BOOK REVIEW: AXIOM Powerful Leadership Proverbs

by on Dec.19, 2012, under Leadership

My senior pastor gave us all a copy of AXIOM a couple of year’s ago. I’m keen to have another read over the holidays, because I remember it being such a profound collection of leadership proverbs.


“Toss out all your texts on leadership by theorists and read this masterpiece again and again. Bill serves up solid content, not cliches; axioms, not merely anecdotes. I love this book! The distilled wisdom is pure gold-classic Hybels.”
-Rick Warren


I completely agree. It is full of practical stuff for leaders of all ages.



The book is divided into 4 categories:

1. Vision and Strategy

eg. Hire 10’s

2. Teamwork and Communication

eg. Speed of the leader speed of the team

3. Activity and Assessment

eg. Find the critic’s kernel of truth

4. Personal Integrity

eg. Obi-Wan Kenobi isn’t for hire


What are YOU looking forward to reading these holidays? Have a blessed and safe Christmas.

“Jesus is the reason for the season”
