LEAD...for God's Sake

If you consider yourself a leader, you need to read this book. 
In LEAD…for God’s Sake!, Todd G. Gongwer weaves a parable for finding the heart of leadership.  Utilizing the setting of a high school basketball coach who is struggling in the midst of his own personal struggles, life lessons are presented that will motivate you like few other leadership books have ever done.

The principles outlined within this book are the keys to being a spiritual leader that honors the Lord and is focused on blessing and serving others – all wrapped up within a sports setting.

While this book delivers universal truth with respect to leadership principles that could be applied to every manager, this book is a MUST READ for anyone invlolved in any level of church leadership.  Here’s just one example of why:

"Leadership always involves influence which in one way or another flows from the character of an individual, we would be much better served were we to begin our own journey of leadership by defining just what leadership should mean, based on the character we believe is best to display. Live an aligned life! We should not expect to ever lead others to a level of true excellence in leadership without being willing to model that same level of excellence in our own lives. Character influences character!"
