My New #1 Best Book on Spiritual Leadership Jan 30, 2010
Rarely do I read a book cover to cover. This one I read twice, highlighter in hand, enthusiastically marking quotes and making notes in the margin. Besides being well-written and easy-to-read, I was encouraged and inspired by story after story of Billy Graham's passion for God, his obedience in the face of adversity, and his personal accomplishments for which he continues to be amazed. I love how Myra and Shelley then took each chapter topic and suggested ways for the rest of us to apply the principles to our own roles as leaders. This book has now moved into the position of my #1 spiritual leadership book. I will refer to over and over again and highly recommend it to others.
Integrity is everything Jan 21, 2010
In reading this book I have been reminded that the key ingredient to leadership is INTEGRITY. Dr. Graham has proven in his personal life as well as his ministry that uprightness speaks louder than agenda.
Good Insights Into Billy Graham's Leadership Style and Methods Dec 11, 2008
"The Leadership Secrets of Billy Grahams" contains information on the various styles of leadership by Billy Graham and specific ways he has implemented his leadership. The information is obtained mainly from people who have worked with, have been ministered by, or otherwise somehow positively affected by Billy Graham.
Granted, when I first saw the title I was expecting many quotes from Billy Graham himself. Still, the book is an enjoyable read and contains good information on topics such as:
1. The most effective leader is the one who is most focused and has a clear sense of purpose. 2. Do not let criticism divert you from your purpose. 3. Instead of dominating others, Billy Graham would inspire his team by focusing on the goal of reaching as many people as possible with the gospel of Jesus Christ. 4. Various ways Billy Graham and Martin Luther King displayed courage in spite of fears and opposition. 5. Learn from failure and let it prepare you for future success. 6. Keeping the ego in check. 7. Lead by loving others - even when love must be tough. 8. Various ways Billy Graham has been innovative in communicating the gospel. 9. To make up for his weaknesses, Billy Graham has been willing to learn from others. 10. The best leaders manage themselves best.
Read and enjoy. Recommended.
Excellent Information Oct 30, 2008
This is an amazing book. I had read the autobiography of Billy Graham before I read this one and I think that made a great difference. I had the background to relate to when reading it. The book gave great examples of leadership and how to implement them. Using, of course, Billy Graham as an example. Very, very good! I would highly recommend it!
