With simple yet profound principles from the life of Jesus and dozens of stories and leadership examples from his life experiences, veteran author, speaker and leadership expert Ken Blanchard guides readers through the process of discovering how to lead like Jesus. He describes it as the process of aligning two internal domains-the heart and the head-and two external domains-the hands and the habits. These four dimensions of leadership form the outline for this very practical and transformational book.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Servant (http://justinfarley.blogspot.com/2009/04/servant.html)  Sep 12, 2009
I recently completed a reading critique of a book by Ken Blanchard and Phil Hodges titled, Lead Like Jesus: Lessons from the Greatest Leadership Role Model of All Time. Here are a few of my observations:

What is the author's main purpose in writing this book?
The authors' main purpose in writing this book was to design "a tool to help [leaders] take God beyond the spiritual compartment of [their] private spiritual life and to give him free reign in all [their] daily actions and relationships, especially [their] leadership roles" (Blanchard and Hodges, xiv). Too many followers of Christ are content with gaining more understanding and not allowing that information to translate into a transformed perspective, accomplishment, or lifestyle. In other words, leaders cannot afford to compartmentalize their faith. Character and credibility demand that one be holistic in his message and methods. The way one treats his body will affect the way he challenges his organization which will in turn affect the way he mentors his own family. Too many disciples of Christ have deceived themselves into believing that they could control an area of their life and thus have avoided bringing that area under submission to Jesus. The Scriptures challenge the reader to, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight" (Proverbs 3:5-6).

List two items of information this book provided of which you were not previously aware.
The authors' instruction concerning the head of a servant leader was extraordinarily helpful information. The section's emphasis was upon Jesus' personal purpose in life and ministry (Blanchard and Hodges, 106-110). They warned against the "tyranny of the `or'" and challenged one to instead embrace the perception of "both/and." Whatever vision a leader chooses to cast and implement, he must be sure that the direction will not only accomplish the desired goal but that it will simultaneously develop people along the way. Leaders can and should enjoy the results and the relationships (influence and integrity). Sometimes the focus tends to be on how best to send people instead of how best to serve them. Though Jesus did commission his first followers to go out and make other disciples, he also assured them that he would be with them until the end of the age (and even went as far as to empower them with the Holy Spirit). The natural tendency is to become so focused upon the sermon, strategy, or schedule that the people are lost in the process. One must be intentional in his relationships - acknowledging and responding to their stories, struggles, and dreams.

Another item of instruction that was appreciated was the teaching on the hands of a servant leader - specifically on transitioning one's attention from the call to the commission. A pastor must be purposeful in evaluating the leadership pipeline, commonly referred to as a discipleship strategy, in his church. A convert must be treated as a novice in Jesus Christ (Blanchard and Hodges, 126). The new believer needs fundamental instruction before he can progress along the spiritual journey. Along with that, he will also need someone devoted to his development (one to show him how to read his bible and to take the first step of water baptism). There comes a point where that disciple becomes an apprentice (Blanchard and Hodges, 130). He will need a small group where he will be encouraged, corrected, and protected from pride or confusion. This is where many of our new believers are tragically lost in the mix. If all goes well, he then will reach the place of a journeyman (Blanchard and Hodges, 132). He has now been connected to the love of Christ (novice), the life of the church (apprentice) and now must be connected to the needs of the world. The church has the responsibility and privilege of directing his attention to a place of ministry that best aligns with his gifts, talents, experiences, and passions. Finally, continuing on he will one day become a master or teacher. This is the life stage where he is to be entrusted with the opportunity of taking a novice of his own (Blanchard and Hodges, 135).

What was the most helpful part of this book and why?
The most helpful part of the book was the authors' instruction on the heart and importance of ensuring that one is growing in the image of a servant leader. The authors warned against the reality and danger of fear (Blanchard and Hodges, 53). Too often one can be caught up in basing his identity on his performance and in the approval of others that surround him. Fear of failure commonly stems from a fear of rejection. This fear separates a leader from God because of the shame that ensues. The fear also can separate a leader from others because he ceases to believe that his team would understand or accept him in his authentic state. Finally, fear can even drive him from who he truly is meant to be due to the fact that he could easily begin to develop the pattern of gravitating towards excuses instead of repentance (Blanchard and Hodges 59). One can settle for comparing himself to others which either gives him a false confidence or a general frustration of his present circumstances. This distorted perception of life commonly leads to mistakenly coming to expect disappointment and deceit (Blanchard and Hodges, 60). The bible warns that, "Fear of man will prove to be a snare." (Proverbs 29:25). The authors remind the reader to be careful to believe that only God is the "omniscient audience and authority for [one's] decisions" (Blanchard and Hodges, 63).

Copy one quotation from the book that seemed particularly important to you and interact in your own words with the portion you quoted.
One quotation from the book that was particularly important was, "Learning to lead like Jesus is more than an announcement; it is a commitment to lead in a different way" (Blanchard and Hodges, 19). According to the authors, this transformational journey of leading like Jesus begins with personal leadership (Blanchard and Hodges, 20-21). They challenged the reader to ask oneself two questions. One must ponder, "Whose am I?" Leaders must acknowledge that they are not the final authority or the primary audience in their ministry. One must never seek the approval or applause of his supervisor, his congregation, his peers, or even his spouse. Rather, his primary objective must be to celebrate God and to submit to his plans and purposes. With that in mind, the second question to be asked concerning perspective is, "Who am I?" At his own water baptism, "Jesus replied, `Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness'" (Matthew 3:15). A great leader of people must first learn to be a great follower of God. Following his baptism and inauguration into ministry, Jesus was quickly ushered into a season of temptation. In a similar way, each and every day will be full of moments where leaders will have to decide to either be about the Kingdom of Heaven or the empires of this world.
 
Essential reading for any leader  Jul 5, 2009
Hands down the best book on leadership I have ever read. I go back to it often, as its instruction is right on!
 
Disappointed  Mar 2, 2009
I ordered this book on January 29 and it is not been delivered. It is now March 1, and the seller keeps saying it can take 21 business days. It has been over 21 business days. I lost my money and did not receive the book. The seller has no accountablity?
 
Lead Like Jesus  Jan 30, 2009
This book is what America needs today more than anything else! The Gordon Greeco style of Greed is King has caused American businesses to suffer and America is sufferering! Read how Ken Blanchard says we can turn this around!
 
Get it and study it!!!  Jan 5, 2009
Our men's group picked this during one of our stretches last year. It is one of the best inspirational reads out there for working on your own faith journey. This book will develop a substantially different way of thinking about your relationships in life whether they are family, work, church or faith. It is a must read.
