"Millions have been inspired by the Bible's spiritual lessons. Now, Lorin Woolfe provides a unique way to view the Bible ...for leadership lessons that can be applied to our modern business world. Consider David's courage and innovation in slaying Goliath with just a stone and a sling; Moses' outstanding "succession planning" in picking Joshua; Joseph and the political skills that brought him to the seat of power; and of course, Jesus' compassion, communication skills, and vision that launched Christianity (a long-term success by any measure). These are leaders among leaders. Their achievements - and their inspired methods of achievement - offer a wholly different perspective on business leadership. For the dozens of Biblical stories presented, the book provides: a concise retelling of each story; one (or more) leadership lessons suggested by each story; examples of contemporary business leaders who exhibit some of the inspired traits of these ancient leaders, including: Fred Smith of FedEx, Howard Shultz of Starbucks, Tom Chappell of Tom's of Maine (a "toothpaste with a mission"), Roy Vagelos of Merck, and many more. The chapters cover these universal topics: courage; purpose; communication; honesty and Integrity; power and Influence; performance Management; team Building; humility; compassion; justice; encouragement and Consequences; wisdom; and, creating the Future Each topic concludes with a list of key points to keep in mind as readers continue on their own leadership journeys."
