Leading Without Power

By Max De Pree

You don't really read Max De Pree, you just pull up a chair and soak up the wisdom that pours from his pages. While Mr. De Pree passed from this world in August of 2017, his legacy (he addresses the topic of legacy in this book) lives on, in part, in his writings. De Pree writes, "I have written Leading Without Power: Finding Hope in Serving Community in the hope that it will in some modest way help nonprofit organizations and the people in them understand leadership in a new light." As one serving in a nonprofit sector, I say, "Mission accomplished!" But these insights should not be reserved only for those in the not-for-profit tribe. No matter where you lead, pick up this book. I suspect you will be highlighting and making multiple notes with a view to serving better through your leadership.
