How to lead and influence by following the greatest leadership role model of all time, Jesus. Practical and insightful interviews with experts and thought leaders.
Lead Like Jesus: The Heart of Leadership
A changed heart means a changed leader. You are a leader who truly wants to lead like Jesus, the greatest leadership role model of all time—but you don’t. Why? Paul had the same problem. He articulated his frustration perfectly in Romans 7:15: “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do.” Does this sound familiar to you? What is in the heart determines why we do what we do; our hearts are the source of our motivations. What motivates you to lead others? Is your leadership about you? We continue to see that the most persistent barrier to leading like Jesus is a heart motivated by self-interest.
Lead Like Jesus: Feedback Part 2
Accurate Self Awareness is critical in the way we seek out, receive, and apply feedback. It begins with two critical questions: Whose Are You? and Who Are You? These questions ultimately point to our Identity. Self-awareness is simply a conscious knowledge of one’s own character, feelings, motives and desires. Accurate self-awareness has the potential to propel us to new heights, safeguard from unnecessary blunders and strengthen relationships. If ignored, misguided or rejected, it can derail even the best, most skilled and prepared leaders.
Interview with Oleg Vasilevsky from Ukraine
Oleg Vasilevsky and his wife Lena have been a part of our global Lead Like Jesus family for over 5 years. They are from Ukraine, and today they are on the frontlines helping to feed thousands of war victims. "Food is the number one priority. Russians have destroyed bridges and roads and it’s getting harder and harder to buy food. People are beginning to starve in some areas. At the same time there is a need for basic essentials. We are getting dozens of calls a day but have nothing to give. Churches who we partner with provide weekly care to 11,000 refugees as well as distribute food locally." - Oleg You can learn more about Oleg and his team's work, and how to help financially here: https://www.spiritofvictory.org
Lead Like Jesus: Candid Feedback Part 1
One indication of the new heart is an honest desire for candid feedback. The desire to serve better welcomes accurate feedback even when it is unflattering. Self-serving leaders, however, prefer flattery to truth — fearing that they risk losing their image, their position, and their power. That is their worst nightmare. How are you doing with feedback?
Lead Like Jesus: Grace and Redemption
Leading like Jesus does not exist without grace, forgiveness and redemption. In today's episode Rich and Freddie discuss the importance of extending grace to others, the importance of forgiving ourselves, and the beauty of redemption that Jesus offers to all who come humbly to Him!
Lead Like Jesus: Technology and Family
Technology is neither good nor bad. It’s a tool. How we use it is the key. Technology, if abused, can lead to anxiety, separation, depression, sin, comparison and distortion. In today's episode we'll focus on leading your family through wise use of technology in your home.
Great wisdom and practical insight for leading like Jesus. Helps
To explain what it looks like to lead with a Servant heart!
Grateful to listen to Part 1 of Healthy vs Unhealthy Heart. Leaves me thinking of our hearts as an additional sense, (in addition to our 5 physical senses) — let’s get entrepreneurial with our hearts. Thank you, Phyllis and Karin:-)
Wow! I love the advice and truth in this podcast. Great interviews, advice, and perspectives. Between this podcast and Andy Stanley's leadership podcast I have not only received tools to grow my relationship with my employees, friends and my family but most importantly I have received the gift of how vital it is to have Jesus front and center in every aspect of my life. I am so excited for and look forward to everything I soak in from theses teachers! Thank you all so very much!
