When you're working "above the line," you're in your unique success zone--leading with excellence and character in the way that best fits your strengths. Leadership above the Line provides tools to help readers find success in their work and personal relationships by better understanding their own tendencies. It reveals which "above the line" behaviors are most productive and shows how to avoid destructive "below the line" attitudes. Using Jesus as the model of the ideal balanced leader, Sumner offers practical tips readers can use to incorporate above-the-line strengths into everyday life.
