Healthy Leaders: SpiritBuilt Leadership 2
Every leader desires to be a healthy one, while every follower wants his leader to be healthy. The presence of healthy leaders brings blessing and peace to the community, while their absence results in much pain for the people and dysfunctionality for the organization. But, what does “healthy” mean? Humble, gentle, protective, upright, honest, decisive, able to teach, responsible, visionary, self-giving... the list can go on and on. However, the longer the list, the less likely we’ll be motivated to try to become such a leader – how can one ever achieve such an ocean of virtues?
This book presents an alternative! Every characteristic of a healthy leader falls into five categories: Christ, Community, Character, Calling and Competencies. This ConneXions model offers us a biblical and distilled conceptual framework to understand the nature of a “healthy” leader: An effective, healthy Christian leader is a man or woman who knows God, was formed and lives in supportive and accountable community, has strong character, knows the purpose of God and presents it with credibility, clarity and passion, and has the necessary gifts, skills and knowledge to lead the people in the accomplishment of this purpose – and is continually growing in all five areas. This book describes a clear and reachable goal of life transformation for everyone who desires to grow; moreover, its inspiring teaching will nurture and ignite your inner motivation to pursue this transformation. You can become a great leader, a healthy leader!
