This is the real deal on Christian leadership. Allender describes the ugly underbelly of leadership, not just platitudes and "how-to's".
This book has given me such insight as to what a leader goes through. It is also show me what grief I've given leaders, as well as held them in a position in my mind they did not deserve.I know for sure that if the Lord wants me to lead, that he will have to make that clear. I have such a high respect for anyone who takes on leadership roles and hope that I can continue to do and remember the things in this book. Chapter 6 nailed me, I had no idea this was a fault of mine until I heard it explained. I now feel like I do understand how to consider other peoples ideas and form a group opinion. That's huge!
While trying to figure out what my path and purpose is, I was turned toward this book. Very good read, helps to start the process of de-forging the windshield pointed toward your future.
I started listening at ch7. It may be the copy of the kindle book that I have, but the audio book regularly cut out sentences and paragraphs throughout each chapter. This became very frustrating.
