Contemporary Leadership Challenges

Christian Reflections On The Leadership Challenge [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Contemporary Leadership Challenges by Aida Alvinius Book Summary:

Social and behavioral science has for decades studied and recognized leadership as a social exchange between leaders and followers. But leadership is rather complex, and as such, it tends to lead to an increased interest within and across different disciplines. This book is an attempt to provide theoretical and empirical framework to better understand leadership challenges in various contexts. The authors cover an array of themes that span from an individual level to an organizational and societal level. In this volume, two sections are presented. The first section based on individual level focuses on different leadership styles and abilities, and the other section provides theories to understand leadership in public administration, in industrial settings and in nonprofit organizations.

Pastoral Leadership

Christian Reflections On The Leadership Challenge [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Pastoral Leadership by Won Sang Lee Book Summary:

In ascending to heaven, Jesus Christ gave the church the Great Commission to expand the gospel to all nations. Despite this biblical commission, it is still an unfinished task. As leaders of local churches, pastors play a crucial part in this endeavor. Pastoral leadership principles have varied widely throughout history, yet it is interesting to discover the similarities between pastoral leadership principles practiced by John Chrysostom (AD 347-407) in Antioch and Constantinople, and Won Sang Lee (1937-) in Washington, DC. Despite ministering 1600 years apart, both pastors share the same core values: care for people, Christ-like character, biblical preaching, and world missions. This suggests that continued emphasis on these principles will play a significant role in fulfilling the Great Commission, independent of time and place.

After You Believe

Christian Reflections On The Leadership Challenge [Pdf/ePub] eBook

After You Believe by N. T. Wright Book Summary:

From the author of the acclaimed Simply Christian and Surprised by Hope comes a book that addresses the question that has plagued humans for centuries—what is our purpose? As Christians, what are we to do with that ambiguous time between baptism and the funeral? It's easy to become preoccupied with who gets into heaven; the real challenge is how we are going to live in the here and now. Wright dispels the common misconception that Christian living is nothing more than a checklist of dos and don'ts. Nor is it a prescription to "follow your heart" wherever it may lead. Instead, After You Believe reveals the Bible's call for a revolution—a transformation of character that takes us beyond our earthly pursuit of money, sex, and power into a virtuous state of living that allows us to reflect God and live more worshipful, fulfilling lives. We are all spiritual seekers, intuitively knowing there is more to life than we suspect. This is a book for anyone who is hoping there is something more while we're here on Earth. There is. We are being called to join the revolution, and Wright insightfully encourages readers to find new purpose and clarity by taking us on an eye-opening journey through key biblical passages that promise to radically alter the work of the church and the direction of our lives.

Leading from the Second Chair

Christian Reflections On The Leadership Challenge [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Leading from the Second Chair by Mike Bonem,Roger Patterson Book Summary:

LEADING FROM THE SECOND CHAIR will raise awareness of the need for strong leaders in secondary positions. It will describe the value they can bring to their organization and to primary leaders when they are serving at their full potential. It will reshape the way they view their role, with an emphasis on their own responsibility as leaders. It recognizes the unique challenges and frustrations of serving in a subordinate position and equips these leaders with the attitudes and skills that they will need to survive and thrive in this new paradigm. Because of the scarcity of resources for second chair leaders, particularly those in the church, this book will offer a practical way to improve the performance of any organization. Leading Congregational Change discussed the importance of a "vision community"--a diverse group of key members who discern and implement the vision for a congregation--to guide the transformation of a church. This work will extend the theme of an empowered leadership team as we explore how individual clergy and laity can lead effectively.

Thoughts on "The Passion of Christ" by Bob Faulkner Book Summary:

Everyone just had to see it. I remember the hype, the rush to the Cinemas. Even to this day many believers consider this film a must-see. I am asking God's people to take a second look at this, and any "Christian" movie, originating in the Hollywood style. Are we sure that we want those who trust us to be influenced by images and words that claim to be from God but in fact are from a visionary of Rome? Here is the product of an investigation I carried out regarding "The Passion of Christ" . I think you will be a bit surprised.

Jumping for Joy by D. J. Paquet Book Summary:

Life is our most precious asset. And love ought to be our most honourable endeavour. But in the busyness of our days, we can lose touch with what really matters.

Directorium Asceticum

Christian Reflections On The Leadership Challenge [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Directorium Asceticum by John Baptist Scaramelli,John Baptist Scaramelli Sj,Brother Hermenegild Book Summary:

This is a four volume set of books. This is volume 1 The" Guide to the Spiritual Life," as it is called in this edition, although more immediately addressed to Directors of souls, may be used with advantage by all Christians who aspire to perfection. The author himself makes this remark in his Preface or Introduction. It is essentially a practical work, being intended to supply a defect which the author observed in the treatises of previous writers. These had indeed delivered excellent maxims of perfection, but not in such a form as to be immediately applicable to the needs of individual souls. F. Scaramelli has not failed to set forth the scientific, theological, basis of each branch of his subject, following herein mainly the doctrine of St Thomas; but he has always kept before his eyes the needs of those Priests who would desire to have some assistance in directing souls called to something higher than the ordinary Christian life. Each volume contains a Skeleton outline for sermons for the Sunday s of the year, treating of the material dealt with in that particular volume. Volume 1 contains The Means to Arrive at Christian Perfection, which include the Desire of Perfection, choice of a good director, reading of spiritual books, meditation on the maxims of our faith, mental and vocal prayer, the presence of God, Confession, daily examination of conscience, frequent Communion and devotion to the Saints, especially the Blessed Virgin Mary. Volume 2 contains Hindrances in the path to Christian perfection with the means to overcome them, which include the sense of touch, sense of taste, sense of sight, sense of hearing, sense of smell, the use of the tongue in speech, ill-regulated and unmortified passions, love of worldly goods and riches, love of worldly honor and glory, attacks of the devil and scruples. Volume 3 contains the Immediate Dispositions for Christian Perfection which are found through prudence, justice, fortitude and temperance. These are also found through the virtues of religion, devotion, obedience, patience, chastity, meekness and humility. Volume 4 contains the Essence of Christian Perfection, which comes from the three Theological Virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity. Charity is divided into love of God, conformity with His holy will and love of neighbor. This volume concludes with an index to the entire set of books.

The Executive's Paradox

Christian Reflections On The Leadership Challenge [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Executive's Paradox by David G. Jensen Book Summary:

"When I find a short seller, I want to tear his heart out and eat it before his eyes while he's still alive." That's Dick Fuld, the high-commanding former CEO of the now-defunct Lehman Brothers (founded in 1850)... Before the Great Recession, Fuld's chief risk officer at Lehman Brothers issued a warning about the "sense of complacency" regarding risk. Two months later, the bull-in-the-china-shop Fuld gored his own risk officer. Fuld sacked her because he was unable or unwilling to address THE EXECUTIVE'S PARADOX. In fact, Fuld failed to stretch when he was pulled by two distinct paradoxes - one leadership and one strategic... Instead of managing the tension between his commanding leadership style (take-charge drill sergeant) AND his empowering style (take-care servant leader), Fuld's drill sergeant always won the tug-of-war. In addition, Fuld also failed to manage a strategic paradox - the one most responsible for the Great Recession: increasing profits AND mitigating risk... --- Unfortunately, Fuld is not the great exception of what happens when leaders mismanage THE EXECUTIVE'S PARADOX, he is the great example. Fuld has a lot of company. Consider... 1... Toyota, long the high-flyer in the auto industry, crashed and lost $2.5 billion more than General Motors during the Great Recession. Toyota leaders over-focused on growth instead of managing the tension between growth AND quality. 2... Boeing's innovative 787 aircraft, the Dreamliner, was more than three years late and billions of dollars over budget because executives mismanaged the stability AND change paradox. 3... High-tech guru Geoffrey Moore points out that many former technology giants, such as Digital Equipment Corporation, Silicon Graphics, and Wang, lost their way because they failed to stretch when pulled by today's realities AND tomorrow's dreams. --- These anecdotes are the tip of the iceberg. There is a mass of evidence below the surface demonstrating that leaders who fail to manage THE EXECUTIVE'S PARADOX fail to lead. One study of 1,000 organizations over a 20-year period discovered that 45 out of every 100 executives suffered sinking profits because they mismanaged their paradoxes... If you ever feel like you're paddling down a raging river with crowds of demanding stakeholders on opposite riverbanks, all shouting at you to paddle to their side at the same time, this book is for you. --- THE EXECUTIVE'S PARADOX teaches you how to avoid picking sides when you're pulled by opposing leadership and strategic demands. You learn stretch, not snap, as you develop new, business-boosting skills, such as how to::: A --- Expand your long-term, strategic thinking AND deliver short-term, bottom-line results. B --- Gain buy-in to any change AND build a platform of stability. C --- Demand accountability for results AND increase employee engagement. D --- Innovate by exploring the future AND optimize by exploiting the present. --- DAVID JENSEN knows your leadership challenges because he faced them when he was an executive. He understands that you have many options to deal with your challenges because he's studied them as a researcher. Dave delivers proven tools that get results because he's tested what works with over 10,000 leaders. Isn't it time to put his decades of leadership experience to work for you? - When you purchase THE EXECUTIVE'S PARADOX, you also are also buying access to the 360 assessment - THE EXPANSIVE LEADERSHIP MODEL tm (XLM) at no extra charge. Your book gives you the website, where you can complete the assessment FREE. After you complete the assessment, you can download XLM 25-page report for free too. Your report provides your scores (and other raters' scores, if you choose to invite them to rate you) on each 16 core competencies described in the book. - Thus, you get the book and the XLM 360 leadership assessment all for one low price. Isn't time to turbo charge your leadership skills now?

Freedom Bargains

Christian Reflections On The Leadership Challenge [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Freedom Bargains by Rev Joshua S. Boateng Book Summary:

In our Christian walk in this world, we are always presented with choices and subtle offers that can appear appealing. However, we often ignore the small print, either deliberately, or through ignorance. Interestingly, the Israelites, faced similar offers, as they 'negotiated' with Pharaoh for their freedom from slavery. Freedom Bargains explores five subtle offers usually presented to us as alternatives to God's ideal of real and total freedom. It provides lessons from the wisdom of Moses and his attention to detail, in avoiding these subtle traps (schemes), intended to keep believers in perpetual bondage and also provides vital biblical keys for walking in complete freedom. The book details the need to be alert to our life's purpose as spelt out by God, in being able to navigate past all the traps that are intended to trip us into living life below the level God intends for us. It encourages and challenges believers to re-examine God's original intention for setting us free. It encourages us to be alert to and remain steadfast in the liberty with which we have been set free and to let this be manifest in all areas of our lives. The book is written in a contemporary, conversational style with real life (personal, family, social and political) examples which speaks to current popular and social culture and makes it easily accessible to those new to engaging with the Bible as well as more mature believers. This notwithstanding, the book's message is strongly biblical and culturally informed. The chapters include contemporary real-life stories and quotations from a wide spectrum of well-known Christian and political leaders, which will make it easy for most readers to identify with. It is my desire for you to believe again that you can walk in complete freedom in all aspects of your life and to go ahead and live it. Above all, I desire that all believers will rise up and be outward looking to impart their freedom found in Christ, to other people in their various fields of endeavor.

Reflections on Renewal

Reflections on Renewal by Donna M. Eschenauer,Harold D. Horell Book Summary:

The United States bishops ' document Co-Workers in the Vineyard of the Lord is a vital resource for the ongoing development of lay ecclesial ministry. Building upon Co-Workers and affirming the recent renewal of the laity and the flowering of lay ministries, Reflections on Renewal contributes to efforts to reshape ministerial language and practices in the church today. It explores the theological and pastoral foundations of ministry, including how al ministry is rooted in the sacraments of initiation, and suggests ways of refining or redefining our understandings of lay ecclesial and ordained ministries so that we as church can respond more fully to the call of God in our lives and world. At the same time, the book recognizes that lay ministry developed organically as the work of the Spirit and is, foremost, a cause for rejoicing. This collection of essays is grounded in Fordham University's commitment to the church and its mission in the world. It honors the thousands of laypeople who have answered a call to serve the church in ministry.

UnCorinthian Leadership

Christian Reflections On The Leadership Challenge [Pdf/ePub] eBook

UnCorinthian Leadership by David I. Starling Book Summary:

Amid the torrent of books on leadership that flood the marketplace of contemporary Christianity, UnCorinthian Leadership takes a fresh, challenging, and biblical approach. David Starling examines the teaching and leadership practices of Paul in 1 Corinthians, and finds both a sharp critique of the Corinthianized practices that are endemic in much modern Western Christianity and a positive, compelling theological vision for how leadership ought to function among the people of Christ. The account of Christian leadership that emerges is grounded in careful, contextual study of 1 Corinthians, and thoughtfully applied to the circumstances and cultural pressures of our own times. Paying close attention to the situation Paul addresses and the shape of his arguments, Starling highlights the vivid relevance and enduring power of the letter. Students of 1 Corinthians will find an illuminating guide to the contemporary application of the letter; Christian leaders and students of leadership will find a refreshingly biblical account of what makes Christian leadership Christian.

Reflections on the Muslim Leadership Question in Uganda by George W. Kanyeihamba Book Summary:

Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and other foreign religions have faced an uphill task in establishing themselves in Uganda. Initially competing with the established traditional African religions, in due course they turned against each other in their search for converts. Islam was not immune from sectarianism, and soon after the religiously neutral NRM came to power in Uganda they faced serious problems emanating from divisions in the Muslim leadership. A Government sponsored conference and general assembly were held to resolve matters, but the initiative failed at the eleventh hour. Here the chief government representative in those meetings reflects on the events and why the initiative failed on the brink of success.

Spiritual Abuse Recovery

Christian Reflections On The Leadership Challenge [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Spiritual Abuse Recovery by Barbara M. Orlowski Book Summary:

What factors contribute to active Christians in ministry leaving their church and becoming exiting statistics? Every year dedicated Christian people leave churches because of spiritual abuse. The stories of people who left their home church because of a negative and hurtful experience paint a picture of a widespread occurrence which beckons consideration by church leaders and church congregants alike. Spiritual abuse, the misuse of spiritual authority to maltreat followers in the Christian Church, is a complex issue. This book shows how people processed their grief after experiencing spiritual abuse in their local church and how they rediscovered spiritual harmony. Their spiritual journey shows how one may grow through this devastating experience. This book offers a thoughtful look at the topic of spiritual recovery from clergy abuse through the eyes of those who have experienced it. It invites church leaders to consider this very real dysfunction in the Church today and aims to demonstrate a path forward to greater freedom in Christ after a season of disillusionment with church leadership.

Ironies Leaders Navigate

Christian Reflections On The Leadership Challenge [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Ironies Leaders Navigate by Schuyler Totman Book Summary:

Leaders constantly rely upon power. In fact, leadership and power have so much in common that their definitions are often functionally identical. Every act of leadership is an act of power. Hence, the better we understand power, the better we understand leadership. What, then, are the consequences if, as scholars argue, different people understand power differently and often fundamentally misunderstand power? One consequence turns out to be the emergence of a number of ironies. Another consequence is the opportunity to understand leadership settings better through a careful, redeeming, synergistic look at power. To that end, this book first presents roughly sixty studied, power-related dynamics, and then takes a closer look at how these dynamics clarify leadership settings. Ultimately, this study seeks a better understanding of a particular leadership setting--the local church. Challenges distinct to this setting are explored in marked sections, while the book as a whole offers useful lenses through which to assess the challenges all leaders navigate.

God’s People on the Move

Christian Reflections On The Leadership Challenge [Pdf/ePub] eBook

God’s People on the Move by vanThanh Nguyen,John M. Prior Book Summary:

On the highways and byways of every continent, hundreds of millions of immigrants are constantly on the move. Because of growing inequalities of wealth caused by unregulated economic globalization, political and ethnic conflicts, environmental degradation, instant communication, and viable means of transportation, more and more people are migrating than ever before. Crossing international borders, whether compelled or voluntarily, is a major characteristic of our present epoch. No countries or regions are immune from this reality. Facing the growing scope, complexity and impact of the current worldwide phenomenon, God's People on the Move seeks to develop appropriate biblical and missiological responses to the issue of human migration and dislocation. The book is divided into two major sections. Part one, "Biblical Perspectives on Migration and Mission," contains six essays that focus on various biblical themes or texts that deal with migration and mission. Part two, "Contemporary Issues of Migration and Mission," contains six essays that address different immigration issues around the world. The contributors to this volume are women and men from different ethnic backgrounds, working and living on five continents. The internationality of the contributors gives this volume a unique global perspective on migration and mission.
