As leaders we all face tests, and we should welcome them. The greater our call to leadership, the greater the tests will be. Problems only provide the opportunity for us to grow and become more mature as leaders. Surviving the tests teaches us humility, because we have been tested and remained faithful. No matter if we are leaders in the workforce, in our homes, our communities, our church or in a variety of organizations, this book will help us stand when the task becomes difficult and demanding.
