Don’t Be Distracted

At a recent “Faith at Work Summit,” Doug Napier, with the Alliance Defending Freedom organization, spoke about religious liberties and the challenges many businesses face in today’s times. The very phrase, “Separation of church and state” has been so drummed into many people’s minds that it has distracted many from living out their faith in the workplace. Doug proclaimed, “Are [...]

The Solution for Worry

Worry is not something I typically struggle with, but at the time of a “Faith at Work Summit,” I was facing concerns that led me towards some occasional bouts of anxiety. One of the Summit speakers was Pastor Mark Davis. Because of my concerns, I heard Pastor Davis’s point on worry more clearly that day. His claim was that, “Worry [...]

The Older Man in the Room

One business leader, Kevin, mentioned to me that he now finds himself adjusting to the fact that he is now often the oldest man in the room. Kevin realizes that as he used to look up to his elders, now others are looking up to him for guidance. In our insecurities, we can doubt we have much to offer, even [...]

Shining Like Stars

A common question I hear when speaking about faith at work comes from those who are not CEOs. Many see how a CEO can affect spiritual change within an organization, but those who are not CEOs doubt their own ability to impact change. This kind of thinking undermines the opportunities of all people to make a difference. Philippians 2 teaches, [...]

Delegating Effectively

God has gifted my wife, Kathy, with an amazing gift of leadership. I’ve seen her use it to orchestrate an amazing high school reunion, launch a 50+ ministry at our church, and now, she is starting a workplace ministry for women within Integrity Resource Center.   Kathy typically gets so excited about her new project that she easily assembles a [...]

A Massive Fraud

When I was a banker, many banks became adept at encouraging their banking representatives to increase profits by selling multiple accounts to each new customer. It seems Wells Fargo took this practice to a whole new level. It’s reported that Wells Fargo employees opened over 1.5 million new accounts for customers without their permission, generating millions in fees. Over 5,000 [...]

Just Be Patient

“Just be patient, and run your race,” Matt shouted to his daughter over the call of the Track and Field marshal.  Matt and his daughter had a plan. One that would play to her strengths. Bang!  A wave of runners left the starting line.  Within moments of the race, Matt knew his daughter was diverting from the original plan. Suddenly, [...]

Kindness is Better

My wife and I love watching the “Wonder Years” reruns. Kevin Arnold, the lead character, was my age and lived a similar teenage life as I did. Recently we watched an episode when Kevin went to work with his father. This episode reflected how management styles have changed in the workplace since 1968. Bosses during that era seemed to be [...]

Black Friday Revolt

In 2015, REI stores, known for selling outdoor and fitness apparel, made a bold move. They declared that Black Friday had gotten out-of-hand and they were going to close their stores to encourage people to spend time outdoors instead. Since their mission is about encouraging outdoor activities, their move, in alignment with their values, sent a strong message about their [...]
