Jesus on Leadership

In stock
Discover the essence of transformative leadership by studying how Jesus led. Gene Wilkes, a popular conference speaker, describes how Jesus led. He identifies seven practical principles for today’s leaders, to assist them with everything from humbling their hearts to building a team for Christ. A series of questions appears at the end of each chapter. This is a good integration of actual leadership experience, biblical scholarship, and leadership theory. 293 pages.
The real value of Wilkes’ work arises out of his own experience of being humbled into leading like Jesus. He combines this experience with learnings from scripture and leadership theory to derive seven principles of servant leadership: 1. Humble your heart – servant leaders humble their heart and wait for God to exalt them. 2. First be a follower – servant leaders follow Jesus instead of seek a position. 3. Find greatness in service – servant leaders give up personal rights to find greatness in service to others. 4. Take risks – servant leaders can risk serving others because they trust that God is in control of their lives. 5. Take up the towel – servant leaders take up the towel of servanthood to meet the needs of others. 6. Share responsibility and authority – servant leaders share their responsibility and authority with others to meet a great need. 7. Build a team – servant leaders create a sense of togetherness, empower with authority and presence, account for the mission and the team’s actions, and mentor.
