This presentation is based on my book, "Leadership From the Sidelines: Much of What I Learned About Leadership, I Learned as a Mascot." Suited for a corporate environment where leaders want to come at leadership from another angle, not the standard boring eight principles of leadership.
Mascots are fun. They're there to entertain. So this talk is really an enjoyable way to impart leadership principles to your organization.
Duration: 30 minutes, or 60 minutes
Inspired by my reaction to "Halftime," a book by Bob Buford. This topic is about discovering the skills we have and applying them to the things we enjoy. Maybe we've been paid for these skills as a job. Maybe we've taught others. How can those skills be used to do something more than garner a paycheck? How can they be used to help people? How can they be used to change the world?
Duration: 50 minutes
Audience: This talk has been given in churches as well as in university settings.
This presentation came out of my association with pastors. I've had some great pastors in my life as well as opportunities to interact with many pastors in group settings. I noticed that when pastors get together they sound a lot like a group of my business friends. They talk about their churches and their ministries with the same level of passion I had for business.
Toolkit for Pastors comprises several business concepts having impact on pastors:
—The basics of business
Each section of the talk includes a business principle and a Biblical principle. Exercises are included to help develop and reinforce these principles.
Duration: Ranges from 30 to 60 minutes as a presentation. Given as a workshop, the Toolkit for Pastors will fill an entire day, with over six hours of content, plus breaks.
This is for those of us who are active church members. If you’re a member of an evangelical church, you don’t need to be told the reason why you should “go” and do evangelism, but you might need some help on how to get that done.
Tools for Evangelism is a practical guide on how to present the gospel. It’s not only how to
present the gospel through the way it has impacted your life (i.e., giving your testimony), but
also how to use tracts, pamphlets, and the Bible itself to talk someone through a gospel
Duration: 30-60 minutes
Audience: Primarily pastors and others in church leadership. It can also be presented in a church service as a sermon.
We do not need to hear another speaker on “should we do discipleship.” Our method uses a discussion-based discipleship strategy to help “do” discipleship. We bring a fresh idea on how to help people grow in their knowledge of Christ. The goal of the talk is to help people become disciples that make disciples.
This topic is about establishing credibility with stakeholders. I know from my own experience that it can be difficult to establish credibility with other people in the company when you’re the son or daughter of the owner. This presentation helps you deal with that particular issue.
