Henri J. M. Nouwen: In the Name of Jesus: Reflections on Christian Leadership
http://www.henrinouwen.org/books/bibliography/view/?id=1101355328002194600 "I was suddenly faced with my naked self, open for affirmations and rejections, hugs and punches, smiles and tears, all dependent simply on how I was perceived at the moment. In a way, it seemed as though I was starting my life all over again. This experience... forced me to rediscover my true identity. ...to reclaim that unadorned self in which I am completely vulnerable, open to receive and give love regardless of any accomplishments." Here is a lesson in Christian leadership the reader will never forget.
Ronald A. Heifetz: Leadership Without Easy Answers
http://books.google.com/books?id=B991NiiS9GcC We are indeed facing an unprecedented crisis of leadership, Ron Heifetz avows, but it stems as much from our demands and expectations as from any leader's inability to meet them. His strategy of leadership applies not only to people at the top but also to those who must lead without authority. Sketched with precision, touched by empathy, and unfailingly interesting, this cast of characters brings Heifetz's theory to life, demonstrating what a practitioner can do - or avoid doing - to assume leadership in an age without easy answers.
