Books from Award-Winning Author, Alan Fadling

“You might ask how many books on leadership are necessary. Don’t we have enough? Well, you could purge all the excess and just own one — this one. Fadling has re-written the book on having true influence. By exploring the way of Jesus (a quantifiable genius at impacting others) we gain the radical/root perspective of leading others and how it doesn’t require longer hours, harder work, brighter brilliance or frenzied productivity. An Unhurried Leader is the deep inhale in a society of hyper-ventilation.” (Todd R., Pastor)
