Product Description

Since Jean Lipman-Blumen's The Allure of Toxic Leaders shook the corporate world in 2005, countless articles, books, and Internet blogs have appeared on the topic.

Despite such interest and response, no study of toxic leadership had appeared from a Christian point of view until this volume, Kenn Gangel's Surviving Toxic Leaders.

Gangel begins by showing that toxic leadership existed throughout biblical history. Making generous use not only of biblical materials but also of contemporary leadership literature, Gangel names the causes and cures of power abuse, cheating, bullying, laziness, and dictatorial behavior in today's leaderReaders will benefit from Gangel's leadership experience and expertise. He has been a pastor, a college dean (twice), and a college president. Gangel currently edits The Seal, a review of leadership literature.

Practical and personal, Surviving Toxic Leaders abounds with stories of real people and their situations. Everyone who has ever had "trouble at work" will benefit from Surviving Toxic Leaders.

    I bought this book hoping that it would help me know how to deal with the toxic Christian leaders with whom I'm currently involved. There were many things to agree with as far as recognizing toxic leaders, but I don't feel I learned anything that will help me deal with them. Quite a good portion of the book is quotes from other books, so it seems like more of a compendium of others' thoughts than a book of original ideas.

    What really bothered me, though, was how poorly written it was. There were punctuation errors, and a lot of the sentences were so poorly constructed that I had to re-read them just to figure out what the author was trying to say. This book REALLY needed a competent editor! The author has a PhD, but apparently it was not in any subject related to English.
