Publisher's Summary

Leadership plays a critical role in every human being's life whether it's by someone else or through the self. An effective leader is someone with a desire to begin a mission that is greater than what can be seen on the surface, and who can visualize images, thoughts, and ideas to bring forth a vision that will improve humanity.

Leaders are born every day, but effective leaders are developed; shaped and molded over time. Each person is born with basic leadership skills but may not have a specific skill that's needed to lead a specific assembly, association, body, business, crowd, division, or industry.

Leadership skills can be acquired through study and learning. People who are willing to achieve these skills can become better prepared by identifying and engaging in leadership roles that will allow them to gain knowledge and skills to take on different positions as a leader.

Good lessons for a successful life

As someone who has lived most of my life in big Cities with diverse populations I am uncomfortable with the Christian
aspects of this Book.

However, it is a worthy effort in outlining the various components of a good leader.

Perhaps this book should be in the Religion section rather then being considered a work suitable for Business.

Regardless, The Narrator does a good job with the material and will satisfy most listeners who are Christian or are not bothered by the Christian references.



This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Christian Leadership book in the Business Section

This book is effectively two books.

The first 2/3 is looking at what leadership is and how to do it effectively. The last 1/3 is a very Christian, very Bible quoting 'how to be a good spiritual leader' type teaching. I am a Christian, and I have no issue with the actual content of the teaching BUT I feel like I was ambushed with it. The book is in the business section. It has a very business looking cover. And nowhere in the description and blurb does it mention spiritual leadership or Biblical teaching. This section comes from nowhere, out of the blue, and I think it will put people off.

If they wanted to write a spiritual leadership book, then great. Do that. But don't try hide it as a business book. Because people looking for it will miss it. And people not wanting it will be put off. Ambush tactics of getting someone to listen to the Christianese stuff isn't going to suddenly convert people.

There are other non-business sections, talking about parents leading their children by example, and teachers with students, but these are shorter and don't stand out

As for the first 2/3 of the book - it is good. It uses a lot of quotes and examples to show that leadership isn't about your role and position - it's not about management - but about how you use the role and position you have to influence and guide. For an introduction to leadership and how to do it, it is a good resource.

Narration by Evie Irwin is good. Well paced, easy to follow and engaging. She separates the quotes and the rest of the book slightly in her narration, so you can tell them apart.

An excellent choice.

An excellent choice as a present anytime since the appeal is very broad. I have made it assigned reading for my management teams and I endeavor to live these teachings on a daily basis- but no, it's not a cult. Just exceptionally sound advice.

I really enjoyed it!

I really enjoyed this timeless book and what it teaches. I had not considered this book until recently after reading many other books that had similiar concepts. I struggled with myself and therefore in all areas of my life. But after a single reading of this book I already found that I am able to make significant changes in my life both personal and professional. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
