Synopses & Reviews
Laurie Beth Jones's first business bestseller, Jesus, CEO, made her the writer of choice for the large group of readers interested in bringing a spiritual dimension into their lives and business practices. In The Path, she again -- to great success -- combines powerful spiritual inspirations with sound, practical advice for helping individuals and the enterprises they lead to achieve their highest purposes and potentials.
The Path is a complete guide to finding and fulfilling one's mission in life and business through the formulation of a succinct and focused plan. While many business and self-help bestsellers have stressed the importance of writing a mission statement, The Path is the only book to guide readers carefully through every step of the often arduous process. Beginning with a discussion of three key elements of a successful mission statement (a single sentence in length; simple enough for a twelve-year-old to understand; and something you could recite at gunpoint), Jones goes on to examine the concept of destiny, the questions to be asked in finding a mission, the process of fulfilling a mission, and the overcoming of perils like discouragement, distraction, and fear. The Path is essential reading for every business -- and every individual -- seeking a clearer and more powerful way in the world.
"Practical, useful help for Christians and nonbelievers alike. Jones has made her mark, and her books are here to stay."--Christian Retailing
Written by the author of the bestselling "Jesus, CEO", this "BusinessWeek" bestseller presents the first book on creating a mission statement to guide oneself (or one's business) through work and life.
The author of Jesus, CEO combines powerful spiritual insight and inspirational, practical advice on how to achieve one's highest goals and potential in business and in life, discussing the three key elements of a successful mission statement and explaining how to fulfill a mission.
Individuals and companies have been learning what history has demonstrated all along--that people or groups with carefully defined missions have always led and surpassed those who have none. Yet the process of outlining that mission statement has been, up to now, an arduous one that all too few have committed the time, energy, and resources to undertake.
In The Path, best-selling author Laurie Beth Jones provides inspiring and practical advice to lead readers through every step of both defining and fulfilling a mission. With more than ten years' experience in assisting groups and individuals, Jones offers clear, step-by-step guidance that can make writing a mission statement take a matter of hours rather than months or years.
Rich with humor, exercises, mediations, and case histories, The Path is essential reading for anyone seeking a lighter, clearer way in the world.
