Most pastors say that the need to identify and develop leaders is critical to the health and growth of their church. Yet, most churches do not have an intentional plan for doing this. In this book, Mac Lake reveals a practical strategy for addressing this problem.
How do you develop leaders in a church setting—good leaders, qualified leaders, leaders who are committed, who possess the DNA of the church, and leaders who produce results? The majority of churches have tried everything, but is what they are doing working? Unfortunately, in most cases, no.
The Multiplication Effect is a proven, tested program, designed using unique training modules to help identify potential leaders, equip and disciple them at every level of their leadership journey, and empower them to multiply themselves by developing other leaders. Churches who use this plan will become “cultures” of leader development built into the structure and mission statement of the church and thus solve their leadership shortage.
One of Time Magazine’s Top 100 Inventors in History shares an insider’s story of the cellphone, how it changed the world—and a view of where it’s headed. While at Motorola in the 1970s, wireless communications pioneer Martin Cooper invented the first handheld mobile phone. But the cellphone as we know it today almost didn’t happen. Now, in Cutting the Cord, Cooper takes readers inside the stunning breakthroughs, devastating failures, and political battles in the quest to revolutionize—and control—how people communicate. It’s a dramatic tale involving brilliant engineers, government regulators, lobbyists, police, quartz crystals, and a horse. Industry skirmishes sparked a political war in Washington to prevent a monopolistic company from dominating telecommunications. The drama culminated in the first-ever public call made on a handheld, portable telephone—by Cooper himself. The story of the cell phone has much to teach about innovation, strategy, and management. But the story of wireless communications is far from finished. This book also relates Cooper’s vision of the future. From the way we work and the way children learn to the ways we approach medicine and healthcare, advances in the cellphone will continue to reshape our world for the better.
Four simple laws of project management: “Everyone who must depend upon others to deliver results by a deadline should read this book.” —Donald M. Dible, co-founder, ProjectWorld Everyone is a project manager—projects are what all of us do, day in and day out. Skillful project management is fundamental to survival in today’s warp-speed world. Yet it is often misunderstood, leading to unrealistic deadlines, poorly defined goals, and wasted time. The secret to successful project management, says Barry Flicker, is making and keeping clear commitments—far easier said than done in a time of complex, cross-departmental projects and sometimes unclear lines of authority. Through a story about people confronting daily frustrations on the job, Flicker demonstrates how shifting focus from blaming “the idiots out there” to examining one’s own behaviors and assumptions helps people to overcome obstacles. Working at Warp Speed shows how following four simple laws can transform workers’ most frustrating complaints from persistent barriers into potential breakthrough experiences.
The details differ slightly, but the story in its telling is always the same: Ninety of so students sit nervously awaiting the start of their first marketing class. At the appointed time, not a moment more or less, a slight man with bushy eyebrows and an impressive mustache enters the room, slaps down his papers and fixes his audience with a piercing gaze before choosing one unfortunate soul: “Mr. Brown, Begin!” Startled, Mr. Brown launches into a halting rehash of the day’s assignment before he’s cut short with a fierce directive: “We’ve read the case. Tell us something new.” For the next eighty minutes Mr. Brown and his classmates are badgered, cajoled and dazzled as the man guides them to a different, deeper way of looking at the issues. Dazed, they stumble out of the classroom determined to prepare better for tomorrow’s class. Scared, even resentful in the early weeks (the man does not let up), the students come to appreciate the intensity and rapid fire humor of the teacher. Clearly, he cares. A lot. And by the end of the semester, something transformative has happened: they are better thinkers. The man, Ted Levitt, the place, Harvard Business School.
A corporate lawyer’s manifesto on maintaining America’s economic superpower status and protecting our country’s future. Most Americans want the same things. We may differ in our outlook on how to best achieve the things we want for our families, our community, our nation, and ourselves . . . but at our core, the majority of Americans agree with the goals of our nation. Are the glory days of America behind us? It is not too late to change this growing perception, but that change requires the resolve of the American people. We are at war, not only against radical Islam and the forces of terrorism, but, more importantly, we are in an economic war that reflects directly on the ability of the United States to maintain its economic superpower status in the world. If we lose our position as the world’s leading economic superpower, life in America will change in ways we cannot even begin to imagine.
Do you run a business? Then you have to hear this true story!
Every entrepreneur wants to be successful, but even a seemingly small mistake can sometimes cause big trouble. The tenth part takes place again in a hotel, only due to the fact that it deals with a businessman who has lost his company. Ironically, the one to rob him of it was his less successful competitor. Fortunately, he did not give up and, despite further adversities, managed to get back up again on his own two feet.
