Blanchard and Hodges explore Jesus' leadership model to apply it to all walks of life in the 21st century. They observe that all of us are called to leadership in some aspect of our lives whether at school, home, office, or wherever two or more gather. Their book develops the four domains necessary to be a servant leader after the manner of our Servant Lord. Those domains are as follows:
- Heart--What motivates you as a leader? What are your intentions and what is your character?
- Head--What are your beliefs about leading and motivating people?
- Hands--Do you set goals and measure performance for yourself and lead by example?
- Habits--How do you improve your leadership skills and renew yourself as a leader?
This is an uplifting book for our uncertain and fearful times. Blanchard and Hodges believe that a key to leading like Jesus is to be a "bearer of hope." They note how many times Jesus says directly or indirectly in the Gospels, "Fear not!" (Over 300 times!) His followers and servant leaders are to be bearers of hope. The authors declare, "The level of hope you will be able to bring to others will be in direct proportion to the level of your own trust in its source."
Let us lead like Jesus! Let us follow our Servant Lord!
