I read a lot of leadership books and when I get an opportunity to read one from a new writer that I have followed for a while, I am even more excited. Although this may be an early entry from Jenni Catron into the leadership genre, it does not mean that it is one that should be overlooked. Instead, she lays a wonderful foundation that one can apply to their life and propel them into the future.
While I would love to remember where I first heard of Catron, I am not that lucky. Instead, her name was simply engraved in my brain at some point in the past and I knew this book would not disappoint. She has the intellectual knowledge and personal experience needed to be a voice of leadership wisdom.
As a Christian, I believe the best place to draw wisdom from is Scripture and Catron does this through the entire book. It is structured around pulling a word and assigning it a pillar directly from the words of Christ in Luke 10:27. These tenants are able to not only sustain, but also move a leader forward through their life.
If you have managed to find yourself in a leadership position either by choice or by necessity, you would benefit from this book. Though the concepts seem simple, they will require a lifetime to master. Even then I am not sure I will have managed to integrate them into my life as good as I would have liked.
I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review. The words written here are my own and have not been manipulated by the publisher in any manner.
