Transforming Leadership

Leighton Ford

$28.99

Paperback
A book for leaders, by leaders, about the greatest leader of them all.

In our rapidly changing and ever more complex world, we suffer a crisis of leadership. Leighton Ford sees the growing dearth of bold leaders - in the marketplace, religion and public life. In this powerful book, Ford calls Christians to be transformational leaders.

Many leaders work within situations; transformational leaders change situations. Many leaders accept what can be talked about; transformational leaders change what can be talked about. Many leaders talk about payoffs; transformational leaders talk about goals. Many leaders bargain; transformational leaders appeal to a common vision.

Ford realizes that desperately needed Christian and transformational leadership will not emerge until we have a model of the transforming leader. And what more powerful example of leadership could there be than Jesus? Insightfully examining Jesus' work and the best recent books on leadership, Ford presents - the leader as strategist - the leader as seer - the leader as seeker - the leader as servant - the leader as struggler - the leader as sustainer.

Executives, pastors, managers, professionals - all will benefit from this fresh, in-depth treatment by a man who is himself one of the world's finest Christian leaders.


- Publisher Combining a fresh examination of Jesus' ministry with the insights of the best recent discussions of leadership, Leighton Ford challenges readers to become transformational leaders on the job, in the church and in the public arena. Includes a study guide.
