Balance Life & Leadership
Whether it is in the workplace, the church, the community, or at home, women are leaders. With this leadership comes an ongoing tension in trying to balance all aspects of life. Wedged between obligations, needs, and dreams, the true leader in each woman is sluggish and short of its full potential.
Awaken the Leader in You provides ten essentials for bringing life into balance—the foundation of effective leadership. Grounded in Scripture and illustrated by stories of women in the Bible and in contemporary society, the principles crystallize in applicable content. With a host of practical ideas for leadership enhancement, Dr. Linda M. Clark coaches readers in awakening leadership skills as they discover a new blend of ingredients for balanced living.
