Influence: Want to Influence Others? Try Modeling Integrity.

April 28, 2013

You have been tempted, as have I, to gain influence by compromising something about yourself: little bits of advantage in situations, truth and relationships that you can exploit and leverage. Jesus talked about "gaining the world and losing yourself." Maybe he knew something. Maybe there is something to be said for not compromising yourself for easy gain, but focusing yourself for lasting impact. Author, consultant and Jacob's Well-er, Nick Tasler, will join me in talking about integrity and the influence it has when we model it for others. See you Sunday. ~Greg

Influence: Want to Influence Others? Try Encouraging Them.

April 24, 2013

Think you could do something extraordinary? Something most people doubt you could do? Well, you can. We'd see you through it until you did it. Influence isn't about what we do to others, it's what we do for others, and one of the most powerful things we can do is encourage. Brad Hofbauer from Team World Vision takes people who have no idea what they are capable of and helps them accomplish more than they ever imagined. He'll be joining me Sunday and you won't believe what is going to happen when we dissect this creature 'encouragement.' See you. ~Greg

Influence: Want to Influence Others? Try Serving Them.

April 14, 2013

You influence others by your actions, and by your inaction. You may "dress to impress", try to have more things or speak louder to try to influence others. But when you think about it, some of your greatest influence comes through the humble act of serving not impressing people. Influencing by Impressing actually distances you from others, and when you are far away, it's hard to influence.  Serving gets you up close and personal. And up close and personal is where stuff really starts to happen. Sound counter-intuitive and maybe a little uncomfortable? Let's talk about it.

Influence: You have it, what are you going to do with it?

April 7, 2013

The video shown near the end of the message has been edited out of the podcast.

One of the things we all have to own up to is that fact that we are capable of, and indeed have great influence. Whether or not we have some isn't the question. The question you need to ask yourself is, 'what am I doing with it?' It's personal. It's you and your life and your part in shaping your relationships, your environment, the world. Yeah, it's a big responsibility. But don't panic, it isn't your job alone, and you aren't expected to get it all right. If you think God, faith and that sort of stuff is important, then this is essential. Let's talk.
