This book is hands down the best book I've read on teamwork up until this point. My first impression of the book was, wow! this is a really heavy book. I was drawn to it because of the topic but was even more drawn to it because of the physical quality it possessed. I thought, "This has got to be a good book if they used quality materials to make it." Now to the meat of my thoughts, Witt's voice is graciously authoritative, coming from years of experience, not letting the reader shrink into their excuses. The book builds on itself in a natural progression. It starts with "own it". Leading great teams start with leading ourselves well. It starts with an inward focus; develop yourself, work on your heart before trying to help others. Inward before outward. Witt speaks life without glossing over issues we need to address. The chapters are short, which is helpful, because the information needs time to digest fully. The discussion questions at the end of each chapter are great for causing personal reflection but then doesn't stop there. Like the pattern of the book, the questions move from inward reflection to outward dialogue. Just when I was concerned there was too heavy of a focus on productivity and task management, the tone of the book shifted to relationship. Once again, the flow of the book was perfect. Inward toward outward. There are so many practical application points throughout the book. Every chapter is useful. This book is not only for pastors, staff and ministry leaders. It can be applied to every person, regardless of their position within the church or within an organization. All methods are great for inside the church and outside the church in any workplace. This is a book I would highly recommend you spend lots of time with. Take it in the small chunks its divided into and allow it to change how you function both personally and as a member of a team.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This has in no way influenced my review. All thoughts are my own.

This book totally resonated with me and probably would do the same with every pastor I know. It is so easy to neglect our own souls in our desire to perform and be available for needs all around us. Highly recommended!!
