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:
- Growing Leaders (James Lawrence)
- The Undefended Leader (Simon Walker)
- Relational Leadership (Walter Wright)
There are two more general books:
It’s only fair to mention Ian’s own Reignite: Seeing God Rekindle Life and Purpose in Your Church.
