Barna unveils the results of years of research and hundreds of interviews, and emerges with a new definition of what leadership is--and isn't.

Every leader–whether of a church, business, sports team, or community service group – will inevitably face certain challenges. When we encounter these challenges, we sometimes feel like fish out of water and wonder whether we’ll ever have what it takes to be successful leaders.

In this groundbreaking book, George Barna outlines practical strategies for how you can overcome these struggles to become the effective leader God intends for you to be. Drawing from decades of extensive research, Barna reveals how you can anticipate and navigate through nine challenges that confront most leaders, including these:

- "How do I get people excited about God’s vision for our group?"

- "What is my leadership style, and how can I best work with others?"

- "If I’m suppose to be the leader, why isn’t anyone following me?"

- "Should I ever use conflict to resolve critical issues?"

- "How do I nurture my relationship with God?"

Barna shares the wisdom and experience of thousands of leaders whose paths he has analyzed to help you avoid some common mistakes. With clarity and fresh insight, he communicates helpful suggestions that will enable you to lead people more effectively by blending your faith in Christ with skills and perspectives that are consistent with Scripture and proven in the world.

A Fish Out of Water is a valuable tool for any leader who desires to maximize his or her leadership abilities and to raise the water level for God’s people.
