Next Generation Leader by Andy Stanley

This is the Andy Stanley book that everyone in leadership needs to read. I've been hit-or-miss with Andy Stanley's work. I was beginning to think there wasn't much I could connect with from him and then I read Next Generation Leader.

Stanley provides 5 essentials for anyone in a leadership position or who desires to lead:

Competence (do less, accomplish more)

Notice he follows the well-played pastoral approach to having them all begin with the same letter.

Each "essential" comes with 3 chapters that help define the idea. This is a very quick read that happened across my desk at the best possible time. I sunk my teeth into this book and felt like a sponge. Most, if not all, of these points have been talked about and lectured on over the years; nothing really new to absorb here but there was something about how Stanley presented these "C"'s and provided practical application in any setting.

This is a terrific book.

This book was provided for review, at no cost, by WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing.
