Lead – You are The Project
Lead is now out!
A month ago, with a handful of advance copies, we asked a few people – people who have direct first-hand experience of Karl Martin’s leadership, i.e those who know his weaknesses, who will spot an inaccuracy a mile off, who will see an exaggerated story as an opportunity for merciless ribbing – we asked them to give us an honest opinion on Karl’s new book. We’re posting their thoughts in full here, one at a time.
And do send us your own review, if you would like to. We are loving the feedback.
Today’s review of Lead comes from Kenny Roy, who is part of Karl’s staff team.
Karl shares his heart for developing leaders which I have seen him live out in practice over the past eight years. As part of his staff team I had the privilege of seeing him lead, seeing him invest in others and have him invest in me.
“You need an environment of security if you are ever to lead a life of adventure.” He displays genuine vulnerability in this book, readily admitting he is still a project but taking us with him on the journey he is also on, becoming more like Jesus and leading like Jesus leads his disciples.
This book is full of stories, teaching, memorable one-liners and piercing insight. It is written in his own unique communication style: engaging, interesting and insightful. Karl makes us think and challenges our learned behaviour and expectations in a good way. I thoroughly recommend reading this book.
