Publisher's Summary

The best leaders not only lead well but also reflect on their leadership long enough and thoughtfully enough to articulate what philosophies cause them to do so. Whether serving in the marketplace or in ministry, as executives or rank-and-file employees, as salaried staff or volunteer servants, they can pinpoint the rationale for their actions and decisions with the ease of reciting their home address.

    "Amazingly inspiring!"

    This has been one of the best purcahses I have made in a long time. I am only a third of the way through and I have already gone back to re-listen to sections.
    Don't rush through this one--take your time so you enjoy what the author has to say. Much more importantly, his purpose is to inspire you to write your own Axioms--short phrases that concisely sum up wisdom gained from joyous or painful experiences so you can remember the lesson learned in a flash without having to relive the entire experience. Those Axioms then help in future decision-making.

    "A Must-Read for Any Leader"

    Hybels has done a remarkable thing in Axiom - he's melted-down seventy-six, tested and experience-based, real world leadership truths into 5-minute, readable and applicable chapters. I began incorporating these principles immediately and experienced instant, positive results. The short chapters make this is a great read for people who don't like to read! Leader, you owe it to yourself (and to those you lead) to digest this book!

    "This is a religious book"
    Would you try another book from Bill Hybels and/or Larry Black?

    Not particularly


    What could Bill Hybels have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Religion is great, but I wasn't expecting this to be so church oriented... Which lost me on being able to relate.


    Any additional comments?

    May want to reference that this is a very Christian centered book.

    "Love this Book!"
    Would you listen to Axiom again? Why?

    Yes! There is a lot of helpful, applicable advice here.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Axiom?

    As I listened to the first 35 minutes, I apply 5 principles to my leadership method and saw instant results.


    Have you listened to any of Larry Black’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.

    "Excellent on church leadership"

    This is a great book. Every church leader should listen to it. This was my second time going through it.

    The practical leadership lessons are amazing.

    Thank you Bill Hybels.

    "not a business book"

    I thought the book would be on proverbs, such as "never let a crisis go to waste". Instead, it is all about cliche words, God, church, and Christ!!!

    Ever since subscribing to Audible I've relished my 90+ minutes commuting each day. I listen mainly to Business and Personal Development titles as well as the occasional biography.

    "Axiom - Why I turned it off!"

    I should never have bought this audiobook and wouldn't if I'd learned more about the author.

    I wanted a good business leadership audiobook ..not one that sounded like it was a preaching.
