Have you ever felt inadequate for the task of
leadership? Great leaders know that leadership is not about power and authority
but about influence—leading others with moral authority. But as failed, sinful
people, we often fall short. We fail those who look to us for guidance and
direction. We feel inadequate to the task, knowing that our decisions and our
actions are often flawed by selfish ambition and pride.
In Redefining Leadership, author, pastor, and
college president Joe Stowell explores the unique way in which Jesus Christ
transforms our understanding of leadership. He shows us how our awareness of
our weaknesses should lead us to greater dependence on God. Stowell explains
why an emphasis on process trumps our short-term goal of producing, actually
leading to greater long-term fruitfulness in ministry and life. He reminds us
that while people matter more than our tasks, wise leaders will balance the
needs of people with the vision that God has given to them. How we lead is
never as important as who we follow. The best leaders don’t rely on their own
strength—they follow Jesus. Download and start listening now!
