Organizations are made to flourish, yet too many languish due to a lack of understanding. Shelley Trebesch gives us of years of wisdom by introducing us to a dynamic, holistic, practical and time-tested tool that she calls the ECO model. She makes the complex comprehensible. I'll be using this tool in my work with church planters.

Shelley Trebesch has a rare gift - she is able to combine her understanding of the technical, academic grasp of this great subject with the practical application she has shared with companies small and large. She empowers readers to be in the right conversations, asking the right questions in order the find the right solutions for their journeys. This is most helpful when theories swirl around without being anchored in the daily trenches of leadership.
