In his book, Practicing Greatness, Reggie McNealpracticing-greatness1 explores seven disciplines of extraordinary spiritual leaders. He believes that spiritual leaders “practice greatness” when they practice these seven disciplines. Although his book can benefit any believer who is striving to improve, McNeal mainly targets spiritual leaders.

The book is well written and on target, but don’t expect clever words or catchy phrases. McNeal takes a straightforward approach to a discussion of the importance of the following seven disciplines for spiritual leaders:

  1. Self-awareness
  2. Self-mangagement
  3. Self-development
  4. Mission
  5. Decision-making
  6. Belonging
  7. Aloneness
