Jesus Built an Inspired Team. You Can, Too.

Laurie Beth Jones has given hundreds of thousands of business readers insight into how the ideas of Jesus can be used to enhance performance. In Teach Your Team to Fish, Jones focuses on one of the most critical areas for anyone in business: teamwork. Leaders today face their greatest challenges not only in defining strategies and getting updated information but also in getting diverse human beings to pull together without falling apart.

Jesus is a role model for team leaders everywhere. Teach Your Team to Fish offers dozens of stories from the Bible, showing how Jesus managed his team of disciples and other followers, with suggestions for how to apply these lessons to real-world teambuilding and management problems. It offers guidance and inspiration on:

· How to excite your team members in order to motivate them
· How to ground them so they’ll be realistic about what can be achieved
· How to transform them into a truly well-functioning team
· How to release them into the world to improve teams elsewhere

Laurie Beth Jones provides many examples of companies in which teams work well together and offers lessons that can help team leaders everywhere sustain themselves and achieve their common goals.

From the Back Cover:

“Once again, Laurie Beth Jones shows us a practical pathway to teambuilding illuminated by the spark of the eternal and divine.” —Michael A. Volkema, chairman, president, and CEO, Herman Miller

“Think of it. Whoever built a higher performing team than Jesus! Now Laurie Beth Jones makes this ancient wisdom accessible and useful to twenty-first-century leaders. Learn from the Master.”—Bob Buford, author of Halftime: Changing Your Game Plan from Success to Significance and Stuck in Halftime: Reinvesting Your One and Only Life

“This is Laurie Beth Jones’s best book yet, and that’s saying a lot. Teamwork is a hot topic in America today, and this book is going to be a classic on the subject.” —Pat Williams, senior vice president, Orlando Magic

“Laurie Beth Jones beautifully points aspiring team leaders and builders to the Master Servant Leader and Builder, Jesus Christ. Teach Your Team to Fish is rich in inspiration and instruction . . . well worth the read, and can be life-changing.” —Commissioner Robert A.

It is a must-read for those who seek to lead people through challenging and turbulent times as we enter the twenty-first century.” —C. William Pollard, chairman, ServiceMaster

“Laurie Beth Jones understands that good business is built upon good relational skills. She uniquely teaches us how to apply these principles of ancient wisdom in today’s work environment.” —Jim Ellick, president, Strategy for Living
