"When Jesus called out to the fishermen, 'Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men,' he was about to transform each one of them from someone who worked only for himself and a daily catch to someone who was part of a larger team, thinking about eternity," Jones writes in this guide to feel-good management. The author of Jesus, CEO segments her book into four parts, corresponding to Jesus' actions with his disciples (he excited them, grounded them, transformed them and released them). Though targeted toward leaders with a spiritual bent (e.g., not everyone will respond to her advice to manage remote teams through prayer), the book offers plenty of lucid and realistic suggestions, such as valuing diversity, conducting regular internal audits and identifying the causes of failure.
