Anthony Pangilinan strongly believes in purposeful leadership, maximizing your enjoyment in life and pleasing God in the process. So this book might be a leadership book but it is also more than that.Mr. Pangilinan stated that there is a specific calling for everyone where we can provide the greatest contribution and receive the highest personal fulfillment. He laid out a simple guide for us to go about this.
Introducing the C.E.N.T.S framework
C– Your place of Contribution : In a team or an activity, what is your contribution or role?
E– Your seat of Excellence: Where have you “excelled” in your lifetime?
N– Your area of Natural Gifting: Where are you a natural? What can you do well without formal training and, yet, you are able to hold own among the best?
T– Your Turn-Ons: What are your interests? your desires? your emotional longings? passions? your natural “highs”?
S-Your discernment on Spirit-Leading: Is how you are doing your work/activity pleasing God?
Anthony Pangilinan said we are all called to lead and to lead more effectively and responsibly. He also made a work page at the end of the book using the C.E.N.T.S. framework in order to be more self-aware of one’s area of gifting. C.E.N.T.S. can also be used for decision-making,to test your team to affirm their contribution as well as lead them to the right position and also for improving relationships.
At the back of the book, Anthony Pangilinan signed it for Mar:
