More About Summoned to Lead by Leonard Sweet
Leadership Re-Visioned Cast a vision, set a strategy, rally the troops, and take the hill you don t need another book to rehash the well-worn principles of modern leadership. But if you re looking for something different, something that . . . approaches leadership as an art as well as a science inspires hope and expectation in those of us who aren t born leaders challenges those with leadership roles to explore new possibilities . . . then Leonard Sweet wants to help you discover a very different kind of leadership vision. It s one you hear if your ears are open, and it could summon you at any time. When you respond, the puzzle pieces of who you are will fit together into a leader others follow because you ve answered a call, not trained for a position. The church has it all wrong. It is trying to train leaders. Instead, it ought to train everyone to listen and to develop their own soundtrack. Leaders don t see a vision, says Sweet, they hear one. Sound becomes sight. Leaders hear life. For a sonogram of acoustic leadership, Sweet takes us inside the incredible account of Sir Ernest Shackleton, the celebrated polar explorer who led his entire crew of twenty-seven from disaster in the Antarctic to safety. Called the greatest leader that ever came on God s earth, bar none, Shackleton objectifies the goals of Sweet s own exploration in search of wisdom for today and tomorrow s truly compelling, voice-activated leaders. Right now, you may be leading many people or just yourself. But who knows what tomorrow or a minute from now will call forth in you. Are your ears open?"
