Description : Part 2 in the Zingerman's Guide to Good Leading series continues on sharing the secrets that have helped take Zingerman's from a 25 seat, 4 person start up to a nationally known, $40,000,000 organization employing over 500 people. While Part 1 looked at the secrets behind Building a Great Business, Part 2 will look at the leadership style that has helped make Zingerman's such a special place to work and to eat. The book includes Secrets #19-29? of the Zingerman's Experience, including essays on the energy crisis in the American workplace, servant leadership, stewardship, why everyone's a leader, Zingerman's entrepreneurial approach to management, and Ari's approach to Anarcho-Capitalism. While everything in the book draws on what Ari and others have learned and live at Zingerman's, it's all totally applicable to organizations of all sizes and scopes. It is, as Ari says in the introduction, leading towards a new way to work.
Description : An increasing number of students and professionals are choosing to travel the globe to engage with the realities of trauma and human suffering through mental health aid. But in the field of global mental health, good intentions are not enough to ensure good training, development, and care. The risk of harm is real when outsiders deliver mental health aid in culturally inappropriate and otherwise na•ve ways. This book, based on the experiences of the co-editors and their colleagues at Burma Border Projects (BBP), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the mental health and psychosocial well-being of the displaced people of Burma, sets out global mental health theory allied with local perspectives, experiences, real-life challenges, strengths, and best practices. Topics include assessment and intervention protocols, vulnerable groups and the special challenges they present, and supervision and evaluation programs. An introduction by the editors establishes the political and health contexts for the volume. Written in a style appropriate for academic audiences and lay readers, this book will serve as a fundamental text for clinicians, interns, volunteers, and researchers who work in regions of the world that have suffered the violence of war, forced displacement, human rights violations, poverty, and oppression.
Description : There are a lot of books about leadership out there. I wanted to stir the pot and make some suggestions that I have not heard yet. Leadership is not about sticking qualities all over yourself, like dozens of "yellow sticky notes": "Today I will learn time management. Tomorrow I will develop integrity." Mere information is not enough to change us. Data may lead to transformation, but it is not enough to transform us on its own. Leadership is not about "trends" and "buzzwords." Leadership is about personhood. Personhood is where this transformation truly takes place. Leadership may perseverate into any one of these things (stickies, trends, information, data, and buzzwords), but it is ultimately and ideally about personhood. This may be a philosophical category that the church has left off discussing, but it meant a lot to the ancients. We need to stir some of their depth back into our existence. One's genuine ability to lead comes from one's genuine transformation into the kind of person that is needed for the particular form of leading at hand. Different traits will be called forth from the leader depending on the situation, place, time, and people. It is the person who is the leader and not the trait or characteristic that is the leader. "Being" is critical; not just "doing." I think a lot of our current reading on leadership is simply about skill-sets. They are important discussions, but that is not all there is. Do not get me wrong, I am not saying you must be perfect to lead. If that were the case, I would not be able to write this book. What I am saying is that your identity is where your true leading comes from, and if you are in a transformational relationship with Jesus the chances are good that your person and identity will deepen over time.
Description : Imagine what ministry in your church would look like if every member was serving in some way. Now imagine how effective your ministry would be if everyone served with a leader’s mind-set. In Building a Church Full of Leaders, Dr. Jeanne Porter King sets out to help pastors and ministry leaders move from using traditional methods of moving people from the pews to service, to developing strategic and transformative systems for organizing ministry, recruitment, training, and ongoing development that aim to help church members see themselves not just as volunteers but as servants and co-laborers of ministry. Filled with both practical and spiritual tools for developing an effective leadership model, Building a Church Full of Leaders will help you transform the way you shape and deliver ministry at your church—as well as the ones who deliver it.
