I've always enjoyed serving on boards, work, symphony, church, school, HOA etc. The insights in his grey boxes throughout the book are important tools for your quote box and selection process for building teams anywhere. Buy it and keep it in your brief case. ...more

This is an excellent book for church leaders to read. Lots of input on how to evaluate your church and how to positively impact change in order to achieve the mission Christ has given your church.
