Internationally Best-Selling Books by James C. Hunter:


The Culture:
Creating Excellence with Those You Lead

The long-awaited sequel to the international bestselling book, The Servant, has finally arrived! John Daly, along with the "Gang of 7" return to the monastery for more lessons from the wise monk, Simeon. Learn with the "Gang" the crucial importance of culture in any organization and discover the steps necessary to creating a culture of excellence through growing leaders and building community. As the weekend progresses, the group is surprised to learn that only one of the participants managed to achieve sustainable changes in his life as a result of the teaching and experiences at the retreat two years prior. This realization confuses and distresses the group, so they spend time deep-diving into the topics of human change and growth, creating excellence, servant leadership and high-performing teams. Join the "Gang" as they uncover why people do not become better leaders by reading books or listening to lectures, rather through sincere desire, intentional, habit-forming efforts and friction.
