The Leadersmith


June 12, 2021

In this episode, I interview the author of one of the best books I have read on leadership—EVER. I am so enamored with this book that I require it in my first class on leadership in the masters program at Charleston Southern where I am a professor.

The book is profound because Scott has done the hard work of really thinking deeply about a theology of leadership. What does the concept of a biblical steward mean in relation to leadership? This thinking has impacted my life and the lives of my students in deep and amazing ways.

This is part one of a two-part discussion.

In this episode, Scott explains the difference between a faithful steward and an owner who is entirely responsible for his own results. He explains how leaders find themselves in bondage when they own the vision. He explains what he got wrong, and he can help you think about the prerequisites for getting your leadership right.

In the next episode, Scott continues this thinking. He talks about the mission statement that every church and Christian organization in the world should use—and it changes everything. He goes on to tell us how leaders start on a path where they make moral compromises. He also discusses how to handle praise and criticism.
