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!
