    The Complete Leader - Fr. Nathaniel Haslam, Part 1

    Despite the millions of Google "hits" about "Leaders and Balance," is balance even the right goal? Are most leaders balanced?  The answer appears to be NO, and NO.  Fr. Haslam brings tremendous insight into the "blueprint" for the Executive Disciple leader (which is Jesus Christ), the 4 pillars of Integral Formation, and how this framework can help us develop into authentic, complete leaders.

    Faith as a Company Value: Tim Dumas, CONCLUSION

    Faith as a Company Value: Tim Dumas, CONCLUSION

    Tim Dumas shares more great examples of leadership and integrating faith and work, as he talks about leading a bible study for his football team at a public university; the importance of LOVING the people you work with; "Frog and Dog"; great coaches; and leaders who think they are "too nice" when in fact they are being "too selfish."  A rousing and inspiring interview!
