More effective leadership comes from more emotionally mature leaders

There are many things that make up a great leader. The ability to motivate, to see the big picture, to delegate. But perhaps just as important, if not more so, is the leader's emotional intelligence (EI). How we feel impacts how we lead, and how those we lead feel about themselves when they're around us affects how well they follow our leadership. In this practical book, church leadership expert Aubrey Malphurs shows church and ministry leaders how to assess, understand, and improve both their own EI and that of their followers, so that they can inspire the very best in their churches and organizations.

"Having led large organizations now for thirty years, this is the guide I wish I had had at the very beginning. I am super excited about this book getting into the hands of younger leaders just starting off on their journey to change the world. Not only will the organizations they lead go further, but everyone will be healthier at the end--and this is a very good thing."--Randy Frazee, pastor; author, The Heart of the Story and The Connecting Church 2.0

"Raising effective leaders is one of our most crucial tasks as pastors--and nurturing emotional intelligence is an often overlooked, yet essential, part of that job. Read this book first for your own growth, and then read it again with your key leaders. It will raise the leadership quotient of your church exponentially."--Nelson Searcy, founder and lead pastor, The Journey Church; founder, Church Leader Insights
