The world has been rocked by the number of prominent leaders, in virtually every discipline, who have been compromised by moral, ethical, and theological failures. This pace-setting volume addresses this alarming problem and offers leaders valuable guidance in dealing with the inherent risks of their work.
Using historic and current examples, the authors describe the characteristics of five types of leaders and the problems that are most likely to develop if their particular dysfunctions develop unrestrained. Rima and McIntosh offer a series of steps for leaders to consider so they can take control of their dark side and learn to harness its creative powers. This edition includes a new introduction, updated information throughout, a self-assessment tool, and other additional material. Includes endorsements from John Maxwell, Leighton Ford, Leith Anderson, and Rob Angel.
