Excellent quick read for emerging leaders of any setting
Loved this book. Listened to it while on a 4 hour flight with 2 mo old baby in tow. Was able to take notes on my phone bc I wanted to make sure I had something to go back to later! Was interesting enough and quick enough to hear in one day! Loved the idea of operating out of my strengths and that my organization-- but perhaps not myself -- needs to achieve balance. Also very much like the point that we ALL need coaching and how to go about finding one. Thank you Christian audio!

Excellent lessons on leadership
Are you a next generation leader? Stanley seems to promise that this book will help forge you on that path. This book is about the five essentials for those who will shape the future. This book is all about leadership, and not necessarily in the business culture. It can be, in Stanley's case, leading a church as an Associate Pastor. The next generation of leaders, those in their younger thirties, has, as Stanley asserts, a strong ethic to personal growth and achievement. Stanley desires to bring leadership training techniques to this younger group of leaders. In this consideration, he quips that <em>much will be expected of those that much is given to</em>. He begins by sharing his youth experiences and how he learned leadership via self-management. He writes this book, as a partial result, to give more to the next generation.

James' narration of this book carries a scent of relaxation within a business tone, demanding attention to the material while allow the listener to also sit back and absorb the material at their own pace. On the topic of pace, James' speaks at a medium rate with clear speech and inflection, permitting listeners to hear, reflect, and learn. A smooth presentation overall, James' does surprisingly well in the ability to mimic Stanley's written voice. He isn't merely reading the text, but rather performing it, if ever so slightly, so as to not distract. After all, it isn't about the voice, but the material, and James helps make this so.

Clearly written for leaders or potential leaders, this book is best geared to those wishing to lead others, or those that may already do. The best time to listen is with pen and paper in hand, given there's so much to learn. Enjoy!

Good Read for Leaders
Narrator thoughts – I can’t say much either way. He had a good voice and it was easy to understand him, but it didn’t seem like he very passionate about this topic. Overall it was fairly good and he delivered the book well.

Book thoughts – I liked many of his thoughts on leadership. His thoughts on honing in on your strengths and making sure you live out your priorities were encouraging. Today it’s so easy to get sidetracked. So easy to crave power and fame and lose what is most valuable to you in the process. Yet we aren’t super human. We can only do so much. Focusing in on your strengths and letting others take care of the rest is incredibly liberating.

On the other hand because of the spiritual journey God has taken me on, I don’t think that the church system is the primary place where God works. I’m not saying that all of us are called to leave the church, but not all of us fit into that system anymore. For me I feel God is leading me into some leadership positions that extend beyond the church system. Sometimes it seemed like that’s the only leadership position he thought a Christian could have.

So while overall I felt the book was fairly good and I was able to glean some encouragement. I would recommend this book to anyone who is going into ministry or church leadership. It will help get you started on the right track.
