Seven Principles for Super-effective Leadership: Creative Strategies and Tactics to Become the Best Christian Boss by George Vasilca is a book on leadership that explores the traits of a good Christian leader. In this book, the author offers a fresh perspective on leadership based on Jesus’ core values. Readers will understand leadership as leading a life of significance and positively impacting others. It is, above all, a path towards personal growth. The book defines what a good leader looks like, following the example of Jesus, and communicates 7 key principles for effective leadership — moral character as the foundation of leadership, the style of leadership of Jesus as a yardstick to measure the effectiveness of leadership, the principle of core knowledge, the mindset of an effective leader, communication skills, creative cooperation, and the principle of daily renewal. This is a well-researched and expertly written book with a message that will appeal to Christian readers who want to lead themselves and others. The author underlines some key points and articulates, in a masterful way, on moral character, identifying traits like humility, empathy, commitment, excellence, and moral authority. The book is written in an easy-to-read style and in a voice that is friendly. Seven Principles for Super-effective Leadership is a book about leading after the heart of Jesus and I enjoyed the universal character of its message. It is not just about leading a group but acts and having a psychological make-up that benefits others and that inspires growth in others. George Vasilca is a great communicator who delivers a powerful message in a way that is accessible to ordinary readers. It is interesting to notice how the author breaks down complex concepts into actionable steps that readers can follow, asking questions that compel them to reflect on their understanding of leadership and on ways to implement the knowledge in the book. This book is a gem for anyone who wants to make a difference in the lives of others and in their community or organization.
