Reagin’s The Life Giving Leader takes on leadership from a whole new dimension that is authentic, organic, and flawlessly refreshing. Birthed from a place of experience and humility, the wisdom offered cuts to the deep, removing the flesh of falsehood, and pointing leaders to the  Christ-like model that gives life to those who look up to them to seek direction both personally and professionally, as well as in other areas of life. Reagin takes the leader through realistic steps that show what true leadership is all about, highlighting the character/attitudes that build leaders into people that can be trusted and followed. The most important truth Reagin emphasizes is the truth that the best kind of leadership is drawn from the place of authentic self; a leader leading from their truest self is bound to give life to others and inspire that same authenticity in people. Reagin provides stories, insights and practices that guide any leader to fully develop their natural gifts and talents, and invites them to put away what will sabotage their leadership. He further hints on the attributes that increase their positive influence, breaking each point down into simple nuggets that can be easily comprehended and practiced.

A stunningly poignant and deeply insightful material for great leadership development!
