Item Description...
Overview
Have we been bamboozled by 10-step guides and seminars on leadership? Is the leadership industry more hype than help?

Ruth Tucker says yes. She challenges conventional wisdom on leadership, making the important distinction between our common Western understanding of leadership and the more biblical concept of legacy.

Leadership Reconsidered tackles current assumptions and asks provocative questions, including

Does leadership training really make a leader?
Is the Bible a guide for leadership? Is Jesus the premier example?
Is servant leadership a misnomer?
Is leadership inherently good, or is it a neutral concept?
What do personality and charisma have to do with leadership?
Is the "Great Man" theory of leadership still valid?
Are women more suited to leadership roles than men?
Can leaderless organizations or groups function effectively?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Sadly Disappointed  Jan 8, 2010
This was a sadly disappointing book on leadership. It almost appears as if the author is simply trying to sell a book for personal gain by touting herself as an expert on a subject which she ultimately seems to understand only partially.
Faulty conclusions, logical fallacies, and political issues fill the book making it an unwise use of time for anyone really interested in understanding what it means to become a person of influence. The author spends as much time complaining about gender inequality, social issues, and climate change as she does discussing other subjects she deems relevant to leadership. A person of leadership and influence doesn't sit around whining about the unjust treatment they have received in their lifetime. Instead, they choose to lead and influence others to change the status quo and to prevent others from going through their experience.
There are some helpful thoughts but it is not worth the time it will take to sift through the mounds of refuse necessary to find those thoughts. The main premise of the book seems to be that leadership cannot be taught. However, leadership can be taught but not if you first do not understand it yourself, the very problem this author possesses.
