Developing Emotionally Mature Leaders: How Emotional Intelligence Can Help Transform Your Ministry by Aubrey Malphurs is a helpful book that examines the relationship between emotional intelligence and leadership. Who we are on the inside manifests itself on the outside, and it is vital that a strong leader is emotionally mature.
I like the idea that you can develop emotionally mature leaders – that their emotional intelligence is not set in stone. The book is a good study on what it means to be a great leader. Readers learn how to assess emotional maturity and look for emotional disorders. The book nicely discusses emotional intelligence in a psychological context while looking at emotional intelligence through a Biblical lens.
