Faith in Leadership What are the challenges of expressing faith in the workplace? What does faith add to a leader2s ability to model and inspire? How does faith translate into specific leadership practices? This extraordinary anthology thoughtfully addresses these and other questions, affirming for Christians of all denominations that bringing one2s faith to work can be highly imaginative and constructive-even profitable. The writers of this essential guide show how we can nurture the fundamental components of faithful leadership-integrity in all things, a servant attitude, a concern for justice and equity, and a willingness to be vulnerable. Drawing from their diverse experience in industry and nonprofit organizations, they examine faith-based virtues such as humility and vision, which give us the confidence to take risks that move us out of the expected and into the exceptional. This lively collection explores personal practices in faithful leadership such as prayer and study and meditation on God2s word, accepting the clarity found in chaos as essential to renewal, and sharing power and faith without violating one2s basic principles. The editors address vital issues, including how we can balance the expression of our truest selves as people of faith with the need to be sensitive to those who are not so oriented. The book culminates with two powerful examples, one a poignant personal account of the importance of faith in the workplace and the other an in-depth case study of an organization that measures itself against its highest ideals. Faith in Leadership offers clear advice on how we can more fully integrate our principles and convictions into the duties of career. It dynamically illustrates the rich possibilities of working faithfully, presents hands-on practices for operational virtues, and delineates proven practices of leadership. With wisdom, inspiration, and practical guidance, it shows how each of us can develop a style of leadership that is authentically faithful. Vital Wisdom for Leaders on How to Successfully Integrate Work and Faith Leadership based on faith in God makes for good works, fulfilled workers, and healthy organizations. In this important guide, respected leaders from diverse organizations show how faithfulness and leadership can not only comfortably coincide but successfully combine. They offer real-world examples of how authentic faithfulness supports an organization2s mission, informs core leadership values, provides wisdom for thriving in a chaotic environment, teaches us to share power, and moves us to mentor the next generation of faithful leaders. Sponsored by the De Pree Leadership Center at Fuller Theological Seminary, Faith in Leadership skillfully merges the hands-on experiences of leaders from broadly varied fields with current research on workplace dynamics. Leaders looking for wisdom on how to live out their faith at work will find Faith in Leadership a pragmatic and inspiring guide. "For those in leadership who want to explore the issue of faith and its impact on the way people operate in the workplace, Faith In Leadership is a must-read."-Millard Fuller, founder and president, Habitat for Humanity International "This book contains many interesting and practical insights that will be of great value to anyone in a position of business leadership struggling with the relevance of strong Christian convictions in a pluralistic society."-Lord Griffiths of Fforestfach, international adviser, Goldman Sachs International "One reason I am grateful for this book is that I learned as much from it about the power of faith as I did about the challenge of leadership. But the most important reason is that it gave me a new vision of how each needs and enriches the other."-Lewis B. Smedes, professor of Christian ethics, emeritus, Fuller Theological Seminary, and author of Th
