Never settle for good when great is your calling.
How do you rise to the top of your profession? How do you become the best or at least better than you were? Is it all just talent? Luck? Right place, right time or who you know? All of these can certainly have impact on your success. But what if you could focus on small, yet hugely influential details that will propel you and your organization to success?
Attention to Detail with Eric Byrd is the manifestation of exactly that! Byrd has worked with churches - praise teams, worship leaders, pastors, deacons and elder boards. He's also worked with non-faith based organizations - schools, individuals, musicians and up and comers. He started VIP Consulting to equip leaders on how to lead better. This podcast is an extension of that mission.
If you are an artist, worship leader or a creative type, a leader, a teacher or educator, an individual that wants to stand out in a crowded room, pay attention to detail. Listen to Attention to Detail with Eric Byrd www.ericbyrd.com

5....or 6 Details on Why The Truth Matters
The truth centers your compass - it is hard to lead people without truth, it is dangerous to make decisions based solely on feelings, thoughts, outside information. start with a value system and build your life on that.
the truth is your integrity - people may not like you, they may not like your decision making, they may not like your leadership, but always be willing to give people the truth. If i care about you, the mission, the church, the organization i’m leading, i don’t always give you what you want to hear but I give you the truth
the truth is power - rarely do I lead people out of my feelings but out of my power. And my power lies in my ability to be truthful. When I’m critical, when I’m loving, my power is in my words and those words are rooted in giving my team my people my family the truth.
the truth is liberating - the truth rarely carries weight. A lie you have to live with until it’s dead. then you wonder how long do you have to keep it up, what happens when the truth is found out, etc.
the truth has no expiration date - long after you have stopped leading people moved on, gotten fired, people will respect you - even love you because you gave them the truth. how awful would your family be if you only fed them ice cream and no meat to break down?
Love hearing Eric’s humor and thoughts
Eric shares practical wisdom in a hilarious and thoughtful way. I enjoy listening to the banter between he and his son, also. Keep those episodes coming!
Definitely worth a listen. You’ll find yourself challenged to do even the small things better and eventually become a better version of yourself.
Great podcast with insightful knowledge of how to how oneself! Amazing...5 stars!
