IMPACT: Great Leadership Changes Everything<
For more than 25 years, organizational psychologist and management consultant Dr. Tim Irwin has worked with thousands of leaders in well-known global companies. He knows most leaders work for recognition and advancement and they want more challenge and responsibility. He’s also found this to be true: Most of us want to make a positive difference through our work and to have our lives count for something more than simply making a living. We want to make an impact.
About the author:
Dr. Tim Irwin, the author of the New York Times best-selling book Impact: Great Leadership Changes Everything, has been a confidante to thousands of global leaders. He is a favorite guest of Hugh Hewitt and is being featured on a number of Christian radio programs. Irwin sees one central issue anytime a leader “derails”—he believes they have a defect in their “core”, which Irwin says goes beyond the overused term “character”. His new book, Impact, addresses this and gives actionable ways leaders can protect themselves, and better serve their organizations—especially crucial for those of us who serve in ministry and are walking a Christian walk.
Although this book is written with the businessperson in mind and from that perspective, I think everyone can glean something from it. Whether you are a leader in a big corporation, a non-profit or a leader volunteer at your child’s school or somewhere in the community, this book has something for you. It’s for anyone who wants to make an impact in the lives of others and in their community. As a Sunday school volunteer at my church, I can see many ways I can use the information in this book to make an impact on my kids, even though I only have them for 90 minutes each week.
