Preston Poore has spent decades in corporate America. Despite all the excellent advice he was given for growing in leadership, there was something missing: a way to bring his Christian beliefs to bear in his professional life, not just his personal life. So Preston sought his own answer to how his faith could impact his management of hundreds of employees.
What he discovered was this: the first step wasn't adjusting his leadership style. Instead, he needed to let God change him before he could effect real change in his workplace. And in order to model discipleship to his team, he needed to first be discipled by the Spirit. Here, in the day-to-day practice of being a disciple of Jesus Christ, Poore found where his faith and exceptional leadership intersect.
"You have the potential to be a difference-maker in today’s chaotic, leadership-starved world. But to see positive change in others, you must first allow yourself to be changed. In Discipled Leader, Preston Poore connects a Christian leader’s need for personal discipleship to their leadership calling. This inspiring and practical book, written by a man who’s been in the trenches of both life and leadership, will guide you toward better leadership by way of better discipleship." —Chris Robinson, executive vice president of The John Maxwell Team
"Preston Poore has learned through life experience that leadership truly flows from who we are, not from what we do. In Discipled Leader, Preston provides the rationale and tools to help leaders develop a strong, Christ-centered foundation for unimpeachable character and lasting influence." —Angie Ward, assistant director of the doctor of ministry program at Denver Seminary
