Synopsis:Invest Your Heartbeats Wisely offers guidelines, based on biblical principles, to help you lead in business and live as an ethical person. Etzel discusses how to effectively lead an organization, how to create a corporate culture of accountability, and the importance of mentoring, along with advice on every aspect of running a company, from getting started and hiring and motivating employees to letting go and redirecting when you are ready to exit the business.
Review:Somehow I missed the part about biblical principles when I requested this book but I'm glad I wasn't deterred. While I'm not big on the bible I agree with a lot of the advice Theo Etzel gives. Easy to read and based on a lot of common sense principles this book is a nice starter for new leaders.
While there are biblical references throughout the book they don't take away from the message for those not religious. This book gives great tips on how to lead and not "manage" staff. I liked the personal examples and easy way of sharing with us the leadership strategies that have made his business successful.
