Item description for The Collaborative Leader by Loughlan Sofield, Donald H. Kuhn & Dolores Leckey...
Overview Building on the insights of the "wisdom people"--Christians who are outstanding leaders in diverse fields like medicine, politics, business, and education, who truly live their Christian values in the marketplace--the authors offer recommendations on how those in formal ministry might examine their own approach to leadership and how they meet the needs, expectations, and challenges of their people.
Publishers Description Loughlan Sofield and Donald Kuhn offer recommendations on how those in formal ministry might examine their own approach to leadership and how they meet the needs, expectations, and challenges of their people. Highlighting the comments of those who say that what they do in the workplace is not recognized or supported as ministry, the authors argue persuasively that the church is overlooking a powerful resource. Sofield and Kuhn urge church leaders to listen to the different voices in their own parishes and institutions, contending that they will find in these people dynamic, if sometimes unheralded, witnesses of the Christian message who daily carry the good news to the marketplace.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Collaborative Leader?
Not as advertised Apr 4, 2010
This book would have made two good journal articles, but the authors chose to pad and repeat, pad and repeat. The subtitle refers to those the authors selected as "wisdom people," but the criteria for choosing them is not honestly presented. Virtually all of these are people with axes to grind against the Church, usually with vitriol and demands for changes in unchangeable doctrine, and sometimes with downright dishonest claims. Some of the "wisdom people" even claim the Church doesn't help the poor--an area where the Catholic Church has done more than any other organization. The concept of collaborative leadership, here a re-working of other Sofield books, is valid, but following the dictates of often anti-Catholic "wisdom people" is a farce.
