He's back! Dan Reiland joins us in episode 91 with a fresh, free-flowing conversation about leadership, self-care, time management, priorities, and other fun stuff. Dan has been a regular on our podcast for over a year now, and we surprised him by asking him to just riff with us about life and leadership, off script and off the cuff. He agreed. The result was an inspiring conversation that will challenge and encourage you!
We have been sitting on this episode for about six weeks. The reason? The sound quality! It was such a good conversation, but the sound quality was not what I usually get from our calls. I wasn't sure if we could use it. Then, I figured it out. I simply filtered the file to sound as though we were all talking on the phone, the telephone. Remember that long word? It is vintage and unique, a masterpiece of recording! (let's make pretend anyway...) Truthfully, it's just fine. You'll enjoy it.
The best contribution Dan could ever make to your pastoral ministry, he has already provided. It is in his book titled, Amplified Leadership - Five Practices to Establish Influence, Build People, and Impact Others for a Lifetime. This book will make you a better leader and pastor and builder of others, if you read it and apply it to your ministry life. This is truly a book written and proven in the trenches of ministry.
In Dan's church, 12Stone Church, near Atlanta, they use this book to establish leadership philosophy and language. This is the standard by which they talk about leadership, development, and ministry. It's also the standard for how they measure it.
If there were a take-away for you, it would be to simply buy this book, study, and practice it. It will work.
Enjoy episode 91!
