There are a zillion books and blogs on leadership. Many are more about management than leadership. Many are more about the status quo than leading. One exception of Tribes by Seth Godin.

I've been listening to the audio version as I work out - it's a good read/listen. If you're looking for details on change leadership - look elsewhere. Godin challenges his reader/listener to accept full responsibility for becoming a tribal leader of principled and productive agents of positive change. "No one gives you permission or approval or a permit to lead, You can just do it. The only one who can say no is you."

I can spare the readers some time and money: consider taking your lead from Jesus Christ who is our life!!!

Here is an idea: in 2009 - Let's re-instate Jesus as the Head of His Church - or at least act like we believe it.

This might require more prayer time than read time. Who is the Good Shepherd anyways? I know jobs are tight, but let's quit trying to cut His grass.

Non-apologetic rant . . . as the body is in trouble from trying to live FOR Jesus rather than FROM Him. For those who are desperate to lead something - Bay Street is looking for an endless string of CEO's.
