The Heart of an Executive: Lessons on Leadership From the Life of King David by Richard D. Phillips

The Heart of an Executivechronicles the career of David, one of the best-known figures in the Bible, from his humble origins as a shepherd boy to his slaying of the giant Goliath, to his triumphant crowning success as king of Israel. Davids story is that of a career executive, and in it Richard D. Phillips sees reflected the trials and triumphs that mark our own lives in todays business world. Like any other executive, Davids career came in recognizable stages: preparation, rise, achievement, and finally, the passing of the torch. While following his career, the reader witnesses the fashioning of a leader, as Davids heart is shaped by his faith in God, his love for his people, and his passion for real and lasting achievement. Through many trials and failures, David emerged as a leader who inspired others to achieve the impossible. Despite his own flaws and the venomous opposition of many, David remained true to God and his people, and through this one man an entire nation found its purpose and identity. This is precisely the kind of leader todays world needs, and Phillips amply demonstrates the relevance of Davids reign for todays businessperson. The lessons inThe Heart of an Executiveare clear, biblically based, and will challenge and equip men and women to raise their aspirations and heighten the impact of their leadership. Like any other executives, Davids career had its stages: preparation, rise, achievement, and finally, the passing of the torch. But what set David apart, what made him the most beloved king in Israelite history, was his vision, for both himself and his people, that grew out of his faith in God. David placed Gods wishes and laws before his own personal ambitions, and he inspired a similar dedication in his followers. Despite many challenges and setbacks, he ruled Israel, remaining true to his God and his people, and inspired his subjects to achieve the impossible--precisely the kind of leader the world needs today. No matter the size of the company, the clear and relevant lessons in THE HEART OF AN EXECUTIVE will enable executives to see their own challenges, recognize frustrations, realize dreams, and rekindle the fires of their weary hearts.
