After 30 years in the trenches of leadership, I decided to ask the question, “What are the most important skills every new leader should master?” I came up with an acrostic for the word LEADERSHIP. Each chapter of this book, 10 chapters in all, outlines one of those essential skills/behaviors. The “Top 10 Mistakes Leaders Make” is about pitfalls to avoid. This book is the other side of the coin, it is about essential skills every leader should master. Enjoy and let me know what you think!
Although leadership is the hot topic on conference agendas and book tours, most people who find themselves in positions of leadership have little or no training for the role. They simply continue to make the same old mistakes.

Whether you are leading a church, company, a ministry, a Girl Scout troop, or your family, The Top Ten Mistakes Leaders Make is a must-read for anyone who wants to lead others effectively.
This leadership classic is based on the life and legacy of Moses. “I happen to think he is one of the greatest leaders in history because he had such a tough leadership assignment but did not quit!”
Based on the life and legacy of Moses, Hans presents ten scriptural principles that can revolutionize your business, your ministry, even your life.
The life of Moses provides a master study on what it means to be an effective leader. Consider his pedigree: Answered the call to do something beyond his means; stood his ground before kings; led millions of people on a journey across rivers and through deserts. Moses did this all with a dogged persistence that would not give up. You will discover a dynamic, effective tool for developing leadership skills, all built on the solid foundation of God’s word.
