And drawing on the extensive correspondence the authors have received over the years, they have added a section that outlines the many ways that readers have been using Leadership and Self-Deception to improve their lives and workplaces—areas such as team building, conflict resolution, and personal growth and development, to name a few.

In doing so, these otherwise well-intentioned leaders are working harder than they should while not getting all they could out of their teams. Lead Inside the Box gives leaders a way to get the best out of their teams by focusing their energy where it will make the biggest difference. It teaches leaders how to: Figure out where they are currently investing their time and energy across their teams Identify the unique leadership needs of each team member Make smarter decisions about how and where to invest their time and energy to get the best results out of everyone Through simple frameworks brought to life with stories from the trenches, leaders will be able to see their own teams—and themselves—from a new perspective. Paradoxically these methods will enable leaders to improve their team’s performance exponentially while expending half the effort.
Description : In his path-breaking new book, "Leading Out-of-the-Box Change: The Chief Executive's Essential Guide to Achieving Nonprofit Innovation and Growth," leadership expert Doug Eadie draws from his quarter century of experience working with nonprofit and public leaders to provide a practical, thoroughly tested guide for leading the kind of out-of-the-box change that is critical to a nonprofit organization's long-range stability and growth. Doug describes the critical leadership role of the chief executive officer as Innovator-in-Chief and lays out the key elements of a powerful new change-planning tool that nonprofit leaders can apply to take command of out-of-the-box change: the Change Investment Portfolio Process. Doug also describes how to transform the organization's governing body into a strong advocate for - and committed owner of - out-of-the-box change initiatives. In the book's Postscript, the author also discusses the personal application of the Portfolio Process to build richer, more satisfying professional and personal lives. From the Foreword: "What makes Doug's book a particularly rich resource for non-profit and public leaders is its grounding in Doug's quarter century of hands-on work with an incredible range of organizations. Leading Out-of-the-Box Change is a real-life guidebook, for real-life leaders who are facing real-life challenges-not just another one of those collections of fascinating but untested theories."

Description : God Out of Control shouts the fact that God’s Presence is not constrained by time, manmade walls around Him, or self-limiting and God-constraining mindsets. Statistics abound about the large numbers of people leaving organized religion and the general disenchantment with all things spiritual as presented by Western religions. Secularists, politicians, political correctness police, public education, government, and law enforcement have all stepped up unwarranted persecution of religion in general and Christianity in particular. These anti-Christ systems are encouraged to continue by the obvious lack of push-back by the religious machines in the United States. Genuine believers, the grassroots movement of quiet anarchy, are quickly dismissed as fringe groups with no real power or organization. Little do the masters of deception understand the inner workings of the Holy Spirit that are reminiscent of the times of the apostles and the early church founders. These early believers knew and understood that He who was in them was greater than who was in the world (1 John 4:4). They could not be bullied, silenced, or ignored. They escaped from legalistic traditions and the mind-numbing status
