Book release: Leadership with a Servant’s Heart: Leading in Your Workplace
FAITH NEWS SERVICE – October 27, 2022 – Clarksville, Maryland (USA). Great leadership always matters. Yet, there is a noticeable mismatch between what employees want and what leaders deliver. It’s what drives the current state of the workforce. Best-selling author Kevin Wayne Johnson addresses a myriad of challenges and solutions for aspiring and current leaders to narrow this gap. The result is that leaders will know better, do better, and ultimately, lead better. They are servant leaders.
Leadership is a spiritual gift from God (Romans 12:6-8). His Word reminds us that “Every good and perfect gift is from above… (James 1:17). “ Unfortunately, it’s a gift that, from time to time, is misused and abused by some in positions of power and authority. When this happens, leaders at all levels, across multiple venues, cause those who they are entrusted to lead to walk away. People don’t leave organizations. They leave because of poor leadership (people).
Praise for Leadership with a Servant’s Heart:
You can learn how to achieve your destiny by helping others to achieve theirs. Servant leadership coupled with life-long learning makes this book a literal training manual for effective personal, team, and organizational leadership.
