Toughest People to Love
How to Understand, Lead, and Love the Difficult People in Your Life
By Chuck DeGroat
About the Book
A practical, "must have" guidebook for anyone in a leadership position.
People—frustrating, confusing, disappointing, complicated—are the most difficult part of leadership; they challenge leaders everywhere, from leaders of many to managers of a few. In this book Chuck DeGroat addresses the flawed nature of people and offers wisdom for leaders of all types in dealing with just about anyone who is difficult to lead and to love.
Toughest People to Love explores the basics of how people "tick," encouraging leaders to examine and take care of themselves so that they can better understand and care for others. Based on DeGroat's wealth of experience as a pastor, professor, and therapist, this book—both wise and practical—is one that countless leaders will go back to time and again for valuable insights and renewed vision.
