Leading with a Limp: Take Full Advantage of Your Most Powerful Weaknessby Dan B Allender
Synopses & Reviews
Put your flawed foot forward.
Pick up most leadership books and you' ll find strategies for leveraging your power and minimizing your areas of weakness. But think about the leaders whose names have gone down in history. Most of them were so messed up that, if they were looking for work today, no executive placement service would give them the time of day.
God' s criteria for choosing leaders runs counter to the conventional wisdom. Our culture equates strength with effectiveness, but God favors leaders who know the value of brokenness.
In Leading With a Limp, you' ll discover what makes flawed leaders so successful. They' re not preoccupied with protecting their image, they are undaunted by chaos and complexity, they are ready to risk failure in moving an organization from what is to what should be. God chooses leaders who aren' t deceived by the myths of power and control, but who realize that God' s power is found in brokenness.
If you are a leader- or if you have been making excuses to avoid leading- find out how you can take full advantage of your weakness. A limping leader is the person God uses to accomplish amazing things.

Put your flawed foot forward.
Pick up most leadership books and youll find strategies for leveraging your power and minimizing your areas of weakness. But rather than work against your weakness, why not draw from a deeper well of strength? God favors leaders who make the most of the power that comes from brokenness.
Go ahead and take full advantage of your flaws. The most effective leaders dont rise to power in spite of their weakness; they lead with power because of their weakness. It is their authenticity in limping leadership that compels others to follow them. Flawed leaders are successful because theyre not preoccupied with protecting their image. They are undaunted by chaos and complexity. And they are ready to risk failure in moving an organization from what is to what should be.
If you are a leader-or if you have been making excuses to avoid leading-find out how to get the most from your weakness. A limping leader is the kind of person God uses to accomplish amazing things.
