Overview Descriptions of four animals--lions, otters, golden retrievers, and beavers--are unique ways to describe a person's God-given strengths and behavioral style. The key to building strong, close-knit ministry teams is to learn how to integrate the different personality types.
Publishers Description Do you know the four inescapable "transitions" that every ministry team must face? The answer to that question lies at the heart of successful ministry teams and is found in the powerful book, Leading from Your Strengths: Building Close-Knit Ministry Teams. Whether you're a pastor or in para-church ministry, a lay leader or a team member, the principles you learn here can make a tremendous difference in how effective and intimate your ministry team becomes.

Leading From Your Strengths Jul 13, 2006
This is an excellent book for teams to read together and work through. It is written in an easy flowing style that brings you into the story. To get the most benefit from the book, I highly recommend taking the assessment test which can be found online. The material in the book along with the assessment really gives a great picture of who you are and shows how you interact and communicate with others. I would recommend the book and assessment for all team members and new hires.
Very helpful and value for money! Jul 5, 2004
After buying this book, I could not put it down. Simple structured and to the point with short chapters and understandable english. Very practical with a storyline (with white river raftering guide experiences- will enjoy) and questions - journal type, at the end of each chapter, made it easy to follow in a busy work schedule. The core messege quickly communicated and background given of authors, was easy for me to buy-in. The free online accessment, that come with it, was a bonus and my family, friend and staff confirmed the accuracy of the results - the profile of your strenghts and how you should continue with free downloadable guides. Although this book is published fo the "church ministry", it is just as applicable in the secular and business world. I will strongly recommend this practical book to new upcoming church planters and dynamic christian organisations and "christians at work" support groups.
