Are you interested in improving the relationships on your team and across your organization? I believe our topic today has the potential to radically improve the relationships among the employees in your team and organization.

Having just heard of this recently, we had to include this innovative idea in a podcast for our listeners. What is it?

Paul writes in Romans 12:10 to be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Thus, the basis for our discussion today… the honor chair.

Today's podcast is something completely different. Normally, I'm the one asking the questions. In the next few minutes, the questions will be coming straight at me!  

Playing the role of host, today, is Mark Cutshall. As professional writer and creative consultant is a member of the team at the Best Christian Workplaces Institute. He's a long-time friend and I have a good idea of what he has up his sleeve, today.  Welcome, Mark, and lead us on. 

Back in August, I took a little journey, the journey of a life-time, a journey that lasted 35 days in which I actually walked 500 miles across the northern tier of Spain. This spiritual pilgrimage has affected me as a follower of Jesus, and has impacted my work as president of BCWI.

If you’re a CEO or other senior leader who answers to a board of directors, OR if you chair a board, OR if serve on a board of a Christian organization (pause) and if you want your board to be more effective to further and fulfill the unique work to which God has called your organization, church or business, then these next few minutes are just for you. And even if you’re not directly involved with a board, you’re in for a treat.

We have the pleasure of visiting with two longtime friends and incredible Christian leaders. They’re going to share with you some of their very best wisdom, experience, and stories from their new forth-coming book: Lessons From the Nonprofit Boardroom.

Prolific writer of eight books. Named by Nonprofit Times as one of the “50 Most Powerful Nonprofit Leaders” from 2010-2015. And with Dan . . .

It always gives us great joy when we see a Christian organization make a significant improvement in their culture and reach the flourishing level. Today, you’re going to hear an inspiring story that will give you some powerful, practical approaches you can use to improve the health of your culture.

We have the pleasure of visiting with Sam Barfell, Superintendent of Southside Christian School in Simpsonville, South Carolina. Southside Christian school includes Pre-K to 12th grade. Southside Christian School’s purpose is to "partner with Christian parents to provide an excellent education consistent with biblical truth.”
