Together, we grow.

The Digital Toolbox | Part 3

Many of us operate under this assumption of “If we build it, they will come.” And I will surmise that a few will. Detail oriented projects, businesses or churches will attract a niche audience with good, even great, attention to detail, but it will never become the entity that it could be if the minute details are the only things getting attention.

The Online Executive Pastor

Nothing can replace having an Executive Pastor on staff and in the trenches, but what if you could get 40%-60% of what you need from an Executive Pastor at a fraction of what that might end up costing you? What if you could build the groundwork for the systems and processes you need to be able to sustain growth with your current staffing structure? What if you could explore ways of teaching yourself to fish rather than immediately hiring the fisherman?

The Digital Toolbox | Part 2

Most people find themselves in the “more time than money” camp. The same amount of time is available for every single person that has ever taken a breath on this planet. So why do some people seem to get more out of their time than others? Why are some able to accomplish in days or weeks what it might take other people years to get done?

The Digital Toolbox | Part 1

Don’t settle. There is statistical evidence that says that you will not change. Our brains are neurologically wired to repeat the familiar.

It’s typically coming from a place of fear and scarcity, and while that sentiment will allow for operations to continue relatively well, it is hard to thrive in such an environment. It seems as though the companies and people who are living out of external freedom don’t operate with a lens of fear, but of curiosity. They seem to find people, ideas and opportunities that pique their interest and then they proceed to have the guts to follow that curiosity. The way in which an organization or individual engages the opportunity of freedom is the way in which an organization or individual views itself/himself/herself.

Internal Renovation

The moment you recognize your internal reality, you will begin to see your way forward. The first step is coming to some sort of awareness of what is actually happening internally. Either for you, or for your organization. Once there is a sense of true north, you are ready to engage the process of finding out what you or your organization deeply desire and who you truly are.

16 Years and 13 Questions

Several years ago, I noticed roughly 13 common denominators after successful or fulfilling experiences in communicating. More recently, these 13 commonalities have become questions that I’ve used with others when helping them develop or assess their onstage communication skills. If you could add a “14th” commonality or question, what would it be?
