Although leadership is the hot topic on conference agendas and book tours, most people who find themselves in positions of leadership have little or no training for the role. They simply continue to make the same old mistakes. With additional and newly updated material, this leadership classic reveals the most common errors that leaders consistently make-regardless of training or age-and the way to stop these bad habits from undermining their positive talents and accomplishments. Whether you are leading a company, a ministry, a Girl Scout troop, or your family, The Top Ten Mistakes Leaders Make is a must-read for anyone who wants to lead others effectively. "If you're like me, you've grown weary of the published cookie-cutter approaches on how to lead effectively. And so has Hans Finzel. He drills to the core of the current issues on effective leadership."? -Charles R. Swindoll, author and president of Dallas Theological Seminary "This is one of the most practical books on leadership I have in my own library. If you are serious about becoming a better leader, you will want to read this book."? -John C. Maxwell, author, speaker, and founder of the INJOY Group

There are many materials that have been written to train leaders but I have not seen any that tells you what to do when your leader makes mistake. No wonder, most subordinates are destroyed for lack of knowledge. I guess our teachers assumed that leaders don’t make mistakes. After all, they are full of the Holy Spirit and the presence of God is with them. But even in the Bible there are many leaders who made mistakes. Anyhow, we can’t blame our teachers. They were the same leaders. And in fairness, they could not be preparing to make mistakes. However, there are several great potentials that have been destroyed for lack of knowledge. Some are in redeemable situations and I trust God to use this small book to pull them back to the track. In essence therefore, the main focus of this book is to show you what to do when leaders make mistake.

Micklyn Lightbourne is passionate, dedicated and committed to seeing individuals get to where God has predestined them to go in their lives, hence he was motivated to write this book to encourage and help to focus the minds and hearts of individuals reminding them that time is too precious to waste, and if they have not wasted time already hopefully they will never have a desire to waste time in the future. Where you are now, is where you and I should be, there are a lot of individuals who should be further along in their lives in terms of accomplishments. He is one of them and thats why he was moving at record speed to make the most of the time he has left and encourages us all to do the same; He call it Spirit Time Acceleration. In April of 2011 Mr. Lightbourne resigned from his job as the most prestigious Butler in The Bahamas at a five star world class resort. He was on top of his A game winning the highest honor in the hospitality industry but he was also at the crossroads of life and the decision was which direction should he take now? Should he ride the wave of fame or should he move on to the next chapter of his life? He and his wife made the decision to start their very own hospitality business. Since making such a decision God has been opening doors they never thought were even there to be opened. God has brought out some gifts in me I never knew existed but all this happened when I found out the truth, the truth of knowing I was placed here with and for a purpose said Mr. Lightbourne. We can begin pursuing our purpose right now and if we need guidance, by reading this book we will get there. The writing of this book could no longer be prolonged because its intension is to help others put their lives in prospective. We have wasted a lot of Gods time and its time to redeem it. This book was written with the intention to convict people to hold themselves accountable and responsible for their own actions and short comings. To show how we can better our lives through daily soft skills and life skills practices and become productive leaders in our families, the work place, schools, the community and at church. We would never have to blame others for our short comings again. Once any individual comes to the realization that they are accountable for their own actions they would begin to see life differently. We have allowed time to overtake us and it has left us so far behind that we are now battling to get our lives where it should have been years ago. This book is centered around, getting the individual back to the foundation of their lives, to see themselves in control of their own destiny while fighting off the biggest enemy trying to stop them which is themselves, we must get out of our own way. Our Heavenly Father wants us to take our rightful positions on the earth and be good contributors and stewards. If we cant be good stewards over ourselves how can we be stewards over this awesome Earth. In the book of (Romans 8:22-24) (NIV) it reads We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so but we ourselves, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we are saved. We have this awesome responsibility to take dominion over the earth but first things first, these nine steps to perfect a better you is an awesome start, we have to bring back the stepping stones of how to set and accomplish goals for our lives, have the right attitudes, maintain standards, be professionals, make right decisions, get along with each other, communicate, resolve conflicts and make the most of our time. I challenge you to allow this book to help transform your life through the application process because knowledge without application is useless. Mastering these steps would bring out the qualities that were lying dormant ins

Mathew Philip has done a fine job of producing a much-needed study of Christian leadership derived from the context of his own ministry experience. It is a healthy balance between Biblical investigation on the subject on one hand and practical everyday concerns and issues on the other. The topics addressed are laid out quite independently from each other and this makes for easy reading. For this reason, lecturers in Bible schools will find it especially useful. Graham Houghton, Ph.D. Cambridge, New Zealand. Recent years saw the publication of scores of books on leadership, both in Christian circles and in the secular world of politics and business. But this book fills in some gaps and will be a valuable addition to them. It is written in a style and format that is very reader-friendly. The ideas are communicated well. This book could serve as a good textbook in classes on leadership in theological institutions. Saphir Athyal, Ph.D. World Vision International, Asia Pacific Region. Rev Mathew Philip is an author, pastor and Bible teacher. He is currently involved in Christian ministry in Philadelphia, PA with his family. He graduated from Kerala University (1986) and went on to obtain B.D. (SABC, 1990). After a time of missionary ministry in North India, received M.Th. (Missiology) from South Asia Institute of Advanced Christian Studies (SAIACS, 1995), Bangalore. He served as the Dean of Students and taught Christian Mission and Leadership at the Gospel For Asia Biblical Seminary, Tiruvalla, Kerala, South India for about 13 years. With 22 years of experience in ministry and leadership, Mathew has also written several articles and the books, The Unique Christ-Dialogue in Missions, Expository Sermons in 1Thessalonians, and An Expository Study of 2Timothy.

The leadership landscape has begun to shift. Researchers have started to realize that previous conceptualizations of leadership that focus only on the positive aspects of leadership are too narrow and may represent a romantic notion of leadership. A growing body of inquiry has emerged with a focus on the darker side of leadership. Allowing for the possibility that leaders can also do harm, either intentionally or unintentionally, broadens the scope of leadership studies and serves to increase the practical implications of leadership research. This book brings together contributions by scholars from several different countries addressing topics such as narcissistic and destructive leadership, ethical leadership and leader errors.
