  • Black In Blue


    Whatever your positions on Black Lives Matter, defunding the police, and equity in law enforcement, former police chief Carmen Best shares the leadership lessons she learned as the first Black woman to lead the Seattle Police Department–a personal insider story that will challenge your assumptions on how to move the country forward.

    Chief Carmen Best has spent the last 28 years as a member of a major big-city police force, an institution where minorities and women have historically found it especially difficult to succeed. She defied the odds and became the first Black woman to lead the Seattle Police Department.

    In her tenure, she was successful in bringing significantly more diversity to the force. However, when the city council cut her budget in the midst of months of protests against police violence across the nation, she had no choice but to step aside. Without the city’s support, she felt she wouldn’t be able to continue changing the status quo of the police force from within.

    Throughout her career, Chief Best has learned lessons that those coming up behind her can benefit from. In this book, she will use her story to share those urgent lessons. Readers will read about:

    *How Chief Best grew up to believe in the change she set out to create.

    *Her early days in the police force, including lessons from the academy and her time on patrol.

    *How she progressed in her career within a primarily white law enforcement culture and the events that led to her becoming Chief.

    *How she built her team and overcame the politics involved in her high-level position until the call for defunding came.

    Carmen Best teaches readers the core qualities and mindset to persevere and rise through the ranks, even within a workplace whose culture and leadership must be challenged, and policies changed on the way to achieving that vision. Her story is one of motivation and serves as a masterclass in guiding principles for anyone striving to serve their community and rise to the highest echelon of success.

  • Faith After Ferguson


    Five years after the events that led to the Ferguson, Missouri, uprising, Ferguson and Faith author Leah Gunning Francis reconnects with the faith leaders who took to the streets to protest the police shooting of an unarmed 17- year-old black man and the racially tinged events in St. Louis and across the United States. In Faith After Ferguson, Francis weaves these first-person accounts with her own journey of activism in hopes of encouraging the reader to consider racial justice not just as an intellectual exercise, but to be awakened to the multiplicity of ways that racism shows up in the world and be inspired to act. Francis also reflects on the traumatic impact of the four years under the Trump administration, and the more recent events of racism and white supremacy in the killing of George Floyd, the presidential election, and the Capitol riots in early January 2021.

  • Innovation Crisis : Creating Disruptive Influence In The Ministry You Lead


    If you aren’t innovating, stagnation isn’t far away.

    Ministry leaders carry the burden of keeping their organizations lean, focused, and relevant. The stakes are especially high for churches and other organizations that fulfill the Great Commission. When souls are on the line, there’s no room for bureaucratic bloat or sustaining a cumbersome infrastructure. It’s up to the leadership-that’s you-to realize where the organization is in maintenance mode and find ways to innovate even when the growth curve has slowed and the team has started to grow complacent.

    Using missions disruptor William Carey as an example, Ted Esler shows how you, too, can innovate in ways that change the ministry landscape. Esler will help you keep an eye on your eccliosystem-the ecclesial ecosystem in which you exist. You’ll learn about the four stages of organizational culture-disrupting, innovating, sustaining, and stagnating-and gain strategies for staying in that sweet spot where innovations keep coming and stagnation can’t take hold.

    The gospel of Jesus Christ never grows stale. Don’t let your ministry ever forget it!

  • Big Results Leadership


    The success of any leadership is all too often pointed to the characteristics of good leadership. The reality is that many of us are fully aware of the qualities of a good leader. Book after book in the pastoral community may light the path to good leadership but rarely gives us the markers that allow us to discern if we are still moving in the right direction.

    Big Results: Leadership tackles that obstacle by guiding our future leaders in their early steps but also points to the results of that kind of leadership. The main take away from this read is that God-centered leadership always yields big results.

  • Discipled Leader : Inspiration From A Fortune 500 Executive For Transformin


    Preston Poore has spent decades in corporate America. Despite all the excellent advice he was given for growing in leadership, there was something missing: a way to bring his Christian beliefs to bear in his professional life, not just his personal life. So Preston sought his own answer to how his faith could impact his management of hundreds of employees.

    What he discovered was this: the first step wasn’t adjusting his leadership style. Instead, he needed to let God change him before he could effect real change in his workplace. And in order to model discipleship to his team, he needed to first be discipled by the Spirit. Here, in the day-to-day practice of being a disciple of Jesus Christ, Poore found where his faith and exceptional leadership intersect.

    Through personal stories, biblical principles, and hands-on workplace guidance, Poore offers readers a unique look at this seldom-discussed connection. He challenges struggling leaders to engage in the hard work of daily discipleship. And he charges experienced leaders to return to the fundamentals of their faith, encouraging them to disciple other Christians with leadership potential.

    For anyone wrestling with how to bring faith to the workplace, whether it be a cubicle or a boardroom, Discipled Leader reveals that leadership doesn’t begin behind the desk–it begins in the soul.

  • Lead Like Christ


    As a Christian, does your leadership approach look any different from that of those who don’t follow Christ? In the Bible, God showed us what leadership looks in his kingdom, and at first a lot of it seems upside-down. The first shall be last. The master shall be the servant. But how can we apply these counterintuitive truths in our own world today? The first step, it turns out, is to become a good follower–a disciple of Christ who always lets him take the lead.

    Rather than focusing on the nuts and bolts of management, Lead Like Christ looks closely at how leaders can better imitate the greatest leader of all. Looking to the example of Christ, regardless of the setting, is the only way to create the relationships, loyalty, and cohesion you need to lead well. This step of humility and obedience is not easy, but it will result in powerful, long-lasting change in both your own leadership role today as well as in God’s eternal kingdom.

  • Becoming Trader Joe


    Build an iconic shopping experience that your customers love-and a work environment that your employees love being a part of-using this blueprint from Trader Joe’s visionary founder, Joe Coulombe.

    Infuse your organization with a distinct personality and culture that draws customers in a way that simply competing on price cannot.

    Joe Coulombe founded what would become Trader Joe’s in the late 1960s and helped shape it into the beloved, quirky food chain it is today. Realizing early on that he could not compete and win by playing the same game his bigger competitors were playing, he decided to build a store for educated people of somewhat modest means. He brought in unusual products from around the world and promoted them in the Fearless Flyer, providing customers with background on how they were sourced and their nutritional value. He also gave the stores a tiki theme to reinforce the exotic trader ship concept with employees wearing Hawaiian shirts.

    In this way, Joe laid down a blueprint for other business owners to follow to build their own unique shopping experience that customers love, and a work environment that employees love being a part of.

    In Becoming Trader Joe, Joe shares the lessons he learned by challenging the status quo and rethinking the way a business operates. He shows readers of all types:

    *How moving from a pure analytical approach to a more creative, problem-solving approach can drive innovation.

    *How finding an affluent niche of passionate customers can be a better strategy than competing on price and volume.

    *How questioning all aspects of the way you do business leads to powerful results.

    *How to build a business around your values and identity.

  • Clarity In Crisis


    Meet your next crisis head on and come through it stronger than ever by using the hard-earned strategies and core principles from Marc Polymeropoulos, a highly decorated, 26-year operations officer with the CIA.

    Marc Polymeropoulos has had to live with the consequences of decisions made under the most high-stress circumstances you can imagine as a senior intelligence officer in the CIA, retiring from his 26 years of service as one of the CIA’s most decorated field officers.

    Though your crisis situations may not entail international counter terrorism as Marc’s did, in our age of social media and a 24-hour news cycle, the consequences of mishandling a crisis can escalate quickly, leaving irreparable damage to a company’s reputation and bottom line in its wake.

    In Clarity in Crisis, Marc shares how true leaders need to lead in and through times of crisis and thrive under conditions of ambiguity, rather than message their way out or duck from hard decisions. Far from mere theory, Marc outlines the unique and specific mindset and strategies he himself practiced and honed throughout his remarkable career.

    Clarity in Crisis provides proven strategies and core principles that leaders can apply to meet any crisis head on and lead through it, including:

    *The critical elements to managing crisis, such as knowing who you can always count on to execute under high-stress situations.

    *An understanding of the importance of following and stressing key fundamentals and avoiding shortcuts that often do more harm than good.

    *Implementation guidance from the Mad Minute section at the end of each chapter that summarizes key points and action items you can begin applying right away.

    *How to gain confidence that you are ready for the next crisis, wherever it comes from, and embrace less than ideal situations with no fear, using the core principles outlined in these pages to find unshakeable clarity in crisis and lead when others want to flee.

  • 5 Levels Of Leadership


    Fuel success and grow your team at every level of leadership.

    True leadership isn’t a matter of having a certain job or title. In fact, being chosen for a position is only the first of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To become more than the boss people follow only because they are required to, you have to master the ability to invest in people and inspire them. To grow further in your role, you must achieve results and build a team that produces. You need to help people to develop their skills to become leaders in their own right. And if you have the skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership-where experience will allow you to extend your influence beyond your immediate reach and time for the benefit of others.

    The 5 Levels of Leadership are:
    1. Position – People follow because they have to.

    2. Permission – People follow because they want to.

    3. Production – People follow because of what you have done for the organization.

    4. People Development – People follow because of what you have done for them personally.

    5. Pinnacle – People follow because of who you are and what you represent.
    Through humor, in-depth insight, and examples, internationally recognized leadership expert John C. Maxwell describes each of these stages of leadership. He shows you how to master each level and rise up to the next to become a more influential, respected, and successful leader.

  • Hinge Moments : Making The Most Of Life’s Transitions


    In life we have moments in time in which we have an opportunity before us to make a change or to respond to a situation.

    According to Michael Lindsay, president of Gordon College, what follows these instances will depend intrinsically on the decisions we make and the actions we take. These are what he calls hinge moments–opportunities to open (or close) doors to various pathways of our lives. Lindsay maintains that getting these moments right can change our lives for the better, and getting them wrong can pose problems for years to come: Some transitions have a disproportionate impact on our happiness, our contribution to society, and our family’s well-being. In these pages Lindsay shares faith-based stories of success and failure from his ten-year study of 550 PLATINUM leaders. He has charted seven phases of transition, providing both practical and spiritual insights for making the most of each stage. In uncertain and tumultuous times, there is no better advantage than wisdom gained early.

  • Ayuda Trabajo Con Personas


    Sabemos que el liderazgo no es exclusivo de las oficinas y los presupuestos multimillonarios; algunos de los mejores lideres son los mentores y tecnicos que se sienten mas comodos tras bastidores. Pero, y si ser un lider eficaz no se trata solo de tener ideas innovadoras y altos niveles de productividad? Que pasa si convertirse en un gran lider se trata mas de priorizar la conciencia y las habilidades de las personas, que de la produccion y el desempeo?

    !Ayuda! Trabajo con personas no es un libro sobre la teoria del liderazgo, sino un manual sobre como conectarse con las personas e influir en ellas para siempre.

    Con su caracteristico relato transparente y facil de relacionarse, Chad Veach utiliza la investigacion moderna y los principios biblicos para alentarlo a que se apoye en su potencial de liderazgo, independientemente de su nivel de influencia o experiencia. En capitulos breves y facilmente digeribles, aborda las tres fases para convertirse en un lider de calidad:
    – Aprender a liderar a la persona mas dificil de la que estara a cargo: usted mismo
    – Reconocer el poder de convertirse en una persona sociable
    – Crear una cultura y un entorno donde la vision compartida del equipo pueda crecer

    Las personas son la parte mas importante de la vida. Aprendamos a liderar como si nos gustaramos el uno al otro.

    We know leadership is not exclusive to corner offices and multimillion-dollar budgets–some of the best leaders are the mentors and technicians who are more comfortable behind the scenes. But what if being an effective leader isn’t just about having innovative ideas and high levels of productivity? What if becoming a great leader is more about prioritizing self-awareness and people skills than production and performance?

    Help! I Work with People is not a book about leadership theory, but rather a handbook on how to connect with people and influence them for good.

    With his signature transparent and relatable storytelling, Chad Veach uses modern research and biblical principles to encourage you to lean into your leadership potential regardless of your level of influence or experience. In short and easily digestible chapters, he addresses the three phases of becoming a quality leader:
    – learning to lead the hardest person you will ever be in charge of–yourself
    – recognizing the power of becoming a people person
    – creating a culture and environment where the team’s shared vision can grow

    People are the most important part of life.

  • Trauma To Triumph


    An organization-wide blueprint outlining the simple steps to successfully navigate through crisis or trauma, giving leaders at every level the guidance they need to create confidence, courage, and enthusiasm in their team-and come out stronger on the other side.

    When leaders navigate a traumatic event the right way, the organization doesn’t just survive. It can be transformed and flourish in ways previously unimagined. And though organizational trauma takes many forms-a pandemic, an economic meltdown, an act of violence, a failed merger, layoffs-events like these don’t have to traumatize leaders and employees, sending everyone into survival mode.

    In Trauma to Triumph Mark Goulston, MD, and Dr. Diana Hendel present a visionary and tactical roadmap to help leaders create stability in the midst of chaos and uncertainty, move productively through a traumatic event, and come out even stronger and better on the other side.

    Here are just a few things you’ll learn:
    *How the survival mechanism manifests in employees and leaders in the midst of trauma.

    *The predictable polarities, dilemmas, tensions, and other patterns that emerge in traumatized organizations-and how to break these cycles.

    *Why lack of clarity in roles and poor communication are so dangerous in times of crisis-and how to avoid these common pitfalls.

    *How leaders can shift to a mindset that helps them create feelings of trust, confidence, respect, and inspiration in employees.

    *Why creating a common language around trauma allows leaders at all levels to share a narrative of safety, confidence, and hope.

    *How to help others overcome resistance to change, adapt as needed, and break out of their competence zone.

    *How to launch a rapid-response process that allows you to control the controllables and create a framework for making better decisions in the throes of crisis.

    *High-impact tactics to help your organization recover and heal in a way a that doesn’t just return to baseline, but transcends it.

    Filled with tools and tactics, Trauma to Triumph isn’t just about being prepared for future crises. It’s also about leading in a new way in the times of stability in between.

  • Lead Like It Matters To God


    Richard Stearns is a leader who has been tested as a CEO in both secular companies and also as the head of one of the world’s largest Christian ministries.

    After stints as CEO of Parker Brothers and then Lenox, Stearns accepted the invitation to leave his corporate career to become the president of World Vision US, where he became the longest serving president in their seventy-year history. During his tenure there he implemented corporate best practices, lowering overheads while tripling revenues. His leadership in calling the American church to respond to some of the greatest crises of our time, notably the HIV and AIDS pandemic, and the global refugee crisis, challenged Christians to embrace a bold vision for compassion, mercy, and justice. In Lead Like It Matters to God, Stearns shares the leadership principles he has learned over the course of his remarkable career. As a leader who has navigated both secular and sacred spaces, Stearns claims that the values Christian leaders embrace in their workplaces are actually more important than the results they achieve–that God is more concerned about a leader’s character than a leader’s success. With wisdom, wit, and biblical teaching, Stearns shares captivating stories of his life journey and unpacks seventeen crucial values that can transform leaders and their organizations. When leaders embody values such as integrity, courage, excellence, forgiveness, humility, surrender, balance, generosity, perseverance, love, excellence, and encouragement, they not only improve their witness for Christ, they also shape institutions, influence culture, improve team performance, and create healthy workplaces where people can flourish. Through this book, Stearns will inspire a new generation of Christian leaders to boldly take their values into their workplaces to tangibly demonstrate the character of Christ, the love of Christ, and the truth of Christ as they live out their faith in full view of others.

  • Leading Things You Didnt Start


    A high-impact leadership coach gives you the tools you need to maximize your influence in a new role, giving you the ability to meet any challenge and take your team, organization, church or company to new heights.

    Tyler Reagin addresses a mission-critical but often overlooked aspect of leadership: healthy upward transition. Most leaders find themselves responsible for organizations, teams, and products that they didn’t launch from the ground up. They step into the middle of established cultures, processes, teams, and goals. It’s from that middle that they must make the most challenging and crucial decisions.

    Through the use of tried-and-true coaching principles and practical case studies with leaders like Buzz Williams, head coach at Texas A&M, and Cheryl Bachelder, former CEO of Popeyes, Reagin helps you maximize your newfound influx of influence and master the intentions of an inheriting leader. Get the strategies you need in order to ask the right questions, motivate the new-to-you-team, identify and attack the right problems, invest your energy in core systems, increase your output, and bring out the best in you and your team.

  • 7 Deadly Sins Of Women In Leadership


    For the first time in modern history, women are making their way into strategic positions of influence and leadership within the church, public, corporate, charity and voluntary sectors, in unprecedented numbers. Women are called by God to flourish in these arenas. However, there are significant external and internal issues that hinder women in leadership in unique ways.

    But if you think this book is only for women, you are gravely mistaken. While women’s entry onto the leadership arena may have been the catalyst to uncover deep-seated issues in leadership culture, the challenges addressed here are not unique to women in leadership alone.

    In 7 Deadly Sins of Women in Leadership, Kate Coleman considers what lies at the root of the many challenges facing today’s leaders–women and men–and proposes ways of dealing with them. Effective leadership starts with you and, based on her 35 years of leadership experience, Kate explains how you can:
    *Overcome limiting self-perceptions
    *Establish boundaries
    *Develop a tailor-made personal vision
    *Cultivate a healthy work/life rhythm
    *Stop being a people-pleaser
    *Learn to confront not collude
    *Be intentional with your inner circle

    Written for every leader from any sector, this proven and practical book will enable you to identify and overcome self-defeating patterns of behavior, in ways that will radically transform your leadership.

  • Starfish And The Spirit


    Leveraging the metaphor Ori popularized in his NYT best-selling book, The Starfish and the Spider, Ori Brafman shows why the distributed structures of starfish organizations are uniquely fit to the church. They can function without a rigid central authority, and their regenerative abilities make them nimbler in reacting to external forces. Seeding starfish networks inside todays churches will prepare the church of tomorrow to be agile while still maintaining the necessary accountability to be effective.

    Rather than advocating the adoption of a starfish structure in place of the hierarchy of the spider, Brafman, along with pastors Lance Ford and Rob Wegner, emphasize the advantages of adapting the structure and order inherent in a spider organization toward a hybrid model–either a Spiderfish approach (leaning toward centralization) or a Starder approach (leaning toward decentralization).

    The Starfish and the Spirit is about creating a culture where church leaders view themselves as curators of a community on mission, not the source of certainty for every question and project. It is about creating a team of humble leaders in the middle of the church, not at the top–leaders who naturally reproduce multiple generations of leaders, from the middle out on mission. Imagine a church led by a team whose gifts and talents are completely unleashed, enabling everyone to show up and step up with all they really are. The joy and vigor coming from the collective strength, intelligence, and skill in the community of leaders not only brings greater potency but better yields for your ministry as well. What would it be like to see this kind of healthy leadership reproduced into the second, third, and fourth generation, on multiple strands?

  • Einsteins Boss : 10 Rules For Leading Genius


    When employees are exceptional, everyday rules no longer apply. In 1933, Albert Einstein fled Nazi Germany for the leafy streets of Princeton, NJ. He would have been welcome anywhere, but Einstein joined the Institute for Advanced Study, bestowing instant credibility on the fledgling research center. Abraham Flexner, the institute’s founder, wasn’t a physicist or mathematician-but he was a gifted administrator. Under his leadership, IAS became a global powerhouse, home to 33 Nobel Laureates, 38 Field Medalists, and myriad winners of the Wolf and MacArthur prizes. The team of thinkers that Flexner assembled produced some of the greatest scientific advances of the 20th century. The man had a knack for leading genius. Einstein’s Boss filters Flexner’s practices through the lens of modern business, where industries from computing to engineering to biotechnology compete for top talent and cutting-edge innovations. Original and insightful, the book explains how to spot the deep thinkers who will transform your business-and reveals 10 rules for guiding them to greatness, including: * Get out of the way: Allow brilliant people ownership of their projects * Shut up and listen: Consider their input openly before reaching conclusions * Turn over the rocks: Be completely transparent-a genius will figure out what you’re hiding anyway * Practice alchemy: Mix complementary minds together for maximum effect * Let the problem seduce: Frame challenges in a way that captures the imagination and draws them toward the goal * Quit chasing squirrels: Guide innovation towards the core mission. Leading people who are smarter than you is no easy task. But for managers who learn to channel brainpower into breakthroughs, the rewards are boundless.

  • 21 Leyes Del Liderazgo En La B


    Todo lo que se sobre el liderazgo lo aprendi de la Biblia

    Cuando el autor best seller John C. Maxwell comenzo a ensear liderazgo a personas en la iglesia, a menudo se sorprendieron. Era obvio que era joven e inexperto, pero las ideas que transmitia parecian ir mas alla de lo que deberia saber. Mas tarde, cuando comenzo a hablar a un publico mas general, la gente pregunto: Donde aprendio usted todo esto?.

  • Leading From The Second Chair


    They say it’s lonely at the top. And it can be even lonelier when you are almost at the top. Church leaders who hold second-chair positions are under tremendous pressure. They are expected to do their jobs and provide leadership but to defer to the top leader too. It’s a demanding balancing act. How can they lead effectively while serving under someone else’s leadership?

    Leading from the Second Chair offers an invaluable resource to leaders who serve in second- (and third- and fourth-) chair roles, enabling them to become more productive, proactive, and fulfilled. The book reveals the paradoxes of second chair leadership. These leaders must be subordinate to the top leader yet lead in their own right. They should be deep in their expertise but wide in perspective. And they must be content in their jobs yet remain enthusiastic about their dreams for the future.

    Mike Bonem and Roger Patterson share their own and others’ experiences of failure and success in this vital role. They offer support and practical advice for reshaping the way second-chair leaders can serve well and improve the overall performance of their church or organization. Leading from the Second Chair equips readers with the positive attitudes, skills, and strategies needed to become powerful leaders who will survive and thrive in God’s service.

  • Sticking Points : How To Get 5 Generations Working Together In The 12 Place


    Updated with new findings on Gen Z!

    With five generations in the workplace at once, there’s bound to be some sticking points. This is the first time in American history that we have five different generations working side-by-side in the workplace: the Traditionalists (born before 1945), the Baby Boomers (born 1946-1964), Gen X (born between 1965-1980), Millennials (born 1981-2001) and Gen Z (born 1996-present). Haydn Shaw, popular business speaker and generational expert, has identified 12 places where the 5 generations typically come apart in the workplace (and in life as well). These sticking points revolve around differing attitudes toward managing one’s own time, texting, social media, organizational structure, and of course, clothing preferences. If we don’t learn to work together and stick together around these 12 sticking points, then we’ll be wasting a lot of time fighting each other instead of enjoying a friendly and productive team.

  • Whats In Your Hand


    After decades of tending sheep, Moses is suddenly thrown into one of the greatest and most challenging leadership roles in the Old Testament. His first assignment on the job? Free two million Israelite slaves and lead them through the desert.

    As leaders, many of us can relate to Moses’s feeling of inadequacy in the face of daunting and unknown leadership landscapes that lie before us. In What’s in Your Hand, author Eddie Estep follows Moses’s incredible, sea-splitting journey and offers important leadership lessons that include:

    – Hearing God’s voice
    – Leading through change
    – Managing emotion in leadership
    – Activating your leadership team

    From a timid, self-effacing shepherd to a mighty biblical figure, the life of Moses teaches us a valuable lesson. God is not looking for a perfect leader with a powerful scepter but only a willing servant gripping a staff. What’s in your hand? God asks each of us as he calls us to serve and lead the people God loves.

  • Wisdom From Babylon


    What does it mean to provide leadership for the church in an increasingly secular context? When religion is privatized and secularism reigns in the public square, Christians are often drawn toward either individualist escapism or constant cultural warfare. But might this context instead offer a fresh invitation for the church to adapt and thrive? Gordon Smith is passionate about the need for capable, mature leaders to navigate and respond to a changing society. In this book, he draws on his extensive experience as a university president, pastor, and international speaker to open a multidisciplinary conversation about the competencies and capacities essential for today’s leaders. After analyzing the phenomenon of secularization in the West and charting common Christian responses, Smith introduces four sources of wisdom to help guide us through this new terrain: the people and prophets of Judah during the Babylonian exile, the early church in its pagan environment, contemporary churches across the Global South, and Christian thinkers in post-Christian Europe. From these resources he identifies practices and strategies-from liturgy and catechesis to mission and hospitality-that can give shape to faithful, alternate communities in such a time as this. In cultures fraught with fear and division, Smith calls for leaders who can effect change from the margins, promote unity and maturity among Christians, and provide a non-anxious presence grounded in the presence of Christ. Educators, church leaders, and anyone seeking to understand the times will find this book to be an indispensable resource for cultivating distinctively Christian leadership.
