Description and Reviews
From The Publisher:
LEADERSHIP. Where do leaders come from? What does it take to be a leader? When does leadership begin?
The answers to these questions may surprise you. Leadership is not confined to position, title, or training, nor is it limited by experience. In fact, these things sometimes cloud the real issue of leadership.
In The Making of a Leader, Dr. Robert Clinton identifies the patterns God uses to develop a leader. By studying the lives of hundreds of historical, biblical, and contemporary leaders, Dr. Clinton has identified six stages of leadership development, and he establishes checkpoints to discover where you are in the process.
As you examine these principles and case studies, you'll begin to recognize that the ministry of leadership flows from a person's being. And that's something God continues to mold throughout a lifetime.
Designed for use as a resource, The Making of a Leader will prove invaluable for students, lay or professional leaders, counselors, or anyone in a leadership training position. It will help you: 1) Identify those with leadership characteristics 2) Direct the development of maturing leaders 3) Recognize where you are in the development process 4) Counsel those who are experiencing periods of trial or frustration
And each chapter concludes with a "personal application" section to further help you become a better prepared leader.
"The Making of a Leader will be a great encouragement to leaders (lay, professional or future) as they begin to see the direct hand of God in their development."-Dr. Robert Clinton
