Publisher's Summary

Do you want to be a better leader? Raise the threshold of your pain. Do you want your church to grow or your business to reach higher goals? Reluctance to face pain is your greatest limitation. There is no growth without change, no change without loss, and no loss without pain. Bottom line: if you're not hurting, you're not leading.

But this book is not a theological treatise on pain. Rather in Leadership Pain, Samuel Chand - best-selling author recognized as "the leader's leader" - provides a concrete, practical understanding of the pain we experience to help us interpret pain more accurately and learn the lessons God has in it for us.

Chand is ruthlessly honest and highly practical as he examines the principles and practices that make our pain a means of fulfilling God's divine purposes for our churches, communities, and us. These features are included in this leadership treasure trove:

  • Powerful, personal stories from some of the finest leaders in the world, such as Craig Groeschel, Benny Perez, Mike Kai, Lisa Bevere, Mark Chironna, Dale Bronner, Philip Wagner, Michael Pitts, and numerous others
  • Revealing insights into the growth that occurs through pain in leadership roles
  • Practical exercises to help you apply the valuable principles you are learning

Thinking of Being a Pastor?

I have a new found respect for the position, problems, pursuits and passions of being a pastor after listening to Leadership Pain.
A must read those called or think they’re called to be a pastor. You will either forge forward or retreat and run the other way. Either way may God be with you!

Great listen, helped me tons!

Someone recommended this book to me and to be honest I didn't know what expect. No one really likes pain, so the title had me some what apprehensive. But as a young leader, this book was a tremendous blessing. I really think this book is a game changer for leaders at every stage of the game. I love the testimonies at the beginning of each chapter from a lot of recognizable leaders. They are transparent with the reader about some of the hardest and most difficult seasons of their lives. You won't be disappointed.

Great stuff for any leader!

This was not my first experience with Dr. Sam Chand, I've been part of some of his online training, which is why I was excited about this book. While I believe this resource is great for any leader, it's especially good for newer leaders.

At just the right moment

After 27 years of ministry this book came at just the right time. it reminded me that I am not alone in my experiences, that God wastes nothing in the development of His men and women, and that His grace is sufficient for this moment and the next.
