Publisher's summary

You can learn to handle the onslaught of internal and external pressures

Does anxiety get in the way of your ability to be an effective leader? Is your inability to notice when you and those around you are anxious keeping you "stuck" in chronic unhealthy patterns? In Managing Leadership Anxiety, pastor and spiritual growth expert Steve Cuss offers powerful tools to help you move from being managed by anxiety to managing anxiety. 

You'll develop the capacity to notice your anxiety and your group's anxiety. You will increase your sensitivity to the way groups develop systemic anxiety that keeps them trapped. Your personal self-awareness will increase as you learn how self gets in the way of identifying and addressing issues. 

Managing Leadership Anxiety offers valuable principles to those who are hungry to understand the source of the anxiety in themselves and in the people with whom they relate. Listeners will be empowered to take back control of their lives and lead in mature and vibrant ways. 

Discussion questions and exercises available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

Bowen Theory Meets Christian Theology

As a devotee of Family and Systems therapy (Bowen Theory "BT" ) for almost 30 years, I stumbled onto this by way of my daughter and son in law attending church where the author is lead pastor. As an occasional visitor to their assemblies, I certainly connected with his preaching so I wasn't "shocked" when I discovered that he too, cut his professional teeth while training under a 1st generation Bowen protege. I have read all of Bowen's writings and Ed Friedman's books, participated in many therapy groups applying their principles and methods, and have been delivered from numerous fatal mistakes in decisions and relationships at home, professional life, and as a church leader through the years from that training. Over the past twenty years many BT disciples have written and published books reviewing and restating BT through their own language and experience. This book is better than most I have read (IMO). It is more systematic and uses good examples of the approach applied in real life situations. Plus the author is transparent with his own successes and mistakes and shares his own personal growth honestly and humbly. Anyone can pick up this book and benefit from it personally or as a leader (parent/executive/church leader) without having to learn the esoteric vocabulary of Bowen/Friedman which is not the case for many other BT books out there.

Interesting Approach

I learned of this book through Newsworthy by Norsworthy podcast and was intrigued by the application of this approach to Management. I am not disappointed and will be providing copies of the book to key members of my management team.

Essential skills for life, healing & growth

I was familiar with these concepts but listening to this book was like hearing them in another language which allowed me to absorb them from a different angle.

Calm, yet engaging narration. Author uses personal stories, along with other's situations to make the material, not only understandable, but relatable. It's refreshing to hear a teacher model humility well.

And this book isn't just information. It has very practical suggestions that anyone could implement. Simple, yet challenging.

I'm buying two physical books after this great listen. One for me & another for our church leadership. Worth every penny.

I needed this book a long time ago.

Excellent insight and advice especially from a Christian perspective. I wish I had this book in my early teens. It’s going to take some work but on the road to healing

Fanatic look at anxiety and leadership

As someone who wouldn’t describe myself as anxious, I now know I have some leadership anxiety to work on. Luckily this book also provides tools. I would highly recommend this for anyone who works or serves in a leadership capacity.
