There’s a one-of-a-kind association for Christian leaders that can help you make better decisions, avoid costly mistakes, and create a solid plan for business growth. The chief executive of this organization is with me today, and over the next few minutes, I believe his message could take your culture to the next level.     

The person I'm talking about is a leader I've come to know and admire. He's Mike Sharrow, President, and CEO of C12 GroupMike, welcome to the Flourishing Culture Podcast.

As a leader how do you respond to the feedback you received that isn't what you want to hear? Listen in as today's guest inspires us to receive regular, anonymous feedback from staff and to act on it. He believes it will have an eternal consequence for every Christian leader.

What if you could belong to a church “with a heart for those outside the church. A place where anyone can come and connect with God without the risk of being judged. A church that’s rich with ethnic diversity, and a place where kids love to come back each week.” I want you to meet the senior pastor of just such a church. Once you hear his story, you’ll want to hear more—especially when it comes to the leadership and staff who make the church’s ministry possible. 

My guest is Dr. Chris Stephens, Senior Pastor of Faith Promise Church in Knoxville, Tennessee. Chris, your life changed forever as you laid in a hospital bed when you were 22. Tell us about that life-defining story.

You'll find today's guest has a fascinating story of how he inherited a very unhealthy culture at a Christian college and turned it into a flourishing one. Listen in to how he did it.

We all know that tremendous employee engagement equates to a tremendously flourishing workplace culture. A lot of leaders would be glad if 60% of their people felt engaged in their work. My guest today leads an organization where 79% of the employees—nearly 80%--feel engaged. How do they do it? What’s been their secret? We’re about to find out.  

I want to welcome my return guest, Mark Maxwell, President of Prairie College in Three Hills, Alberta Canada. Mark, welcome back to the Flourishing Culture Podcast.

Would you like to be led more by Jesus, live and lead more like Jesus, and lead more to Jesus? Today's podcast is just for you.

Sometimes in life, we can lose our wonder.  It can happen gradually or overnight.  In talking with many Christian leaders struggling through the past year, I hear about a lot of people being exhausted, tired, thinking about retiring early, even quitting. Some have described it as ‘the dark night of the soul’ where there has been an absence of the presence of God in our lives.   

In the next few minutes, I want to give you a new kind of pathway so you can live more like Jesus—and perhaps renew the sense of His presence, especially in your work. And I’ve just the person to take us on this adventure. 

Dr. Steve Brown, President of Arrow Leadership and author of a very timely, engaging book titledJesus Centered: Focusing on Jesus in a Distracted WorldSteve, welcome to the Flourishing Culture Podcast.

What is the benefit of having a flourishing workplace culture? Yes, things run more smoothly, there is often lower turnover, people are treated more respectfully, employees are more engaged, and productivity is higher. But on today's show, one more benefit comes out. When organizations have flourishing workplace cultures leaders love coming to work. They come with more energy and enthusiasm. Listen in to learn how!

I know leaders who are willing to go on record and say, "Your workplace culture is as necessary as air. Workplace culture, they'd say, 'is the very air your organization needs to live and breathe, to survive and thrive.'" My guest believes this 150%. Wait until you hear the reason why!

Leadership blindspots are the specific areas where a leader, even a very successful leader, is missing something. A blind spot can be a lack of attention to a certain area or part of your skillset that really has never been developed. And of course, you don't know what your blind spots are. But, we know how to find them. Listen in, as we talk with a leader about tools that helped him and his team grow to be even more effective in their leadership.

Welcome to the Flourishing Culture Podcast. I’m Cary Humphries, Senior Consultant with the Best Christian Workplaces Institute, and for this episode, I’m sitting in for Al Lopus as your guest host.

I want you to see the real advantage and benefit of the 360.

Today, our show highlights and organization that has been on the road to Flourishing. They have worked for several years now on their workplace culture and have moved to the level we call Flourishing. Yes, listen in as Robert Bortins, Jr. gives practical tips on improving Healthy Communication, Sustainable Strategy, and Life-Long Learning; all while building trust, unity, and commitment among his team.

I want to begin our visit with a question you might already be asking: How can our organization help ensure the trust, unity, and effectiveness of our people during these uncertain times?  

I know we all have some thoughts about the answer to this question, but today, we're about to hear a powerful story of how one organization offers you a road map that turns the toughest challenges into success. 

The man behind this amazing story is Robert Bortins, Jr., CEO of  Classical Conversations in Southern Pines, North Carolina. Robert, welcome to the Flourishing Culture Podcast.

Who are the Certified Best Christian Workplaces in 2020? Well today, we highlight just a few of the 157 organizations we are honoring this week. We invite you to join us on today's show, as we discuss some of the practices these organizations do to set the standard as the best, most-effective places to work in the world.

Welcome to the Flourishing Culture Podcast. Today, I want us to focus on just one question: During this past year, how did some Christian organizations, churches, and Christian-led companies actually create the best, most effective workplaces while facing a grave pandemic and economic uncertainty?  

Well today, I have the great pleasure of introducing the list of the 2020 Certified Best Christian workplaces. We publish this list each year to highlight organizations that are living our vision. We believe that Christian-led organizations set the standard as the best, most effective workplaces to work on in the world.  And to help describe a couple of key organizations that are on our list. I am joined today by BCWI senior leaders: Cary Humphries, Regional Director, and Giselle Jenkins, Culture Consulting Director for BCWI. I've also asked Jay Bransford, our President and Chief Operating Officer to help facilitate the discussion. 

Thank you, all, for joining me on the Flourishing Culture Podcast.
