Chapters conclude with “My Leadership Bookshelf” where the authors shares their most influential reads at the stage of their leadership development discussed in the chapter. Two sets of questions conclude each piece: Personal Reflection and Applications as well as Team Reflections and Applications.
Contributions are based on these four questions, with room to expand as authors felt necessary:
- If you could give a “last lecture” to the next generation of those called to lead faith-based nonprofits, what would be the most important lessons you would share?
- If you could invest the next year of your life in the next leader of your most treasured faith-based nonprofit organization, what would be your emphasis?
- If you could lead your organization into the future, what would you do differently and why?
- What do you believe to be the most important legacy God has allowed you to leave as a faith-based nonprofit leader?
