This book focuses on the multiple dimensions of leadership: the motivation, the heart, the planning, and the execution. My experience as a university Teaching Assistant has shown me that no matter what leadership role we acquire, these aspects are all relevant. The motivation of leadership cannot be selfish because that detracts from group success. My motivation must be for the collective, and I must want to be a good leader, not just successful. The authors also hit the sensitive topic of our hearts, which is essential when applying religion to daily life. The way we conduct ourselves outside of church is a reflection of our hearts. By adopting the attitude of Christ, we are a servant leader. Jesus Christ has proven his effectiveness of leadership because he started with twelve ordinary men and coached them to create a global movement to stand the test of time. Furthermore, I appreciate how this book emphasizes the importance of having a vision for your organization. Sometimes we get lazy and think, "Oh, God will take care of it all! I'll just sit here." This book properly addresses how obedience is an action, and that in order to lead followers towards a goal, we must have a direction. Otherwise, it is a waste of time. Similarly, the book explains how ideas are not the end of the process: we must implement, evaluate, and then evolve. Impact is made to glorify God only when ideas are put into action. Then, as a coach, we must honestly and tactfully evaluate the performance of the group and the individuals (this is also recommended by Egolf and Chester). This feedback is then channeled to improve the organization.
Overall, I found this book to be very useful. It is helpful in explaining how religion is a perspective to be applied to daily world interactions.
