    #35 - How To Increase Your Value As A Leader

    One of the challenges of leadership is having to shift from a talented "doer" to an empowering leader. What got you to your current position is not necessarily what will help you continue to grow as a leader. In this podcast we talk about how to continue to grow and increase your value as a leader.

    When you've led at your church for long enough everything becomes "normal." The challenge is trying to see your church through the eyes of a first-time guest who is experiencing everything as new.

    #33 - The Dangers of Leading From the Middle w/ Micah Pelkey

    #33 - The Dangers of Leading From the Middle w/ Micah Pelkey

    Balancing the tension of being a leader everyone likes and at the same time being a leader everyone wants to follow is tricky. How vulnerable is too vulnerable? I sat down with Pastor Micah Pelkey to talk this tension and answer questions like... How friendly is too friendly? What should people call us? How close should people get? These are all questions leaders have to answer as they grown in their role and responsibilities.

Tjthescott ,

Great for “Excellent Not Pastors” too!

I’m not a pastor and I’m finding this podcast so valuable. I listen for input on how to treat staff and customers. If I can love my staff and customers like a pastor loves his staff and church members my organization will be a great place to work and buy products from. Good stuff Jason, keep it up!
