The nurture and care provided to potential leaders during the early years of their development are crucial to ensuring they become healthy and mature leaders of the future.
In Leading from the In-Between, John demonstrates the principle as he draws on his many years working with emerging leaders and shares his poignant insights into successful leadership development. He shares how he systematically built into the lives of these younger leaders the mindset and skills that eventually nurtured them into strong, well-rooted "oaks." The depth of his understanding is evident throughout the book. His invaluable experience with both younger and seasoned leaders is brilliantly captured in his insights, which he compares to a bridge that will help others avoid the pitfalls and celebrate the prizes to be won as we equip future leaders for their maximum impact and success.
John's faith story is equally part of the interlacing that underscores the importance of each individual's relationship to leadership and spiritual formation. His concept of "cadence," which invites emerging leaders to "be in step with wisdom," is refreshing.
