Publisher's Description

A heartwarming, contemporary parable, The Way of the Shepherd offers a fresh perspective on the art of leadership in this account of a cub reporter who lands the interview of a lifetime with the most respected CEO in America. Through the interview, the businessman shares seven proven management principles that, while ancient in origin, are readily applicable in today’s fast-paced, high-tech world. Compelling and challenging, these uncommon, age-old principles require leaders to focus on their own hearts, character, and priorities, and to give their best in order to receive the best from others. Readers also discover insights and techniques for engaging and energizing their workforce, and for leading people in a way that helps them see their work as a calling rather than merely a job, as a place to belong rather than just a place to work. A concise story that’s full to the brim, The Way of the Shepherd is a must-read for busy leaders at all levels who want to call forth greatness from the people around them by cultivating it in themselves.

“To be a successful leader, you’re going to have to interact with people in much the same way that a shepherd interacts with his sheep.” That is the concept set forth in William Pentak and Dr. Kevin Leman’s book, The Way of the Shepherd. Proposing a philosophy that is quite different from most in modern management, the book contends that if bosses want workers to give their best, then bosses must first give theirs.
Pentak tells of his days as a young reporter, when he was granted an exclusive interview with Theodore McBride, one of the most respected CEO’s in America. He immediately discerned that McBride was different from most top executives. Accompanying him to an open range where sheep are grazing, Pentak impatiently waited as McBride inspected and cared for each member of his bleating flock. Thinking that he is wasting his time, the reporter failed to grasp the visual illustration being played out right before his eyes.
The ideas in this book are refreshing, though they are not really new; they were passed down to McBride by a former professor, Dr. Jack Neumann, as a means of equipping him for his first position in leadership.
McBride relayed seven basic leadership principles: (1) know the condition of your flock; (2) discover the shape of your sheep; (3) help your sheep identify with you; (4) make your pasture a safe place; (5) use the staff of direction; (6) the rod of correction; and, (7) the heart of the shepherd.
Leman and Pentak team-up to bring these very down-to-earth leadership concepts to those in management who are eager to cultivate a healthy workplace and a productive workforce. Dr. Leman is an internationally known psychologist, business consultant, award-winning author and speaker. Pentak has twenty-two years of experience in assisting struggling organizations, and is a writer, pastor, consultant, and speaker.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, and recommend it to anyone serving in leadership, whether private or public. The Way of the Shepherd would make a great teaching tool. – Nancy Brown, Christian Book Previews.com

    The book was an easy read. I read about four chapters at B&N then bought the book from Christianbook and finished it rather quickly. It reads as if you're a fly on the wall during some very personal teaching, mentoring, friendship building discussions. I plan to have my boys read it and buy more copies as gifts.
