Contains chapters such as: “Don't Waste God's Time,” “Customers Don't Always Come First,” “Good Stewardship Doesn't Mean Stinginess,” “Time-Management Training can be a Con Game,” and “Be Alert for Huge Mistakes.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Christian leadership reexamined February 12, 2009
Format:Paperback
You know, I am not a big fan of leadership books. Most that I have looked at over the years offered prescribed methods, "21 Steps" or "17 Laws". These are good for some and I salute those who have found value in them, but they're just not me. This book was a quick read, which is good, because it's one that should be read over and over. With a huge dose of pragmatism and lots of simple ideas and tips that could really affect a positive change in any organization, Jim really equips leaders with actionable tools and exercises to go beyond the book.

Although it didn't take long to read LR, the book isn't through once the last page is turned. Jim will be the first to tell you that he is not an "answer guy" and I was glad that this book did not offer pat answers or sure-fire formulas, instead it served up plenty of questions - questions that lead the reader to search themselves and to seek the Lord to find out what needs to change in them in order to be who they are supposed to be, in whatever leadership role they are in.

Finally, something I appreciated most about this book is that Jim didn't eviscerate scripture in an attempt to make his point. I only found one instance where he "stretched" the meaning of a particular passage, but he was clear to point out that he was doing so. In all other instances I was amazed at the truths of scripture as they apply to this topic of leadership and our need to correct our understanding of what that term really means and the implications we can realize when we really allow God's leadership principles to realign our leadership practices. I highly recommend this book, it's one you'll want to keep handy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leadership Through a New Lens February 11, 2009
Format:Paperback
Jim Seybert's new book, Leadership Re:Vision, is a breath of fresh air. Jim uses his down to earth, common sense style to take a new, focused look at leadership.

Each chapter is broken up into three sections that make it easy to digest and gives you the clear message based on scripture and the decades of leadership Jim has experienced.

It's a great read for any leader, whether you're in a business, non-profit or mission organization.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beg for More Help May 6, 2009
Format:Paperback
It comes with the territory. After 20 or more years (my estimate) savvy leaders notice they must work increasingly harder and harder to fight off the subtle signs of leadership arrogance. Experienced leaders remain as leaders because they're good at stuff--but then they start thinking they are great at stuff. And then wham--the arrogance kicks in.

What's the antidote to arrogance? There are many (including a truth-telling spouse), but I encourage colleagues and clients to read-up-a-storm. Diligently. With books that challenge the status quo and the conventional wisdom. This book does that. (See also the "Book Bucket" chapter in Mastering The Management Buckets: 20 Critical Competencies for Leading Your Business or Non-profit.)

If you have any symptoms of attention deficit disorder, this book is made to order. I first scanned the 30 tempting chapter titles and couldn't decide where to start first. So I read Chapter 29, "Soar on Your Own Wings," then jumped back to Chapter 1, "Don't Waste God's Time," then to #27, "It's Not Your Stuff Anyway," and as I began to rate each five-page leadership lesson, I gave five stars to Chapter 4, "Time-Management Training Can be a Con Game." (How can you not read that one?)

In his con game chapter, author Jim Seybert begins when Jesus sent out 36 teams of two each. "It's clear that Jesus understood the futility of having too few people assigned to an important job. The size of the task exceeded the limits of the available workforce, and Jesus tells his followers to pray that more helpers will join them along the way. The additional bodies were not going to come by chance; the Lord of the harvest would provide them.
