How do I prepare tomorrow's leaders for the challenges of leadership? Everywhere you turn, the "leadership" question is being asked with ever-greater manic energy: Where will they come from? How do we reach this generation? I'm out of ideas on how to develop them any faster...what should I do? Here's an approach you might consider... Listen to them. Leadership Stories from Tomorrow offers you a rare, one-of-a-kind glimpse into the minds and hearts of emerging leaders that have long eluded you. Their ideas, frustrations, beliefs, desires, resentments, and aspirations fills the pages of this book, and you're given the raw, unfiltered perspectives of tomorrow's leaders. In this foray into the inner sanctums of where emerging leaders reside, you will have a direct encounter with the provocative, edgy, and beautiful leadership postures of the generation of leaders waiting in the wings to take their place in the world. They will tell you most of what you need to know in order to gain their trust, train their minds, mentor their experience, challenge their assumptions, shape their viewpoints, and honor their hopes and anxieties, their theologies and desires. Once you read this book, your views on leadership will never be the same. And you will realize that the question "Are they ready?" isn't nearly as vital as the more fundamental question... Are you ready? Thomas Ryan earned his Master's of Divinity from Mars Hill Graduate School (Seattle, WA).
