Leaders That Work In Their God-Given Strengths Are High Impact
“I really believe God intended work to be a part of a thriving life. A life in which we flourish and experience well-being. It’s so important that we work. It’s just meaningful. But like anything else we can overdo it, we can do it in some misguided ways and what God intended as a good becomes a harmful aspect of life.” – Chad Hall
Chad Hall felt called to the ministry at the young age of 19 years old. He started off as an associate pastor, became a pastor, and later became a staff member in the Baptist denomination. It was here that he stumbled upon the career of Christian coaching and drawing out other people’s expertise.
On this episode, Chad will discuss strategies on how to be an effective coach. God is not only working in the church, but He is working in the business community and other non-profits. Being a ministry leader often does and should extend behind the church doors into our professional lives. Our outreach is through our “water cooler” conversations, our attitudes in team meetings, and the way we care for our co-workers.
What you will learn:
- The difference between coaching, training and consulting
- That one of the most important leadership skills is the ability to say “no”
- The core issues that challenge the ability to say “no”
- How to balance your own confidence without edging God out
- The importance of being a humble leader
- How to look at your life like a story. What chapter are you in?
“Sometimes we think that work can only be important if I can share Christ and get someone saved. And that’s great. I mean, certainly love to see that, workplace evangelism. But I think we also need to be equipped with a vision for how our work really connects to what God’s doing in the world.” – Chad Hall
