We guide you from where you are, to where you want to be.
118: The Quest Of Calling
Changing with the times is an essential component for anyone seeking a fresh expression of their calling in the world. Before Nokia was ever a mobile phone empire it was first a pulp manufacturer and at one point in their story even tried their luck at footwear. Join us today as we explore the hidden connection behind a calling and the creativity needed to adapt under the tectonic shifts of today’s world.
117: The Quest For Purpose
When asked to describe yourself, you may not struggle to find words that illustrate either your reflection in the mirror, or your personality. However, defining our individual purpose is a difficult challenge for most. While you may not feel you have the words to articulate why you exist, your purpose is not hidden on another continent. Your purpose is deep within you, ready to be lived out each day — in every relationship and applied to life’s greatest challenges.
116: The Quest of Identity
For many of us, we base our identity on the things we do, how well we perform, and what we achieve. Although the things we do are certainly important, identity is more than doing something; identity exists before we do anything.
Join us today as we explore our understanding of identity and how it will transform the way you do everything.
115: Every Story Is A Quest
A quest is a noble pursuit of truth and purpose. To search for something that was lost or taken, often in the face of great danger and risk. Great quest-ions do the same; the search us and pursue us, to find truth and things that are hidden.
Every story is a quest. It's a journey of great struggle, challenge, opportunity, and impact. Think of the story of your life; it's been a quest, and continues. What are you on the quest for? What are you seeking and searching for?
On the Paterson Podcast, we're exploring the quest and the questions we are facing today.
114: Buried Treasure: The Paterson Purpose Project
The greatest wasted resource in the world is human talent. It's a treasure that is buried all around us -- in our schools, businesses, churches, and families. Imagine a world where millions more people are awakened to their unique, creative purpose, unleashed to use their heart and talents in remarkable ways. How would that reality change your family, your company, and your community?
Through the Paterson Purpose Project, we're partnering with businesses, churches, and nonprofits, to launch and inspire a global movement of identity, purpose, and impact. Over the last 40 years, we've been able to help 10,000s of people and teams, but we believe the call of this moment is to help millions more.
There's buried treasure everywhere. Let’s go find it, together.

Listen in as we share practical tips for those who wrestling with life’s challenges and an invitation to integrate conflict in a way that brings life and love to the world around us.
Having gone through two Paterson faciliated StratOps I have been devouring this podcast picking up wisdom, insight, and perspective on the process. This show interviews leaders across a broad spectrum of businesses and ministries so their is a width and breadth of challlenges faced and various way the Paterson StraOp process has been helpful. I especially enjoy the "quick fire" question at the end of each episode. If strategy and leadership is important to you, then this podcast is a must listen. @RobJacobs_
The steps for real transformation.
I first heard about Tom Patterson from a friend and quickly picked up the book Living The Life You Were Meant To Live and immediately felt encouraged. I couple of years later I had a Life Plan done for me and was amazed by the results. This podcast has me digging in deep yet again.
