Leadership in a Lost Generation
Leadership Principles for Today from the Life of Moses
by Barry Bowater

Understanding the story of Moses’s leadership of the Israelites in their exodus from Egypt to the Promised Land is foundational to understanding how to lead effectively today. Even though he was prepared for leadership and called by God to lead upwards of three million people in a journey that could have lasted two years, but ended up taking forty, Moses faced all the challenges today’s leaders face and provides us with a prototype for effective leadership. Moses exemplified trust in God, a key component for Christian leaders. He modelled servant leadership, an approach that was as effective then as it is today. And Moses stood up for the people, even offering to take punishment on their behalf. This book offers an in-depth study of Moses’s leadership development, and pairs it with the principles and methodology of the Adizes Institute to create a valuable toolkit for leaders of organizations, churches, and families. The Israelites were a generation that were lost not physically, but spiritually. The same can be said for today’s generation. As a leader, you have your work cut out for you, but you are not alone. Think of God as your greatest asset in your life and your leadership. He is your source for truth and wisdom, and will equip you for the task at hand. This book will show you how.
