Product Description

The Magnificent Exit is a book about transitional leadership. Through personal stories, professional case studies, biblical exegesis, character studies, and spiritual insights, Neil Hart introduces the reader to a transformative principle of leadership: the best leaders know when to leave, which is far earlier than usually thought. Here are just a few of the key principles explored in the book:
  • The inertia created by poor leadership handoffs is one of the biggest leadership problems.
  • Jesus turned the task of building the church over to others and then left the scene, serving as an example of transitional leadership.
  • God’s vision for us as leaders is to think generationally.
  • The best leaders envision their organizations without them in the picture.
  • The best leaders know how to avoid “Founder President Syndrome.”
  • A good transition involves both selecting the right successor and not waiting too long to leave.
  • Key quote: “Organizations should exist for people, and people for the mission and kingdom of God. Leaders exist to serve people in that mission, to envision them, to encourage them, to course-correct, and to release them.”
