The Art of Admonishment

Nancy Ortberg of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church recently gave a sermon called "Every Life Needs a Truth-Teller." It contains excellent advice about telling people the truth--admonishing them well if you will. Get the audio version here or the video version here. You can apply much of this sermon to relationships with employees.

Nancy is the author of an excellent new book called Unleashing the Power of Rubber Bands: Lessons in Non-Linear Leadership. Last year, I also featured another of her sermons that dealt with the gift of work. You might also enjoy it. Click here to read that posting.
