Becoming a Better Leader Starts with a Transformed Inner Life

Do you feel too overwhelmed to enjoy life, unable to sort out the demands on your time? Are you doing your best work as a leader, yet not making an impact? Have you ever felt stuck, powerless to change your environment?

In The Emotionally Healthy Leader, bestselling author Peter Scazzero shows leaders how to develop a deep, inner life with Christ, examining its profound implications for surviving stress, planning and decision making, building teams, creating healthy culture, influencing others, and much more.

The Emotionally Healthy Leader contains:


Concise assessments for leaders and teams to measure their leadership health
Practical, proven strategies that have been developed over a 28-year period spent both in the local church and in equipping leaders around the world
Helpful applications of how to face your shadow, lead out of your marriage or singleness, slow down, and embrace endings for new beginnings
Going beyond simply offering a quick fix or new technique, The Emotionally Healthy Leader gets to the core, beneath-the-surface issues of uniquely Christian leadership. This book is more than just a book you will read; it is a resource you will come back to over and over again.

    An excellent book, better than Scazzero's earlier Emotionally Healthy Spirituality. This book, written much later, is better written, more grounded in Scripture, and reflects deep, hard won wisdom and...
