Why Are Your Gatherings So Different? Books That Have Shaped Leadership Network, Part 2

September 24, 2013

Who are the conceptual thinkers that have helped shape Leadership Network's unique approach of moving from ideas to implementation to impact? Since our founding in 1984 we have become the nation’s leading catalyst for connecting innovative church leaders. Our primary conceptual pioneers are Peter Drucker, Everett Rogers, and Lyle Schaller.

Leadership Network's CEO, Dave Travis (pictured right), recently presented a list that he describes as some of the key titles that have shaped, and will continue to shape, our work with our clients (church leaders we serve, also known as innovation partners).

Yesterday we shared Part 1 of this list. Over the next three days we will share three more parts of this list with you (with subsequent issues here: Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5). We hope you can benefit from this list personally, while also getting a deeper look at the heart and soul of Leadership Network.

Part 2: Meeting Design and Group Process
