    S2 Episode 10: Overcoming Adversity with Dave Arthur

    S2 Episode 10: Overcoming Adversity with Dave Arthur

    Overcoming adversity is a part of every human being’s life - whether we bring this adversity on ourselves, or whether it is unfairly cast upon us. The question is not if we have to deal with challenges (big or small), but when. In the words of Hellen Keller, “Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”

    How do we stand against such difficult times? On today’s episode, Dennis interviews Dave Arthur Strauch about how he overcame personal adversity. May his story encourage you and those you love.

    Dave Arthur has been working in radio for over 35 year including Top 40 radio stations like KISS-FM, KF95, and Magic 93.1 in Boise, Idaho. In 2001, Dave joined Salem Communications in Portland, OR on the original team at 104.1 The Fish where he worked for 11 years. In Fall 2010 Dave was asked to take over as morning show host at 89.5 KTSY back home in Boise, where he currently lives and works. Dave is a self-described car nut who loves his wife Shauna, daughters, and Mazda Miata. Find out more and listen to Dave online at KTSY.org.

    What does it take to start a successful recording studio? In this episode, Dennis interviews Michael Seals to find out.

    As a business coach, Dennis helps leaders everyday by asking questions, sharing inspiration, and offering resources. In today's episode, Dennis draws on his years of experience as a coach, providing resources to help you as a leader. By the numbers: one key behavior, two key books, three key films, and four key words.


    Key behavior: rest. Life and leadership is stressful, and for many of us it can be challenging to leave work at the office. Dennis shares how he has benefited from an annual vacation (away from phones and computers), as well as a weekly rest on Sunday to mentally unwind for the week ahead.
    Key books. Dennis always keeps two books nearby: the Bible, and one other book. The 'second book' has carried many covers throughout his life, and so Dennis shares his Dirty Dozen that have had the most profound impact on him:
    1. Victory over the Darkness by Neil Anderson (Amazon)
    2. Wild at Heart by John Eldredge (Amazon)
    3. Love is the Killer App by Tim Sanders (Amazon)
    4. Lee: The Last Years by Charles Bracelen Flood (Amazon)
    5. The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene (Amazon)
    6. All the Great Prizes by John Taliaferro (Amazon)
    7. On Writing by Stephen King (Amazon)
    8. Heaven by Randy Alcorn (Amazon)
    9. JFK: The Smoking Gun by Colin McLaren (Amazon)
    10. Surprised by Joy by C.S. Lewis (Amazon)
    11. The Personal Memoirs by Ulysses S. Grant (Amazon)
    12. Boots & Saddles by Elizabeth Bacon Custer (Amazon)

    Key films.
    1. The Godfather (Amazon)
    2. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (Amazon)
    3. Being There (Amazon)

    Key words: will you forgive me?
    Turning a one sided statement of apology into a conversation of forgiveness has profoundly impacted Dennis life and relationships with others.

    S2 Episode 5: Racial Realities in the Workplace - How to Create an Environment of Listening ft. Brian Yeager

    This episode features special guest Brian Yeager, President of Barefoot Media Ministries. Brian and Dennis discuss the topic of race in the workplace, providing leaders with tools and thoughtful tips on how to create an environment of listening. Brian pulls from his personal life, sharing how his biracial wife and children have given him a new lens through which to view white privilege, racial reconciliation, and blindspots white people often have regarding people of color.

    How can you facilitate listening and openness regarding race in the workplace? Brian recommends creating feedback loops, methods of conversation, and moments where your team can sit and talk. Deeply entrenched core values in your company, like respect and care for others, help make workplaces inviting and welcoming for everyone.

    Brian Yeager oversees FM radio stations in five different communities as the President of Barefoot Media Ministries, including 89.5 FM KTSY in the Treasure Valley. He is a leader in national media industry, as well as a community leader. Find out more about his work and team at BareFootmm.org.
