Leadership from the Heart of a Coach!
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungLeadership is a quality that is difficult to define, let alone acquire. Any definition is usually influenced by the biases of the person doing the defining. We might say that defining leadership is a bit like defining art. As the saying goes, "I don't know what art is, but I know it when I see it." That sort of statement may end the discussion about defining art or leadership, but it is not helpful in the least for those of us who need leaders, or want to be leaders, in a world that seems desperately short of people we want to follow. In this book, Coach "D" takes a fresh look at leadership. He blows the whistle on some misconceptions about leadership, and gets to the heart of the matter - which is the heart! As a devout Christian, Coach "D" realizes that leadership is a character trait that is basic to who we are. And it is the outpouring of a heart committed to God. Leadership can be broken down into its various aspects, which Coach "D" has done for the reader, but at its essence it is a quality of Jesus Christ, a quality which we are able to imitate as our hearts are turned more and more toward the heart of God. Jesus both taught and demonstrated the idea of servant leadership, in which a leader must be willing to serve those he leads. This requires great humility, something we don't always associate with leadership. And it requires integrity, that character trait that transcends all others. In this book, Coach "D" has taken the leadership qualities taught and modeled by Jesus and applied them to the world of today, especially the world of our young people.
