Well folks, I just signed a contract extension with the church I had been leading through transition. I wasn't planning on it at the beginning, but I think God had a different plan. It is not forever, as it is an interim role, but it we both felt we needed it. I get to continue … Continue reading New contract and knowing how long to stay
Thank you Pauingassi FN! I appreciate your hospitality, your welcome to me every time, and your willingness to try new things as we learn and grow together. So many good people to thank! Once again I did not offer my workshop the way I thought I would be. Instead, the invitation was put out to … Continue reading Learning with Pauingassi
Are you familiar with that term? I am thankful for groups like Pioneer Camp Manitoba, who have made me part of their custom. Being a part of various conversations with their staff allows me to speak into their ministry personally. I care about them and their work, because the relationship grows deeper every time we … Continue reading Thank you for your custom!
I love taking assessments! I am also a skeptical person, so maybe I am just trying to find one that is wrong or I enjoy the surprise at the end. Here's a great little assessment I found from Harvard Business Review, which aligns very well with the fourth 'letter' of your Myers-Briggs type. I am … Continue reading Are you productive?
Sorry folks. It turns out my research was wrong. The grant I was offering was/is available, but not to non-profit organizations. And guess who I do most of my work with... Non-profits! So, I'm sending this out again, with a few corrections. Hopefully we can still work together... I blogged this last year around this … Continue reading Can you afford good training? I think so…
You may have noticed this title before. It's the name of the workshop I facilitated in 2 communities this past month. And I think it's pretty awesome, but I may be biased. As the tagline suggests, it's all about helping people develop healthy relationships within their families. I would extend that to all levels of … Continue reading Living Better Together!
The workshop may have been small, but the sharing was deep! I had yet another opportunity to share my living better together workshop, discussing communication and relationship-building within families and communities. We had a little trouble getting word out, but once the right people were on the case everything moved nicely! Many thanks to those … Continue reading Thank you Little Grand!
Thank you Pauingassi! This week I had the opportunity of spending a few days here sharing my workshop, 'Living Better Together'. It's all about knowing yourself, better communication, and establishing boundaries through values. There were great conversations and many laughs, and I appreciate our time together! These are important topics to discuss as we build … Continue reading Thank you Pauingassi!
Another great workshop with the Trinity Western University women's basketball team is in the books! To think, our time was nearly cut in half due to a delayed flight. But isn't that often how the best laid plans usually go? We have the perfect formula set in motion, and then all the variables of life … Continue reading Thank you Spartans!
“So why did you choose the MBTI?” (This was originally posted as part of a 'Thank You' post earlier this year.) That is a question I get from time to time when I talk shop with people about personality and social interaction. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator occasionally has its detractors online. I recently listened to … Continue reading So why did you choose the MBTI?
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
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!
