Replacing the Lies That Cripple Us: A Life Story

Replacing the foundational lies that shape our perceptions and actions is key to becoming a transformational leader. Early in life, in response to loss, I adopted lies about who I was, who God was, and how to survive in a hard world. These lies limited my ability to live the life God designed for me. Ultimately, God replaced those lies with his truth, showing me the necessary but inadequate role of the will, the cost of emotional and relational ignorance, and the value of faith in resolving real world problems. These life-changing truths are essential to living into God’s call for Christian leaders.

 

Secrets of Transformational Change Agents

God and objective truth are indispensable in solving real-world problems in business, law, NGOs, academia, family, and individual lives. From this foundation, we will unpack secrets for transformational change agents and discover that developing trust in personal and professional relationships enables change that would otherwise be impossible. In this workshop you will learn how to listen with your heart as well as your head in order to change the game; identify hidden interests and asymmetric exchanges that enable unexpected solutions; ask the right questions so that the answers really matter; and facilitate win-win outcomes.

Three Truths That Empower Change Agents: Unlocking the Secrets to Transformational Leadership

Replacing the foundational lies that shape our perceptions and actions is key to becoming a transformational leader. Early in life, I adopted fundamental lies that limited my ability to live the life God designed for me. Ultimately, God replaced those lies with his truth, showing me the necessary but inadequate role of the will, the cost of emotional and relational ignorance, and the value of faith in resolving real world problems. These transformational truths unlocked secrets to becoming an effective change agent. In this seminar, we will discuss the impact of these secrets as we draw lessons from the Golden Rule Case Study about how God and objective truth have an indispensable role in business, law, universities and the personal lives and families of leaders who shape the world. We will unpack how to develop trust in personal and professional relationships, identify hidden interests and asymmetric exchanges, ask the right questions, and facilitate win-win outcomes.
