Next Generation Leader: Five Essentials For Those Who Will Shape The Future, written by Andy Stanley, is a book that is designed to clarify the five characteristics that will define tomorrow’s great leaders.

Andy begins this publication trying to bring proper understanding to an issue that affects many people within the church and society in general. In his own words, found in chapter one page eighteen, “The problem was that somewhere along the way I had bought into the myth that a good leader has to be good at everything.”

Andy wants his readers to understand that everyone has a purpose, everyone has a place, everyone has the ability to do exactly what they need to be doing. Thus they do not need to fill their time or utilize their efforts on those things that others are better suited to see to fruition.

Andy also shares what he determines to be the five appropriate characteristics of a leader. Competence: leaders who understand their skills set. Courage: leaders who initiate forward progress. Clarity: leaders who have clarity in vision, even in the face of uncertainty. Coaching: leaders who seek the advice of others. Character: leaders who believe that character and morality are important.

This book is packed with information that is sure to transform the leadership position of anyone who turns its pages, thus it is a recommended read.
