Avoiding the pitfalls of Saul–‘Leadership Lessons’

leadershipKing Saul got angry and threw things.  At people.  He attempted to kill his own son. He was impatient and moody and often failed to listen to trusted advisors.  Have you had to follow a leader who acted like Saul?  Do you act like Saul?  

Dr. Ralph Hawkins and Dr. Richard Parrott, authors of “Leadership Lessons”, take Saul’s pitfalls, analyze them and offer practical guidelines for leaders.  The ten lessons in their book provide biblical guidelines for leadership, demonstrate how to apply these lessons to real life and concrete steps to help you improve your leadership skills.  

This is a very in-depth study created to be used as a small group discussion study.  In order to get the most out of the book, you must be willing to participate in group discussions and personal reflection.  It is a great resource for church leaders and business men and women as well as ministry leaders.  Drs. Hawkins and Parrot are wise, knowledgeable men who are passionate about building leadership in Christian men and women.

Dr. Hawkins is associate professor of Religious Studies at Averett University in Danville, VA.  He speaks frequently on archaeology and leadership.  Dr. Parrott is a professor of education at Trevecca Nazarene University.  He speaks frequently to businesses and churches.  He is the founder and president of Seize Your Life, helping individuals and organizations take hold of life’s full potential.
