Four Virtues Every Leader Must Have, Or Else

Weak leaders often fail by a failure of nerve (especially by fearing to take stands at the risk of displeasing people). Joe explains what a leader should do when people are highly reactive and anxious and combustible—like a gas leak that can explode with just a spark.”
– Andy Naselli
Professor of Systematic Theology and New Testament for Bethlehem College and Seminary in Minneapolis

Who are you when the teeth come out?

For every true act of leadership, there is an equal and monstrous act of sabotage.

Our leaders have been entirely routed by the agitated and the anxious. These emotional tyrannies manifest themselves in local libraries, HR cubicles, elder meetings, and at your Thanksgiving dinners.

In this book Professor Joe Rigney seeks to recover the nerve of old that steadied leaders to make tough calls. The nerve that braces them when sabotage comes—because it will. The nerve that has more fun than its enemies.

Cheer up, there's no way out but through.
