Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I only I had got ahold of this book years ago. As I read page after page, I could see myself and problems of my personality that had caused distress in times gone by. Fortunately the author also gives solutions. It is possible to have personality deficits transformed to help carry one forwards to greater effectivness.

Confronting Latent Failures While Becoming an Effective Leader 8. Januar 2008
Von Richard R. Blake - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
In this revised edition of "Overcoming the Dark Side of Leadership" authors, Gary McIntosh and Samuel Rima reflect on what they have experienced and observed in Christian leadership during the ten years since the first edition was first published. Gary and Sam both share from the conflict in their own personal experiences which brought them to a place of recognizing their personal dysfunction and the importance of taking proactive steps in their journey of self discovery, healing and fulfillment..

Part one of the book helps the reader understand more fully what the dark side of personality is and how it develops. Part two deals with discovery of the dark side of leadership the reader may be dealing with personally. Part three discusses overcoming the dark side and offers a five-step plan for accomplishing this.

Additional chapters have been included to cover topics such as: The dangers of the dark side, and the process of spiritual composting. The appendix has been expanded by adding a section to help the reader identify their dark side.

Examples from the failures of Biblical and contemporary Christian leaders are used to illustrate various dysfunctions in the leadership styles of the compulsive leader, the narcissistic leader, the paranoid leader, the codependent leader, and the passive-aggressive leader.

I found the "targeting insights," and "applying insights" featured at the end of each chapter to be practical and helpful tools for self discovery.

This edition of "Overcoming the Dark Side of Leadership" has a new subtitle which offers new help to the reader, "How to Become an Effective Leader by Confronting Potential Failures. By melding relevant and significant information with proactive steps for today's Christian leaders, Gary L. McIntosh and Samuel D. Rima help their readers avoid the risks and consequences of making untimely devastating decisions that would taint the effectiveness of their personal testimony and the reputations of the Christian church.

An opportunity for leaders 23. Mai 2008
Von L. Macaria - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
McIntosh and Rima have provided an opportunity for every leader to discover their dark side - that hidden part of their personality that may explain their drive to lead.

They explain that our motivations may come from the desire to satisfy unmet needs and existential debts, and that significant experiences may cause us to have particularly strong drives that never seem to get satisfied. These strong drives may push us beyond outstanding leadership, to leadership failure that negatively affects others as well as ourselves if we do not recognize, harness, and transform our drives. It is a process of discovery, of bringing what is hidden into the light of awareness and understanding. Finally, we can overcome our dark side through God's grace and a new understanding of our identity and value that does not depend on performance and achievement, freeing and transforming our leadership.

A very worthwhile read, especially, if one takes the journey of self-discovery in the process.

Heart-searching honest appraisal of what really drives us in ministry 11. Dezember 2010
Von Darren Cronshaw - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Gary L McIntosh and Samuel D Rima, Overcoming the Dark Side of Leadership: How to Become an Effective Leader by Confronting Potential Failures (Grand Rapids, Baker 2007)
Review by Darren Cronshaw. Submitted for publication to Witness: The Voice of Victorian Baptists, Vol.91, No.3 (Submitted for April 2011) 21.

Among Baptist pastors and churches, we have realised our need for clear frameworks for practising ethical ministry and ongoing professional development. The price for unhealthy and unethical ministry is too high.
Leadership failures often emerge from similar underlying issues, and sadly many leaders are not aware of these dark sides of their personality. Understanding these issues, and not allowing them to blindside our ministry, is the responsibility of every leader.
We get a glimpse of dysfunction in our drive to succeed, perfectionism, controlling nature, desire for acceptance and approval or our irrational fears. But what dysfunction do these patterns signal and what can we do about them?
Overcoming the Dark Side of Leadership is a tonic of self-awareness. It explains the darkness of compulsions and dysfunctions and helps us redeem the darkness in our personality and what drives us. The book is full of extended biblical and contemporary stories of leaders in church, business and politics. It is worth the price for the survey that points to the degree of each of five particular leadership dysfunctions:
* The compulsive leader who has to maintain order and impress others with diligence
* The narcissistic leader who need attention and awareness of their importance
* The paranoid leader who is insecurely suspicious, jealous and controlling
* The codependent leader who represses emotions and smooths over problems
* The passive-aggressive leader who fears failure and so resists enthusiastic effort (and then emotionally storms in frustration).
The dilemma is that some of these things are what drive us to succeed, but unexamined they can undermine all we do. Sue Grafton, who writes novels about dark characters, suggests "we all need to look into the dark side of our nature - that's where the energy is, the passion. People are afraid of it because it holds pieces of us we're busy denying." (169)
McIntosh and Rima suggest that overcoming darkness in leadership begins with acknowledging it and being aware of how we are formed (and malformed). They invite leaders to resist the weight of expectations and practice grace towards ourselves. And they urge us to develop our inner lives and become more self-aware and confident of who we are in Christ.
This book is highly recommended for all pastors and leaders, and for those who care about them.

Darren coordinates leadership training with the Baptist Union of Victoria and pastors Auburn Baptist Church.

Easy to read...sort of helpful 14. Mai 2014
Von Josh Camacho - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
McIntosh and Rima have written a readable, ground-level introduction to the impact of early traumatic experiences on the development of personality aberrations. The primary value of this book is that it sensitizes you to the urgency for self-examination and the reality that indifference to this discipline may result in ministerial catastrophe. It is also replete with case studies that could serve as helpful preaching illustrations. The problem (in my opinion) is that in the authors' effort to be accessible to the general public, they have dramatically over-simplified the personality disorders they are attempting to help you diagnose. Further, the test questions they provide for self-diagnosis are framed in a way that is too leading to be helpful: "On a scale of 1 to 5 'I am obsessed with knowing how others feel about my performance.'" etc. In the final analysis...I gained a few helpful insights from this book but feel pretty sure that there are better (evangelical) resources in the world to help ministers work through the process of identifying and dealing with their personality aberrations.

John 1. September 2011
Von John - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a very challenging and informative book for those who seek to be in leadership, especially Christian leadership. KNOW YOUR WEAKNESSES, AND DEAL WITH THEM HONESTLY AND APPROPRIATELY. It was required reading for a Christian Leadership class at the Bible college that I attend. It made me do a bit of self-examination and caused some introspection. That's what the purpose of the book is, to provoke thought. The purchase through was great as usual and the book was excellent. I enthusiastically recommend both.
