Item description for The Leadership Jump: Building Partnerships Between Existing and Emerging Christian Leaders by Jimmy Long...

Overview
Not only are established leaders passing the baton to up-and-coming leaders, the very nature of leadership is being transformed. Veteran leader and cultural observer Jimmy Long has discerned how leadership positions and roles have changed in light of societal shifts. Authority is no longer derived from positional status but is earned from relational credibility. Leaders focus not only on tasks but on community. And leadership is less about directing followers to a particular destination, and more about empowering others on a shared journey.

Existing leaders cannot write off emerging leaders because they work differently. Nor can younger leaders dismiss the contributions of those who have gone before. Here is a book that offers a positive vision for intergenerational partnership and leadership transference rather than competition. The practical tools outlined here will help existing and emerging leaders understand each others' leadership styles and collaborate fruitfully for the sake of the kingdom.

Reviews - What do customers think about Leadership Jump?

Terrific Perspective  Sep 2, 2009
Sobering, informative, introspective, comprehensive, visionary and real -- all words that describe the leadership clash and crash and what can emerge because of it. Exciting to look ahead, informative to take a realistic look backward and recognize how and why things have changed. In many places it is a "light bulb" coming on experience. We see, feel and worry about the culture and change going on around us. It is refreshing and energizing to think in terms of how the energy of what was, what is, and what might be could and should come together. Energy, hope and vision -- all a part of the reality encompassed and embraced by the author. Easy to read and relate to -- both past and future. Made me choose a spot on the horizon to which I want to move towards, knowing that the journey will be an adventure with unknowns, some failures, and lots of possibilities.
