Redemptive Leadership: Unleashing Your Greatest influence

Will God ever use me again?

How can I invest my broken life?

Does my life matter?

Have you ever asked yourself these questions? All too often, churches, organizations, and companies abandon their broken leaders at the very moment the person becomes most useful. 

In Redemptive Leadership, Dr. Harv Powers explains

  • Why God uses only broken leaders
  • How God uses brokenness to transform the lives of others
  • The process to become a redemptive leader

Redemptive leadership rests on the hope that out of the ashes of our lives, transcendent influence emerges. God uses all the events of our lives, both positive and negative, to forge in us our redemptive influence for His kingdom. If the gospel holds any power at all, it does so because God works powerfully in and through our weakness. 

Leadership transcends the mastery of skills, techniques, and knowledge—what we call “competency.” Dr. Powers charts a path through our moments of crisis and failure so we will bear the seeds of godly character and exert our greatest influence.

MarriageU 101 Notebook: The Developmental Stages of Marriage

MarriageU exists to strengthen, equip and empower sustainable healthy marriage. This workbook is designed as a companion to the MarriagU 101 Seminar. Much of what’s been written on marriage takes a “pathology” approach, focusing on what is wrong in marriage. MarriageU takes a health oriented approach that presents strategic insights that make relationships healthier, happier, lasting and satisfying. MarriageU 101 focuses on the developmental stages of marriage.

We are living in a day of leadership madness where character has been exchanged for confidence and integrity jettisoned for results. We are more desperate today for good leaders
and meaningful material on leadership than ever before. Harv Powers offers a lucid and deep understanding of the developmental journey a leader must walk to offer not only vision but life. Harv is a brilliant, tender, and wise man whose labor will reinvigorate your leadership and clarify your next steps in your calling.

Harvey Powers gives us hope by showing us how brokenness is different from woundedness. Woundedness breeds defensiveness while brokenness releases life. Powers doesn’t just show us the city on the hill but gives us a road map on how to get there. I know—he did for me, and my journey has been sweeter because
I have a redemptive story to tell. Get this book if you are serious about being the leader God can use to bring redemption to others.

If you have experienced a crisis as a leader—and who hasn’t?—Dr. Harv Powers’s book Redemptive Leadership is for you. The wisdom he has gathered through coaching, mentoring, and studying great leaders will change the way we think about the role of crisis as a key catalyst in the internal development of leaders, a topic seldom discussed in current leadership literature. In his view, this internal growth supports longevity as a leader and spawns what he defines as redemptive influence. Don’t miss out on this important leadership discussion as it will change how we understand what truly shapes the internal life of a leader.

This leadership book is a refreshing departure from the standard shallow professional advice I read so often. Harv Powers is onto something fresh with his five-stage Redemptive Leadership Model. I agree with him that the best leadership often springs from the ashes. God uses us because of our brokenness, not in spite of our brokenness. This book is a great culmination of Dr. Powers’s decades of helping hurting leaders.
