He exposes the hidden roadblocks, structures, and goofy thinking that sabotage even the best intentioned teams. Then, with time-tested and proven strategies, he shows what it takes to get (and keep) a board, staff, and congregation on the same page. Whatever your situation; from start-up phase, to mid-sized, to megachurch, Osborne has been there. As the pastor of North Coast Church, he’s walked his board, staff, and congregation through the process. Now, with warm encouragement and penetrating insights, he shares his secrets to building and maintaining a healthy and unified ministry team that sticks together for the long haul. 1.

Using the same characters as those found in Miller’s other bestseller, The Secret and one new character, a retired Special Forces Commander, this work aims to help team leaders and team members create high-performing teams. The core message is that Talent, Skills, and Community are all essential to team success, and that team leaders and leaders supervising or training team leaders, need to develop all three in order to create such teams. This work presents a radical message in the team literature and in the practice of most organizations. Most team books focus on such things as getting clear about team purpose and team member roles, not the importance of creating a sense of community in a team. Miller offers concrete suggestions for building teams where people know each other deeply, server each other willingly, and genuinely care for each other. The reader learns of the value true affection and compassion bring to a team and how crucial that bond is to any team’s success. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bob Dunsworth.

An unlikely team of misfit players, and the coach fighting to hold them all together… The All Nation Team tells the story of the first fully integrated, ´´post-racial´´ baseball team, very loosely based on an actual team that played in the years before World War I. In his first season as head coach of the All Nations team, former slave George Grunion must contend with racist crowds, flagging team morale, his own loneliness, and even the ghost of the previous head coach. His players are now the only family he has left, ever since his wife walked out on him two decades ago. And if George can´t hold the All Nations together, he loses more than his job. He´ll miss his chance to fulfill the prophecy made by his prescient center-fielder Mack - that he will be reunited with his estranged family before the 1918 season ends. If George doesn´t score this final run, he loses everything. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Slone. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/013127/bk_acx0_013127_sample.mp3.

Cassie must learn that you can´t ´´fix´´ someone else after a girl with Asperger´s joins her softball team in the fourth and final book of the Home Team series from New York Times best-selling author and sports-writing legend Mike Lupica. Cassie Bennett is great at being in charge. She always knows what to do to lead her teams to victory, keep her many groups of friends together, or fix any problem that comes her way. So when Sarah Milligan, an autistic girl with unreal softball skills, joins Cassie´s team, Cassie´s sure she can help her fit in with the team. But before long it´s obvious that being around so many people is really hard for Sarah, and the more Cassie tries to reach out and involve her, the more Sarah pushes her away, sometimes literally. It doesn´t help that Cassie´s teammates aren´t as interested in helping Sarah as they are in making sure they make it to the new softball All-Star Tournament that´ll be televised just like the Little League World Series. Soon no one seems to even want Sarah on the team anymore besides Cassie, and the harder Cassie tries to bring everyone together, the worse things seem to get. Cassie Bennett never backs down from a challenge, but can she realize that maybe the challenge isn´t fixing a problem in someone else, but in herself? Or will her stubbornness lead her to lose more than just softball games? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rebekkah Ross.
