The Power of Belonging

Full Product Description

  • For leaders struggling with feeling unqualified
  • Will van der Hart helps you find confidence in true belonging
  • A deep and emotional journey, this book helps you grow in vulnerability
Do you struggle with feeling like an impostor in your own leadership? Do you carry a secret anxiety about being revealed as a fraud?

We all long to belong, especially those in positions of leadership. But deeply rooted shame can keep leaders from connecting authentically and vulnerably. Reverend Will van der Hart and Dr. Rob Waller—an experienced church leader and respected psychiatrist—integrate the story of Scripture with the science behind mental health, offering real steps for transformation. When leaders know that they belong to God—when they develop a deep sense of security in Him—they can overcome constricting shame and lead with confidence.

Offering a psychological and biblical response to one of the most persistent problems in leadership, The Power of Belonging is a unique resource to help you build success from your sense of security, allowing your unique leadership gifts to flourish and grow.

The Power of Belonging by Will van der Hart; Rob Waller was published by David C Cook in February 2019 and is our 532nd best seller. The ISBN for The Power of Belonging is 9780830775934.
