Book Review: The 4 Dimensions of Extraordinary Leadership

One quiz has reframed my understanding of the leadership differences in my husband and myself and I cannot thank Jenni Catron enough!  The 4 Dimensions of Extraordinary Leadership presents 4 aspects of leadership heart, mind, strength and soul which ultimately work together to bring any leader from ordinary to extraordinary.

Catron’s combination of secular and church leadership experiences along with her extensive network of leaders brings together clear explanations of not only why leaders should consider striving for extraordinary leadership, but how to begin the process of growing towards becoming a 4-dimensional leader.

Begin with the Extraordinary Leadership Assessment and I think you will find yourself as surprised as I was at how a few questions could pinpoint a leadership style.  If you are looking for more Propel Book Club is discussing this book!

Each section of leadership is explained thoroughly.  There are then steps to take towards further developing this aspect of leadership.  What I appreciated most though is that there are warnings surrounding each aspect as well.  Anyone can find it hard to self-assess.  Catron’s inclusion of responses from people or thoughts one might have had to be on the lookout for are key to developing each dimension in a healthy way.

As a college ministry leader, I found this book to echo many of the leadership resources I’ve come across with developing millennial generation leaders.  I don’t think that it’s exclusive to that generation, but if you are at a loss as to how to effectively lead millennials, this is a great starting place!!

*In exchange for an honest review of this book I was given a free e-copy for review via Jenni Catron’s launch team.  The opinions expressed are my own.
