Phil Hodges: Should Leaders Apologize?

March 22, 2018

Phil Hodges is a co-founder of Lead Like Jesus and a co-author of Lead Like Jesus Revisited as well as five other books. Phil also has an extensive background in the marketplace through his involvement in Labor Union negotiations as well as years as an executive with Xerox and US Steel. 

In today's podcast Phil discusses the topic of an Effective Apology, how to say “I’m Sorry” so that it communicates that we truly own our mistakes. Phil talks about a difference between “Owning” our mistake versus “Explaining” what happened. When we default to explaining our actions rather than owning them, we ultimately divert from and distract from the actual issue.

How we apologize as leaders at home or work speaks volumes and has the potential to build trusting relationship or to destroy trust almost in an instant.   

Fess up when you mess up...

Own it... Don'r Explain It...

Josh Ross: How to Navigate Seasons of Darkness

February 7, 2018

How do you survive lengthy seasons of darkness? In January of 2014, Josh Ross traveled to Barrow, Alaska, to interact with a community that experiences over sixty-five days of darkness every winter. His time there revealed how essential the principles of reentry, roots, and rhythm are to our survival and health far beyond the Arctic Circle. Josh shares these insights in his newest book, "Reentry: How Pain, Roots, and Rhythm Guide Us from Darkness to Light."

As vital as the message of entry is to the Christian faith, many Christians are also desperate for a message of reentry after many seasons of doubt, confusion, bondage to the past, severed relationships, loss, depression, and stress. From places of darkness and shadows, God comes and reveals himself as the one who enters into our pain both as a companion who walks with us through our trials and as the one who is eager to eventually lead us into a healthier place.
