Pastor Marc Royster shares leadership methodology in his latest book, Leadership and Management B.I.A.S.: How Your Behavior, Integrity, Authority, and Standards Impact Those Around You.
Royster developed a clever acronym for bias, a noun commonly associated with prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair. Royster instead defines behavior, integrity, authority, standards as leadership tenets necessary to assess one’s leadership perspective.
The book is written in four-parts with each representing an individual bias trait and using personal narratives, data and biblical principles. The end result is a creative and simple path to improving one’s leadership methods and management skills.
A Gulf War veteran, Pastor Royster believes it is essential to have a holistic approach to leadership. He compares his own academic pedigree, military career and private sector employee training to discipleship relative to pastoral work. Royster identified that the necessary language to develop people across disciplines is different, yet similar in execution.
The Pentecostal Assemblies of the World, Inc., endorsed Royster’s publication. “Readers are certain to be blessed and inspired,” said Ruth Newton, director of public relations. “With an individual that has ventured into varied arenas via human resources, Pastor Royster’s new twist on bias considers the whole person. Through literature, he helps others be better than they were yesterday.
