Lead Like Jesus

Ken Blanchard is famous in the management world for writing classics like The One Minute Manager and for developing the theory of Situational Leadership.

Yesterday I finished reading his book Lead Like Jesus. Tremendous. It looks at he head, heart, hands, and habits of leading like Jesus. I need to read it again.

In the final chapter he lists questions that Jesus might ask leaders. These are the ones about the heart:

  • Do you love Me?
  • Do you trust Me?
  • Will you serve Me by serving others?
  • Do you believe that I will always love you regardless of your performance or the opinion of others?
  • Are you willing to set aside instant gratification, recognition, and power to honor Me by doing the right thing?
