Summary

People - frustrating, confusing, disappointing, complicated - are the most difficult part of leadership, and 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.

One of the most HONEST books about loving people!

The author opens by admitting the world in which we live would be so much easier without people. Humans complicate everything, capable of so much good and so much evil at the same time. I found this book so brutally honest that at times I wanted to stop listening and return it. It's easy to love people who agree with us and tell us what we want to hear, but those aren't the people who will teach us to grow stronger, more loving, more faithful. There's no sugar-coating here on how tough other people can be sometimes, and looking at ourselves with that same lens.

good book for personal reflection

I really liked this book but maybe not for how to love others but to better lead myself and for self discovery. also helps in loving others but being a narcissist this was very helpful.
