The Leadership Secrets of Jesus by Mike Murdock

At the Philippine Book Fair last year, I picked up this book published by Lighthouse Books. I finally got to read it and I highly recommend it to people who find themselves occupying positions of leadership and are ready to learn from the Leader of All.

Each chapter is short and easy to read. A chapter focuses on a key trait of Jesus that makes Him the Ultimate Leader. Most of the things discussed in the book are Bible-based — instances taken from Jesus’ life to illustrate the things that we must do as leaders.

Most of the content is practical and I like the writing style of the author as you feel that he is personally talking to you about your concerns and problems. Each chapter likewise contains a prayer and some guide questions focusing on the key trait being discussed. Reflecting on the prayer and on the questions should help the reader resolve or think through certain issues that he or she may be facing as a leader.

The book is inspiring and comforting. Just as a sample, what were some of Jesus’ leadership secrets? That He took the time to rest. That He knew His worth. These and other such lessons are shared by the author in a very engaging way so if you have the time, it would be a good idea to get hold of this book and read it.
