Leadership from the Inside Out: Examining the Inner Life of a Healthy Church Leader (Google eBook)
You can serve God and his people for a lifetime and do it with passion and joy. You do not have to become another casualty in the growing number of leaders who have compromised their integrity, character, and ministry because they failed to lead an examined and accountable life. The road forward is clearly marked. Leaders must make a decision to humbly and consistently examine their inner lives and identify areas of needed change and growth. Also, wise leaders commit to listen to the voices of those who will love them enough to speak the truth and point out problems and potential pitfalls. Kevin Harney writes, “The vision of this book is to assist leaders as they discover the health, wisdom, and joy of living an examined life. It is also to give practical tools for self-examination.” Sharing stories and wisdom from his years in ministry, Harney shows you how to maintain the most powerful tool in your leadership toolbox: YOU. Your heart, so you can love well. Your mind, so you can continue to learn and grow. Your ears, your eyes, your mouth ... consider this your essential guide to conducting your own complete interior health exam, so you can spot and fix any problems, preserve the things that matter most, and grow as a source of vision, strength, and hope to others.

Review: Leadership from the Inside Out: Examining the Inner Life of a Healthy Church LeaderUser Review - Christianbook.com
I like Kevin Harney's writing style and the variety of practical ideas. I'm a leader of leaders in the church and I have used this book in three ways: personal application, with an accountability partner, and currently with a small group of women leaders. It is a book that I've revisited the last 18 months whenever I have begun to feel that I need to reexamine my inner life as a leader. The discussion questions and prayer prompters are helpful and especially work well in the group setting.
