Phyllis Hennecy Hendry: Questions Leaders Must Ask - Who Am I?

February 15, 2017

Phyllis Hennecy Hendry, President and CEO of Lead Like Jesus, talks about critical questions every leader must answer in order to influence those around them. Answers to those critical questions determine how leaders interact with others, and how they respond to external pressures they constantly face. 

In today's podcast Phyllis tackles the question of: Who Am I?

The question of: Who Am I defines our identity and our life purpose. When leaders understand who they are and who Jesus says they are, they begin to lead and influence out of that place of undrstanding. So what does Jesus say about our identity in Him? He tells us:

- We are forgiven

- We are chosen

- We are loved 

- We are heirs with Jesus

So how will knowing who you are in Jesus influence and change the way you lead at home, work, and every other place you're planted?
