Summary

If conventional leadership wisdom is to be believed, Hobby Lobby shouldn't work. So why does it?

David Green, the founder of Hobby Lobby and an unlikely leader, grew his company from a $600 startup to a $8 billion company that gives 50 percent of its profits away to fund initiatives all over the world. He blazed his own path in business, drawn not from business gurus but from the pages of Scripture.

In this inspirational book, David Green challenges talented leaders with hearts committed to Christ to consider this question: What if God wants to use you to do a new, even greater work? To raise up and encourage the next generation of leaders, Green shares twelve unconventional principles that drive Hobby Lobby. These core principles can open doors to greater success in business and life.

Whether you lead a business or a nonprofit, a small business or a multinational corporation, a start-up or a department, this book will show you how breaking the conventional "rules" of business may be the best decision you ever make.

Very God driven book

I really enjoyed listening to this book. I especially like the fact that he and his family place God in front of how they run this business which clearly proves to work. Following Gods principals is a MUST ! Thank you

The best Christian leadership book outside the Bible

I believe for me that this book was a divine appointment and I only just heard about it yesterday, so I purchased it immediately and felt that I could learn some insights into biblical teaching on business. The principles taught in this book are the same questions I’ve been asking for weeks on not only how to apply excellent leader ship to business but also on how to set my business up in a way that when I am gone that it will continue to keep going. I believe that this book has sent me in the right direction to achieving those goals. i’m more excited about my future as the pieces of the puzzle come together and will use these ideas to grow my ice cream business here in the United States and around the world.
