A highly practical companion to Empowerment Takes More Than Minute that can help church leaders who: one, wish to change from a command and control to a permission-giving, empowered organization; two, want to change from a hierarchical, top-down to a team-based, grass roots, horizontal organization; three, desire to become more of a coach than a boss. The author’s use of the concept of “Situational Leadership”, the graphs, and the practical step-by-step approach makes this book an excellence resource. It is a book that you will refer to over and over in your journey toward empowering your church.
