by Dr. Vince Mumford
INVEST! is a captivating parable about what great leaders must do to solve today’s most pressing challenges. It offers wisdom that is easy to understand in a fun and engaging format―wisdom that can be applied to any group, business, or organization.
In a modern-day retelling of the Parable of the Talents, Ray Sonnen is asked to lead a struggling business. When he accepts the position, he discovers a complex set of problems that threaten the very survival of the company. How will Ray turn things around? How do you spark the power of your people to achieve their best?
INVEST! is based on the time-tested notion that people are the energy that fuels organizations and that great leaders invest in their people. The book provides a four-step program to help leaders create innovative and accountable work environments where employees are empowered to develop solutions by using their gifts.
