This book describes Christ’s leadership qualities and behaviors. The attributes of the mantle, worn by God’s prophets, help us visualize Christlike leadership. Leaders in the home, workplace, church, school, as well as Great Commission believers, need to use Christlike leadership to build-up their people for success and also to prepare them for Christ’s return. The Mantle first describes how God makes leaders – how leaders learn to follow first. It then presents 3 1/2 qualities of leadership: The Servant-Leader; Heart-To-Heart; Wisdom From Above; and Pull Don’t Push. These qualities are also found in the cross of Christ. There are 8 behaviors identified that apply to every area of leadership (i.e. as spouses, parents, grandparents, pastors, deacons, supervisors, foremen, teachers, principals, coaches, and Christian believers making disciples for Christ). These behaviors are: Open to the ideas of others; Building Loyalty; Building up our people’s self esteem; Building unity and family; Good communications and planning; Recognizing and rewarding good performance; Rating performance well; and, Developing a heart for customer service. In each of these, the reader sees Christ’s example through the prophet’s mantle. The mantle, like Christ, provided covering, protection, and comfort. It was an instrument of empowerment. It served and provided freedom, identification and recognition. It helped them through wind and rain storms as Christ brings us through the storms of uncertainty, chaos, change, and broken trust. The mantle concludes with the eternity of Christ’s leadership – the same yesterday, today, and forever.
