Today’s world is full of noise, distractions, and poor leadership examples, making it increasingly difficult for teens and young adults to develop into Christ-like leaders. In this book, Tim Elmore illustrates the timeless principles that make leaders life-giving, inspiring and empowering. Too often, we not only fail to develop these kinds of leaders among our students, but we fail to practice these principles ourselves. This book defines the ultimate profile of what Elmore thinks a leader should look like.
Through memorable images — each with a series of engaging stories, self-assessment questions, and thought-provoking discussion topics — students learn, internalize, and apply important leadership principles that will help guide them for the rest of their lives.

- Feedback and Criticism
