The book was written to teach biblically-based leadership skills to leaders that have been called and chosen in their church to reclaim America's Christian heritage. This book is also applicable to all leadership positions in general. The book's purpose is to develop spiritual leaders for use in God's kingdom. The first part of the book teaches the biblical skills a leader must possess in order to develop the Christian walk, commune, fellowship, and to hear God speak. God is the true leader. After God speaks, the leader executes God's battle plan. The following chapters of the book discuss the sacrifices a leader must endure and the price to be paid in the leadership role. This allows the prospective leader to count the cost of leadership before making the final decision to follow God's plan. The remainder of the book teaches the biblical principles of spiritual leadership. This book emphasizes the fact that the spiritual leader must operate in revelation knowledge. Terry Redmon is a retired electrical engineer who is experienced in technical writing. He graduated from a two-year Bible school. He is co-founder of a ministry to reclaim America's Christian heritage. He has been intensely involved in getting the Bible curriculum back into the public school systems. He and his wife were the "salt and light," recipients at the Reclaiming America for Christ Conference in 2003. The author has taught a number of workshops on reclaiming America's Christian heritage. He has appeared on The 700 Club, the Canadian Broadcasting Company, and the four TV stations in Nashville. He has been interview by a number of newspapers, including The Nashville Tennessean, Wilson county Democrat, and others. He has also appeared on all of the major radio stations in the area.

How should we see the Spirit at work in spiritual leaders today? How did the Spirit work through spiritual leaders in the Bible? While many books on spiritual leadership look at the culture around us and offer sound advice from biblical principles, this study asks Scripture first what the Spirit did through spiritual leaders in the Bible in order to figure out what the Spirit should be doing through spiritual leaders today.

"Working with Margaret Benefiel has helped me, in a short time, become grounded in Spirit in my corporate workplace. The power and productivity of this spiritual work gives me hope that leaders can encourage people to bring their whole selves into the workplace and that this will lead to more tangible and positive organizational results."--Kerry Hamilton Senior Vice President, Director of Marketing, BJ's Wholesale Clubs In the last ten years, dozens of books about spirituality and management have demonstrated the yearning for spirituality in the workplace that exists in people like Kerry Hamilton. No longer content to abide the widening chasm between their deeply-held values and the all-too-common business practices they encounter, these readers long for congruence between their values and their work. They wonder whether the days of the giants of corporate character like Johnson & Johnson, businesses who believed that integrity and profitability could co-exist, are gone for good. Are we living in a state of business and organizational entropy? Are we doomed to endless repetition of the Enron, Worldcom, and Global Crossing scandals? Must integrity and profitability now be opposed? What has happened to American business, healthcare, and non-profits in the last forty years? Soul at Work: Spiritual Leadership in Organizations demonstrates vividly that another way is possible, based on the contemporary restoration of the partnership between integrity and profitability. Soul at Work translates the core of what companies like Johnson and Johnson stood for forty years ago into contemporary forms. Soul at Work shows, through compelling stories of contemporary businesses, healthcare organizations, and nonprofits, how integrity, profitability, and personal and organizational transformation are all of a piece.

View: 3296

Maximizing the Triple Bottom Line through Spiritual Leadership draws on the emerging fields of workplace spirituality and spiritual leadership to teach leaders and their constituencies how to develop business models that address issues of ethical leadership, employee well-being, sustainability, and social responsibility without sacrificing profitability, growth, and other metrics of performance excellence. While this text identifies and discusses the characteristics necessary to be a leader, its major focus is on leadership—engaging stakeholders and enabling groups of people to work together in the most meaningful ways. The authors offer real-world examples of for-profit and non-profit organizations that have spiritual leaders and which have implemented organizational spiritual leadership. These cases are based on over ten years of research, supported by the International Institute of Spiritual Leadership, that demonstrates the value of the Spiritual Leadership Balanced Scorecard Business Model presented in the book. "Pracademic" in its orientation, the book presents a general process and tools for implementing the model.
