Publisher's Description

Leadership is essential. Maybe you've shied away from leadership because you don't know what it will involve, or you feel too unsure of your own abilities. But your leadership is needed! In every sector of society, from families to businesses to churches, leadership roles remain empty, waiting for people willing and able to step up and make wise decisions that bring positive change. And, in a world with priorities vastly different from Christ's, Christian leaders are especially needed to point people to him. Preparation is essential. As essential as the leadership itself is the preparation beforehand, which is why Greg Ogden, a seasoned leader himself, has created this interactive guide that will give you the tools you need to lead well, using your unique gifts and experience. Divided into four sections, this workbook will help you develop character, postures, vision and skills as you participate in the following elements in each chapter:
  • a memory verse
  • a Bible study
  • a reading
  • a leadership exercise
By working through these multiple channels of learning you'll be equipped not just with head knowledge about leadership but with true character formation and awareness of your own abilities that will prepare you for the challenges and choices of leadership. Designed to work well on your own, with a partner or with a group, Leadership Essentials by Greg Ogden and Daniel Meyer is the essential preparation tool for those who would be led and shaped by Christ to lead others with strength and wisdom.

    I did not intend to read this. I bought it on the request of a friend outside the USA to bring it to him when we traveled to his country. But on the way I started looking at it, and have now had a number of intense sessions with the Lord over issues raised for my own life and leadership within my own ministry. Each lesson is well crafted, highly inductive and thought-producing, and on target for both developing and experienced leaders. It deals more deeply and helpfully with character issues than most leadership books--but does not stop there. It is written so that it could be useful either for a small group study or for individual study--and of course, study with a mentor would be beneficial. I will make this required reading for the next time I train a new crop of leaders.
