Publisher's Summary

Read by the author.

You may not hold a position of leadership or think of yourself as a leader. But if you want to create, change, or impact the world around you - even in a modest way - then you're guided by a leader's impulse and shaped by a leader's principles.

You are an aspiring leader.

But the fact is that you've come to this role at a time when leadership - like everything else - is rapidly changing...and too many leaders are addressing the problems of today and tomorrow with the style and substance of yesterday's leadership. We need an update.

In The Aspiring Leader's Guide to the Future, Clay Scroggins (author of How to Lead When You're Not in Charge) explores nine new principles of leadership that will help leaders adapt to a changing world and work culture, such as:

  • Today's leaders lean into vulnerability.
  • Today's leaders develop relationships primarily around trust.
  • Today's leaders celebrate the successes of others.

These may seem like counter-intuitive principles, but they provide a new way forward for leaders and teams and will prove versatile in the event of change and durable in the face of conflict. With humor and a pastor's candor, Clay will show you why the old ways need updating and what developing new leadership skills could look like for your future.

To be clear, the author does not know the future. If he did, he would have used his talents on sports betting or stock trading. What he does know is that yesterday's leadership axioms are today's myths and what that means. The way forward requires an understanding of the past, a conviction of what's at stake today, and a vision for how different tomorrow will be.

You don't have to be a young entrepreneur with big dreams or someone looking to land a leadership role just to be considered an aspiring leader. You are one now. And by developing your skills for the future, you can become today's version of a leader worth following.

Do not read or listen to this book.

This book should be used in Church and only in Church. This is a bad book.

Reality Check

This book really gave me a reality check on what being a leader of the future will look like. These are who will not be perfect, but transparent. Not always in the know, but humble. Not threatened by others success, but embraces them. And, as I continue striving to be this leader of the future, this book has reminded me that as a leader, if I want change, I have to start with me and let circumstances be an excuse for why I'm not doing what I'm supposed to be doing. I just have to take the first step and go from there.

Clay is the truth!

I loved everything about this book to be honest as Clay is one of my favorite authors on leadership. It’s a balance funny and hard truths that can be applied in all areas of life.
