A behind-the-scenes analysis of 21 essential leadership principles from the life of Billy Graham Billy Graham looms large as one of the twentieth century's most influential and innovative leaders. Most people are unaware of his remarkable effectiveness as not only preacher and pastor, but as a CEO and a global leader as well. THE LEADERSHIP SECRETS OF BILLY GRAHAM is full of transferable applications for leaders in the church, parachurch, academia, government, and business. Lively interviews with his closest associates illustrate 21 principles that have driven six decades of visionary impact. First-hand accounts reveal stories of courageous leadership and growth through painful lessons. Graham's relentless application of core beliefs and leadership principles have resulted in, among many honours, being listed in Gallup's ten "most admired men" thirty times, more than anyone else. Time magazine named him one of the top ten leaders of the twentieth century. This book asks: How did this happen? What are the essentials he embraced to achieve such extraordinary results? What can we learn from him and apply to our own leadership roles? This book is dedicated to those readers. Who sense the pressing need in today's world for inspired leadership. Who rise to leadership's high calling and are willing to carry its weight. Who are determined to deepen and expand their capacities and effectiveness.

Many people don't think of Billy Graham in connection with leadership. Yet the truth is that behind the scenes Dr. Graham has personified what Jim Collins in his bestseller Good to Great calls a Level 5 leader - a paradoxical mix of personal humility and professional will to advance the cause of Christ's kingdom. Graham's fingerprints are on many of the key Christian institutions such as his founding of the media presence of Christianity Today, the National Association of Evangelicals, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association with all of its media arms, as well as global coalitions such as the Lausanne and Amsterdam conferences.The book takes us behind the scenes singling out twenty key principles of leadership, with character traits, and illustrates them with stories and examples from the life of Billy Graham. Rather than being a chronological biography, the book is an insightful story-driven analysis of the leadership of perhaps the world's best

DCI/ 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 Coming Alive The giants all had one thing in common: neither victory nor success, but passion. PHILIP YANCEY How is it that among millions of young men of no particular distinction, one ignites and becomes a driving force? How is it that-like a rocket on a launch pad with flame barely visible-one person is slightly lifted, then slowly gains momentum, thrusts upward, engines burning steadily with increasing velocity? The phenomenon of Billy Graham's humble beginnings and the ever-increasing velocity of his executive leadership intrigued us. What combination of genes, culture, experience, religion, and internal response created the alchemy? This first section consists of just one extended chapter exploring those questions. How did his extraordinary leadership get started? How did it continue in force throughout his life? Numerous scholars and commentators have ranked Billy with the "greats." We were intrigued to find, in seeking to identify common principles, parallels with other great leaders like Teddy Roosevelt, who was "ignited" by similar forces. To put Billy in context, we include those experiences too, which may illumine some of what happens in these extraordinary lives. C H A P T E R 1 Igniting! Absolute identity with one's cause is the first and great condition of successful leadership. WOODROW WILSON Leadership is forged in the furnace. The gracious, positive spirit of a Billy Graham-or the broad smile of a Dwight Eisenhower or the exuberance of a Teddy Roosevelt- does not reveal the complex, painful stories of how they rose to great challenges or sustained their intensity. Far from being a formula to learn, leadership is a set of life experiences melded by intense heat. The heat and struggle create often unexpected results. Jim Collins, as he researched corporate leadership for his book Good to Great, was caught off-guard by his team's research findings. "The good-to-great leaders seem to have come from Mars," is how he described his reaction to what they discovered about the very best corporate leaders. "We were surprised, shocked really, to discover the type of leadership required," Collins wrote. What his team found was a paradoxical blend of humility and "ferocious resolve." Those two characteristics don't easily meld. Only the furnace can extrude such seemingly opposite characteristics. Billy Graham's lifetime of leadership has, indeed, been paradoxical in blending extraordinary humility with fierce intensity of purpose. He fits Collins's descriptions of highly effective leaders, for out of that burning, paradoxical b
