Tough Leaders Don't Quit Apr 11, 2006
Jim Lange knows how to lead - even when it hurts. Everyone who has ever worked for an unreasonable boss or in a hostile atmoshpere will identify with the author's painful insights. Best of all this short but insightful book offers hope and help based on Biblical wisdom. Terrific reading.
A Gifted writer and a great aid for all Christian leaders Nov 11, 2005
Jim Lange wrote a very helpful and prayerful book on how to lead in the workplace and in life. I have used many points in his book as a leader and recommend it.

A great book! Jim has carefully articulated the very best representation of true biblical leadership. Whether you are a Christian or not, this is a MUST read. The principals of leadership that he outlines can be be easily applied to all areas of your life (work, family, church, etc.). BRAVO!
It's about relationships... May 26, 2005
This was a fast read that seems simple on the surface but reveals a depth of truth that is so fundamental, it's easily lost in the chaos of the business world. Corporate life focuses so much on productivity and profit that it can cause us to lose site of what is most important...our relationships with others. Jim did a fantastic job of pointing this out with his vivid (and sadly enough,unexagerated)examples of I.M.Boss, who represents the worst of the worse in corporate life. He excelled at showing cause and effect in behavior and motive. His use of the Bible proves that God has a plan for us even at work in the secular world...and His plan can be accomplished best when we have respectful regard for one another. His book shows the wisdom of being obedient to two biblical commands; "Love your neighbor as yourself," and "Love your enemies." The chapter titles give a clear picture of how we can be Christian leaders in the workplace. I was reminded of areas where I need to improve in my work relationships. When you care for people first, everyone wins.
