The Genesis of Leadership: What the Bible Teaches Us about Vision, Values and Leading Change
Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
A revealing look at the first five books of the Bible as the origin of leadership and how their ancient examples can help define leadership today.
Most people do not think of the first five books of the Bible as books about leadership. After all, they mostly contain stories about individuals and their families. There are few political stories and even fewer chapters involving large masses of people-the kind of circumstances that we usually associate with leadership. Yet personal relationships parallel the relationships that leaders face in the larger world. The relationship dynamics in the first five books of the Bible point to the core issues of initiative, responsibility and fairness that are the foundations of successful or failed group leadership.
In this inspiring guidebook, Rabbi Nathan Laufer exposes the first books of the Bible as the genesis of leadership, containing and confronting the issues of trust, relationship, vision and persuasiveness with which modern-day leaders must contend. Along with instances of exemplary leadership, Laufer also points out examples of failure to lead, leading with no direction, and leading in the wrong direction that pervade the first five books of the Bible and how these ancient examples can shape our lives as leaders today and in the future.
