You don't have to be controlled by difficult people!
Strange as it may seem, other people are not nearly as committed to our happiness as we are. In fact, sometimes it seems like they're on a mission to make us miserable! There's always that one person. The one who hijacks our emotions. The one who seems to thrive on drama. If we could just "fix" that person, everything would be better. But we can't fix other people. We can only make choices about ourselves.
In this cut-to-the-chase book, communication expert Mike Bechtle shows you how to stop being a victim of other people's craziness. With commonsense wisdom and proactive advice that you can put into practice immediately, Bechtle gives you a proven strategy to handle crazy people--and stay sane while doing it.
There will always be difficult people. But this fresh perspective on dealing with them can change your life--starting today!

A vision. You as a leader may have it, but has your organization caught it? If a leader's vision is all about what could be and what should be, why are you buried under what is? Noted author and pastor Andy Stanley points out that if followers don't get the vision, it's because the leaders haven't delivered it.
He reveals the three reasons vision doesn't stick. And then he delivers three ways to make vision stick, to make you a leader worth following:
1. Cast vision strategically: defining your vision
2. Celebrate vision systematically: regularly rejoicing in the successes
3. Live your vision continuously: putting your vision into practice in your own life
With Making Vision Stick, you'll learn how to propel you and your organization forward on the vision God has granted you.
