All Leadership Devolves Into Hard Work! Feb 4, 2006
I wrote this book for two reasons.
First, many books about leadership in recent years, especially those about Christian leadership, have focused on leadership character. While character is essential, it must be linked to solid skills. In this short book, I hoped to provide a leadership skills primer, something that would help a new or developing leader know what to do first or next. Leadership is challenging but it is not rocket science. The parts of a leader's work can be understood, learned, and, yes, even mastered. This is not the last book someone will want to read on leadership; I hope it may be helpful as the first book for many new leaders. I know I would have done better in my early years of ministry and corporate leadership if I had focused clearly on the essential leadership skills I describe in OnTrack Leadership.
The second reason I wrote this book was to raise money for the building campaign for my church, Grace Community Church in Brentwood, TN. My wife and I attend a fairly new, young church. As a couple in our 50s, we are the "senior adults" of this wonderful church. Our pastor challenged the congregation to fast and pray and ask God to show us how we could give more to the building campaign than would otherwise be possible. For my wife and I, OnTrack Leadership was the answer to that prayer. Without going into the details, I was able to complete the book and assign the contract for the book to my church. My wife and I gave it as part of our gift to the building campaign. So if you buy the book, check out the front matter and you'll see that the copyright is held by Grace Community Church. I have no financial stake in the book and all royalties, past, present and future, go to our church. So if you buy the book, I hope you'll enjoy knowing that you are helping a young church pay for a new building.
I appreciate you taking a look at OnTrack Leadership. I hope you will find it helpful as you continue as a leader in business, in ministry, or in whatever arena you are privileged to lead.
