Publisher's Summary

Fearing this would be the final time he'd address his management team and board as CEO, Leo Perkins prepared to give the presentation of his life.

"So, tell us your new plan," the chairman said, "and explain why it's better than your last one."

In Through Colored Glasses, author Tom Harper addresses a leadership challenge identified in Proverbs 16:2: "All a person's ways seem pure to them, but motives are weighed by the Lord."

Leo Perkins wants to save the company, but his real motivation is to prevent a blow to his ego. His colleagues are dominated by their own ambitions and fears. It's as if they all wear colored glasses, blinding them to reality.

In a story full of twists and confrontations, one executive boldly speaks truth to Leo. Her persistence - and the Word of God - lead to an outcome no one expects.

In the afterword, the author presents scripture-based lessons to help leaders unlock reality in their own organizations:

  • How to reveal people's real desires
  • How to use God's Word in everyday leadership
  • Discovering the hidden motivations behind people's words and actions

"Infusing Patrick Lencioni's leadership fable motif with marketplace discipleship, Tom Harper's Through Colored Glasses encourages business leaders who follow Christ to realize their impact at work. A weary CEO, a mutinous CFO, a consultant, and a praying manager meet at the intersection of faith and corporate America, demonstrating how biblical witness is effective even in difficult places." (Thom S. Rainer, president and CEO of LifeWay Christian Resources; best-selling author of I Am a Church Member and Simple Church)

My favorite thus far!

I am on a journey, reading 60 books this year about leadership. Through colored glasses is my ninth book and my favorite thus far. The author magnificently portrayed a story about several leaders working through their different emotions as they each faced adversity. While also masterfully teaching the reader how to navigate fear, treachery, and pending doom with Grace and calm. Daniel Greenberg is very animated and definitely brought life to the characters. I will probably listen to this book several more times this year because its just that good.
