    #31 NY Times Best-selling Author & Movie producer Ron Hall (Revisited) shares stories of struggle that has led to growth

    Today's podcast is revisited from season 1 episode 1.

    We are celebrating for two reasons. 

    Ron has launched his own podcast, The Ron Hall Show and we thought if you like this conversation, you might like his show. With action packed storytelling, we will take you on adventures that no Hollywood producer could dare dream. From great museums, mansions and West Texas ranches, to stinking inner city dumpsters and hobo jungles. We’ll be riding in limos, classic pickups, some fine quarter horses, and a bull named tornado. So buckle up your seat belt, and strap on your saddle tight and climb on for the ride of your life. Ron Hall Show

    Second reason, pastors and churches can now show the new 33-minute version of Same Kind of Different as Me during church services. The movie clips and comments by Ron Hall are designed to help pastors talk about betrayal, forgiveness, serving others and racial reconciliation. Watch the trailer at Same Kind of Different as Me for Churches: www.samekindfoundation.org

    #30 How Struggle & Failure Builds a Leader & Grows a Brand (PLUS Vowels of Leadership)

    #30 How Struggle & Failure Builds a Leader & Grows a Brand (PLUS Vowels of Leadership)

    In this unique episode - Rainmaker podcaster Andrew Olsen, CFRE interviews Mark P. Fisher of Inspiring Growth.

    According to Andrew - Here are 6 key points we hit in this discussion:

    1. Mark's personal story of going 100+ miles per hour as a leader until he hit a wall...and it nearly killed him. He talks about how this experience helped him reset his priorities and focus, and create Inspiring Growth, his life's calling.

    2. The importance of caring for yourself as a leader in order to allow you to truly serve those you lead.

    3. The power of kindness, and how it helps you lead well.

    4. The importance of resilient thinking, and how that allows you to pick up the pieces and move on after failure or setbacks.

    5. As a leader, why you should strive to believe the best about people, and how that can radically change the culture in your organization.

    6. How to use a post mortem or after action review to overcome failure and create learning that will move your organization forward in a healthy way, even when a major project or initiative doesn't turn out the way you'd hoped.

Episode 30

Wow! Just wow! This particular episode really made me think about the qualities of good leadership in general that apply to ALL GOOD LEADERS of organizations, regardless of where you find yourself in life, non- profit or profit. Religious or non- religious organizations.
Knowing you personally, makes me sad to realize we moved away when we did Mark without being able to discuss so much more with you. . Would have loved to pick your brain and have had the opportunity to connect even more than we did.

Timing is everything. ❤️.

Vowels of Leadership

I was enjoying the show and then You had me at this point. What a great (and candid) concept. I highly recommend this podcast for those who want to have some provocative leadership concepts in a world of blah blah.

Global Reality ,

Ask great questions?

Yes...Mark is a master at asking great questions and he teaches others (and me) to ask great questions. This sounds easy but is difficult to practice. And this podcast focuses on business entrepreneurs who have had to reboot. Inspiring stories! And Amberlee is the voice of energy!! She is fun to listen to with her amped up enthusiasm!
