Jesus is simply the greatest leadership model of all time, and He asks us to make a difference in the world we live in by being effective servant leaders. Ken Blanchard, Rick Warren and Bill Hybels join forces to offer a clear, insightful look at Jesus, the servant leader. Lead Like Jesus is a new concept to help people take God out of the spiritual compartment of their private spiritual life and give Him free reign in all their daily actions and relationships, especially their leadership roles. Jesus set the basic foundation for the leadership journey throughout his ministry. During His time on earth, Jesus poured His life into the training of His disciples in the first three leadership arenas, and during that process, He equipped them to follow His leadership philosophy after He was gone as they moved to the organizational level and attempted to establish the church.

I definitely loved this book. It is so inspiring to me. It is great to see that not all corporate America is corrupt but instead some still have a great Christian foundation and they apply it on their everyday as we all should.

Great content

The only reason I don't give it 5 starts is due to sound quality. This was recorded at some sort of seminar and they did a pretty poor job on some of the recording of it, although its not anything that will be too distracting. The content was very good. I have listened to and read a ton of leadership material and this book touched on some points I have never heard before. Any Christian should see themselves as a leader, since leadership is influence and we all should be trying to influence our world. So, this book would be very useful for any Christian in my opinion. Its also easy to follow along with. They have about 5 or 6 people who speak, so you get to hear a lot of different perspectives.

this book is ok

This book is good and it has some good points in it, but it is not a book, it is a confrence where people take turns talking about the same subject, putting in their point of view. If listening to confrences, then this is the book for you. But if you prefer books that are well oganized and put together, then you might want to look elseware.

This is a conference that involves many speakers and lots of material. The speakers are generally very good and have lots of information on leading like Jesus. The focus in on Jesus as the model for leadership and some of the speakers gave content to this theme and some told about their experience trying to lead like Jesus. Overall, very worth while listening.

The best thing I could say about this program is that it is lasting! Unlike a leadership program that you may inplement today and change tomorrow, this is one that should never change from your philosophy of how we should lead in our personal and professional lives.

This was wonderful and refreshing to listen to. I think every one should listen to it, not only Leaders, 'It's for everyone"

Seemed like a sermon more than anything. I expected it to be like Jesus, CEO but it was a service. However, the format did not take away from the principles that the authors were trying to get across. Would Recommend
