Leadership Pain : The Classroom for Growth (Hardcover) (Samuel R. Chand)
about this item
Do you want to be a better leader? Raise the threshold of your pain. Do you want your church to grow or your business to reach higher goals? Reluctance to face pain is your greatest limitation. There is no growth without change, no change without loss, and no loss without pain. Bottom line: if you're not hurting, you're not leading.
But this book is not a theological treatise on pain. Rather in Leadership Pain Samuel Chand—best-selling author recognized as "the leader's leader"—provides a concrete, practical understanding of the pain we experience to help us interpret pain more accurately and learn the lessons God has in it for us.
Chand is ruthlessly honest and highly practical as he examines the principles and practices that make our pain a means of fulfilling God's divine purposes for our churches, communities, and us. These features are included in this leadership treasure trove:
POWERFUL, personal stories from some of the finest leaders in the world, such as Craig Groeschel, Benny Perez, Mike Kai, Lisa Bevere, Mark Chironna, Dale Bronner, Philip Wagner, Michael Pitts, and numerous others
REVEALING INSIGHTS into the growth that occurs through pain in leadership roles
PRACTICAL EXERCISES to help you apply the valuable principles you are learning
Dr. Samuel Chand asks ministry leaders if they perceive life's struggles to be a prison or a classroom? If a prison then life's most important lessons are missed as we seek an escape from them. Leadership Pain was written to help readers identify their challenges and develop strategies to move forward, and grow as a result of pain rather that view it as a setback.
Though many church leaders feel the pressure to project a Disney family image, be a fantastic teacher and an outstanding leader, they live in a dark world between the false self they project and the shadow of hidden motives. In Leadership Pain, Chand guides the reader to practical, effective habits that will help move leaders from the prison of struggle to the classroom of growth.
