Commitment to honesty and integrity in leadership, and personal accountability of leaders has fallen on hard times. Over the past few decades, headlines have declared the erosion of corporate and individual ethics. Enhancing profits, cooking the books, making bad investments, padding their own pockets at the expense of other stakeholders, and other fraudulent activities have brought about a desperate need to rediscover true leadership. In The Jethro Principle: Rediscovering Leadership, author David Eakin reminds us that we can find all the guiding principles needed for effective, true leadership in the Bible. More than 3,500 years ago, a reasonably obscure man by the name of Jethro laid down an extraordinary and dynamic set of leadership principles for his son-in-law, Moses, to consider. They are nestled in chapter eighteen of the book of Exodus. Self-inventories can aid you in knowing where you fall on a scale of true leadership, help you discover your strengths and weaknesses, and show you how to handle those weaknesses. Have the principles remained relevant after all these years? Are they still applicable in the arena of business and leadership today? The Jethro Principle demonstrates that they are. And they may be even more relevant in today?s fast-paced world.
