Abstract:

Leading Christians shouldn't be this hard! Or so it seems. Christian leadership is often likened to the biblical image of a shepherd leading sheep. But sheep tend to wander toward trouble. And some shepherds don't handle leadership challenges with grace and humility; much less perceive them as growth opportunities. The Painful Side of Leadership will encourage and equip you to better manage painful ministry relationships, circumstances, and choices. Jeff Iorg, a seasoned leader (church planter, pastor, and denominational executive) writes candidly about what it feels like to be beaten up by mistakes, misjudged by critics, and lonely after unpopular decisions. He frames his experience in a biblical context of why painful things happen to leaders and the hope God provides in the midst of leadership pain. Leading Christians can be painful. That's no reason to quit your post! Here's help to lead on-- even when you're on the painful side of leadership. - from book blurb.
