    Welcome to Episode 97 of the Red Ink Revival Leadership Podcast. In today’s episode Patrick is continuing with one of the most important factors for successful leaders, self-differentiation. The past 5 episodes have focused on these concepts, starting with episode 92 (The Leader’s Kryptonite: Emotional Fusion Versus Differentiation) giving the context for the series.

    * How anxiety drives the good, the bad, and the ugly in every relationship and system.
    * A Biblical perspective of anxiety as a driver of both functional and dysfunctional behavior.
    * Review of self-differentiation and giving context to leadership challenges.
    * How to stay steady after you stand up and how to hold onto who you really are, even with intense reactivity from the group or system.
    * How holding onto yourself involves four basic activities.
    * The importance of prioritizing growth over perfection and flawlessness.
    * The power of loving yourself with radical acceptance, even though others are judging you.
    * How to avoid a conflict of wills through vulnerability of showing up, without needing to change anyone else.
    * Using breathing and physical techniques to calm the nervous system.
    * Practicing reframing painful moments through awareness and story exercises.
    * Zooming out and externalizing to be able to give reactive relationships the compassion you desire.
    * The purpose and power of boundaries, giving consequences to be your best self, not to control others.
    * Learning to evaluate past painful moments by engaging a crash site analysis.
    * The practice of healthy, appropriate grieving when losses happen, to prepare our hearts for the next time we encounter intense reactivity.

    Patrick Norris – Differentiation: The ART of Self-Definition and Identity through Truth

    Patrick Norris – Differentiation: The ART of Self-Definition and Identity through Truth

    Welcome to Episode 95 of the Red Ink Revival Leadership Podcast. In today’s episode Patrick is continuing with one of the most important factors for successful leaders, self-differentiation. The past 3 episodes have focused on these concepts, starting with episode 92 (The Leader’s Kryptonite: Emotional Fusion Versus Differentiation) giving the context for the series. If you have wondered why you can’t seem to get the ‘wins’ you work so hard for, even after training with conferences, consultants, books, podcasts, and mentors, this episode series is for you!
     
    Episode 95 takes us into the following:
     
    * Review of self-differentiation and giving context to leadership challenges.
    * Continued exploration of the 3 components to mature in self-definition or identity: A-R-T.
    * Review of awareness and responsibility (AR of ART) as the first two components of self-definition or identity.
    * Revealing the third component of self-definition or identity: truth.
    * How truth is about honoring your own values, perspectives, opinions, convictions, interpretations, beliefs, desires, and goals.
    * How identity is the ability to know and commit to what you believe is true, not being closed to opposing ideas, or being inflexible.
    * How identity is about the right to define yourself, define your own thoughts and beliefs, and to clarify what it means to be yourself.
    * How identity empowers you to know what you think is important, what is valuable, and what you believe to be moral and true.
    * How you come to know what is true: objectivity versus subjectivity.
    * Exploration of free moral agency as God’s gift to choose what you believe is true.
    * How emotions and feelings are beneficial gifts to serve your awareness, but how they are unreliable sources to anchor you in truth.
    * The benefit of Scripture as an authoritative source for truth.
    * How Biblical identity is not your unwilling acceptance of God’s forced enmeshment, but your willing acceptance in pursuit of truth.
    * Biblical texts to reinforce ideas and benefits of truth around emotional states.
    * Exercises to build your truth-muscles and instincts.
