Product Description

Be the smartest and most competent leader in the room.

Leadership demands constant reframing and reappraisal of the situation at hand. It requires focus, objectivity, honest appraisal of self and others, and evaluation of available resources. An effective Christian church leader must also align the congregation's vision and practices with God's vision and the teachings of Christ. Perhaps most importantly, the church leader must love others.

Author Charles Stone uses recent neuroscience research to show how basic brain processes affect leadership. He writes in layperson's language, with memory-boosting illustrations and acronyms, helping readers to increase productivity, handle stress, create and sustain healthy teams, and manage change in the church. Brain science complements and reinforces Christian teaching on life and leadership; Brain-Savvy Leaders equips readers to use that science as a tool for improvement for life and for the church.

Dr. Stone has created an engaging and fun read that's also insightful, informative, and practical. It is written with a beautiful personal touch that at times made me laugh out loud and at times moved me to tears. This book is an original and thoughtful analysis of the consistencies between neuroscientific and biblical perspectives on the human mind, and it will be a valuable resource for spiritual leaders as well as for literary scholars of the Old and New Testaments.
