A Shepherd’s Heart

Some friends explored buying a company, but due to safety issues in the plant, they decided to pass. Several years later their management team revisited the discussion. One of their leaders proclaimed, “That plant would be safer the day after we buy it, because we care.” Their compassion for the people drove them to reconsider, and ultimately buy the other [...]

5 Star Review

Matt’s chest tightened as he listened to the voice mail from Roger, an unsatisfied client. “Matt, we won’t be needing your services any longer. Your company dropped the ball on this project.” Instead of making excuses or begging for a second chance, Matt responded with offering a 100% refund as well as a personal guarantee to correct the problem. Rogers’s [...]

Dodging a Bullet

Sam shared with me that Seth, a mutual acquaintance of ours, called him years ago and asked Sam to consider serving on a board of a local business that Seth had purchased. Sam as a courtesy to Seth met with the local manager, but left the meeting feeling very uncomfortable. Sam passed on the opportunity. Sam told me, “God protected [...]

Sprint to the Finish

Matt’s daughter is a gifted track athlete, excelling in the 100 meter dash. She also is successful in longer distance races, such as the cross country event.

Honor Your Vows

A banker I know says it’s been hard to convince his colleagues to embrace Christianity when they see churches who won’t honor their loan agreements. My friend’s experience has been that many churches are quick to renegotiate when interest rates decline, but they would never allow the bank to renegotiate when rates increase. Some churches teach integrity matters more than [...]

Values – Based Business

Many Christian CEOs desire to influence their organization with God’s Word while being sensitive to the team members who may not embrace the Christian faith. One of the best ways to shape a culture is to focus on values. Since many of the values we commonly embrace come right out of the Bible, it’s a non-threatening way to communicate God’s [...]

Small Businesses Beware

All new hires are important, but a small business jeopardizes their culture even more if someone makes a poor hiring decision. If you have twenty employees who have represented your organization well, hiring the wrong person will hurt, but it’s unlikely to devastate your culture. However, if you’re the only employee and you bring on someone new, they become 50% [...]

A Word of Wisdom

One of the hardest things about interviewing job candidates is the relationships that develop and cloud your judgment. My friend, Joe, reminded me of this truth recently. Joe has helped hire thousands of employees, so I called him for help. When I shared with Joe about a possible employee I was considering, Joe said, “They’re not the right fit, Rick. [...]

The Armor of God

It was the end of our first ever all-day conference, called Faith Incorporated. My wife, Kathy, and I were on a high. Then, author and radio personality, Chip Ingram pulled Kathy and I aside to say, “What just happened here today was incredible, but you two need to be prepared. The enemy is going to attack you.” Chip was right. [...]

Building a Reputation

When I was six years old there lived a family nearby who had multiple kids known as “the terrors” of the neighborhood. Although there was likely a nice child in their family, due to the majority being so mean, my friends and I avoided the entire family. In business, when we allow the behaviors and attitudes of our people to [...]
