Product Description

Paul admonishes us to defer to those in authority, but what if they're incompetent or half-hearted? How can you lead if you're not in charge? One of the greatest myths of leadership is that you must be in charge in order to lead. The truth is: great leaders don’t wait to be in charge to begin leading. Warning against manipulation and coercion, Clay Scroggins helps you develop genuine leadership qualities—including taking responsibility, cultivating influence, and doing what is necessary in a way that honors and respects God and others. Whether you are just getting started on your leadership path or you have been at it for years, this book will be an invaluable resource along your journey.

Publisher's Description

Are you hungry to help others through leadership but don't feel like you have the authority?

One of the greatest myths of leadership is that you must be in charge in order to lead. Great leaders don't buy it. Great leaders--whether they have the official authority or not--learn how to be an influential presence wherever they are.

In How to Lead When You're Not in Charge, author and pastor Clay Scroggins explains the nature of leadership and what's needed to be a great leader--even when you answer to someone else.

Drawing from biblical principles and his experience as the lead pastor of Buckhead Church in Atlanta, Georgia, Clay will help you nurture your vision and cultivate influence with integrity and confidence, even when you lack authority in your organization or ministry.

In this book, Clay will walk you through the challenge of leadership and the four basic behaviors all great leaders have and how to cultivate them:

  • Leading yourself
  • Choosing positivity
  • Thinking critically
  • Rejecting passivity

With practical wisdom and humor, Clay Scroggins will help you free yourself to become the great leader you want to be so you can make a difference. Even when you're not in charge.

Editorial Reviews

Clay's approach is authentic, fun, and engaging. With experience and practical examples, Clay reminds us that our influence is not tied to our titles. Regardless of your industry, if you are in an entry-level or C-level job, this book will become a must-read for you and your team. -- Jeremy Walls, SVP, chief marketing officer, Miami Dolphins

I'll let you in on a leadership secret: people don't follow titles. They follow courage and integrity. That means true leaders become people of influence, regardless of their spot on an organizational chart. If you're ready to lead right where you are, Clay Scroggins understands--and How to Lead When You're Not in Charge can show you how to start. -- Dave Ramsey, bestselling author and nationally syndicated radio show host
