I was all in with the very first chapter....the introduction of the 11 Characteristics for great leadership qualities like Christ. As an executive level public servant trying to walk out my faith everyday. I'm left wondering how to balance leadership in a world now that wants quick sound bites, over quality human service care, a world where divisive rhetoric over is being pushed over principled humanity, integrity and leadership. Boyd's book gave me hope in a world going mad, a world absent of moral leadership, and fraught with hopelessness. Leadership for today and tomorrow will require men and women inside and outside of church buildings (as we ARE the church)...to exercise these 11 characteristics daily. I highly recommend this book.
Read this book if you're a leader and you want to be the best leader you can be. For your people, for your company, and most importantly - for the Lord. Filled with personal stories and laced with Scripture.
Began to read Learning to Lead Like Jesus on the plane to Dallas yesterday. The first chapter teaching on humility is strong. Loving it so far.
