Publisher Description

Are you hungry to help others through leadership but don't feel like you have the authority?

One of the greatest myths of leadership is that you must be in charge in order to lead. Great leaders don't buy it. Great leaders--whether they have the official authority or not--learn how to be an influential presence wherever they are.

In How to Lead When You're Not in Charge, author and pastor Clay Scroggins explains the nature of leadership and what's needed to be a great leader--even when you answer to someone else.

Drawing from biblical principles and his experience as the lead pastor of Buckhead Church in Atlanta, Georgia, Clay will help you nurture your vision and cultivate influence with integrity and confidence, even when you lack authority in your organization or ministry.

In this book, Clay will walk you through the challenge of leadership and the four basic behaviors all great leaders have and how to cultivate them:
Leading yourselfChoosing positivityThinking criticallyRejecting passivity
With practical wisdom and humor, Clay Scroggins will help you free yourself to become the great leader you want to be so you can make a difference. Even when you're not in charge.

The Right Book for the Target

Clay clearly states who his audience is, and hits that demographic perfectly.

This is not for the apologist, theologian, or most likely those older than 60. It is however for any who want to gain a proper perspective on the formation of a leadership mindset.

Full of wisdom

This book was relatable yet had nuggets of wisdom that are essential for any workplace. I have learn a lot and I’m able to apply it.

UnivacAtom ,

Derivative and Unfocused

A rambling derivation of leadership philosophy clumsily tied to Religious beliefs; written in the style of Youth Ministry.

Two stars; I was able to listen to the entire audiobook.
