Everyone is a leader somewhere. Parents. Teachers. Entrepreneurs. Executives. Coaches. Pastors.
Here’s the truth: Most of us lead in an inhospitable setting at some time in our lives. The finest corporation experiences challenging periods during the normal ups and downs of organizational life cycles. The most profitable small business must survive seasons facing economic headwinds. The healthiest family suffers times of turbulence. The winningest coach must lead teams with less talent than needed to win during some seasons. The finest teachers have to practice their craft in less-than-favorable learning environments at some point.
Let’s face it: The whole world can feel a little inhospitable at times, and that’s okay. We can create the conditions for good and great things to happen at any time, in any place.
Successful leaders today don’t dictate; they invite. They don’t dismiss; they welcome. They don’t neglect; they care. Now more than ever, we must pay attention to the soft side of leadership if we want hard results. As leaders – from parents to CEOs – we must learn gracious leadership to truly, positively change our spheres of influence.
In this passionate, powerful audiobook, Pastor and leadership mentor Terry Smith fleshes out five vital principles you need to become a hospitable leader. He shows that this type of leadership is not superficial niceness or allowing people to do whatever they want. Hospitable leadership is result-oriented because it’s motivated by genuine love. It’s how you create environments where people and dreams can thrive, where vision turns to action, and where great things happen regularly. Here is everything you need to become the type of leader people want to follow.
