The Bible on Leadership: From Moses to Matthew : Management Lessons for Contemporary Leaders

Synopsis

Millions have been inspired by the Bibles spiritual lessons. Now, Lorin Woolfe provides a unique way to view the Bible... for leadership lessons that can be applied to our modern business world. Consider Davids courage and innovation in slaying Goliath with just a stone and a sling; Moses outstanding "succession planning" in picking Joshua; Joseph and the political skills that brought him to the seat of power; and of course, Jesus compassion, communication skills, and vision that launched Christianity (a long-term success by any measure). These are leaders among leaders. Their achievements -- and their inspired methods of achievement -- offer a wholly different perspective on business leadership. For the dozens of Biblical stories presented, the book provides:
• A concise retelling of each story
• One (or more) leadership lessons suggested by each story
• Examples of contemporary business leaders who exhibit some of the inspired traits of these ancient leaders, including: Fred Smith of FedEx, Howard Shultz of Starbucks, Tom Chappell of Toms of Maine (a toothpaste with a mission), Roy Vagelos of Merck, and many more. The chapters cover these universal topics: Courage
• Purpose
• Communication
• Honesty and Integrity
• Power and Influence
• Performance Management
• Team Building
• Humility
• Compassion
• Justice
• Encouragement and Consequences
• Wisdom
• Creating the Future Each topic concludes with a list of key points to keep in mind as readers continue on their own leadership journeys.
