A Leader is not Necessarily a Commander

I first of all want to thank the awesome group at Mile Two Discipleship School for welcoming me into their circle last! It was a pleasure to help in the area of self awareness and learning to lead from your own unique place in life. This involves the Myers-Briggs type material, but definitely goes beyond … Continue reading A Leader is not Necessarily a Commander

Great Learning and Growing Experiences!

Today marks 2 years since I ventured out with Lead Freely. Just over 2 years ago I finished my certification to be a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) practitioner. It marked the beginning of new things...I hoped. 2016 was a rough year to say the least. I finished my days at a local church in an … Continue reading Great Learning and Growing Experiences!

Are you making waves?

Have you ever considered radio waves in your home? I am not trying to worry you, but they are everywhere. And they are not alone.

Cracked Pots #WorldMentalHealthDay

As this day comes to a close I am reminded of my present state of sanity. I am also reminded several times through life experience and through my knowledge of the Bible just how fragile we are as humans. We are created 'good', are amazing and intricate in design, have been blessed with amazing resiliency … Continue reading Cracked Pots #WorldMentalHealthDay

How do you reach an agreement?

Conflict is a natural part of the human condition. What we do with it sometimes requires something beyond ourselves. The problem with how we approach conflict is that too often it is dressed in negative thought. When we only see conflict as an unnatural part of our existence, and one which only occurs in an … Continue reading How do you reach an agreement?

Change Your Work Culture

What is your culture of leadership? What does it look like to be on your team? One of the traps I found myself in as a leader was that of managing over motivating. It is easier than we might imagine to create an unhealthy work environment based on our drive to fulfil what we believe … Continue reading Change Your Work Culture

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

Decisions, decisions, decisions…how many have you made already this week? I had to get a new smartphone a few days ago, and it got me thinking about all the decisions we make. Even a decision like that one can get you stuck if you are not careful. If someone would follow us around and track … Continue reading Decisions, Decisions, Decisions

Is your life in check(list)?

Another great installment of one of my favourite podcasts for you to listen to: Hidden Brain - You 2.0 "Check Yourself" Are you into making checklists? You can chalk this up partially to personality, partially to preference, and partially to learned habit. Depending on your job, you may have to be a checklist person, even … Continue reading Is your life in check(list)?

What do you have planned for the next year? I may not have the whole year planned out, but I do know where a big chunk of it will be invested. I am going to be working with Church of the Way, here in Winnipeg, for the better part of the academic year. My role … Continue reading The Next Opportunity!

Getting a handle on conflict

This post comes out of a number of conversations I have witnessed recently. Conflict seems to be a natural or even default state of being in much public discourse. As a generalization, we just do not handle it well. (As strange as this may be for a last week of summer blog, I think it … Continue reading Getting a handle on conflict
