Where do you lead? Family? Church? Business? Community? Where can you find a leadership model that can transform your life?

Ken Blanchard has found that all successful leadership characteristics are modeled after the leadership style of Jesus. In Lead Like Jesus, Blanchard and Hodges focus on four key areas and how they can direct you toward becoming the incredible leader you aim to be.

The four areas include:

  • Heart–What is your motivation as a leader, whether as head of a family, church, or a large corporation?
  • Head–What are your beliefs and viewpoints about leadership?
  • Hands–Do you set clear goals and measure performance, consistently following up with those you lead?
  • Habits–How do you refresh and renew yourself as a leader?

Your leadership transformation means adopting a God’s-eye view of your life and leadership. You will learn how to align your leadership motivation, viewpoint, behaviors, and habits with those of Jesus to effectively lead others.

In Lead Like Jesus, you get not only the advantage of Blanchard and Hodges’ expertise, but also assessment tools that will help you analyze your own leadership style. Effective design for personal, one-on-one, team, family, or community leadership starts on the inside. Whether you lead a corporation, church or a family, Lead Like Jesus will transform your life and the lives of those you touch.


Jesus modeled servant leadership, leading by example. He said “I came to serve not to be served.” Now, two thousand years later, Jesus has over 2.1 billion followers, which makes Him the undisputed greatest leader of all time. He is the only flawless example. That’s why you should read this book!

-Rick Warren, Author, The Purpose Driven Life

If you want to be the servant leader that Jesus mandated His followers to be, then read Lead Like Jesus. It will change your life and the lives of people you are able to influence.

-Bill Hybels, Senior Pastor, Willow Creek Community Church

You’ll find few men better qualified to address this topic than Ken Blanchard. His favorite name is “Jesus” and preferred verb is “lead.” Let him do for you what he’s done for me and millions of others–help you lead like Jesus.

  1. Kevin Fulford

    Great book. Ken Blanchard is awesome to begin with, but now he has taken it to the next level…the highest level, by bringing our Lord into the equation. Thank you Mr. Blanchard. This book is a real blessing, and a true catalyst for growth.

  2. Ralph Delgado

    Read a chapter a day and got excited about the content. A very strong book on how to follow after the example of Jesus. So much so that I’ve already recommended it to my Bible Study group of men for their edification. Well done! to the authors…

  3. Owen Lee


    On point instructions, with vivid examples, from Jesus’ life, on Earth. If you desire to be an example of the Power of Servant Leadership, this book will be an invaluable tool to help you and others, that you share it with.
