Publisher Description

There are lots of books about discovering or developing a vision for your organization, but this one is about making that vision endure the corrosion of time and complexity--how to make your vision stick.

Influential author and pastor Andy Stanley reveals the reasons why leaders' visions often falter, and he delivers 5 in-depth strategies so that you can dodge the pitfalls:

  • How to state your vision simply.
  • How to cast your vision convincingly.
  • How to repeat your vision regularly.
  • How to celebrate your vision systematically.
  • How to embrace your vision personally.

Many of us have good ideas, even great ones. The difficult part is putting them into practice and keeping that vision clear and visible to your organization--whether that's a business or a church--when there are so many things in the day-to-day living of that vision that can distract from it.

Making Vision Stick offers valuable, practical tips and case studies. This is a book you'll want to highlight and dog-ear and pass around as you learn how to propel your organization toward the vision God has granted you.

Vision is about what could be and should be, but life is about right this minute. The test of a true leader is in keeping that vision on track, day in and day out.

"I've been reading this book as part of the executive coaching program I'm involved in. It's very practical and easy to digest. There are several takeaways that are helpful in my visioning process. I'd recommend reading it in tandem with Andy Stanley's "Visioneering.""
