The Emotionally Healthy Leader
Becoming a Better Leader Starts with a Transformed Inner Life
Do you feel too overwhelmed to enjoy life, unable to sort out the demands on your time? Are you doing your best work as a leader, yet not making an impact? Have you ever felt stuck, powerless to change your environment?
In The Emotionally Healthy Leader, bestselling author Peter Scazzero shows leaders how to develop a deep, inner life with Christ, examining its profound implications for surviving stress, planning and decision making, building teams, creating healthy culture, influencing others, and much more.
The Emotionally Healthy Leader contains:
- Concise assessments for leaders and teams to measure their leadership health
- Practical, proven strategies that have been developed over a 28-year period spent both in the local church and in equipping leaders around the world
- Helpful applications of how to face your shadow, lead out of your marriage or singleness, slow down, and embrace endings for new beginnings
Going beyond simply offering a quick fix or new technique, The Emotionally Healthy Leader gets to the core, beneath-the-surface issues of uniquely Christian leadership. This book is more than just a book you will read; it is a resource you will come back to over and over again.
