McKenna believes it takes courage to answer the question of why we lead

Only 11 left in stock (more on the way). McKenna believes it takes courage to answer the question of why we lead. The honest answer may raise personal "insecurities that cause us to project something we are no. It is likely that the real answer will not be the first one that comes to mind. With successful leadership comes the possibility of having more to protect and therefore more to lose. It is this risk of distraction that can draw us away from our true calling.

16, 2015, Bishop Robert McKenna died. McKenna also published a heretical article in which he attempted to re-define the dogma Outside The Church There Is No Salvation. He was 88 years old. We had some familiarity and correspondence with McKenna over the years. Although he was a validly consecrated bishop who said some true things and held some true positions, McKenna was (quite sadly) definitely not a Catholic. He denied the dogma Outside The Church There Is No Salvation. McKenna said the dogma only applies to those knowingly outside the Church, which is patently untrue and heretical.

Praise for Dying to Lead "Every Christian who is in a position of leadership needs to read this book! Rob McKenna is a stellar researcher who has the unusual knack of being able to communicate his findings in ways that are not only understandable, but engaging and motivating. In my opinion, you run the risk of being dead in the water if you don't read Dying to Lead." -Les Parrott, Ph.D., Founder of RealRelationships.com and Author of Trading Places "The heart felt cry of every Christian leader I know is to somehow move their organization to a level of excellence on a scale that can only be measured in a kingdom scale and economy. Rob McKenna's work provides important language and thinking which advances leadership in new and important ways." -Steven G.W. Moore, Executive Director, The M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust Leaders are visionaries. Leaders are servants. Leaders create results. And says, Rob McKenna, leaders sacrifice. Far too often, sacrifice is missing from our thinking. This book - with its emphasis upon real-life vignettes, biblical insight and personal reflection - redirects us back to the center of true Christian leadership. -Alec Hill, President, Intervarsity Christian Fellowship "I'll say right now that I was deeply moved from reading Dying to Lead, and that I've never read anything quite like it. It is written from the heart, and is both challenging to managers and practical at the same time. Dying to Lead is an important book for managers." -Susan Arnold, Manager, Starbucks Coffee Company Dr. Robert McKenna is Chair of the Department of Industrial/Organizational Psychology at Seattle Pacific University and President of McKenna & Associates. His mission is building character, competence, and calling in today's emerging leaders. He lives in Kirkland, Washington with his wife Jackie and their sons, Aidan and Ryan.

Delirium
“Dying to Lead” quickly captured my total attention from page one. I decided I wanted to go through this slowly in order to digest it, so I have been using it as my daily devotional, taking one chapter per day. It has made me think about leadership in a completely different light. I appreciate McKenna's depth of insight as well as the challenge of reflecting upon and working through the questions he poses throughout as well as at the end of each section.

No matter your worldview or your questions about what faith has to do with leadership, Dying To Lead asks you to consider profound questions about why and how you choose to exercise leadership. What is leadership? When I strive to exercise leadership, how can I rise above my own ego and let purpose drive my actions? How can I "throw myself under the bus?" and put others, and the challenges at hand, at the forefront of my intentions? How can cultivate important leadership attributes such as courage, humility, and self-awareness? How can I enhance my effectiveness by embracing my inner "dorkiness"? These are important questions to explore, and Dr. McKenna's engaging style makes the exploration a treat.

A refreshing approach to leadership that is truly changing the way I lead. What an example to follow - Jesus himself.

Dr. McKenna does a great job of writing and telling stories. I believe that he has what it takes to be a great leader and that if people pick up this book they will be happy with what it has to say.

If you read the word 'leadership' in the title and groaned, 'not another book on leadership,' reconsider. This is not your typical 'how to do leadership' book. McKenna, professor of Industrial and Organizational Psychology at Seattle Pacific University, states his goal in writing the book: to challenge the leader (and here he includes business, church, community and parenting) to courageously answer the questions of why. He also states his intention to fail in certain areas, to fail to be another 'how to' book and to give the reader God's particular direction. Instead he challenges the reader to consider the areas in leadership in which we get in our own way, the internal things that cause us to lead on your own terms and agenda.

McKenna believes it takes courage to answer the question of why we lead. The honest answer may raise personal "insecurities that cause us to project something we are not." It is likely that the real answer will not be the first one that comes to mind. With successful leadership comes the possibility of having more to protect and therefore more to lose. It is this risk of distraction that can draw us away from our true calling. Dying to lead basically means daily considering the selfish aspects of who we are that need to die (or in spiritual terms, be laid at the cross) before we can lead authentically and honestly before God.

From the question of why do we lead, the author tackles the many questions of identity, perspective and action. Are outcomes the primary motivation for the leader? What does sacrificial leadership look like? Why does God choose leaders that we may not? What about control and choice? Can a leader be vulnerable? Can a reluctant leader be a leader? What competencies will never find there way into a help wanted ad? The book concludes with a list of twenty-three characteristics of sacrificial leadership for the reader and a peer to review together. For a relatively slim book, the material covered is broad. It will leave you thinking long after you have finished reading.

The organization of "Dying to Lead" is adaptable for solitary meditation or for group discussion. Each short chapter begins with a brief light hearted comment or dialogue about the focus of the chapter followed by a short Scripture passage and then text. Each ends with questions for reflection, ideas to put into practice and possible journaling questions that will take longer thought. This book is an excellent resource for pastors and pastoral teams, church boards, Christians in the marketplace and other small groups. If you want to receive the full benefit of the author's ideas, this is not a book to skim through or read in one sitting. If you want to be challenged and changed, take your time.

My initial motivation for reading this book was because I work with Dr. Rob McKenna, but after reading it I have since recommended it to all of my college and young adult age friends because of the profound impact it has had on me.

Although I do not see myself as a leader, the book challenged me to look into WHO I am and reflect on my past experiences in relation to how I work and relate to others; and furthermore be intentional about the leader I want to BECOME. Through reading this book I realized not only the impact I have on others, but also the significant impact leaders have had on me, realizing that the majority of leaders in my life have been negative and being challenged to learn from those experiences.

In Dying to Lead, Dr. McKenna is vulnerable, honest, and encouraging, while providing insight into his own leadership journey and positively challenging the reader along the way.

Rob McKenna writes a strong book here -- I found the text intelligently written and easy to understand. Leaders of all backgrounds will find wonderful nuggets of wisdom and knowledge in this text. I sincerely recommend it for those on a journey through the mire of leadership, and will find Dr. McKenna's voice on leadership not only comforting, but also charismatic. Dr. McKenna is a broad thinker, and his commentaries on leadership reflect his vision, and more importantly how such vision can be applied within organizational settings.

-Dr. William Marelich, Associate Professor of Psychology, CSU Fullerton

This book was more of an affirmation, than a challenge. It's easy to read and easier to be inspired by the principles that lie within the covers. The text draws attention to eternal motivation and the benefits of sincerely caring for those who we lead. Sound scripture support and novel points of view connect the spiritual to the menial tasks of leading. This would make a great gift for a new leader, struggling with focus.
