Product Description

Great leaders build up, not down. When leaders, whether in the church or in the marketplace, inspire their teams with a vision of what is possible, passion meets production and truly great things start to happen. As Senior Director of Family Ministries at Lakewood Church in Houston, the largest and fastest-growing church in America, Craig Johnson oversees thousands of staff members, lay leaders and volunteers.

From his unique vantage-point comes Lead Vertically, a fresh look at the importance of building teams when the goal is not only success, but fulfillment. Lead Vertically includes tools and exercises that can be adapted by any leader for teams of any size, as well as tips for recruiting, training and strengthening teams. Leaders will learn to inspire even when saying no and to build trust personally, not just professionally. People can live with disappointment but not without hope, and Lead Vertically shows leaders how to motivate teams by consistently and clearly communicating that the best days are ahead.

    In Lead Vertically, Pastor Craig shares with us his thoughts on how to build an awesome leadership team that is not only successful but is fulfilled. Through powerful scripture references, personal experiences, and life stories submitted by his own staff; Pastor Craig show leaders the importance of building a team that is reaching not only the ministries (or companies) goals but also the staffs dreams. Letting them know that the best days are yet to come and that they need to keeping looking up because they never know when God is going to drop something awesome in their lap.Pastor Craig has so many insightful quotes and statements in this book. Here are just a few a few of my favorite: Vertical leaders help others soar where eagles fly, not where the chickens grovel.You cant receive the harvest until you accept the seed.A vertical leader is inclusive and builds up whoever is willing to follow.To lead another life, one must be willing to give up a part of his or her own.Leadership is about knowing how you are without being defensive about who you are not.I encourage you all to go out and get a copy of this book. Its available just about everywhere online and I am sure in the stores as well. Dont just buy one though buy some for your staff. Sow into them it will be worth it BIG TIME.
