The Mythical Leader, The Seven Myths of Leadership
January 20, 2020
Hosted by Tom Crea
Good leadership is complicated. The kind of leadership that revitalizes a plateaued church or changes the direction of a declining business takes selfless courage and can’t be defined in just a few simple words. As a pastor with an extensive business background, Ron Edmondson understands the expectations that plague leaders in all circles of life. He has seen countless aspiring leaders give into “myths” about what it looks like to be at the top, In The Mythical Leader, a simple book about a complex subject. Edmondson walks readers through common misunderstandings about leadership and explains how changing perspective on these issues can make you highly effective in your sphere of influence. Bottom Line? If you improve your individual leadership skills, it not only will help you, but your stronger leadership will also transform the people, the church, or the business around you.

“Companies that did business from a foundation of love and purpose and practiced servant leadership produced a 1026 percent return to shareholders over a ten-year period, eight times more than the so-called Good to Great companies.” (Coetzer, 2019)
With a slant towards servant leadership, Tom interviews contemporary authors to drill down on topics such as long-distance leadership, resilience, clarity, culture, developing others, individual behavior, persuasion, managing up, spiritual best practices, character, values, trust and more.
