Book Review: The Catalyst Leader by @bradlomenick

If you are looking for a leadership book that will challenge you and inspire you, look no further.  The latest from Brad Lomenick is just what you need.

In The Catalyst Leader, Lomenick shares 8 Essentials For Becoming A Change Maker.

The book is packed with great quotes, stories of inspiration, and practical advice for leaders who want to STRETCH and grow – who want the make a difference.  Besides the quotes, stories, and advice, I love the links found in the book that provide access to all kinds of other information and inspiration.

Lomenick shares stories from his past and from his most recent experience at the leader of Catalyst – perhaps the biggest and most influential leadership conference and organization in the world today.  He explains the 8 characteristics of a catalyst leader:

  • Called
  • Authentic
  • Passionate
  • Capable
  • Courageous
  • Principled
  • Hopeful
  • Collaborative

I have marks and notes all over this book.  I am pleased to add this to my leadership library, and it’s a book I’ll come back to again and again for practical tips in how I can become a better leader in my work, at my church, and in my home.

If you are a leader, consider picking up a copy of The Catalyst Leader today.  I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.  This is definitely a resource that I recommend.

How have these Catalyst characteristics changed your leadership?  What is one thing you can do this week to become a change maker right where you are?  What leadership books do you recommend adding to my library?
