Author/Artist Review

Author: Jim Lange
Located in: Lambertville, MI
Submitted: September 28, 2005

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I attended the University of Toledo in Toledo, OH where I played on the basketball team for 4 years. I have worked in business for over 20 years in the Toledo area. I have been married for over 20 years and have 3 children who range in age from 9-17.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  As I was sitting in church one Sunday in December of 2003, our pastor was speaking about the birth of Jesus. He mentioned that God could have chosen any place for Jesus to have been born. He could have been born in a huge palace in a gold bassinette with lots of wealth. However, we all know he was born in a manger, next to farm animals. Our pastor went on to say, "Imagine that. The greatest leader that ever walked this earth came from the humblest of beginnings."

At the time of this sermon, I was vice president of sales for a small division ($160 million in sales) of a $1 billion publicly traded company. I reported to the President of our division who was extremely difficult to work with. He was a very proud, arrogant, demeaning and demanding person.

As I digested my pastor’s sermon, I was struck with the dichotomy of his message and the leadership style of my boss! I immediately began writing notes on the back of the church program and soon over the next days, weeks, and months, the text of Bleedership began to take shape.

Bleedership contrasts the leadership style of my former boss (and many other leaders) with the great leaders of the Bible in 8 key areas.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  Bleedership is a book that tells real stories of leadership from a business perspective (although it is not just for business-people). It focuses on what I feel are the eight most common leadership pitfalls that we all make at times (my boss just happened to make them most of the time) and I contrast how my boss and leaders in the Bible handled similar circumstances.

Because this book uses real-world examples, it is very easy for the reader to look at their own leadership style and apply Biblical principles so they can grow.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  John Ortberg, Andy Stanley, Max Lucado and John Maxwell.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  So many of us do not consider ourselves as leaders. I would like to challenge you that all of us are leaders. There is at least one person who is looking up to you and whom you are influencing. Jesus Christ called us all to be the best leaders we can be. This book will help you to become a better leader whether you are a stay at home mom or whether you work in a white collar or blue collar environment. It will even help you if you coach little league! It is a very easy read as I am not smart enough to do anything but that.
