Just lead! is a welcome guide for women who feel called to lead but who need help to learn what it takes to break the "stained-glass ceiling." As two experienced leaders who have served in a number of capacities in churches and organizations, Surrat and Catron not only explore the barriers-internal and external that keep women from assuming a leadership role but also provide practical reality checks on what women can do to become effective leaders.
The book shows us how to handle criticism, face indecision, and grapple with the loneliness that often comes with being in charge. It also offers sage advice on respecting gender differences, overcoming communication barriers, leading other women, and developing a balanced team.
Written with style and wit Just Lead! is filled with illustrative examples, solid research, and practical advice for women who aspire to leadership roles within their churches and ministries. Sherry Surratt and Jenni Catron have "walked the leadership walk" and are wise companions in showing godly women how to lead well.
