Item Description...
Overview
Based on his extensive experience as coach and mentor to many thousands of Christian leaders across a broad spectrum of ministry settings, Reggie McNeal helps spiritual leaders understand that they will self-select into or out of greatness. In this important book, McNeal shows how great spiritual leaders are committed consciously and intentionally to seven spiritual disciplines, habits of heart and mind that shape both their character and competence:


The discipline of self-awareness?the single most important body of information a leader possesses



The discipline of self-management?handling difficult emotions, expectations, temptations, mental vibrancy, and physical well-being



The discipline of self-development?a life-long commitment to learning and growing and building on one's strengths



The discipline of mission?enjoying the permissions of maintaining the sense of God's purpose for your life and leadership



The discipline of decision-making?knowing the elements of good decisions and learning from failure



The discipline of belonging?the determination to nurture relationships and to live in community with others, including family, followers, mentors, and friends



The discipline of aloneness?the intentional practice of soul-making solitude and contemplation

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good ministry tool  Feb 6, 2007
Better than your average Christian leadership book. It's neither so business-minded as to make you wonder where God is in all this, nor is it so spiritual that it neglects practical application. It challenges you to examine yourself through the Word of God and develop healthy relationships - which are often lacking most in church circles.
 
Excellent  Jan 11, 2007
This is a great book, and a must read for those looking to better themselves in the areas of leadership and life.
 
A quick read...  Nov 27, 2006
Practicing Greatness is a quick read that will challenge the ministry-weary practitioner. While there are some sound principles, it's better as an introductory read for emerging spiritual leaders. It would have been nice to have more in-depth, scripturally inspired examples. Nonetheless it is a worthwhile read.
 
Great Leadership Book  Nov 9, 2006
One of the best leadership books I have read. Deals more with the person than with the tasks of leadership. Would be a great book for a group of leaders to read together and discuss.
 
An ESSENTIAL Contribution to Authentic Leadership  Oct 3, 2006
If the intention of Dr. McNeal was to cause the reader of this book to reflect and evaluate his/her life inwardly and to feel compelled to advance in the disciplines elaborated in this book, then, he succeeded in my case.

I feel that the author has written with wisdom and maturity on a critically important facet of leadership, especially "spiritual" leadership. The disciplines of "self" outlined in this book have been overlooked for too long, making this work much needed and timely for those who realize that today's leadership is in need of reformation. McNeal makes his case with both positive and negative examples in each chapter, writing from his vast experience, and with a sense of having developed these disciplines in his own life.

If you are a leader, or an aspiring leader, please make this book a priority to read. It will certainly make a great contribution to your thinking, and to the formation of "great" leadership in your life. In my opinion, these disciplines are not optional, they are ESSENTIAL.

This is definitely an excellent treatment of the greatest leadership challenge you will ever face - leading your self! Let's face it, you will only be successful at leading others to the degree that you have learned to lead your self.
