The best leaders not only lead well but also reflect on their leadership long enough and thoughtfully enough to articulate the philosophies that cause them to do so. Whether serving in the marketplace or in ministry, as executives or rank-and-file employees, as salaried staff or volunteer servants, good leaders can pinpoint the rationale for their actions and decisions with the ease of reciting their home address. In Axiom, author Bill Hybels divulges the God-given convictions that have dictated his leadership strategy for more than three decades as senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church. Oriented toward four key leadership categories ... 1. Vision and strategy ('Promote Shameless Profitability,' 'Take a Flyer') 2. Teamwork and communication ('Obi-Wan Kenobi Isn't for Hire,' 'Disagree without Drawing Blood') 3. Activity and assessment ('Develop a Mole System,' 'Sweat the Small Stuff') 4. Personal integrity ('Admit Mistakes, and Your Stock Goes Up,' 'Fight for Your Family') ... Axiom brokers accessible wisdom from one leader's journey, as well as emboldens you to nail down the reasons why you lead like you lead.

Highly Recommended!
5 stars By Dr. Bernard Low, Aug 03 2015
In this book, which is a must read for any church leader, Bill Hybels, founding and senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church (WCCC), shares with the reader 76 "leadership proverbs" that he has learned from and practiced over three decades as senior pastor of WCCC. These proverbs are categorized under four categories: (a) Vision and Strategy, (b) Teamwork and Communication, (c) Activity and Assessment, and (d) Personal Integrity. Hybels explains what every leadership proverb means and illustrates from his personal examples or experiences. Whether one is an aspiring or seasoned leader, there is much to be learned from Hybels who is undoubtedly one of the most influential leaders of the 21st century. Two of Hybels' leadership proverbs which resonate with me are "Excellence honors God and inspires people" and leaders need to keep reading to keep growing. This book is highly recommended!
