News Flash – Promontory Press is pleased to announce the publication of our second book by Dr. Phil Johnson, entitled Lead Like a Heretic: How to challenge the status quo – and thrive. The book is scheduled for North American release on Tuesday, May 30.
In his 2016 best-selling leadership book, The Compassionate Conspiracy: A Field Guide to Changing the World, Dr. Phil Johnson redefined “conspirators” as “radical global servant-leaders” who work together to tackle the biggest problems we face today.
Now, in Lead Like a Heretic, he revolutionizes the meaning of “heretic” and confronts today’s global leadership crisis: the failure of leaders at all levels to engage, energize, and empower their followers. This book explores the heretical process of daring leadership and change, providing famous examples from business, government, education, sports, professional associations, and non-profit organizations.
From Dan DeVos, Chairman & CEO of DP Fox Ventures: “Dr. Phil Johnson writes like he lives – with energy, dedication, compassion and the desire to serve others. He wants every person to become the best they can be. This book will certainly give readers a boost as they face their individual challenges and opportunities.”
Grand Rapids’s own Dr. Phil is an accomplished life and leadership coach to diplomats, major CEO’s and celebrities, as well as an ordained minister and practicing pastor at the New Day Church-on-the-Hill. He has spent many years overseas working in slums from Africa to Southeast Asia to South America and he has participated in major international events such as the United Nations World Peace Conference in Israel in 1999. He has published eight previous books, three commissioned musicals and over a hundred articles.
“According to Dr. Phil, and contrary to popular belief, heretics are extraordinary leaders,” says Doreen Bolhuis, the president of Gymco, Inc. and the co-author of Stop Wishing. Stop Whining. Start Leading. “Throughout his book, Dr. Johnson offers rich and abundant examples of heretics from all walks of life and shares the transforming secrets of their compelling leadership. Read this book and open your mind to heretical thinking!”
Lead Like a Heretic is available for order at Amazon.com and at fine bookstores everywhere.
