In the book LEAD…forGod’s Sake!: A Parable for Finding the Heart of Leadership, a basketball coach befriends the school janitor, who teaches him about reprioritizing his life and focusing on God first. At the end of the book, the coach learns that the janitor is a multimillionaire who owns a cleaning company. But he never forgot where he came from and continued to work full-time as a janitor. His leadership style is a parable of Jesus’s leadership style and an illustration of meekness (Todd Gongwer, LEAD … for God’s Sake!: A Parable for Finding the Heart of Leadership [Carol Stream, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, 2011]).
