Charlie Brill
This book goes in depth to the dynamics of multi-cultural teams from the dean of missions at Fuller Seminary. He brings great case studies all anchored in the value of keeping a strong purpose statement and clear communication in all the ways it can get muddled across cultures. He also takes great length to talk about the importance of empowering those you lead to fulfill their calling within the vision of the organization without using power to control them. Excellent book!

Lingenfelter merges biblical relational dynamics to real, cross-cultural, church life – serving one another in humility. Sometimes our own cultural bias and sin nature as Christian leaders blinds and prevents us from experiencing biblical community that truly inspires people, builds trust, and empowers leaders.

Very practical book outlining the need for cross-cultural awareness in leading multi-cultural teams. Fascinating case studies illustrate each chapter.

"This book was one of the books that I needed to read for my Global Leadership class in my MA program. It is an incredible reader as siting one who is a leader in a Cross-Cultural context to be aware and sensitive in their approach of decision-making as well as strategic planning. The premise is not to superimpose an American style of leadership on leaders from other cultures. I had many "aha" moments reading this book and reflecting on past experiences ."
Excellent book. Particularly impressed by how Lingenfelter references his previous works and notes his growth/evolution in thinking on some topics.
Eh. The book could be skimmed down to about 30 pages.
One of the better books on leadership within cross-cultural settings.
