Leadership Courage: Leadership in a Culture of Cowardice

“Leadership Courage: Leadership in a Culture of Cowardice”

(Kindle Edition) by Kirk Kirlin

The author asserts that the Church in North America, by and large, is steeped in a “culture of cowardice”. According to Dr. Edwin Friedman, author of A Failure of Nerve, a distinctive type of leadership is required. Kirlin applies principles gleaned from his experience coaching pastors while applying Dr. Friedman’s insights giving timely counsel for ministers and leaders in today’s Church.

What other leaders are saying …

“Kirk has preserved a safe place of learning important enough to me—in the busyness and brokenness of the world—that I want to develop coaching skills and gifts.”
Dr. John E. Griswold, Hollywood Hills United Methodist Church

“… one of Kirk’s strongest attributes as a coach is his ability to listen. His true desire is to see each person he works with grow, and he understands that each of us is very different. So, he listens to the words we say and the emotion with which we say them. Then, when the time is right, he speaks with understanding and wisdom… I have grown, and become much more successful both in my personal life and in my craft as a minister.”  
– Lee Schrebeck, Riverside Free Methodist Church
