But regardless of religious belief, most people would agree that Jesus was a powerful ethical and spiritual figure and one of the most influential and inspiring people who ever lived. It is in this spirit that Charles Manz not a theologian but rather a highly regarded leadership professor and consultant approaches the teachings of Jesus. The Leadership Wisdom of Jesus is for anyone who wants to become a wise and highly effective leader. It outlines a uniquely constructive and compassionate approach to leadership based on positive spiritual principles contained in the teachings of Jesus.
