About the Author

Tod Bolsinger is the vice president for vocation and formation and teaches practical theology at Fuller Theological Seminary. He has also served as senior pastor of San Clemente Presbyterian Church and associate pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood.


"This is my leadership resource of the year for clergy. Pastors have heard the terminology about leadership in the postmodern world: 'trust, ' 'DNA, ' 'alignment, ' 'passion, ' 'team, ' 'credibility, ' 'adaptability, ' etc. But Tod Bolsinger brings clarity and practicality as never before. He goes beyond skillsets to explain the interconnection of technical competence, adaptive capacity and relational congruence. The chapters on relationships and resistance and personal stress and change are especially helpful. There are nuggets of insight throughout that are like trace samples leading to the mother lode of leadership transformation. You may have heard it before, but in this book you will finally get it!"--Tom Bandy, 14th Annual Outreach Resources of the Year, March/April 2017
