Clinton describes in all sections all the development phases of a leader. Through the understanding of the various phases, one gets an understanding of the process items that have the comprehensive tussles that leaders witness in all the phases. Through the recognition of the process items, leaders get furnished with the appropriate skills to beyond their current undergoing to the unstated growth stage that they may be experiencing. The book develops a thoughtful transcendent response in leaders. Despite the book being written in a Christian point of thought, it can be noted of how its application applies in the nonspiritual world that has secular leaders. Clinton makes use of a variety of lessons and trends that aid in the development of leaders. Concrete Response The book’s section about crisis brought back the memory of a bad event in my life. It was during my pioneering days at the ministry when I got all the excitement that God was using to administer. However, a sudden sickness attacked me. It made me inactive for about two years. All this time I thought that my life had come to an abrupt end. As Clinton notes in the book, leaders are at times put to test by God through some situations to enable them learn on how to depend on God. The sickness was a test since it transformed me from my dependence state to becoming independent. I had to accept that I was sick and inactive but still alive. I understood that God would go ahead and use me despite the sickness.

RELIGION AND THEOLOGY 4 Just like Clinton notes in his book, I realized that God was the anchor of my faith and hope. This rejuvenated my energy and realized the need to start attending church again. I took my duties at the ministry. As time progressed, my body started getting back to its older self. I stopped feeling inactive and my energy was rekindled. With time, I got completely healed. The key to this transformation is that I never gave up. The reflection brings me into agreement with Clinton’s view that it takes more for one to become a better leader. Through the sickness and transformation, I acquired a greater faith in God. I got a testimony that I can use to attest to other people. During the crisis situation, I backed up on God since I thought I was not useful to the ministry. It dawned to me that my deliverance would only come from God and it eventually did. I got more passion for and determination for God. Reflection I found the book enjoyable, educative and easy to follow. The overall setup of the book was good. Clinton states in chapter one that the actual training takes place in the heart of an individual with God doing some tests in the individual’s growth. However, I do not understand the person who determines when the inner training is complete. I am left wondering whether the test is done by God to determine whether the individual has undergone a full transformation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
