BOOK EXCERPT:

“Before I could take two more steps, a gentle whisper impressed upon my heart to grieve, breathe, and receive.” –Steve Carter Steve Carter was faced with a choice—one that would change his life. Walking away from his dream, Steve resigned from his newly appointed position as lead teaching pastor of Willow Creek Community Church. He made a difficult decision in the midst of a very public, painful, and deeply disheartening situation. In Everything to Lose, see how Steve walked through adversity to find peace. As he learns to grieve, breathe, and receive, so can you. Be prepared to face life’s biggest challenges. Be reminded to stand. No matter the stakes—and no matter your role in the body of Christ—biblical integrity gives you nothing to lose when you feel as if you could lose everything.

BOOK EXCERPT:

DESCRIPTION OF THE ORIGINAL BOOKWe have all suffered this situation: We try to have a sensible conversation about something important when suddenly a bitter fight breaks out. How is it possible that two people who are usually reasonable and pleasant, end up in a screaming competition, even when both have identical goals? The book Crucial Conversations investigates the root that causes these types of problems.Kerry Patterson and her team of co-writers and leadership consultants describe several techniques for effective negotiation and conflict resolution, all in the context of important potential life-changing conversations. You will learn the techniques to transform critical situations into something positive. By focusing on searching for solutions, you can prevent critical dialogues from becoming a meaningless struggle. You'll also find tips on how to redirect a conversation on the right track when things have already begun to falter.The book also emphasizes on some issues often neglected in negotiations, such as creating safe environments for others to express their authentic feelings and desires. The authors will explain how to remain alert to new possibilities or unspoken alternatives, including examples drawn from business and personal relationships: how to have a productive conversation with a irritable teenage daughter, how to criticize constructively without hurting the feelings of others, how to request a promotion, how to provide important information in a meeting or how to solve marital problems.John F. Kennedy, former president of the United States, once said: "Never negotiate on the basis of fear. But never fear to negotiate. " These wise words had not been as true as they are today in the current world of business. Many people recoil from the crucial conversations in which they must negotiate to get ahead. However, in business you do not get what you deserve, but what in fact is, negotiated.ABOUT KERRY PATTERSON, JOSEPH GRENNY, RON MCMILLAN, AL SWITZLER: AUTHORS OF THE ORIGINAL BOOKKerry Patterson, cultural change project consultant, developed videos for training programs.

BOOK EXCERPT:

What makes some leaders so effective when the stakes are high, while others fall short? Why are some able to not only survive but to lead their organizations to new heights even in risky, fast-changing times? The answer is succinct but multi-layered: such leaders display courage, judgment, and fortitude. High-stakes leadership does not require unnatural powers, nor is it predicated on a dangerous situation. The three signature character traits can be cultivated by anyone at any level in any organization, big or small. Organizational and leadership consultant Constance Dierickx describes high-stakes leadership in a simple, three-part model that illuminates the mindsets, strategies, and tactics leaders must draw upon to make tough decisions, take an unpopular stand, or ignore convention, providing real-world examples across a range of sectors and industries. Dierickx developed her model of high-stakes leadership to help her clients—executives at organizations ranging from start-ups to nonprofits to large, global companies—better define what they need to bring strategy to life. This, she found, is the great gulf in business, the vast space between idea and results. High-Stakes Leadership helps leaders sharpen their ability to: act decisively, with clarity and focus test ideas using reason, and course correct as needed be resolute and inspire others to continue, even in the face of challenges Leading requires the courage to make conscious decisions about what to do, the judgment to separate information from short-term trends, and the fortitude to remain true to oneself and one’s mission. When leaders do these things, they also become teachers, leading their teams by example, often without realizing it. The essential aspects of good leadership endure even as the environment and tactics change. Indeed, courage, judgment, and fortitude are not merely tools for survival, they are the means by which we sculpt the future.
