No more wonderful source of leadership lessons and values exists than the Bible!  It is filled with influential people and the results of their influence—both positive and negative.  Yet it remains so little used to convey leadership values and principles.  What is needed to draw more fully from its well of insights?  Three things: 

  1. A conviction that the Bible can both teach and illustrate leadership insights.
  2. A willful decision to study and use the Bible as a source of leadership insights.
  3. Leadership eyes, that is, a set of leadership perspectives that will help us see leadership lessons, values, and insights in the Bible.

I hold each of these convictions. And I can say that in light of my 30-plus years now as a mentor, coach, and advisor to leaders, I am convinced that the book of Nehemiah is one of our most robust biblical sources for leadership lessons. Christian leaders desperately need these leadership insights as we seek to influence for the fulfillment of God's purposes– and as we start or lead new initiatives for the greater good in our homes, churches, cities, and countries worldwide.
