Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good leadership-development resource  Nov 11, 2006
In eight chapters Dr. Porter deals with familiar dimensions of leadership (empowerment, integrity, mentoring) from a Biblically supported, Christian perspective. At the end of each chapter she summarizes the lessons learnt and lists questions for further reflection. My personal favorite is chapter 3 which uses the story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman at the well (John 4:5-42) to argue that identifying ourselves as created in God's image is our first step toward true empowerment. While aimed specifically at women, Leading Lessons is also an excellent resource for men. Its principal lesson: the goal of Christian leadership is essentially to lead people to a deeper relationship with God.
 
LEADING BY DESIGN  Jul 12, 2005
Leading Lessons places the reader on a historical and spiritual journey that forces the reader to discover not just one but the various roles she plays as a transformative leader. Rather than subjugate the reader to a single "leadership type/leadership style", the reader begins to see dimensions of herself in each of the prototypes presented. Armed with this new perspective, the reader can begin to craft an action plan that emerges from her spirit, her particular talents, passions, and interests rather than having such forged upon her through an assessment process that is designed to pigeon-hole and which often causes one to miss their true calling.

I highly recommend this reading for anyone that is serious about their journey to wholeness, leadership through service, and evolving their God-given, God-designed skills to the next level of productivity.
 
Leading Lessons lead the Way  Jun 18, 2005

Leading Lessons is a great book for all women in leadership positions or those aspiring to leadership positions. The book is exceptionally valueable to Chrisitan women who frequently encounter"boundary issues" in the business world.
I commend Dr. Porter for sharing not only her insights on biblical women of leadership but foremost for providing concrete biblical doumentation.
 
Inspiring Lessons to Help Cultivate the Leader in YOU!  Jun 14, 2005
LEADING LESSONS: Insights On Leadership From Women of the Bible
supports its title and subtitle excellently! Page by page the reader will be guided into great insights on different women leaders found in the pages of Scripture with personal stories interspersed by the author Jeanne Porter, and how we (the reader) can glean the insight from the way GOD used their lives and their giftings to help lead others. Leadership is equally an art, science and a calling. When one leads with insight, passion, clarity of purpose, wisdom, conviction and vision one cannot and will not fail. This is the book (along with the Bible) that will be your compass.


Leading Lessons is invaluable. Every woman is a leader. Leading Lessons will empower you to lead well and with the power of GOD.

Perfect for Bible studies, small groups, workshops, organizational meetings, gatherings, women's ministries and book clubs. You'll love it and be truly inspired!

RICH  May 24, 2005
I read this book in conjunction with a class entitled the same conducted by Dr. Porter. I found the book to be very interesting, thought provoking, educational and one that will propel you to action. If you are in leadership, thinking about it or know someone who is, buy (and read) the book. Dr. Porter's writings are scripture-based and she imparts real-life experiences to illuminate and validate her work. The book prompted me to return to passages and stories in the Bible that I may have only paid cursory attention to in the past. This book will beseech you to search yourself to discover all that God has for you. It is a must read for all women whether you are in the business or Christian community..... all can and will benefit from it! I plan to re-read the book and go through the exercises again now that I am not in class-mode. If you are looking to gain "lessons" on "leadership" this is the book for you! Leading Lessons is RICH in content and character.
