I recently had the pleasure to interview Tom Harper. Tom is the CEO of Networld Media Group and serves as a deacon at Southeast Christian Church. He’s also the publisher of BiblicalLeadership.com and wrote Leading From The Lions’ Den: Leadership Lessons From Every Book Of The Bible.
Tom recently released Through Colored Glasses: How Great Leaders Reveal Reality. Through Colored Glasses addresses a leadership challenge identified in Proverbs 16:2: All a person’s ways seem pure to them, but motivates are weighed by the Lord. The book is a fable about Leo Perkins, a man who desires to save his company but deep down he’s more worried about bruising his ego.
I was able to ask Tom about Through Colored Glasses, Biblical truth, and how you can become a better leader. Today, I get to share Tom’s thoughts with you and they’re good! Read more...
