A podcast connecting the timeless principles of scripture to the timely issues of our day to inspire, educate and motivate those who serve, lead and govern.

King Solomon, the wisest leader to have ever lived, left us with this truth – there is nothing new under the sun and what has been, will be. What was true for him and those who served, led and governed in his day, is just as true for those who serve, lead and govern today. Timeless principles for times like these.

    There Is No Retirement From Our Work

    There Is No Retirement From Our Work

    Jesus said in John 9:4, "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day; the night comes, when no man (or woman) can work."  We must do the same. We can retire from our job - perhaps even quit or get fired from our job. But we can neither quit nor be fired from our work. There is a difference, and  this episode explores and explains why we should never look forward to "retiring." When it comes to our work, there is no such thing.

    Leading In Leadership Like Jesus - The Series | PART ONE: THE POWER OF COMPASSION

    Leading In Leadership Like Jesus - The Series | PART ONE: THE POWER OF COMPASSION

    What does this kind of revolutionary leadership look like? How can we lead as effectively and impactfully as Jesus? As his ambassadors, it should be easy. But for many it not only is not easy, but something to which many in leadership give little to no thought.

    God knows how to make everything succeed. Even your leadership! Check out Part One of my new podcast series... "Leading In Leadership Like Jesus." Jesus didn't do religion. Neither do I. He's a King not a Christian.

    This is the first in the series, "The Power of Compassion."  The power of Jesus rests in the power of his people. The series is designed to help you identify the power that is yours and how to use it to change for the better, the lives of those you lead, serve and represent.

    Just as Jesus did!

    The Leader People Will Follow

    The Leader People Will Follow

    If people follow you because they are paid to follow you, you're not a leader but a paycheck. Great leaders? People will follow them to the moon and back even if they didn't receive a dime because what they receive in return, money could never buy. The greatest leaders throughout history could never afford to pay the thousands who followed them. Yet, together, they changed their world. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is a great example. David hid out in caves, had no money to pay his men, yet hundreds of men followed him from the cave to the kingdom. What endears people to leaders? What will endear them to you? This podcast tells you. And it has nothing to do with money.

    ENCORE: How Satan Takes Down and Takes Out Leaders

    ENCORE: How Satan Takes Down and Takes Out Leaders

    Satan is real. Satan hates you. And when it comes to taking out God's people -- especially those in authority, his plan is sure. His plan has worked since the beginning of time. And many if not most are completely unaware of how he works, when he works and how his brilliancy outshines, outmaneuvers and outlasts the best of leaders. No leader - no matter how many degrees on the wall, endorsements behind their name, years of serving and leading, wealth or pedigree - no leader since the original, Adam, is off-limits. He even tried his tried-and-true plan of takedown on Jesus in the wilderness. But Jesus had his number. This podcast will equip you the same.  If you lead, take heed -- you have a diabolical, crazy smart adversary who knows you better than you know yourself --- get to know him the same so that you can fight back and win.

    What it Takes to Lead Well in Difficult Times: A Conversation on Leadership with Ambassador Ron Kirk

    What it Takes to Lead Well in Difficult Times: A Conversation on Leadership with Ambassador Ron Kirk

    The Honorable Ron Kirk is the first African American elected as Mayor of the City of Dallas. He led the amazing transformation of a sleepy downtown Dallas to a city within a city - brimming with a bustling nightlife, parks, trendy restaurants and attractive downtown living. Unheard of before his term as Mayor. He led major expansion of thoroughfares, led the effort in pulling off what many said could not be done - bringing together voters and populations long at odds, divided by race and socio-economics, across the north/south divide; and, with tremendous opposition winning by a hair, the referendum to build the American Airlines Center, Victory Park --- resulting in a domino effect of economic development, business relocations and the Dallas that many have come to love today. Catching the eye of President Barack Obama, the President would name Mayor Kirk as U.S. Trade Representative.

    Ambassador Kirk shares with us techniques and tools, attributes and skills necessary to lead well - especially needed in the tumultuous political climate today. 

    An intriguing conversation on what it takes to lead, connect and motivate.  A conversation every public servant leader would do well and be blessed to listen. It doesn't get any better. What it takes to lead and finish well.
