Book Description

A vision. You as a leader may have it, but has your organization caught it? If a leader's vision is all about what could be and what should be, why are you buried under what is?

Noted author and pastor Andy Stanley points out that if followers don't get the vision, it's because the leaders haven't delivered it. He reveals the three reasons vision doesn't stick. And then he delivers three ways to make vision stick, to make you a leader worth following:

1. Cast vision strategically: defining your vision.
2. Celebrate vision systematically: regularly rejoicing in the successes
3. Live your vision continuously: putting your vision into practice in your own life

With Making Vision Stick, you'll learn how to propel you and your organization forward on the vision God has granted you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Leadership Tips 14 Oct. 2009
Format:Hardcover
This little book doesn't take much time to read, but the advice will stay with you for a very long time. It's simple clear approach, in bite sized concepts, allow you to easily digest all that is being shared by the author. I recommend anyone new to leadership of any kind, or in charge of a project, club or of mentoring, should read this book at least twice.

3.0 out of 5 stars three and a half stars, if I could 24 Aug. 2007
By Graverobber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I always count on Andy Stanley to have something to say that will be practical and helpful. This book did not disappoint in this regard. He reminds us in the church -- and really anyone who has a vision for a family, organization, or company -- that the work is not done once the vision is clear. The vision takes reinforcement and reminders. There are signs for which to watch that suggest the vision is slipping and needs attention. The message of the book is worthwhile.

However, the book's length would be more appropriate for an article in a periodical than a book for separate publication. Thus, for this particular topic, I'd recommend looking for articles online or in business or church leadership periodicals first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recapture the Vison 14 Aug. 2007
By Charles H. Thompson III - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A few years back, we established a Biblical purpose for our youth ministry. It has been our guide to stay focused and on track to do the work of God. This year, we had a youth leadership retreat to plan and evaluate. I read this book before the retreat and it helped me communicate better our purpose and gave many ideas to continue the process. As Andy says, "Vision does not stick without constant care and attention." I would highly recommend this book! It gave me renewed passion about our purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Will Stick With Me 13 Dec. 2008
By Matthew R. Perry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
At the close of each year through the first few weeks of the following year, I prayerfully seek God's will and desire for our church. I find myself reading through the Scriptures with an intentionality of understanding what God has for the church in general as well as our church specifically in where we are located.

God brings along books to me as well that are priceless. The latest book is Making Vision Stick by Andy Stanley. Having only read one other book by Stanley (Visioneering) -- and that was years ago -- I approached this book without much bias or even expectation.

Yet I would highly recommend this short book. He recommends three ways to help vision stick:

* Cast vision strategically: defining your vision
* Celebrate vision systematically: regularly rejoicing in the successes
* Live your vision continuously: putting your vision into practice in your own life.

He goes on to note how the vision statement for the church must be simple and memorable. He notes how it is better to have vision statement simple and incomplete rather than complete but too long to remember. It is up to the leader to help those following him to see the vision the leader has embraced.

4.0 out of 5 stars Practical book on vision 2 Feb. 2008
By Life Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I read Andy's Visioneering several years ago to help me get my hands around vision. This book is much more practical as it takes the principles in Visioneering and condenses them down to simple, doable steps.
Andy's books on vision have encouraged me to write a book on personal vision as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars good quick read. 20 Oct. 2007
By Chad Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is a very quick read. It is a good book and Stanley gives a quick but brief look into casting vision. It is worth reading but if you are looking for a more in depth look at how to cast vision he has better books for it.
