    Bonus Episode - The Most Important Thing of All

    Bonus Episode - The Most Important Thing of All

    Welcome to this special episode in which Brent shares a reflection on two important issues that affect the expansion of the global Christian church.

    1. Culture and Leadership Development Programs and Designs
    2. Jesus

    He asks the question, "Should leadership development look similar from culture to culture?"

    No well-designed program will work effectively in another culture. Because a well-designed program has gone deeply into the needs and opportunities of that culture.

    The gospel is transcultural. In every culture we will need to build leaders who can serve well.

    He reminds us that most importantly God's love in us, His love for us, and His love through us must permeate all that we do as Christian leaders. It must guide us in our attitudes, actions, words, and motivations.

    Principle #18

    Principle #18

    Welcome to Principle #18 on the Burst Leadership Podcast.
    Brent will be exploring the last principle of effective leader development today, but come back tomorrow for a special bonus episode!

    Principle #18 - Effective leader development is a complex, experiential collage.

    Leader development is not a simple procedure of moving through a series of predictable and successive points. Leader development is a complex and multifaceted, experiential collage of diverse people, relationships, influences, assignments, tasks, responsibilities, duties, deadlines, opportunities, pressures, crises, blessings, sufferings, rejections, successes, mistakes, etc., that all work together to build the emerging leader.

    Principles #16 and #17

    Principles #16 and #17

    In today's episode, Brent will be focusing on Principles #16 and #17, two more principles under the "Intentional" group.

    Principle #16 - People grow in different ways and their callings are different.
    Therefore, we must use a variety of learning experiences to assist emerging leaders’ transformation, and their learning goals should reflect their unique callings.

    Principle #17 - Both team and individual learning contexts must be provided.
    The most effective leader has learned to integrate the discipline required for working in teams with the discipline of individual initiative.
    Therefore, our design must balance individual and team contexts for learning.

    Principle #15

    Principle #15

    Welcome to this episode of the Burst Leadership Podcast. Today Brent is sharing on Principle #15, another principle in the "Intentional" group.

    Principle #15 - Building leaders takes time.
    It takes a lifetime to build a mature and seasoned leader. Thus, our goal in short-term training is not to achieve final and complete maturity, but to lay a sound and comprehensive foundation in the emerging leader’s life. Moreover, our goal is to help him become a lifelong learner who will properly build on the foundation for the rest of his life.

    Principle #14

    Principle #14

    In today's episode, Brent explores Principle #14, the first principle in the "Intentional" group.

    Principle #14 - Responsibility for learning and growing is shared by the emerging leader and the church community.
    Fundamentally, building leaders involves providing opportunities for growth: opportunities for learning, experiences, responsibilities, relationships, observing, suffering, etc. These opportunities will not magically produce growth and there is no guarantee that specific individuals will take advantage of them, but if we do not intentionally provide opportunities there will be little growth.

    Are you providing opportunities for growth in the church community of the leaders you are building?

    Principle #13

    Principle #13

    Welcome to the Burst Leadership podcast! In today's episode, Brent is diving into the next principle in the "Instructional" group, Principle #13.

    Principle #13 - Engagement brings change.
    Emerging leaders must be engaged in the process. They cannot be passive recipients.
    They must actively take responsibility for their own learning and be engaged in their hearts (broken and accountable before God and the community); in their heads (the various learning tasks) and in their hands (actively doing ministry).
    We must design transformational experiences that will help them to learn, do and be.
