Longtime friends and Lead Like Jesus Co-Founders Ken Blanchard and Phil Hodges thought they were on to something good. Ken had successfully studied and taught leadership for years. His writings on the topic of leadership (including The One Minute Manager and Situational Leadership) led him to become one of Amazon’s Top 25 Bestsellers of All Time. Phil Hodges served as a leader in corporate America with US Steel and Xerox, serving as a labor union negotiator. Initially through Phil’s influence, Ken gradually came to understand the overwhelming need for Jesus to take the lead in his own life.
As a new believer, Ken began to study the Bible and became fascinated with how Jesus led perfectly in every way. Jesus transformed twelve ordinary, unlikely individuals into the first generation of Christian leaders, launching a movement that continues to affect the course of world history some two thousand years later.
Inspired by a new vision of influential leadership, Ken and Phil co-founded Lead Like Jesus to inspire and equip people to lead like Jesus.
The story of Lead Like Jesus in India began with two friends, Deepak Martin and Mohan Patnaik, who attended the LLJ Asia Pacific launch in Singapore, in October 2009. Both of them felt that Jesus offers the greatest leadership model to the world. They took a decision to begin hosting workshops and sharing what they have learned.
Today, Lead Like Jesus in India is a movement that promises the transformational leadership Model – because our Model is Jesus, the greatest Leader of all time. We focus on heart-centered, transformative leadership that equips leaders to effectively impact their own spheres of influence.
Lead like Jesus India is a registered society in Hyderabad, India.
