As a leader, Martin Luther shook the world. Yet, oddly enough, while a great deal has been written about his life, theology, and legacy, few authors have taken the time to examine his leadership characteristics. Luther on Leadership fills this gap by examining his life in light of modern leadership theories. This book looks at Luther's life from a variety of angles to show why he was such an effective leader. With chapters focusing on Luther as a change agent, transformational leader, adaptive leader, and more, this work will help the reader understand why Luther transformed the landscape of Europe. Examining not only his theological contributions, but also his contributions in fields such as law, politics, economics, and education, Luther on Leadership aims to give a holistic picture of Luther as a leader in many areas of society. ""Who knew a sixteenth century monk was still so relevant today While much has been written over the centuries about Luther as a reformer and theologian, Luther on Leadership unlocks key lessons for today's leaders. Looking through a twenty-first century lens at Luther's leadership style will better your knowledge of one of the world's greatest change agents as well as enable you to see the change you can bring in your organization."" --Brent Taylor, Author of Founding Leadership: Lessons on Business and Personal Leadership from the Men Who Brought You the American Revolution David D.
