Jesus on Leadership Mar 1, 2007
This is a great book on what it takes to become a true leader. The author used personal life experiences to solidify his need for true leadership qualities.
direct and enlightening Jan 15, 2007
What a blessing this book is! I so appreciate the heart of the author, who admits, as much as he was and is gifted in leadership and had studied leadership principles thoroughly, he had stopped leading. The book is full of Biblical leadership principles to refresh and renew pastors and layity who may find they have been leading, but no one is following (in other words, they are no longer leading). Thank you, Gene Wilkes, for your obedience and your humble heart.
Jesus on Leadership Nov 2, 2006
I was given a copy as a gift. After reading it I bought copies for our church pastoral staff, the church board members and our two children.
The book provides a totally different perspective on leadership. It focuses on Jesus' style and gives a real lesson on building relationships. It discusses His public and private methods and gives examples of each. I would highly recommend it for anyone who is in a religious or secular leadership position.
Solid, Biblical Advice Jan 31, 2004
I've read several books on leadership, and this one is now near the top of my most-favored list. It is very readable, yet profound. The author condenses a wealth of timeless principles into approximately 200 pages.
Most readers nowadays are familiar with the notion of servant leadership, so Wilkes' principles are not new. What is refreshing is the fresh way he communicates those principles. My favorite aspect of this work is the servant-sayings scattered throughout the pages. For example, the author remarks, "You will never become a servant leader until you first become a servant to the Leader." Another excerpt says, "You are not the leader until the group you are leading says so." A third quote reads, "Servant leaders humble themselves and wait for God to exalt them."
This book was highly recommended to me, and I in turn recommend it to all Christian leaders.
Leadership Primer Sep 3, 2002
Much like Jesus sending the seventy out with only the essentials they would need, Gene Wilkes packs the basics you need for leadership in one volume.
He starts with the most primary issue: the heart. Leaders must first be followers of Jesus. He then deals with what seems like an oxymoron: servant leadership. How is one both a servant and a leader at the same time? His answer is that a servant leader is someone who serves the mission and leads by serving those on mission with him.
Following Jesus' lead, Wilkes then discusses how leaders form teams who together can accomplish much more than an individual can. Throughout the book are leads to other resources that can equip leaders further. Discussion questions and action steps also are helpful. Leadership insights from Jesus that can be seen in the secular world are peppered within the pages of this book.
I had the privelege of spending a day with Wilkes in which I discovered he is truly a humble servant of God who has been given a passion for developing servant leaders. This book will help you do the same.
