No matter what leadership arena you serve in…whether leading a family, a Church, an educational setting, a civic organization, or company, Adopting the leadership example of Jesus will make you more effective and productive.
“Leading Jesus’ Way” will show you how to become the leader God created you to be. The purpose of my book is for you to learn an actionable, practical, implementable model of Jesus’ servant leadership that will positively impact both your personal and professional life. “Leading Jesus’ Way will empower you to step into servant leadership.
Dr. Marshall declares, “My prayer is that you will be transformed by spending time with the men and women God has used as leaders to change the world for millennia.”
There are many leadership books on the market today, but only a few address the leadership style of Jesus Christ. This book elaborates on how Jesus’ leadership style affected those who crossed His path and is compared to how leaders today should lead. Dr. Marshall includes a thorough discussion on servant leadership, as well as a comparative analysis of various leadership styles.
This book keeps the reader involved and engrossed, while asking the reader to question his/her way of leading whether at work, home, or church. Dr. Marshall’s sharing of her own experiences adds a personal feel to the book. This is a must-read book that is biblically based on leadership of today and yesterday.

Leading Jesus’ Way is easy to read—hard to put down. Dr. Kim Marshall adroitly identified ten characteristics (speaking and acting with authority, telling stories, validating and affirming, showing humility, using wisdom, being visionary, being bold, listening, being vulnerable, and showing unconditional love). It provides a description of Jesus’ words, traits, and behaviors to illustrate Servant-leadership principles.
Those principles provide practical application of the attributes and characteristics of Jesus’ leadership model as He practiced them and their impact on organizations and leaders.
Dr. Marshall insists that to “fill a high place before men, one must be willing to take a lowly place before God,” which epitomizes servant-leadership.
This treatise will be required reading for those desiring to be leaders where I pastor.

One of the best books with information and practical implementation on servant leadership I have read in the last five years. Any church or Kingdom business leader can lead like Jesus with this effective guide.
