No one can deny that friendships are powerful relationships of influence. Why not strategically incorporate friendship within a philosophy of leadership? People long for relational models of leadership, yet few specific methodologies have been developed. This book examines the friendship of God with humanity, and the leadership of Jesus with his disciples, to whom he declared, "I no longer call you servants . . . Instead, I have called you friends" (John 15:15). In response to this enduring example of the Divine bringing together both friendship and leadership, this book presents an unexplored model of leadership for the Christian practitioner: Friendship Leadership. The authors of Friendship Leadership share research, historical examples, and their personal experiences with this leadership model, as they describe both the trials and triumphs. Through this process, the book addresses the primary barriers a leader might experience when utilizing the Friendship Leadership model. Finally, the authors offer a guide for how to incorporate friendship into their leadership, strengthening others as they follow the example of our great Leader. The result is a transformational way of leading that nurtures relationships.

If you've ever fallen in love with the wrong person, been held back by your insecurities, endured the pressures of family, dealt with the loss of a loved one, or fought to overcome obsessive behaviours in yourself or in others, then you've participated in the folly of life. In other words, you've undertaken a role in the high drama - and comedy - of a Shakespeare play. Covering such universal subjects as identity, the battle of the sexes, family relationships, love, loss and death, Maguire shows how the dilemmas illustrated in the bard's classic tragedies, comedies and histories can help readers explore their own emotions and judgements. Together, Maguire and Shakespeare offer suggestions, comfort, empathy, and encouragement as they set out a timeless principle for living. To read Shakespeare is to understand what it means to be human. To read "Where There's a Will There's a Way" is to better understand how to deal with it.

Building on two decades of original research into workplace issues and friendship patterns, sociologist and consultant Dr. Jan Yager offers insights into how to succeed by mastering workplace relationships. Based on an international survey of 400 men and women and over 100 interviews, Yager discovered a relationship unique to the workplace and business. She calls it a workship--more connected than an acquaintance but not as intimate as a friend. Workships, especially positive ones, help work to be more productive and more fun. Yager is also the author of Business Protocol, When Friendship Hurts, and Friendshifts, translated into 10 languages, among other titles. Best-selling author Don Gabor, praising Yager's book, writes: "Who's That Sitting at My Desk? is the best researched and most useful book on getting along with friends and foes at work that I've ever read. Don't go to work without it!" Bibliography, resources, and index.

Everyone has been wounded. Some wounds recall childhood hurts; some are more recent. They may be personal through family or close friends, or they can be generated by workplace issues with a boss or coworker. No matter where they originate, woundedness is a human malady stemming from our brokenness and it makes us question the very purpose of the hurts we experience. Come along with the author as she takes us into one man's journey of being wounded and how his story affects ours. Joseph was a man, just like us, who experienced the depth of painful circumstances and went on to a height he never dreamed. As we study his life, we learn that God was after his heart, just as He is after ours and mine. Where there is adversity, there is fear. But God desires to transform our fear into faith. He pursues us in the depths of pain in order to bring us to His glory. Even though our hearts have been wounded by people, we have a God who heals our wounds and, through the process of fellowship with Him, shows us His heart.
