Is successful leadership measured simply by the outcomes a leader achieves, or is there anothermore essentialyardstick for measuring success? In Redefining Leadership, author, pastor, and college president Joe Stowell shows us that the best leaders are driven by Christ-formed character, and that truly successful leadership is not defined by the standards of this world but by the counter-intuitive practices and perspectives of the Kingdom of Christ. With compelling personal stories and insights from the Bible, he highlights the contrast between these two radically different leadership styles and demonstrates that the teaching and example of King Jesus, the worlds most unlikely leader, is the only model of leadership that leads to maximum results, results that will have an eternal impact.

It's packed with information however it lacks a certain level of story telling to tie in the information in an engaging manner. All in all I would say it is a good book for a "new" leader especially if they are in ministry.

Leaders. We've all had bad ones and good ones. But good or bad is a secondary issue. Christlike or not is the primary issue. As Stowell shows, Christlikeness has everything to do with character -so much more than just getting results or outcome driven leadership.
Joe Stowell writes about leadership and leading like Jesus: what it is and why it matters.. He carefully makes a case distinguishing between character driven and results driven leadership. He accurately uses Biblical examples and humbly sharing personal examples, One of the most meaningful lines for me in the book was: "He was under the delusion that God's positive work through him affirmed that God was pleased with him and his life."
Stowell's book divisions are helpful in the redefining leadership process: a redefined priority, identity, and a redefined leader.
This is a deep book. While the essence is clear, the depths are profound. It is not a fast read. It needs to be processed and applied. But in so doing, will change one's life as well as the entity being led.
If you are a pastor, a CEO, or in any kind of leadership- you not only need to get this book, you need to review it annually with your team.
