None of us is as smart as all of us. ― Ken Blanchard
This is tough category to pick a “Top 5” for because there are a LOT of good books on team building (sadly, there is a lot of bad books too). What I am attempting to provide is a good variety from the most recent set of books I have studied and applied to my own leadership.
I should also point out, that while most all of these books are written for the broader business world, each one has invaluable insight and application for both the Christian Non-Profit and Church leader. If you are looking for more of a biblical foundation for teams, then read my review of “Embracing Shared Ministry” by Dr. Joseph Hellerman.
I discuss all of these books in my podcast @ Christian Leadership Radio so you can listen to the archives for more insight. If you have your own ideas on what books should be in a top 5 list for building better teams, please be sure to leave a comment and a link. I am always looking for good ideas.
