As you slow down to savor this Thanksgiving holiday, take some time to reflect on the heart of your leadership. Enjoy this listener favorite from our archives, as Ruth Haley Barton teaches spiritual disciplines to keep our leadership centered on Christ.
How does a busy Christian leader – with a full plate of responsibilities and activities – maintain an abundant spiritual life so they can effectively lead from that place?
Today, Al is talking with Dr. Ruth Haley Barton, the founder of the Transforming Center located in Wheaton, IL. Ruth is a seasoned spiritual director, teacher, retreat leader and author of several spiritual formation books and resources.
Tune in to this illuminating, important and deeply rich conversation, as Al and Ruth discuss the dangers of living out of our false, untransformed selves, and how to cultivate spiritual rhythms to draw us into the presence of God.

Our conversation today will center around the question: What does a leader do to build high levels of trust in their organization? As we'll learn, it has a lot to do with making regular trust deposits into your culture through transparency, consistency and integrity.
It is our distinct privilege to talk with Bill Robinson, one of our early champions of organizational culture in Christian workplaces. Bill is perhaps best known for his role as president of Whitworth University for 17 years, retiring in 2010. For more than 10 years, Whitworth held the record for the highest scores on the BCWI Employee Engagement Survey in Christian higher education.
Since his retirement, Bill continues to play significant roles in Christian leadership positions. He serves as Chairman of the Princeton Theological Seminary Board, and for a year, he played a key role as interim President of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities.
