Publisher Description

Weakness: Don't lead without it.  Pick up most leadership books and you'll 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 don't 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 they're 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.

Leading With a Limp

This is a book for everyone, not just those who consider themselves leaders. I wish it had a different title. Everyone who has that nagging feeling that there's something more to being a friend, a parent, a child, a child of God, a person of Faith, a spouse, a boss, a church member, or just that we're meant for something more than what we're living, must read this book. Allender rips the crusty old smiley-faced facade from our buddy-Jesus Christianity, but he does so with gentleness, grace, humor, kindness and great wisdom. He spoke directly to my heart. What he reveals beneath the tired old mask though, is beautiful, disturbing, stirring, and cause for great hope and joy. This is a call to come alive, to enter the real life adventure we know we're all made for, to discover a wild and scandalous Love that is greater, bolder, and more alive than we ever could have hoped. In this book, Allender invites us to be real and face the things of which we are most afraid and ashamed, and in doing so, to discover a strength that is not of this world. Not since "The Screwtape Letters" by CS Lewis have I read a book that spoke so directly to my heart, that stirred me so deeply. And hearing Dan read it is that much more of a treat. Delightful. Stirring. A breath of cool fresh air in a musty old cave. Thank you. Nathan Mustain
