"The more I read the Bible, the more evident it becomes that everything I have ever taught or written about effective leadership over the past 25 years, Jesus did to perfection. He is simply the greatest leadership role model of all time." - Ken Blanchard

Lead Like Jesus Revisited
Effective leadership—whether on the job, in the community, at church or in the home—starts on the inside. Before you can hope to lead anyone else, you have to know who you are. Every leader must answer two critical questions:
- Whose are you going to be?
- Who are you going to be?
One deals with your relationship to Christ. The other with your life purpose.
In this newly revised classic, renowned leadership experts Ken Blanchard, Phil Hodges and Phyllis Hendry Halverson guide readers through the process of discovering how to lead like Jesus. It really could be described as the process of aligning two internal domains—the heart and the head; and two external domains—the hands and the habits. These four dimensions of leadership form the outline for this very practical and transformational book. With simple yet profound principles from the life of Jesus, and dozens of stories and leadership examples, the authors will once again show us the way effective leaders lead.
What Others Are Saying
Reviews from the Previous Edition
“One of our world’s great problems is egocentric, self-serving leadership— leaders who think people exist for their benefit, instead of vice versa. In stark contrast, Jesus modeled servant leadership, leading by example. He said, ‘I came to serve, not to be served.’ Now, two thousand years later, Jesus has over 2.1 billion followers, which makes Him the undisputed greatest leader of all time. No one else comes close! This is why you need to know how to lead like Jesus. He is the only flawless example. That’s why you should read this book!”
—Rick Warren, Author, The Purpose Driven Life Named one of “America’s Twenty-five Best Leaders” (U.S. News and World Report)
“Ever since writing Leadership by the Book with Ken Blanchard and Phil Hodges, I’ve watched them grow in their depth of understanding of what the Bible reveals about how Jesus would have us lead others. The best thinking the Lord has revealed to them, to this point, can be found in this book. If you want to be the servant leader that Jesus mandated His followers to be, then read Lead Like Jesus. It will change your life and the lives of people you are able to influence.”
