Leadership Essentials (Ogden & Meyer): Shaping Vision, Multiplying Influence, Defining Character / November 29, 2007
Requires Accordance 11.2 or above.
Leadership is essential.
Maybe you’ve shied away from leadership because you don’t know what it will involve, or you feel too unsure of your own abilities. But your leadership is needed! In every sector of society, from families to businesses to churches, leadership roles remain empty, waiting for people willing and able to step up and make wise decisions that bring positive change. And, in a world with priorities vastly different from Christ’s, Christian leaders are especially needed to point people to him.
Preparation is essential.
As essential as the leadership itself is the preparation beforehand, which is why Greg Ogden, a seasoned leader himself, has created this interactive guide that will give you the tools you need to lead well, using your unique gifts and experience.
Divided into four sections, this workbook will help you develop character, postures, vision and skills as you participate in the following elements in each chapter:
- a memory verse
- a Bible study
- a reading
- a leadership exercise
By working through these multiple channels of learning you’ll be equipped not just with head knowledge about leadership but with true character formation and awareness of your own abilities that will prepare you for the challenges and choices of leadership.
Designed to work well on your own, with a partner or with a group, Leadership Essentials by Greg Ogden and Daniel Meyer is the essential preparation tool for those who would be led and shaped by Christ to lead others with strength and wisdom.
