Overview

A revolutionary new audio program that will guide business leaders into the next century!

He gave them a vision of something larger than themselves.

The world is changing at almost breakneck speed, and the leaders who succeed will be those who can marshal their most powerful resources in the most effective ways. With principles embedded in spirituality, ethics and strength, acclaimed motivator Laurie Beth Jones brings us Jesus, CEO -- a bold yet sensitive inspirational guide for leadership success.

After years in business, Jones was struck by the notion that Jesus' leadership approach ran counter to most of today's management styles. In Jesus, CEO, she explains that by harnessing the three strengths behind Jesus' leadership techniques (the strengths of self-mastery, action, and relationships), we can become the empowered leaders that the next millenium will require.

Following the example of Jesus -- a "CEO" who took a disorganizied "staff" of twelve and built a thriving "enterprise" -- Jesus, CEO details a simple, profound, fresh, and often humor-filled approach to motivating and managing others.

This was a great book. Very well write and very informative. I can listen to it over and over. I am the C.E.O of my own company and the information contained in this book is priceless.

Really excellent, will re listen again and again. Really showed me how to think about the important things of leading a camaraderie instead of a dictatorship. Very valuable insight and I look forward to it implementing it greatly. The author read it well. There were a few pauses (assumably at the end of chapters) but there is nothing wrong with this. It makes you ant to pause and think about your life in relation to the book itself. A very good insight into Omega leadership. Really good 'read'

This Item is abridged despite the websites claim that it is unabridged. Over all it is a good book. It puts some of the stories we've heard in church in a new context. Reaffirms others. I would like to hear it unabridged someday.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As a Christian, I gained a lot of insight into the life of Jesus and found it to be very relevant to my own leadership experiences today. This leadership book is written from a female's perspective. It moves along quickly using good examples to keep the listener's attention.

Can see how applicable Jesus' life is in the business world today. A must for Christian business people and anyone else who is interested in the seeing the business world in a different light. We always hear about the corruption in the business world but never Jesus
