Leaders who rely on their performance as the source of their worth and identity will find themselves depleted on their self-made performance treadmill. The chapter discusses how role internalization can be lethal particularly for those who worship the god of performance.

An accurate understanding of God’s contraconditional love in Christ would enable Christian leaders to have a robust perception of the dynamic between leadership being (i.e., being accepted just as we are in Christ) and leadership doing (i.e., doing as much as can for Christ).
