Book Review of The 4 Dimensions of Extraordinary Leadership by Jenni Catron

You have the capacity to become an extraordinary leader---if you are willing to embrace a deeper definition of leadership and take action to apply it.

In The 4 Dimensions of Extraordinary Leadership, Jenni Catron, executive church leader and author of Clout, reveals the secrets to standout leadership found in the Great Commandment: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength."

Weaving a winsome narrative filled with inspiring real-life stories, hard-won wisdom, and practical applications, Catron unpacks four essential aspects of growing more influential: your heart for relational leadership, your soul for spiritual leadership, your mind for managerial leadership, and your strength for visionary leadership.

Leadership isn't easy, but it is possible to move from ordinary to extraordinary.  Jenni Catron shows the way.

Quotes I loved from the book...
"Love your neighbor as yourself."

The Great Commandment has enormous implications for us as leaders.  This is where extraordinary is found.

The heart of a leader is the truest part of who he or she is.  Your heart is the center of your emotions, desires, and wishes.  Your heart is what most connects you with others.

Before we can lead others from our heart, soul, mind, and strength, there is a key first step.  I believe it is the starting point of leadership.  To lead others well, we must first lead ourselves better.

Extraordinary is a result of a hungry, teachable attitude and a commitment to consistent growth and progress.

The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly. - Jim Rohn

Extraordinary leaders step up to help make decisions and to guide the way, especially when circumstances are complex.  - Jenni Catron
