Master Leaders by George Barna

Master Leaders (Book Review)

In his book, George Barna shared a lot of insights he learned from respected leaders of his time. Leaving a message that encourages us to:

Be determined to grow every day in your leadership capabilities.

The following are quotes on leadership and cases shared by various leaders from the book!

“Leadership is less about commanding and more about empowering
people to live up to their potential by using all of their abilities.”

“Willingness to focus on others rather than self.”
~Sam Chand

Leadership is also about “Listening to Learn.”

“As the years have gone by, I have come to think of leadership
as the mobilization of people toward a shared objective. And that mobilization
requires the leader to first listen in order to learn, in order to lead.”

~Chaplain Black

Leadership is also about “Collaboration.”

“Today I look at leadership much more as a partnership than

any kind of hierarchical arrangement

(Collaborative leadership).”

~Ken Blanchard

One best practice in leadership as one speaker encouraged is the power of encouraging people.

“Encouragement produces a better worker and happier worker

and a more motivated person.”

~Miles McPherson

Further, would like to emphasize an important point based on this chapter that all effective aspects of leadership are about “servant leadership.” Servant Leadership is all about serving your customers and serving your people.  Effective Leadership is about motivating people to be part of a collaboration in which everyone has stake and the leader is simply directing the flow of energy and talent towards specified, agreed-upon goal.

Leadership is not about your position as much as it’s based on who you are as a person and the capabilities you demonstrate.

~Don Sonderquist
