About the BookWith hard-earned wisdom drawn from a lifetime of experience, David Green helps you drive incredible results in business and life by sharing a fascinating inside look--mistakes and all--at the counterintuitive yet highly effective biblical principles he used to build Hobby Lobby from a 600 dollar startup to a 7-billion-dollar enterprise.
Book SynopsisIf conventional leadership wisdom is to be believed, Hobby Lobby shouldn't work. So why does it?
David Green, the founder of Hobby Lobby and an unlikely leader, grew his company from a $600 startup to a $8 billion company that gives 50 percent of its profits away to fund initiatives all over the world. He blazed his own path in business, drawn not from business gurus but from the pages of Scripture.
In this inspirational book, David Green challenges talented leaders with hearts committed to Christ to consider this question: What if God wants to use you to do a new, even greater work? To raise up and encourage the next generation of leaders, David Green shares 12 unconventional principles that drive Hobby Lobby. These core principles can open doors to greater success in business and life.
Whether you lead a business or a nonprofit, a small business or a multinational corporation, a start-up or a department, this book will show you how breaking the conventional "rules" of business may be the best decision you ever make.
From the Back Cover"An alternative title for this book could have been Billion-Dollar Wisdom because that's what's inside. It's one thing to run a business for a year or two. It's an entirely different thing to lead a multibillion-dollar business for decades. Whether you've got a small team like me or a big dream of what could be, you'll always feel like you've underpaid for the amount of knowledge that's packed inside this book."--Jon Acuff, New York Times bestselling author of Soundtracks
"In my many years as a female CEO in the male-dominated trucking industry, I can testify that David Green's latest book, Leadership Not by the Book, is a refuge for those wanting to be led by God's Word and Holy Spirit and NOT by the ways of the world. I highly recommend this read for all leaders and aspiring leaders."--Marcia Taylor, founder and CEO of Bennett Family of Companies
"Leadership Not by the Book is a must-read for those desiring to live by God's Kingdom agenda with their business, their ministry, and their leadership."--Dr. Tony Evans, president of The Urban Alternative, senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship
"Like David Green, I've learned in leading my own organization, Turning Point, that if you follow conventional wisdom, you'll land in conventional places. But if your leadership is by the Book and you are careful to obey, then you'll be amazed by the places God will take you. I highly recommend this read."--Dr. David Jeremiah, senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church, El Cajon, CA; founder and CEO of Turning Point Ministries
"In Leadership Not by the Book, David explains how leading by the Good Book, the Bible, results in some unconventional decisions and surprising methods to exceed anything produced by human efforts alone. His fresh perspective and innovative insight make this book a must-read for every leader."--Chris Hodges, senior pastor of Church of the Highlands, author of The Daniel Dilemma and Out of the Cave
