The Spirit-Led Leader: Nine Leadership Practices and Soul Principles
In our postmodern, experience-oriented culture, people are longing for greater authenticity, integrity, and depth in their pastors and leaders. Board directors, church members, and staff alike are all eagerly seeking leaders who effectively integrate their spirituality and leadership. Pastors and executives, however, often struggle with knowing how to integrate their spiritual values and practices into their leadership and management roles.
Designed for pastors, executives, administrators, managers, coordinators, and all who see themselves as leaders and who want to fulfill their God-given purpose, The Spirit-Led Leader addresses the critical fusion of spiritual life and leadership for those who not only want to see “results,” but who also desire to care just as deeply about who they are and how they lead as they do about what they produce and accomplish. Geoffrion creates a new vision for spiritual leadership as partly an art, partly a result of careful planning, and always a working of the grace of God.
Praise for the Book
“Before I finished the introduction of The Spirit-Led Leader, I knew that Timothy Geoffrion was refreshingly honest. Halfway through the book, I knew that he had a great ability to integrate essential things. Now, having finished the book, I consider it one of the best books on leadership I’ve read—inspiring, challenging, practical, and balanced.” —Brian McLaren
“Geoffrion’s book offers us a foundation for leadership beyond human striving. He points us instead to profound dependence upon the grace of God at work in us.” —Ruth Haley Barton
“If you’ve ever struggled with the dilemma of how to integrate your personal faith into effective corporate leadership, you will want to read Tim Geoffrion’s book. What is needed, he says, is nothing less than a complete transformation of one’s life.” —Corinne Ware
“At turns inspirational and practical, The Spirt-Led Leader charts a course that is both hopeful and challenging. If Christian leaders base their work on these works, there’s no telling the Kingdom work that can happen!”
