As a long time leader in the field, Dr. Certo certainly has the credentials to write a book on leadership. I was thrilled to discover him teaching a course on leadership at Northland Church. I'd studied leadership in depth during graduate school at UCF. I wanted to see the basic concepts of general leadership theory set on the foundation of biblical principles.
This book is clear enough to engage and enlighten the lay person. It's also challenging enough to appeal to those with higher education.
I'd like to spend more time doing in-depth study for a better understanding. For example view the biblical references in context and in translations that are made from the original languages of the Bible.
Even without that, this book was a great inspiration for me regarding my own entrepreneurial endeavors. It’s also impacted my own book idea I started 10 years ago. Though spin-off articles from some of my book chapters have been published in magazines and compilation books, my book idea itself was lacking a cohesive thread that would allow it to reach a broader audience. After taking this class with Dr. Certo, brainstorming possible changes in my book manuscript is beginning to take a turn toward making the development of godly wisdom a central theme that will tie the concepts together.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in developing as a leader--"becoming a wiser leader." It's also a great help for people bent on developing character in life. Even better for those living in the Greater Orlando Florida area—take the class when it’s offered in the community.
If more leaders practiced sound leadership in life and business, we'd have less people abusing leadership positions through coercion and other dysfunctional tactics. Our culture in general would be a better place for working and living.
No matter where we are in our journey of becoming a wiser leader, there is always more to learn and develop. I can keep busy learning to apply the principles in the book for a very long time. As Dr. Certo says, we don’t ever achieve full wisdom 100% of the time here on earth—thus our pursuit of being wiser in all our relationships and decision making.
