Item Description...
Overview
Allender discusses what makes flawed leaders so successful. He asserts that God chooses leaders who arent deceived by the myths of power and control, but who realize that God s power is found in brokenness.

Publishers Description
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Finding strength in weakness  Jul 19, 2008
Sometimes I find those this site "recommendations" annoying. For example, click on a book about African animals and your recommendations fill up with similar titles. Arrrgh. But sometimes, sometimes those recommendations include a gem such as "Leading with a Limp," which this site recommended when I bought another book. The title was intriguing. So was the subtitle: "Take full advantage of your most powerful weakness." Turns out the book is about leadership, but I found it just as applicable to living life in general. Based on Biblical leadership examples, this book benefits even those who don't "believe." In fact, it's one of the best books I've read and I'm recommending it to many, many friends.
 
Comforting. healing. profound  Jun 15, 2008
This is such an honest, helpful book.

It is more accurate and truthful to the reality of leading than other's I've read, and I've read many. Dan's ideas are paradoxical in the best sense.

I bought it the other day on a whim in Barnes & Noble, after reading a bit of it standing up at a shelf. Today is Father's Day, and I enjoyed two hours reading it this afternoon, on "my day" when I can do pretty much anything I want. A gentle page turner. I'm smiling as I write this review.
 
"It is through leading that I've known the greatest need for a deep, personal, and abiding relationship with Jesus."  Jan 15, 2008

Leading is never easy--whether it is in business, family, or church. Leading can be a thankless job, and the chances are someone is going to angry with you and might even hate you. "It is through leading that I've known the greatest need for a deep, personal, and abiding relationship with Jesus."
To be an effective leader we must face our weaknesses and not hide them. Allowing our weakness to show will bring respect among those you lead. Acknowledging our weaknesses allows us to utilize the gifts/tools God has given us. We can learn to allow others to use their talents by delegating and working closely with others. God uses the most unlikely. The best leaders seem to be the ones that flee from the call to leadership and then submit to God's will by returning to follow the call. For those are the leaders that are not after personal gain but are God-centered.
Dan Allender points that God calls all followers to lead. The capacity in which you lead will vary from another's. A mother leads her children. A Pastor leads his congregation. "Every leader must count the cost of leadership, and the cost includes six realities: crisis, complexity, betrayal, loneliness, weariness, and glory." Serving God makes it all worth it.
Leading With A Limp by Dan B. Allender, PHD is written in simple, easy- to- understand terms. He approaches leadership from a stance I had never heard before. His ideas make sense. This book came to me at just the right moment. I was facing a leadership position that I knew would be very difficult. With the information present in Leading With A Limp, I pray that I can be an effective leader and serve God. I think all leaders ,whether in business, family or church, will benefit from Leading With A Limp.
