Books that bring spirituality and common sense to the table with resources from a different direction at every chapter. Fitting the old cliché “Good things come in small packages”, Purposeful Relationships packs useful power in every Purpose section…there are over 20 of these Purpose sections or chapters in the little book that gives readers a taste of how to accomplish the change within. A few include Attitude, Courageous, Determination , Imagination.
Each section opens with an applicable quote about a certain philosophy with expansion on that thought and application suggestions. The quotes will be from people with whom you are familiar and develop the credibility of the guidance. Purposeful Relationships is a guide, but not a boring workbook…or a massive collection of boring case studies. The book is attractively formatted with good editing — it may have come as a workbook from a workshop, but WORK isn’t the experience I had in reading the book. When I read each gentle Purpose, absorbed the Elaborate expansion and considered the Action Step, I found this book to fit my ‘study’ pattern. It is easy to go back to a Purpose that I want to review.
The Parenting Pocketbook is another small book that is overflowing with patient guidance to help parents become the leaders they need to be to help their children grow into adults with LOGOS working for them…leaders of tomorrow.
There is so much to be said for consulting, coaching and counseling . Laying the groundwork before or during coaching and counseling with books like these can determine results and the time required to achieve those results. Generously, the author offers more than enough gems of thought for the gentle price of these two books.
Author Howard Crampton, Jr. is a professional who coaches clients using the systems displayed in the book. He generously gives readers a lot of applicable information that would let them move forward and away from the stress and chaos that invades their lives.Crampton’s tone is gentle, without forcing too much information into the topic bringing on confusion. He writes in the forward about the Logos part of his Logos and Leadership system — ” Logos is the gap between unmanifest and manifest, the Divine and man.”
