Product Description

Learning, leading, and leaving a legacy are the seasons of a leader's life. The beginning phase involves the passion of youth and excitement for the future and is a time of earning degrees, finding mentors, and more. And while leaders are always learners, soon enough the true season of leadership arrives where the leader leads, employing key practices to advance the mission of their work. Finally, a leader must consider her legacy -- the wisdom gained, the people influenced, and the model of leadership that's left behind to inspire a subsequent generation ahead.

In Seasons of a Leader's Life, seminary president Jeff Iorg identifies Peter from The Bible as someone who lives through all three phases in the New Testament. In the Gospels he was a learner. In Acts he was a leader. In 1 and 2 Peter he wrote his legacy. Looking through that lens, Iorg blends scripture with leadership principles while prompting readers to see a bigger picture:

  • Which season are you in right now?
  • What should you be learning?
  • How can you improve what you are doing?
  • What will you leave for future generations?
These questions surely lead to better leadership.
