The Making of a Leader is arranged around the concept of producing a leadership time line. Reading through the book and reflecting on your own story and life experience culminates in producing a personal time line, a tremendous help in understanding the work of God in your own life. Since God works differently in each season, developing a time line with your coach is a great way to understand and engage God in the transitional seasons of life.

As you examine these timeless principles through examples and case studies, you'll see how the ministry of leadership flows from your "being", and how God is constantly at work developing that character throughout your life. The Making of a Leader will help you:

  • Identify those with the ability to lead
  • Develop and mature the leaders around you
  • Understand where you are your own development process
  • Coach those who are experiencing periods of transition, trial or frustration
