Making Room for Leadership is both practical and a superb study of the gift of power for leaders

Making Room for Leadership is both practical and a superb study of the gift of power for leaders. Read it slowly and prayerfully. It will transform the way you lead. Peter Scazzero, author of The Emotionally Healthy Church). For when God modeled leadership for us he did it by sending his Son in the flesh, coming into space and time in an embodied way. If we are going to lead like Jesus, then we too must know how to use the power of space and body in a way that empowers others. This is an important book, breaking new ground and speaking biblically and practically to a blind spot in our leadership. In every chapter I have learned something valuable.

You don't just lead with your voice and your decisions. You lead with your body. The way you take up space in a room, the way you use or don't use your body in group settings, influences others. And all of us hold power to lead in our bodies. Yet, pastor and spiritual director MaryKate Morse contends, most of us are unaware of the ways we do or can use our bodies to influence others. Some of us cower in the corner, trying to hide. Others try to speak but are never heard. Still others are the focal point as soon as they walk in a room. What makes the difference? And how can we learn to lead in our own individual way with confidence? In Making Room for Leadership Morse explores different types of power in the body, delineating how each type can be used for good or for harmhighlights how people gain and give leadership in group settingshelps you identify the kind of power you as a unique individual hold Throughout, Christ's use of power serves as the guide for how to lead in ways that are life-giving and empowering to others. We all can lead. We all have some kind of power in us. Once we become aware of our influence, we can direct it toward good, toward building others up. Doing just that in these pages, Morse helps you learn to do the same in the places you live, move and have your being.

Docente leiderschap en geestelijke formatie op het George Fox Evangelical seminarie in Portland, Oregon MaryKate Morse stichtte eerder 2 kerken met leiderschapsteams. Voor haar boek Making Room for Leadership concentreert ze zich op de aspecten power, space & influence. Je leidt niet met je stem en beslissingen, maar vooral met je lichaam. De manier waarop je je beweegt in de fysieke, sociale en geestelijke ruimte maakt of kraakt je optreden. Morse verkent in het boek de diverse ruimten en laat met voorbeelden hoe leiders overkomen en wat de reacties van omstanders, publiek en volgelingen zijn. Macht en invloed zijn in elke omstandigheid boeiende factoren, en zeker in christelijke kerken en kringen. Het maakt nogal uit of je vanuit positie, autoriteit, dienstbaarheid, bewust of onbewust gebruik van lichaamstaal en dergelijke handelt. De schrijfster ontnuchtert het idee dat servant leadership gelijk zou zijn aan continu de onderste weg gaan, kortom vloerkleed voor ieder ander worden. Het leven van Jezus Christus, aan wie het concept van servant leadership in veel andere boeken wordt ontleend, heeft ook de aspecten van macht/kracht en invloed en niet alleen dat van door dienstbaar te zijn een voorbeeld stellen voor zijn discipelen.
Als je al diverse recente leiderschapsboeken hebt gelezen, biedt Making Room for Leadership ook veel herkenning. Verder schenkt ze gelukkig veel aandacht aan het delen van leiderschap en principes om te voorkomen dat leiderschap op een 'lonely at the top', niet voor kritiek openstaand, solistisch mensenwerk wordt.

Morse has written an original and insightful book about the use of power in relationships within the body of Christ. Her analysis is grounded in an appreciation for "the physical nature of leadership," given that we are all embodied and so relate to each other. The chapter on the ethics of power, called "Holding the Dynamite," describes four kinds of power: social, role, expert and character. Power is a socially constructed reality, i.e., people in a group have power because we give it to them. Her discussion of the factors that cause us to give over power and how we choose to whom we hand it off is enlightening. Often people who abdicate their power as part of a system do so because they are content to delegate it to someone whom they perceive as suitable for leadership because of the amount of "space" the other takes up with body language and behavior - their "presence." She writes from the premise that power is a gift of God meant to be shared; thus for a body to be healthy, each member has to own and make good use of its power for the overall direction of the body.

I most enjoyed her insights in the excellent chapter on the interaction between Simon the Pharisee, Jesus, and the sinner woman who washes and anoints Jesus' feet. Morse explains the entire narrative through the customary hospitality rituals and the moves made by Simon to win honor and avoid shame. She shows how Jesus consistently used his power to restore honor to those who, like the sinful woman, have lost it, and to expose those who, like Simon, misuse power to retain or gain honor for themselves. Jesus exercised authentic servant leadership through the wise stewardship of power to build and expand the kingdom of God by restoring people to honor and usefulness. The Middle Eastern "limited goods" view of the economy affected the society's view of power - because only a certain amount of resources were available, those who had more than their share were expected to ensure that there was enough for everyone. This duty of hospitality should characterize our interactions in the body of Christ, especially in the way we use power to include and honor those members whose functions have been limited, excluded or devalued. In contrast to the traditional Middle Eastern view, a western, "unlimited goods" economic perspective also influences present-day views about power. The western Church tends to see power as an unlimited commodity that is earned by hard work. Accordingly, those who have it have a right to it and are consumer-minded in their thinking about using it as a resource. They may think that if others want it, they can go out and earn their own, as there is plenty of it there for the taking. However, access to power is usually not equitable or healthy in our society. It is important for Christians to recognize and consider the subtle (or even overt) effects of this kind of thinking on our interactions with others in order to align our expectations of power and behavior with the attitude of Christ. Those who have power can learn to share it constructively, and those who tend to abdicate it can learn to participate so that all members of the body can function in the healthiest way for the well-being of the whole.

We don't always know how we are perceived in the world, and this book does a great job of helping you look at the subtle ways that you might be undercutting your own leadership. I highly recommend!
