Put your flawed foot forward. Pick up most leadership books and you’ll find strategies for leveraging your power and minimizing your areas of weakness. But rather than work against your weakness, why not draw from a deeper well of strength? God favors leaders who make the most of the power that comes from brokenness. Go ahead and take full advantage of your flaws. The most effective leaders don’t rise to power in spite of their weakness; they lead with power because of their weakness. It is their authenticity in limping leadership that compels others to follow them. Flawed leaders are successful because they’re not preoccupied with protecting their image. They are undaunted by chaos and complexity. And they are ready to risk failure in moving an organization from what is to what should be. If you are a leader–or if you have been making excuses to avoid leading–find out how to get the most from your weakness. A limping leader is the kind of person God uses to accomplish amazing things. To go deeper, check out the Leading with a Limp Workbook.… (more)

A wonderful book on leadership by Dan Allender. His writing style is like his personality; intense at times, causing the reader to read slowly to chew and savor every morsel of wisdom in these pages. But the book is also very practical. Thanks, Dan, for sharing so transparently! ( )

Challenging and thought-provoking book! This book identifies the thoughts and feelings I have and am experiencing that accompany the challenges of leadership. This is one I will need to read again just to digest it all. ( )
