Today's special guest is none other than the new president and Chief Operating Officer of the Best Christian Workplaces Institute. Enjoy Al's conversation with Jay Bransford.

To everyone who's listening, you've got a front-row seat to a very special conversation. On Tuesday, November 3rd, we at BCWI, made a historic announcement that Jay Bransford has been named the new President and Chief Operating Officer of the Best Christian Workplaces Institute. With more than 20 years of leadership in respected Christian organizations and for-profit companies, Jay was the top choice of an international search that involved 600 candidates. wondered what the best way would be to tell you about Jay's stellar credentials, character, and deep commitment to Jesus Christ. The best way is to have you meet and get to know him yourself. I’m delighted and grateful to welcome the new President and Chief Operating Officer of the Best Christian Workplaces InstituteJay Bransford

Every leader leaves a wake behind them. Whether the wake is positive or negative depends on their integrity. Today's episode is for Christian leaders who hope to live and finish strong. What are the secrets that are creating an integrity gap in your life, today? To learn about the common pitfalls and anecdotes that will help you flourish, stay tuned!

If you’re a leader, or if you work alongside a leader, or you aspire to be a leader, get ready. We’re going to talk about one of the biggest trouble spots leaders face. Something we’ve never talked about here on the podcast. Here’s the trouble spot: 

Leaders who preach one set of values yet live by another are not just harming themselves. A leader’s lack of integrity may generate immense internal guilt and shame, but it also limits the effectiveness of any organization he or she leads.  

Jeff and Terra Mattson are the married co-founders of Living Wholehearted and the Courageous Girls Movement. They coach leaders in a variety of settings, from corporate offices to leadership retreats and individual counseling. Their professional experience and research have formed their unique perspective on the relationship between leadership and integrity.  

Their new book is called Shrinking the Integrity Gap: Between What Leaders Preach and Live. Jeff & Terra know this issue inside and out—and they’ve got some insightful, practical answers you can use. Jeff & Terra, welcome to the Flourishing Culture Podcast.

What are four ways you can improve diverse relationships in your organization? Today's guest brings insights from her life and her book called The Colors of Culture.

What if you could look at racism, racial righteousness, and personal identity in a way that didn't threaten you but rather moved you inside to truly love others from the perspective of us having “one blood,” because we’re all made in the image of Jesus.   

 My guest today is going to show you how and why this tremendous, radical truth speaks to where you live and work and walk with God.   

 It gives me great pleasure to welcome in Dr. MelindaJoy Mingo, author of a timely and significant new book from Intervarsity Press titled, The Colors of Culture: The Beauty of Diverse FriendshipMelindaJoy, welcome to the Flourishing Culture Podcast.
