    Ready to Find Your Next Star Performer? REHOBOAM AND THE LAW OF CONNECTION Leaders Touch a Heart Before They Ask for a Hand 1 Kings 12:1–24 A LEADER can’t connect with people only when he is communicating to groups; he must connect with individuals.

  • LEADERSHIP INTUITION

    Ready to Find Your Next Star Performer? Leaders Evaluate Everything with a Leadership Bias (Exodus 18:1–24) LEADERSHIP INTUITION often separates the greatest leaders from the merely good ones.

  • The King Is Slow to Learn (Daniel 4:1–37)

    KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR proved himself to be one of the most arrogant leaders in history, so self-centered and prideful that God dealt with him in a most unusual way. God gave the king a vision of a huge tree, chopped down by an angel. The tree represented him. God removed him from his position and drove him into the wilderness to live like an animal. His hair and fingernails grew long; he ate the same diet as the beasts of the field; he dwelt in caves and dirt shelters. And he stayed out there until he fully recognized God as the...
