Description

Are you hungry to help others through leadership but don't feel like you have the authority?

One of the greatest myths of leadership is that you must be in charge in order to lead. Great leaders don't buy it. Great leaders - whether they have the official authority or not - learn how to be an influential presence wherever they are.

In How to Lead When You're Not in Charge, author and pastor Clay Scroggins explains the nature of leadership and what's needed to be a great leader - even when you answer to someone else.

Drawing from biblical principles and his experience as the lead pastor of Buckhead Church in Atlanta, Georgia, Clay will help you nurture your vision and cultivate influence with integrity and confidence, even when you lack authority in your organization or ministry.

In this audiobook, Clay will walk you through the challenge of leadership and the four basic behaviors all great leaders have and how to cultivate them:

  • Leading yourself
  • Choosing positivity
  • Thinking critically
  • Rejecting passivity

With practical wisdom and humor, Clay Scroggins will help you free yourself to become the great leader you want to be so you can make a difference. Even when you're not in charge.

Charts and graphs included in the audiobook companion PDF download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Vocal Fry and Proselytizing

The author/narrator is grating to listen to - he has the most vocal fry I've ever heard in a supposedly straight man. The book is frustrating with how much the author weaves his faith into it. I'm not here to get converted.

difficult for bin Christians to listen to

it is heavily Christian, which I was unaware of prior to listening to this book. I listened to the first chapter and a half, but was having a difficult time tuning out the religious aspect.

Disappointing

I've listened to motivating books with a religious undertone but this is next level. By the end you're just listening to bible quotes.
I was really hoping to get a more practical and real world outlook. Let me be clear there is none of that here. What a waste of money.

extremely religious...

I bought this book to help with leadership. little did I know that this book was written by a church minister. every example ties into the Bible somehow. this is not indicated in the description. got about an hour in before I had to shut it off. don't buy unless you go to or work at a church!

Didn't finish because I

Couldn't get to the second hour of the book. Seems interesting, but all the Jesus rhetoric getting shoved down my throat totally turned me off. If it's a book about leadership, talk about that and shut off the religion crap. All the points can be made without mentioning jesus or god ... so why is it always coming back to that ? Context is important in some exemples, but in this case, it adds nothing to the point and it gets annoying after a while.

Good content but too religious.

Overall some good content but I wish there was a warning on the religious references. I am not a church goer and found a lot of the religious content irrelevant.

Bible quotes do not constitute actionable info

This book should have a disclaimer. For those of us who are not Christians, and therefore will get very little of substance from this work. Either that or the author should unpublish this work and re-write it, replacing the bible verses with information from well known organizational and business thought leaders. I cannot accept a letter written from Paul to the Corinthians a couple thousand years ago as evidence that my behavior in the workplace should change. My gospel is research and best practices. I'm sure the author means well, but he obviously lives in a world where everyone is Christian and therefore feels that this book has a universal appeal. For those of us who are not, it feels like we have been cheated.

Challenging what leadership looks like

Honestly, what really helped me from this book is being able to understand that my identity is and never will be in a title. Everything comes from your influence and we need to understand what submission looks like in order to lead well. When you know who you are as a leader apart from any titles and authority, then you realize the very things that need to be worked on in order to grow. This book helped me see my leaders differently and really changed everything for the positive! This book is a must read for those that struggle with being a leader when they have don’t have a title, etc.

A Voice Worth Hearing

I am not Christian. By any means. I grew up protestant, but that ended quickly--like age 7. I don't believe in organized religion by any stretch of the imagination, but I do believe in spirituality.

I also have read/listened to an ungodly amount of self-dev books.

Those two things being said, this is a great book. It is very Christian, and Mr. Scroggins--who is some kind of pastor at a huge church in Georgia, IIRC--quotes the bible persistently and at length.

Normally when I hear this kind of stuff you've lost me. I'm done. But Scroggins imbues his message with more than enough practical and secular advice that it's easy enough to side-step the Christian message here.

For me, what worked, was simply acknowledging his Christian beliefs as a way of making sense of certain management principles, and it worked for me to listen to the Christian parables without feeling the need to convert back to the religion.

The actual meat of this book is in Scroggins impressive understanding of the attitudes and practices one needs to effect change from any position within an organizational hierarchy. He knows his stuff, and believe it or not, a megachurch is a great example of an organizational hierarchy. It is one that is built, perhaps even more so than a corporation or business, on the strength of community and social connection--so it serves its purpose as an accurate backdrop for professional development.

If you are Christian and looking to make more of a difference from within the organizations that you are a part of, this is a must buy.

If you are secular or of another spiritual persuasion, and looking to learn how to best leverage your influence even when you lack the specific title to seemingly do so directly, this is still a wise purchase. Just don't let the Christian themes overburden you.

Misnamed Book, Disappointing Content without Practicality

This book should really be named “Why to Lead When You’re Not in Charge.” Listening the first few chapters I kept waiting for the author to actually get to the meat. He spent the whole time persuading the reader why it is a good thing to take initiative to lead when not in charge, but the thing is, I believe most readers already agree it is a good thing and that’s why we picked up this book. We are looking to learn the “how.” Disappointingly, I completed the book and the author offered no practical tips on how to do that and really just spent the whole book’s length to explain the “why,” which is why I think the book was misnamed. If you don’t think it’s a good thing to lead, pick up this book. The author will fervently and passionately persuade you with all the benefits, but if you want to learn how to actually do it, this book offers no help in any practicality unfortunately.

Wasn't what I expected, but pleasantly surprised.

I purchase the book thinking it was another cold exploration of leadership in a business environment. In truth it is a collection of sermons on leadership. You get the feeling that the author is giving a lecture rather than reading from the book. And yes it is a sermon. He quotes scripture and uses Jesus as an example of leadership. But please do not let that dissuade you from buying this book. The message is fantastic. Something we all can use.
The only issue is some sound tech/editing errors that you won't even remember by the end of the book.

This is a sermon not a book about Leadership.

This book is more of a sermon than a book about leadership. Disappointed. I wanted to listen about Leadership not go to church.

Restart!

What did you love best about How to Lead When You're Not in Charge?

It was easily listenable. It is from a Christian perspective but not overwhelming nor were there opinions forced on you. Scroggins life is in ministry and he does a great job on giving his perspective on leadership which is a Christian perspective. It is non offensive for a non Christian,--no fire and brimstone preaching, --it is a holistic look at work. Leadership books don't necessarily include the spiritual aspect of work. The perspective is founded in purpose and developing oneself to 100%. Where do you belong? I felt the book speaks to those who are younger who might not know how to behave or take action. It also speaks to those who are possibly stagnant in their career. It is a helpful guide to a jump start and look for a perspective shift.

What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Lead When You're Not in Charge?

I think in certain parts he deals with acceptance of the situation that is not going anywhere. Aims at diplomacy. Self evaluation and owning your part.

Have you listened to any of Clay Scroggins and Gabe Wicks ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laughed

Any additional comments?

It would be nice to hear how he deals with extreme and very difficult situations. Like glass ceilings or discrimination gender bias. Not looking at very difficult issues did not take away from the book at all, it was just not in the scope of the book.

Good message but REALLY preachy

I appreciated the message of this book, but I couldn't stick with it long enough to get any technique ideas for the apparent point of the book. That is because a few chapters in he starts to go deep into preaching fundamentalist religious views. Unfortunate. By the way I am Christian.

Religious Based

The book is mainly religious based, which is fine, but I would not have chosen the book had I known. The preview nor the book details portrayed this to be the case, which I feel is very misleading.
