After reading this book, I purchased five more copies to share with my colleagues so we could read and discuss it as a management team. Succinctly stated and timeless, these principles are presented in an engaging manner conducive to discussion and practical application.
The way of the shepherd gives simple but important life lessons on how to treat the people that work with you and for you. It gives us the tools to have the best team in any situation, whether business, ministry or even sports, the reason is it is based on the Good Shepherd and how He tells us to take care of His sheep, if we follow His example we will have great results.
The book was an easy read. I read about four chapters at B&N then bought the book from Christianbook and finished it rather quickly. It reads as if you're a fly on the wall during some very personal teaching, mentoring, friendship building discussions. I plan to have my boys read it and buy more copies as gifts.
This book is great for anyone who is entering a management position to have, it gives you Great insight of how to manage in a Godly way and in a personal way as well. I Highly recommend it for it has helped me in my position at work and even my Church as a leader.
