Hybels is always worth watching, reading, or listening to where leadership is concerned. Leadership Axioms is a collection of short chapters that can be read in 5-10 minute intervals. Courageous Leadership is written more like a traditional book on leadership.

Written from a secular point of view, this is one of the classic books on leadership. The section on vision is worth the price of the book.

The president of Southern Seminary, Mohler is one of the most courageous Christian leaders of our time. His biblical thesis is that leadership must flow out of integrity.

Stanley begins with the thought, "Visions are born in the soul of a man or woman who is consumed with the tension between what is and what could be." From there, he unfolds a practical book on how to develop a vision and share it with others.
