such as identity, purpose, pride, and self-leadership, and moving on to others such as criticism, change, diversity, teamwork and recruiting, John shows how leaders in the Bible addressed these issues with boldness and clarity, or, conversely, how they failed to lead. Either way, the lessons are clear. You can improve your leadership for not only your own sake, but also for that of your team and those you serve. In this twenty-one lesson study, John guides you through Scriptures that reveal the challenges leaders face and the solutions available to them. Each lesson includes: THE ISSUE DEFINED: a brief description and introduction to the Issue CASE STUDIES: THREE BIBLICAL STUDIES: including leaders such as Joseph, Moses, Ruth, David, Nehemiah, Peter, Titus, and Jesus—that reveal and illustrate the Issue STUDY QUESTIONS: reflection and application questions to help you dig into the stories of the men and women in Scripture and learn from them LEADERSHIP INSIGHT AND REFLECTION: questions to help you assess and improve your own leadership skills TAKING ACTION: practical takeaways and direction to help you incorporate each lesson into your daily life GROUP DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: questions to help you learn and process the Bible study material with other like-minded people who want to grow in leadership Start with the issues where you most need help, complete the entire study as a course in problem solving, or meet with your team, using it as their next training in leadership development. 21 Leadership Issues in the Bible can help you become a better leader in any area of your life as you seek to influence others for Christ.
