'Walter Wright has been paying attention to the nature of leadership for a long time and offers timely and seasoned help. He has thought, taught, prayed, conversed, and read widely and deeply in and outside the Bible on the nature of leadership and has worked what he has learned into his own life' (from the foreword by Eugene Peterson). Relational Leadership is the result of his dedication.
Drawing on leadership theory, his own experience, and insights from Jude, Philemon, and Colossians, Wright has written a book that will be valuable to anyone in a position of leadership. Leadership is not an assigned role, but a way of living that suffuses everything we do and are. The goal of this book is to empower others to contribute to achieving the mission of the organisations with which they are involved. Wright not only presents an ideal, but offers practical suggestions for handling such thorny issues as the management of volunteers and performance reviews.
Relational Leadership will stimulate your thinking about leadership and management, both causing you to ask questions and find answers. Ultimately, this will enable you to invest yourself in the people for whose success you are responsible.
