Book Review | The Next Generation Leader

Andy Stanley's purpose in writing "The Next Generation Leader" was to pass on to emerging leaders lessons learned in his own leadership experiences. The book centers on five leadership concepts: competence, courage, clarity, coaching, and character. 

Some of the concepts covered are outside of my normal thought-processing (like taking your areas you are strong in, and focusing your time and energy there, instead of trying to do everything).  But, though they may be different from my original way of thinking, they make great sense for all leaders to consider.

If you are looking for a non-Biblically based leadership book, this is not the book for you.  Stanley often uses Biblical references to help explain his point.

"The Next Generation Leader" is an easy {and short} read, but the lessons, if applied, have the ability to make lasting changes. I highly recommend the book for emerging Christian leaders, as well as those seasoned leaders looking for a fresh vision to help change their world for Christ.
