Leading Without Power

By Mark Oestreicher | Hierarchical, coercive leadership should have no place in the church.But if we move away from those unbiblical (and ineffective) forms of power-based leadership, we still need to lead.

In Leading Without Power, Mark Oestreicher explores—in very pragmatic ways—what it might look like for us to replace power-based leadership modalities with other approaches.

Leading Without Power unpacks nine metaphorical job titles, with stories and examples of what it looks like to embody these mindsets and practices:

  • Competency Facilitator
  • Culture Evangelist
  • Mission Curator
  • Storytelling Host
  • Champion of Hope
  • Uniqueness DJ
  • Contextualization Czar
  • Trust Guard
  • Collaboration Guide

Read it alone or collectively, with a leadership team (volunteer, staff, or both), looking for ways that different team members can utilize their passions and gifts to build a robust and flourishing culture of people development and values-based leadership.
