Lead Like Jesus is the exciting by-product of bestselling co-author of The One Minute Manager, Ken Blanchard and his long-time friend and fellow leader Phil Hodges.
A leadership book like no other, 'Lead Like Jesus' is a practical and insightful guide for all leaders whether you are leading a church, family or team. Even if you aren’t in an official leadership role, there is plenty to take from this book.
At the heart of this book is the command to be a ‘Servant Leader’; a counter-cultural take on leadership centred on the example of the greatest leader, Jesus Christ. Split into seven chapters, 'Lead Like Jesus' examines four characteristics of Jesus’ leadership: Heart, Head, Hands and Habits, bookended with key chapters on who and how you will lead and why it’s essential to base your leadership style on Jesus.
Each chapter is packed full of food for thought examples of practical leadership and Biblical examples from Christ. With plenty of ‘Pause and Reflect’ moments, Blanchard and Hodges have written this book to inspire a generation of leaders wherever God has placed you.
It is designed to guide you in exploring your personal response to Jesus’ call to “Come, follow me” and to put into action the principles of servant leadership. Experience and wisdom make this a leadership book well worth a read as you re-define your leadership in line with the greatest leader of all.
