Incredible! Awesome! Can't put down! Feb 8, 2007
This is an amazing book that shows you how to look at your leadership skills and change them to a way conducive with the ways of Jesus Christ. Not only is this book for a Christian, but for any leader looking to lead their team, company or business. Wow! Someone said to me yesterday that a person is not born with compassion or sensitivity and he was very right. If you are high on your horse or riding a power trip...maybe you have a hard time getting people to see your point of view as a leader, then this book is for you and everyone underneath you. Get on the same page and become leaders together. I bought this book for my entire team and me. I want winners not whiners!!!! I am a compassionate leader, I just have to refine my qualities and this book is the one to do it!!! Buy it now!!!!!
DISAPPOINTING Jul 3, 2006
With all the years of leadership experience Engstrom and Cedar have, expecially in areas that demand compassion, this book was a big disappointment. I was hoping for a solid treatment of what "compassion" truly looks like in a leader and how one acquires it. Instead, much of the book was a rehash of leadership principles that can be found in their previous books, especially Engstrom. Evidently the book was edited by Norm Rohrer, which took something away from the possibility of interacting with heartfelt personal experiences of the authors. Both great leaders...not so great book.
