Chronicling his 13 years as CEO of Circuit City during its most successful time and sharing his insightful analysis of its downfall, Alan Wurtzel imparts a wisdom that is a must-read for anyone even remotely interested in business. “Good to Great to Gone illustrates the vital importance of listening to your customers. Without them your company has nothing.” ―Tony Hsieh, New York Times bestselling author of Delivering Happiness and CEO of, Inc. How did Circuit City go from a Mom and Pop store with a mere $13,000 investment, to the best performing Fortune 500 Company for any 15-year period between 1965 and 1995, to bankruptcy and liquidation in 2009? What must leaders do not only to take a business from good to great, but to avoid plummeting from great to gone in a constantly evolving marketplace? For almost 50 years, Circuit City was able to successfully navigate the constant changes in the consumer electronics marketplace and meet consumer demand and taste preferences. But with the company’s subsequent decline and ultimate demise in 2009, former CEO Alan Wurtzel has the rare perspective of a company insider in the role of an outsider looking in. Believing that there is no singular formula for strategy, Wurtzel emphasizes the “Habits of Mind” that influence critical management decisions. With key takeaways at the end of each chapter, Wurtzel offers advice and guidance to ensure any business stays on track, even in the wake of disruption, a changing consumer landscape, and new competitors. Part social history, part cautionary tale, and part business strategy guide, Good to Great to Gone: The 60 Year Rise and Fall of Circuit City features a memorable story with critical leadership lessons.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Good is the enemy of great. And that is one of the main reasons why we have so little that becomes great. We don’t have great schools, governments, or companies because it is just so easy to settle for a good life. #2 The good-to-great examples that made the final cut attained extraordinary results. #3 The quest to find the secrets of greatness began with a single company, Walgreens, and its transformation from a mediocre company to a great one. The five-year study yielded many insights, many of which were surprising and contrary to conventional wisdom. #4 I began to assemble a team of researchers. We found eleven good-to-great examples, including Fannie Mae and Walgreens, which surprised us. It is possible to turn good into great in the most unlikely of situations.

Since Jean Lipman-Blumen's The Allure of Toxic Leaders shook the corporate world in 2005, countless articles, books, and Internet blogs have appeared on the topic. Despite such interest and response, no study of toxic leadership had appeared from a Christian point of view until this volume, Kenn Gangel's Surviving Toxic Leaders. Gangel begins by showing that toxic leadership existed throughout biblical history. Making generous use not only of biblical materials but also of contemporary leadership literature, Gangel names the causes and cures of power abuse, cheating, bullying, laziness, and dictatorial behavior in today's leaders. Readers will benefit from Gangel's leadership experience and expertise. He has been a pastor, a college dean (twice), and a college president. Gangel currently edits The Seal, a review of leadership literature. Practical and personal, Surviving Toxic Leaders abounds with stories of real people and their situations. Everyone who has ever had "trouble at work" will benefit from Surviving Toxic Leaders.

Our Father Below is pleased with the work of the demons in the Lowerarchy of hell to create division and contention among the people of Earth in the twenty-first century. However, he is angered by the growing interest in the ideas of humility and zeal that Christian leaders have discovered in the Enemy’s two-thousand-year-old propaganda. These ideas have been formalized into two related, abhorrent concepts: servant leadership and level 5 leadership. Servant leadership describes individuals who begin with a natural desire to serve first, and then conscious choice causes them to aspire to lead. Level 5 leadership, from Good to Great by Jim Collins, combines the paradoxical blend of humility and zeal. Marduk, a thoroughly ruthless and cruel demon, mentors his naïve and hapless nephew Slugtoad. Marduk assigns Slugtoad to a male and a female patient in America who have the potential to be strong Christian leaders. In his letters, Marduk advises Slugtoad to guide the patients away from effective leadership. The first section of the book is comprised of the Marduk letters, while the second section provides the scholarship and research of servant and level 5 leadership.
