"Whatever leadership is, it isnt easy. Business leaders face the daily challenges of ambiguity, uncertainty, risk, conflict, and much more. In Discipled Leader, Preston Poore shows how Christian values and beliefs can guide leaders to do the right things, which in secular commerce may be called governance, stewardship, equality, engagement, and empowerment. In truth, these are all entirely congruent with the Christian faith, and being a discipled leader ensures unparalleled and infectious strength, faith, and courage. The undeniable connection between discipleship and effective leadership in modern-day business is beautifully highlighted in this mustread book." -- Stephen Gibson, managing director and chartered business psychologist at Gibson Hallmark Ltd.
"There is no command to make converts in Scripture! There is a command to make disciples. However, that command is ignored, watered down, redefined, and disobeyed. Preston Poore not only lays out the biblical mandate in a very real manner but also makes it practical. I especially like that Discipled Leader is geared for small groups where encouragement and accountability can and should exist. Read this book and join in the excitement of becoming like Jesus. Pass it forward." -- Dr Hal Hadden, founder of Christian Leadership Concepts
