NEW EDITION, REVISED AND UPDATED
In this new edition of the bestselling classic, Charles Manz doesn’t look to Jesus’s teachings to support preconceived theories of how a manager should lead but approaches the New Testament with an open mind to see what insights it reveals for today’s business world. What he finds are powerful lessons that will inspire you—no matter what your religious background—to maintain integrity, live on a higher plane, and ultimately achieve your personal and professional goals.

The third edition is updated throughout and includes several new examples and a self-assessment chapter designed to encourage self-examination and personal reflection. Remarkably contemporary and welcoming to all readers, this book will challenge you to evaluate your own leadership style and to consider time-tested spiritual wisdom that can make you more enlightened and more effective.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The idea that a happy workforce is an effective one isn't new. However, organizational consultant Manz (Business Without Bosses, Wiley, 1993) brings a fresh approach to the concept, showing how the deeper vision of the gospels can teach business leaders to emphasize commitment over a bottom-line agenda by recognizing the value and contribution of every individual. Applying lessons from Jesus' parables to the corporation, Manz illustrates the effectiveness of "mustard-seed power": that truthfulness, humility, compassion, forgiveness, and love are the farthest-reaching approaches a leader can use to inspire others to contribute their best work efforts. Written for a broad audience, this is suitable for both public and corporate libraries.
