"This was a worthwhile introspective tome, which was truly on the level of John Maxwells extensive collection of exemplary lessons in leadership. As a leader within my organization, the information within the pages of this book was absolutely priceless. This book goes a step beyond ordinary books on leadership, by helping to understand the importance of finding connection, fulfillment, and joy with not only the people that they serve, but also within themselves as well."

"A rare focus in the leadership genre. This 240 page book goes well beyond the typical vision and strategy focus on many books. With a deeper look at what really matters and a compelling writing style, leaders at all levels will benefit from this book. Filled with insightful illustrations, I was both convicted and convinced that too often I neglect these essentials of leadership. Going forward, with the helps in this book, my leadership will be better because I am better."

" 'Rare Leadership: 4 Uncommon Habits For Increasing Trust, Joy, and Engagement in the People You Lead' by Marcus Warner and Jim Wilder is primarily written for religious leaders, but there is enough solid information in it for the layperson.
A lot can be learned from bad leaders, but healthy leaders is what we really need. Using brain science and some leadership models, the authors show how leaders can lead with joy and act like themselves. They encourage remaining relational and modeling what it's like to endure hardship. They also talk about a sliding maturity scale that all leaders can measure themselves against.
Many good and bad examples of leaders are given. Both as leaders the authors have served under and some of their own mistakes. If we are going to have healthy churches, we need to have the kind of healthy leadership that grows and doesn't rely on using emotions to browbeat others into obedience. This holds true in the business world.
The authors use a curious quirk of using parentheses to denote who is writing. I understand why they chose to do this, but I found it a bit odd. Other than that, the book reads well, the science seems solid, and the guidelines seem positive and encouraging to follow. I appreciated the advice given and I will definitely take some things away from reading this book.
I received a review copy of this ebook from Moody Publishers and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook."

Brianna3 Stars Out Of 5Book ReviewMay 20, 2017BriannaQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3Since I am now in a position of leadership in my career, I requested Rare Leadership by Marcus Warner and Jim Wilder in order to learn more about leadership. The premise of Rare Leadership is the importance of learning to train and utilize the fast-track of the brain essentially the part of the brain that works faster than conscious thought. The first part of the book is devoted to this discussion. Unfortunately, this part of the book felt long and difficult to understand. However, readers with similar opinions have the option of beginning in the second part, in lieu of reading the whole book. (Even the authors propose this option.)
The second part of Rare Leadership focuses on how to put into practice the components of R.A.R.E remain relational, act like yourself, return to joy, and endure hardship well. These chapters were much more beneficial for me, although I also wish the authors would have included more specific examples. At times, it felt like the advice was a small taste of what could be obtained through other extensive trainings. The authors included many stories to give real-life examples, but a lot of the subjects attended these referenced trainings.
Overall, I think readers can garner helpful guidance from Rare Leadership. The book did not hold everything I anticipated or hoped for, but it certainly wasnt a waste of time either. I would recommend Rare Leadership to someone who is interested in learning more about leadership, but also is fascinated by brain physiology and rather abstract thinking.
