The opportunities for women in leadership both in and outside the church are greater than they ever have been before. However, the leadership gap in the development of women continues to widen. What is holding women back and why are senior leaders still reluctant to fully engage women, especially those in their 20s and 30s?

In JUST LEAD!: A No-Whining, No-Complaining, No-Nonsense Practical Guide for Women Leaders in the Church (Jossey-Bass; 9781118314395;March 2013; available in ebook format) Become the effective woman leader God intended you to be , provides practical leadership help for women to develop skills to lead themselves and others with the character, confidence and authenticity of a godly woman. This book shows what holds women back and then focuses the skills women need to lead others effectively.

Additionally the book:

JUST LEAD! combines empirical research with the authors' stories of their own and other women's experiences to help women successfully navigate the transitions necessary to lead well in church and ministry settings. It challenges women to embrace their identity as leaders and equips them with the skills they need to lead others well.
