Story Behind the Book
Andy Stanley, the senior pastor of the North Point Ministries campuses with a cumulative congregation of more than twenty thousand, admits he has one single, core passion. He lives to train and mentor young leaders to be the best they can be! He sees the "next gen" need for quality Christian resources on leadership and wrote this book entrenched in leadership himself, desiring to guide the up-and-coming young men and women who will shape our future.
A lot of what Stanley shares is comparable to more famous writers. For example, section four on listening, learning, and being and finding a coach is similar to the "sharpen your saw" lesson from Stephen R. Covey. Nevertheless, because Stanley purposefully gives his message a strong Christian bent toward stewardship of time, righteous personal development, and service to Christ in all we do, it becomes unique to his book and message. For a fact, Stanley gives credit to Covey, John Maxwell, Warren Bennis, Max DePree, and Jim Collins for how their pioneering works influenced his thinking and leadership development. However, Stanley provides something these trainers do not. Stanley presents biblical role models to exemplify the fact that great leaders exhibit similar traits despite the era in which they live or the challenge presented to them. He cites Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego as examples of men with courage, to stand against mob mentality, even to the point of forfeiting their lives if necessary. He draws lessons from David in regard to courage after proper preparation.
Stanley is the senior pastor of North Point Community Church and four satellite congregations in Georgia. His first rule in undertaking a leadership job is to focus on only those matters you can do and to delegate the rest. (He laughs and says the leader gets the credit anyway, when things go right.) Eliminating tasks that are not the leader's primary objectives is a great lesson in success. His other points focus on: courage in times of uncertainty, since no one can predict the future with exactness; clarity of mission, since people will follow even a flawed leader if they are convinced he knows where he's going; and honesty and good character, since the leader is never off-stage but is always being examined to see if he walks his talk.
This is not difficult reading, but you will find yourself pausing to think through specific lines, lessons, and anecdotes. There is meat here. I'm going to wait a month and then read this book a second time. Dr. Dennis E. Hensley, Christian Book Previews.com

I signed up to read and review this book before I knew what else I was signing up for this year. God knew I needed this book! Since signing up and beginning this book, I have been promoted to PTO President, volunteered for the position of VBS Director, on top of continuing to be a wife, stay at home mom of six, church nursery director.... Andy Stanley's Next Generation Leader: Five Essentials For Those Who Will Shape the Future has helped me to work on my leadership skills, to fine tune the way I lead, and to delegate the tasks that are not essential to each leadership role. It has helped me to also fine tune my parenting skills as I raise up potential Next Gen leaders in my home. Next Generation Leader has also helped me understand more the roles of each member of the Church.

The Next Generation Leader is a must read book for anyone in a leadership position. Andy Stanley does an amazing job of outlining the necessary skills and qualities of a leader worth following. His use of Biblical references made the book relevant and helped me see things in a Biblical context. I will be honest and say that their were some points that made me feel uncomfortable but upon examination it was because they were areas of weakness in my ministry. This book was insightful and challenging. I think this book would make a great addition to new and veteran leaders alike. This book will be on my annual list of books to read for a refresher.
This book focuses on 5 concepts which Andy identifies are essential for any leader worth following: competence, courage, clarity, coaching, and character.

Andy Stanley provides a must-read for all aspiring leaders. Taking five characteristicsâ€”courage, competence, character, clarity, and coachabilityâ€”Stanley shows how these all are necessary to be an influential leader. His style is not only easy-to-understand, but his concepts are enhanced through personal testimony and real-life illustrations. This book is short, 165 pages, but it is one of the best books on leadership I have read.
After reading the section on competence, I was immediately convicted about how I spend my time. I am guilty of wanting to take on many tasks by myself, not trusting anyone else to get the job finished. Stanley writes on page 33, â€œUpgrade your performance by playing to your strengths and delegating your weaknesses.â€ As soon as I finished this chapter, I made a much needed call to delegate a responsibility that I had no business pursuing. After involving other people to take over something in which I am not as skilled, the burden was not only lifted off of me, but it also was placed on someone else who was better suited for the job. These concepts are not just good advice to be stored in your head, they are to be practiced.
I received a free copy of this book as part of a blogging program. I was not obligated to write a positive review.

Next Generation Leader: Five Essentials For Those Who Will Shape The Future, written by Andy Stanley, is a book that is designed to clarify the five characteristics that will define tomorrow's great leaders.
Andy begins this publication trying to bring proper understanding to an issue that affects many people within the church and society in general. In his own words, found in chapter one page eighteen, "The problem was that somewhere along the way I had bought into the myth that a good leader has to be good at everything."
Andy wants his readers to understand that everyone has a purpose, everyone has a place, everyone has the ability to do exactly what they need to be doing. Thus they do not need to fill their time or utilize their efforts on those things that others are better suited to see to fruition.
Andy also shares what he determines to be the five appropriate characteristics of a leader. Competence: leaders who understand their skills set. Courage: leaders who initiate forward progress. Clarity: leaders who have clarity in vision, even in the face of uncertainty. Coaching: leaders who seek the advice of others. Character: leaders who believe that character and morality are important.
This book is packed with information that is sure to transform the leadership position of anyone who turns its pages, thus it is a recommended read.

GregAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Andy Stanley's Best BookFebruary 24, 2011GregAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5
Several years ago, I purchased a copy of The Next Generation Leader by Andy Stanley as my wife and I were just beginning a ministry to young married and engaged couples. The 5 Essentials this book covers (Competence; Courage; Clarity; Coaching; and Character) were helpful to us as we began our process.
As a result, over the last several years, I've given away several copies to younger adults as they were beginning their leadership journey, some in the area of ministry while others were new leaders in the business world....sound, Biblical principles always apply.
This book is a short, easy read that I highly recommend.
