Subtitle: Practical, Intentional Tools for Developing Leaders

Intentional character development for leadership that lasts.

Most leaders fail at the pinnacle of their influence, not because of a lack of leadership skills but rather due to character flaws. It's character - not years of experience - that counts for lasting leadership impact.

Drawing from more than thirty years of discipling and mentoring emerging leaders, author Tom Yeakley has written this hands-on tool to equip current leaders, especially young leaders, to intentionally develop positive character traits for sustainable leadership influence.

Teaching, application exercises, and Bible study on ten essential character qualities make this practical handbook a must-have for those involved in discipleship and mentoring. The fruit will be a new generation of Kingdom leaders who lead with integrity, maturity, and wisdom.


  1. Love: The Cornerstone of Kingdom Character
  2. Integrity: Who You Are When You Think You Are Alone
  3. Humility: Discovering the Doorway to Greatness
  4. Servanthood: Are You a Servant Who Leads or a Leader Who Serves?
  5. Purity: It's More Than Just Saying No
  6. Faith: Trusting the Promises of God
  7. Patience: When God's Timing Doesn't Fit Your Schedule
  8. Self-Control: Life Is More Than Self-Gratification
  9. Teachability: Becoming a Lifelong Learner
  10. Courage: Finding Your Confidence and Security in God

There are many books that focus on leadership skills but few that teach the important character qualities of successful leadership. Growing Kingdom Character  is rooted in the Bible and is written by a man who practices what he has written. This book will be valuable for those currently in leadership and for those aspiring to a leadership role. - Jerry Bridges, author of The Pursuit of Holiness, Respectable Sins and Trusting God

This book emphasizes that leadership is not a matter of ability but rather character. My prediction is that this book will be mightily used by all of us who want to leave a legacy of godly families and ministries. - Dr. Erwin Lutzer, senior pastor, Moody Church, Chicago
