When leaders inspire their teams with a vision of what is possible, passion meets production.....and truly great things happen.
As director of ministries at Lakewood Church in Houston--the largest and fastest-growing church in America--Craig Johnson oversees thousands of staff members, lay leaders, and volunteers.  He knows that meeting short-term goals is important, but he also recognizes that teams grow and grow stronger when they have a big dream to fulfill.  After all, people can live with disappointment, but not without hope.

Are you challenging your team (and yourself) to dream? Are you inspiring those who follow you? Lead Vertically shows you how to motivate your team by consistently and clearly communicating that the best are ahead.  You'll learn how to foster personal trust and turn the tide of negativity with tools that are easily adaptable for teams of any size.  Plus, you'll find tips and exercises for recruiting, training, and strengthening teams.
It all starts with you......because building up---leading vertically----begins in the heart.
