Be the smartest and most competent leader in the room.

demands constant reframing and reappraisal of the situation at hand. It
requires focus, objectivity, honest appraisal of self and others, and
evaluation of available resources. An effective Christian church leader
must also align the congregation’s vision and practices with God’s
vision and the teachings of Christ. Perhaps most importantly, the church
leader must love others.
Charles Stone uses recent neuroscience research to show how basic brain
processes affect leadership. He writes in layperson’s language, with
memory-boosting illustrations and acronyms, helping readers to increase
productivity, handle stress, create and sustain healthy teams, and
manage change in the church. Brain science complements and reinforces
Christian teaching on life and leadership; Brain-Savvy Leaders equips readers to use that science as a tool for improvement for life and for the church.
Brain-Savvy Leaders is…

the best book I have read on the brain science of healthy thinking and
effective leadership. Dr. Stone has done an incredible job of balancing
modern brain science with Biblical truth, making complex ideas simple to
understand and providing practical tools to enhance mental performance.
