Using Ancient Wisdom for Inspired Teamwork.
Laurie Beth Jones has given hundreds of thousands of business readers insight into how the ideas of Jesus can be used to enhance performance. One of the most critical work areas for anyone, whether a manager or a CEO, a teacher or a pastor, is cooperative teamwork.
Jesus can be a role model for team leaders everywhere. When Jesus called out to his future disciples, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men," he transformed them from people who worked for themselves to people who were part of a larger team.
This book offers dozens of stories from the Bible showing how Jesus managed his team of disciples and other followers, with suggestions for how to apply these lessons to real-world team building and management problems. It offers guidance and inspiration on:
- How to excite your team in order to motivate them
- How to ground them so they'll be realistic about what can be achieved
- How to transform them into a truly well-functioning team
- How to release them into the world to improve other teams elsewhere
Along the way, the book gives examples of companies in which teams work well together and offers lessons that can help team leaders everywhere sustain themselves and achieve their common goals.
