Item description for Excellence in Leadership: Reaching Goals With Prayer, Courage & Determination by John White...

Sick of secular management strategies? White offers an alternative with a look at the model Nehemiah provides for present and future leaders.

Publishers Description
Short deadlines Not enough staff Tight budgets Personal attacks External opposition Internal conflicts A huge task Every leader faces these problems. But as Christians, should we solve them by using the secular strategies of best-selling management books? Or is there another way? John White says there is. Nehemiah provides the model we need for excellence in leadership. From the way he overcame obstacles, we find practical solutions for surmounting the problems we encounter. From the way he achieved his goals, we learn how to accomplish the work God has called us to. With the wisdom and biblical insight John White is known for, he shows how to be action-oriented and prayer-oriented, a firm leader and a servant, a realist and a visionary. This book confronts the crises facing leaders today. Here White inspires and guides us in our task. A book for present and future leaders.

Reviews - What do customers think about Excellence in Leadership: Reaching Goals With Prayer, Courage & Determination?

Excellent Biblical Advice on Leadership!  Jun 24, 2004
White has written an excellent book on leadership by using the biblical example of Nehemiah, whose construction of the walls of Jerusalem are chronicled in the Book of Nehemiah.

Among the important points White covers include:

1. Prayer must never be a dialog - true prayer is initiated by God and represents our response to Him.
2. Waiting on God does not we are not to work or research the solution to a problem. Good leaders do their own research.
3. Overcoming motivational roadblocks to getting things done.
4. Leadership is not status that exempts us from performing common tasks. Spirituality is no substitute for sweat.
5. Standing up to those who oppose the work God has called you to do.
6. What marks godly leaders is the willingness to deal with mistakes openly and applying the same standards to others and themselves.
7. When God has given us work to do, fear must never paralyze us.
8. True leadership must be consistent with ongoing servanthood.

Read, enjoy, and be encouraged to be a better leader!

There are hundreds of books om leadership. This book is based on a man who overcame death threats, political intrigues, cowardly followers and yet worked as a key player in a team.

It points out what you can do, and what you should let others do. It contains wisdom. What more can you expect from a book on leadership and courage?
