Author, leadership expert and former law enforcement executive Dr. Merle Switzer will speak about boldly leading a business, organization or work team through Christ-centered principles at the quarterly luncheon of the Christian Business Roundtable, set for Friday, Feb. 1.
Switzer will share teachings from his recent book, “Bold Leadership: Biblical Principles for Marketplace Impact,” and will sell and sign copies of his book afterward. Attendees will learn how executives from companies including Hobby Lobby, EMC Corporation, Correct Craft, HP and others integrate and demonstrate bold leadership.
Switzer is a leadership consultant, coach and author with a doctorate in strategic leadership. He has been an adjunct professor at William Jessup University and a senior fellow with WJU’s Public Policy Institute. Previously, he spent 28 years with the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department, half of which was at the mid and executive levels.
In “Bold Leadership,” Switzer interviewed more than 70 notable Christian business leaders around the country, gleaning their business advice and compiling it into a digest of biblically based values that will help businesspeople of all backgrounds set their spiritual compass and improve their leadership.
In its review, Amazon.com said, “Bold leaders actively collaborate with God by embracing Biblical principles that can dramatically transform their leadership and impact. These leaders are men and women who are living their faith successfully in a world that seems increasingly hostile.”
“Merle Switzer’s book is a must for any business leader who struggles with balancing their belief with their business,” said Aric Resnicke, founder of Christian Business Roundtable. “His words and life’s journey encourages, inspires and challenges us to trust God as the only true business adviser.”
