Publisher's Summary

Richard Stearns became president of World Vision US in 1998 after spending the first half of his career as a successful executive at corporate giants such as Gillette, Parker Brothers, The Franklin Mint, and Lenox Inc. At World Vision, he inspired a culture of outcome-focused management. His leadership in calling the American church to respond to some of the greatest crises of our time - notably the HIV and AIDS pandemic and the global refugee crisis - challenged other Christian leaders to embrace a bold vision for compassion, mercy, and justice in their work. 

During his 20 years at World Vision, Stearns discovered what brought him the most joy and purpose in his career was not the business successes or professional accolades but the opportunity to help others flourish and to participate in a cause that was bigger than himself. In Lead Like It Matters to God, Stearns shares the principles he learned over the course of a remarkable career leading some of the largest organizations in both business and ministry. Through honest and captivating stories of his life journey, he demonstrates why the values Christian leaders embrace in their places of work are more important than the success they achieve.

Values driven leadership is what we need.

This book was simplistic, but not in a negative way. It resonated deeply and encouraged me to keep on choosing ‘faithful’ as my barometer for leadership.

Crisp and organised. A little Generic.

Experience based. Insights that allow for quick re-listening or reading. But a little Generic (could have been half the size).
