The Nehemiah Blueprint

How Faith-Focused Leaders Can Overcome Challenges, Return to Purpose, and Build Lasting Impact.
Most faith-focused leaders set out in their careers with great intentions to help others and courageously work to provide lasting solutions in a world in need. However, the challenges that today’s leaders face have created an environment of immense pressure. Challenges that are almost unfathomable. Problems that seem borderline unsolvable. It seems inevitable that at some point, leaders feel burnt, bent, broken, and even uprooted as they endure an environment of constant adversity.

Although our modern-day problems may seem unique, we can look to history and discover that the answers may be right in front of us. One such example is the story of Nehemiah, found in the Old Testament of the Bible. A powerful story of insurmountable challenges, where one man took action and changed the course of history.

Nehemiah’s leadership example provides a tremendous roadmap for today’s leaders. The Nehemiah Blueprint unpacks 8 attributes that Nehemiah portrayed that fueled his leadership:

Passion & Calling | Courage | Wisdom & Discernment
Preparation | Humility | Vision | Action | Perseverance

If you’re looking for a tangible roadmap to overcome challenges, return to purpose, and build lasting impact, The Nehemiah Blueprint provides a compelling case and relevant suggestions for you to lead well no matter what season you are in.
