From the Back Cover
A vision. You as a leader may have it, but has your organization caught it? If a leader's vision is all about what could be and what should be, why are you buried under what is? Noted author and pastor Andy Stanley points out that if followers don't get the vision, it's because the leaders haven't delivered it. He reveals the three reasons vision doesn't stick. And then he delivers three ways to make vision stick, to make you a leader worth following: 1. Cast vision strategically: defining your vision. 2. Celebrate vision systematically: regularly rejoicing in the successes 3. Live your vision continuously: putting your vision into practice in your own life With Making Vision Stick, you'll learn how to propel you and your organization forward on the vision God has granted you.

Top customer reviews
God brings along books to me as well that are priceless. The latest book is Making Vision Stick by Andy Stanley. Having only read one other book by Stanley (Visioneering) -- and that was years ago -- I approached this book without much bias or even expectation.
Yet I would highly recommend this short book. He recommends three ways to help vision stick:
* Cast vision strategically: defining your vision
* Celebrate vision systematically: regularly rejoicing in the successes
* Live your vision continuously: putting your vision into practice in your own life.
He goes on to note how the vision statement for the church must be simple and memorable. He notes how it is better to have vision statement simple and incomplete rather than complete but too long to remember. It is up to the leader to help those following him to see the vision the leader has embraced.
What makes this book good is that:
1. You can read it in 30mins
2. It's a great summary of all the key components for communicating vision covered in Andy's Visioneering book.
3. It's really small and therefore portable and easy to pass out to your staff or leadership team.
Great little book. Highly recommend it. (but NOT in place of Visioneering of course)
