Book Review: Leadership on the Line: Staying Alive Through the Dangers of Leading"

Good stuff to get me thinking about how leadership within the church is sometimes a dangerous adventure. Have not finished the book, but I am learning somethings I wish I had known earlier in my pastoral/ministry life. Not a "Christian" book, but still holds good applications for any in leadership.

More it's later...

Finished the book and for not being a "Christian" book it sure ended with a number of illustrations drawn from the life of Jesus. But, even without that I appreciated the ideas shared. I was challenged by the need to stay curious as I lead, as well as open and innocent. I would encourage others leaders, especially those of us who have led for awhile to put some of their thoughts into action.

I have purchased the follow-up book, "The Practice of Adaptive Leadership: Tools and Tactics for Changing your organization and the World." it's kind of like the lab class after the lecture. Looking forward to what the authors have to offer.
