Leading With a Limp :  Take Full Advantage of Your Most Powerful Weakness

   
Author: Dan B Allender 

Weakness: Don't lead without it.  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.

Review:   
"Allender, a powerful writer, has a speaking style that makes him sound loving, fatherly, and genuinely interested in helping. In a dramatic voice he says the best leaders are people who accept their imperfections and learn from their mistakes. He shares his shortcomings as a church and educational leader, as an idealist, and as a follower of Christ. Having started and managed a large educational institution, he still sounds humble and willing to learn, refreshing traits in someone with his credentials. He is a sophisticated thinker, and his distinctive and respectful way of speaking about power is captivating as he provides many insights on the human flaws of pride, arrogance, ambition, narcissism, and cowardice."
