Following the example of Jesus, a "CEO" who built a disorganized "staff" of twelve into a thriving enterprise, a handbook for corporate success details a fresh, profound approach to motivating and managing others that translates to any business.

I'm a believer in Christ. I study God's word daily. This book showed me how Christ's life while here on Earth, is an example of how to effectively manage. Everything from resources to people. It is a REALLY good book. I like the way that it is written. I can't call them chapters, but more like sections. Each section such as "Relationships" have short sub-sections that are examples of that section heading. It's not overwhelming to read. You can actually read a sub-section a day and absorb it and hopefully use these concepts. I was recommended this book by a friend at work. She worked for the Sheriff's Dept. and said this book spread like wildfire throughout the organization. I can see why.
Note: It takes a lot of strength to be a leader and it is a challenge to use these concepts and apply them not only at work, but in the home. After all this book is nothing new. These are concepts that are already in the Bible. This just relates it within the...
I read LBJ's first edition of this book when it was initially introduced -- I really don't know where to start. This book is in a class by itself. When the book was introduced, I was working in corporate America--the everyday rat race and moving fast. I was also an ordained Church Minister. Once I saw and read some of the content, I immediately began purchasing copies for ministerial and corporate colleagues. Laurie Beth's insight, her articulation of this insight and the relevance of the material is awe inspiring. Additionally, laying it out as sort of "vitamins for the day" was brilliant. I gave back-pack copies to my children to keep with them during their college days. More than 10-years later, I still read this book once or twice yearly; I use it in leadership and ministerial training; and now I will be using it as one of our texts in Young Mens Mentoring venue and with a youth group. I recently ordered a copy for a friend who is rebounding from some devastating...
This is one of the best Christian business books I have ever read. It's short, sweet, and to the point with power-packed truth. It's not so much of a "how to" do business book. It's more of a "why" or "what is my values" as a Christian entrepreneur and business leader. I used it as a daily devotional! The best part are the thought provoking questions at the end of each chapter. Those questions really hit home. I actually went through the book once, and then again, and then a third time taking notes and answering the questions for myself. And then I am going to go through it again with people I work with to help them out.
