Discipled Leader By Preston Poore


Preston Poore has spent decades in corporate America. Despite all the excellent advice he was given for growing in leadership, there was something missing: a way to bring his Christian beliefs to bear in his professional life, not just his personal life. So Preston sought his own answer to how his faith could impact his management of hundreds of employees.

What he discovered was this: the first step wasn't adjusting his leadership style. Instead, he needed to let God change him before he could effect real change in his workplace. And in order to model discipleship to his team, he needed to first be discipled by the Spirit. Here, in the day-to-day practice of being a disciple of Jesus Christ, Poore found where his faith and exceptional leadership intersect.

Through personal stories, biblical principles, and hands-on workplace guidance, Poore offers readers a unique look at this seldom-discussed connection. He challenges struggling leaders to engage in the hard work of daily discipleship. And he charges experienced leaders to return to the fundamentals of their faith, encouraging them to disciple other Christians with leadership potential.

For anyone wrestling with how to bring faith to the workplace, whether it be a cubicle or a boardroom, Discipled Leader reveals that leadership doesn't begin behind the desk--it begins in the soul.

After working in upper-level management for companies like Coca-Cola and Hershey’s and small business ownership, I long to convey my hard-won leadership knowledge to the Christian community.

My thirty-plus years of experience have positioned me to write and speak on the paramount importance of leadership, discipleship, and communication and how those necessary abilities translate from the secular marketplace to the church.

Authentic, inspiring, and results-oriented in my work leading teams of dozens to hundreds, I bring the same abilities to bear on my writing and speaking. Additionally, I have extensive training experience in personal and professional development after working with Dale Carnegie Training and becoming a John Maxwell certified executive coach, speaker, and trainer.

I hold an MBA from Samford University and a BS in Management from Colorado State University.

My wife, Carla, and I live in the Atlanta metro area, and we have two children, Caroline and Benton. During my spare time, I like to work out, bike, boat, write, read, and travel.

This is a great edition to those wanting to be, or all ready in a leadership role. To help guide them in the right direction to be ineffective leader.
