How do you respond to authority? How do you use your authority as a leader? How do you build a great leadership team? What can we learn from God regarding the use of authority?
Authority: The Leader’s Call to Serve answers these questions and many more. Whether you’re the boss or you have a boss, Authority will help you grow to become an effective leader.
This book will benefit you and your leadership team in a few key ways:
- It is practical. The book is full of real-life applications for a right understanding of authority, including a section on the various types of authority (which are in some ways similar to management styles and leadership styles), and how to maneuver the complex interactions between those types.
- It is Jesus-centered. He is our example for how we interact with authority, and he inspires us to be humble, both when we have authority and when we don’t.
- It is based on real life. Many of us have authority in one arena, and not in others. It can be difficult to know when to exercise authority and when to submit, and what characteristics of a leader are expressed in different settings.
- It gets to the point. You won’t find a lot of fluff, so it should serve as a good leadership manual you can read with your team.
We all have some level of authority, responsibility, and leadership at some point in our lives. This is an honest, applicable tool for those in authority, as well as those under authority. How you handle this issue will set the tone for your life and leadership.
Authority is a subject of great importance for everyone, and this book handles it from a clear and Biblical point of view.
From the Author:
Authority: The Leader’s Call to Serve is the product of my own experience with leadership and responsibility. Much like Money: God or Gift, this book strives to be a concise and practical look at the subject of authority in leadership. I’m really excited about this book because I believe it deals with some leadership subjects I haven’t seen many other places, and also challenges leaders to think deeply about their leadership and those they serve.
Every one of us can benefit from a better understanding of servant leadership.
