Revive your leadership and become equipped to lead joy-filled, emotionally mature, relationally connected teams.
Healthy teams begin with healthy leaders, and at the heart of this dynamic is emotional maturity – the quality the greatest leaders possess.
Combining solid theology, cutting-edge brain science, and decades of counseling and consulting experience, Rare Leadership shows you how to take your leadership and team to the next level. It will equip you to:
- Cultivate emotional maturity in yourself and others
- Develop the four uncommon habits of R.A.R.E. leaders – Remain Relational, Act Like Yourself, Return to Joy, and Endure Hardship Well
- Promote a strong group identity
- Keep relationships bigger than problems
- Increase your productivity through trust, joy, and engagement.
Discussion questions are included at the end of each chapter. A glossary at the end of the book is also available to explain some of the terms and concepts discussed.
Whether you are burnt out or just looking to improve, when you prioritize people and lead from a secure identity you’ll be amazed at the freedom you will feel and the results you will see. You can lead from a healthy place, respond rather than react, and build the team of your dreams. If you want to take your organization to the next level, it starts with you. Rare Leadership will equip you to lead joy-filled, emotionally mature, and relationally connected teams.

“ HOW MANY OF YOU have ever worked for a terrible boss?” This is
the question I often ask audiences when I start my talks on leadership.
How would you respond? I love the topic of leadership because
leaders make things happen. Leaders affect all of us, whether we lead,
follow, or try to stay out of the way. History is the story of leaders—
good and bad ones that have done amazing good and terrible evil.
I have a huge passion to help people starting out in leadership get
on the right track and not make the awful mistakes that make life
miserable for followers.
When I ask that “terrible boss” question, without fail, ninety percent
of the audience raises their hands and rolls their eyes. I also get
a lot of soft moans. It is like they are saying, “Hans, if only you knew
the half of it!”
Why are there so many leaders out there that are really tough to
trust and follow? Honestly, I think it has to do with their lack of
being emotionally healthy. One of the biggest mistakes people make
in the realm of leadership is focusing too much on “what am I to do?”
as opposed to “who am I to be?” Yes, I confess that in my thirty years
of leadership—practicing it, writing books about it, and teaching the
topic—I have often fallen into that performance trap. And face it—
most boards evaluate their leaders based on performance and results.
I so much appreciate this refreshing book you hold in your hands,
