As Book Week 2013 continues, I’m thrilled to bring you an insanely unique offering: “Just Lead” by my friend Jenni Catron and Sherry Surratt.
For the past year, I’ve been part of a group of special women thanks to Jenni. She had a passion to surround herself with like-minded, motivated and driven women that could share with and learn from each other. I would have been an idiot not to accept such an invitation to connect.
Last Fall, Jenni humbly asked if we’d be willing to work through a new book together…a book she was in the final process of writing and editing with her friend Sherry. That book was “Just Lead“. Of course we unanimously agreed to dig in.
I don’t think I’m overstating the fact that Jenni is a trailblazer in her field. Not only is Jenni a leader by title (the Executive Director of my multi-site church, Crosspoint), but more importantly, she leads in practice.
She is a constant student. She continually educates herself. She passes that knowledge to others. And most importantly, she executes.
For many years, the words “Women” and “Leader” were not allowed to be used bumped up against each other. Now that those barriers have been broken through, it’s important that we have solid resources to guide us in becoming the best we can be.
