Publisher's Summary

In today's changing business world, leaders face more challenges than ever before, whether from increased competition, new ways of reaching customers, or motivating people.
Leadership by the Book is an exceptional audiobook, brimming with insights, tools, and tactics for becoming a successful leader. Written in the parable format of Ken Blanchard's best-selling The One Minute Manager and Raving Fans, it tells the story of a professor and minister who school a young professional in management skills and ethics. Citing Jesus as a source for practical lessons in effective leadership, the authors explore the concept of "servant leadership" and offer simple strategies for bringing vision and values to any organization. Individuals will learn how to:



Achieve goals without sacrificing character or faith
Inspire and sustain commitment in others to give their best
Build teamwork and celebrate successes
Find personal passion and meaning in work
Sure to be required listening for managers and employees, Leadership by the Book can also be applied in daily life by parents, coaches, entrepreneurs, and community leaders everywhere.

Great book

Great short listen. The story line brings a small group of people together in a real life scenario and shows how leadership is intigrated into every aspect of our life.

Jesus thrown in your face

I didn't like this book. I expected to have new management ideas presented. Perhaps something to help me become a better manager. But, the first thing that comes up something like this:
Managers should take a lesson from the best manager the world has ever known, Jesus of Nazareth.

I don't mind religion, but when I pay for a business advice book, I don't want to be preached a sermon. There may be some business ideas in the book, but make no mistake: This is a book on religion, not on management.
