Discerning the Wisdom of Christ as Real-Time Partners with Him
For Business, Non-Profit or Congregational Leaders

PBL Gary Thomas Quote

Presence-Based Leadership is vital in our unstable political and cultural environment. Not a program. Not a technique. Not another fad, but a posture for discerning the wisdom of Christ. Every leadership situation presents new and different challenges, but Christ knows every factor, every heart and motive, the present, past and future. How else can we dare lead but from discerning the wisdom and direction of Christ?
