The Leadership Journey Podcast (21): Ian Parkinson (part 2)

ian-parkinson

Ian Parkinson from CPAS is back in this week’s episode and shares his wisdom on some important aspects of the leader’s task. He discusses the concept of culture in a church or organisation, as well as the process of leading change, drawing from some interesting concepts in the work of William Bridges. He also talks about mentoring and gives us a list of five recommended books.

The first three are written from a specifically Christian perspective:

  1. Growing Leaders (James Lawrence)
  2. The Undefended Leader (Simon Walker)
  3. Relational Leadership (Walter Wright)

There are two more general books:

  1. Leaders (Bennis and Nanus)
  2. The Leadership Challenge (Kouzes and Posner)

It’s only fair to mention Ian’s own Reignite: Seeing God Rekindle Life and Purpose in Your Church.
