Leading with Story
by: Rick Sessoms (Author)
Eighty percent of the world’s people—including seventy percent of Americans—are storycentric communicators; that is, they prefer to learn and are most likely to be influenced through stories, pictures, drama, and music rather than through reading and writing. Yet more than ninety percent of Christian workers communicate through a highly literacy-based approach. This disconnect overlooks a primary method of Jesus himself in the preparation of leaders and impedes the effective cultivation of leaders in the growing global church. Through engaging stories, biblical insights, leadership research, field-tested methods, and practical models of effective leadership development, Leading with Story offers unique solutions that will inspire and challenge any who want to raise up or to be raised up as Christ-centered leaders in this storycentric generation.
This re-centering by Sessoms on story and narrative has such wide-ranging effectiveness because it is grounded in Jesus’ own methods of gospel proclamation and leadership development. The one Person who is uniquely “the Truth” is the best source for universal ministry principles across time and culture and for effective witness in His name.David Denmarkexecutive director, The Maclellan Foundation, Inc.
Rick has the key to unlock a new level of communicating biblical ideals, and he provides the solid tools to make it a leadership lifestyle.Roger Parrottpresident, Belhaven University
