Summary, etc.: Is successful leadership measured simply by the outcomes a leader achieves, or is there another-more essential-yardstick for measuring success? In Redefining Leadership, author, pastor, and college president Joe Stowell shows us that the best leaders are driven by Christ-formed character, and that truly successful leadership is not defined by the standards of this world but by the counter-intuitive practices and perspectives of the Kingdom of Christ. With compelling personal stories and insights from the Bible, he highlights the contrast between these two radically different leadership styles and demonstrates that the teaching and example of King Jesus, the world's most unlikely leader, is the only model of leadership that leads to maximum results, results that will have an eternal impact.

    Have you ever felt inadequate for the task of leadership? Great leaders know that leadership is not about power and authority, it's about influence---leading others with moral authority. But as failed, sinful people, we often fall short. We fail those who look to us for guidance and direction. We feel inadequate to the task, knowing that our decisions and our actions are often flawed by selfish ambition and pride.
    In Redfining Leadership, author, pastor, and college president Joe Stowell explores the unique way in which Jesus Christ transforms our understanding of leadership. He shows us how our awareness of our weaknesses should lead us to greater dependence on God. Stowell explains why an emphasis on process trumps our short-term goal of producing, actually leading to greater long-term fruitfulness in ministry and life. He reminds us that while people matter more than our tasks, wise leaders will balance the needs of people with the vision that God has given to them.
    How we lead is never as important as who we follow. The best leaders don't rely on their own strength, they follow Jesus.
