15 Leaders Fighting for Our Cities, Our Poor, Our Youth and Our Culture. Are we living in challenging times? Yes. But people can and do make a difference.
Here are the stories of fifteen entrepreneurial leaders doing just that. Drawn from church, business, government and non-profit sectors, these world-class visionaries and activists offer examples that motivate and principles to imitate.
Their stories show that mature networks of leaders and organizations can offer opportunities to a new generation of young people, change communities ravaged by HIV/AIDS, reach new groups of people with the message of hope--and more. If you see a need and want to contribute your own consequential leadership, this book is for you.
"Great leaders are as interested in significance as they are in success. In Consequential Leadership, Mac Pier profiles fifteen leaders we all want to emulate--great names including W. Wilson Goode Sr., Frances Hesselbein, Luis Palau and Richard Stearns. All are servant leaders whose lives are committed to giving back, locally as well as globally. They are activists, preachers and CEOs. They have created foundations, planted churches, furthered the cause of peace and improved the lives of thousands of people. Read this book--it will inspire you to open your world and become a leader of consequence." â€”Ken Blanchard, coauthor of The One Minute ManagerÂ® and Great Leaders Grow
"In Consequential Leadership, Mac Pier has done us a great service by bringing forth the stories of great entrepreneurs who have crossed over from politics, business and other fields to form a vanguard that may yet bring us back from what the ever-wise David Brooks calls 'a crisis of legitimacy.' These tales are a call to action for all of us." â€”From the foreword by Bob Buford, author of Halftime
