News & Insights

Jim Collins's book for business leaders, Good to Great, has been widely read and quoted, even in theological education. Last summer, In Trust ran an article about his follow-up monongraph that applies more directly to nonprofit organizations -- Good to Great and the Social Sectors. If you are affiliated with one of In Trust's member institutions, you can read last summer's article here. (You will need to register and log in if you want to read the article.)

Jim CollinsJust recently G. Douglass Lewis brought to my attention an interview with Collins that appeared in Fortune magazine. The interview, which you can read online, is titled "Jim Collins: How great companies turn crisis into opportunity."

Lewis is president emeritus of Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C., and chair of the board of In Trust. He has written a new article about how theological schools can thrive during a crisis that will appear in the next issue of In Trust magazine. It will be out in early April.

This webinar details the knowledge and practical next steps to strengthen workplace culture as a result of closing the trust gap.
