In each episode, we are going to work to give you one easy to understand concept and tell you at least one story that illustrates the concept being put into practice. The concept will be easy to understand, but it will require your very best self and a good deal of practice over time if you are going to implement it.

    Writer's Series - Chuck DeGroat

    It seems fitting that Chuck DeGroat’s new book about narcissism and the church would come out in 2020 as we’re all noticing the fault lines in our life together like never before.


    Chuck (psychologist, professor, pastor) reminds us that this isn’t new; that “we swim in the cultural waters of narcissism” all the time. He helps us to see how narcissism affects us, how misunderstanding it makes it worse and how we can respond to it with both grace and boundaries.
    We explore how healthy leaders can ask "How do you experience me?" Then listen non-defensively to the honest feedback.
    We hope you'll listen in.

    Writer's Series - Mandy Smith

    Being a leader means being an expert, having it all together and getting things done . . . or at least that’s what we sometimes think. Pastor and author Mandy Smith guides us into a way of thinking about leadership that is centered in vulnerability, deep reflection and slow growth. She reminds us that weakness can be a ministry resource and that all ministry begins with a gut-level cry for help to God. 
    We hope you’ll listen in.

    Leading in a Politically Charged Culture

    Leading in a Politically Charged Culture

    Everywhere we go, we hear stories from leaders about how a politically charged culture is poisoning relationships, splitting organizations and creating stress far above normal. Yet, our country needs leaders at all levels who can manage themselves in polarization by thinking clearly, acting out of deeply held principles and staying connected to people who see things differently. And that’s a lot easier said than done. In this episode, we discuss attitudes and practices that will help us lead effectively in these challenging times.

    Writer’s series – Steve Cuss

    Do we love people by tolerating their terrible behavior? How do we stop demonizing people who get in our way? What about when I am the one who is sabotaging change?
    In our conversation with Steve Cuss, author of Managing Leadership Anxiety: Yours and Theirs, we look at the reality of sabotage in the process of leading change. Because anxiety spreads in a group and because typically the most anxious person in the room holds the most power, managing ourselves in the face of sabotage is always the key to leadership survival.
    We hope you'll listen in.
     
    Conversation Overview Anxiety: even more contagious than COVID Does love mean I have to tolerate people's terrible behavior? How do I stop demonizing people who get in my way? Advantages of systems theory for leadership Working our way out of double binds Managing ourselves in triangles (and don't miss Steve's great definition of a triangle!)
