Effective Leadership: Away from Influence and Toward Love

ENUMCLAW, Wash., March 7, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- An elemental change in the classic approach to effective leadership is now on the table. In his new book, "The Great Commandment Leader," Dr. Paul Dordal proposes a shift from influenced-based leadership to selfless leadership entirely focused on the care and nurture of those who follow, basing his model on the Great Commandment found in Matthew 22:26-30.

With a three-fold premise examining the image of God, the presence of God, and the mission of God, Dr. Dordal first studies the Great Commandment in depth, teaching the Christian leader how to live out the image of God in daily life, followed by an exploration of how to model Jesus in building trust within the leader/follower relationship. The culmination of this study of timeless and true leadership principles is Dr. Dordal's six transformational practices of Great Commandment leadership.

"Amid the clamor of voices claiming to possess the formula for what an effective leader must do, Paul Dordal sounds a clarion call by addressing what a good leader must be. Set squarely on the foundation of timeless biblical principles, this is a book aimed at setting the Greatest Commandment on fire in people's lives -- and in the lives of those God has called them to lead." -- Michael G. Scales, Ed.D., President, Nyack College and Alliance Theological Seminary

Paul Dordal, a respected Christian leader, has served as college vice president, church planter, senior pastor, and nonprofit consultant. He is also a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he served as a US Army chaplain.
