Jay is a CEO and a mentor to aspiring business leaders, but before he became successful, he experienced the worst nightmare of his life. In 1998, Jay was critically injured and his Dad died when the car he was driving collided with a train while Jay was driving drunk. The consequences of that fateful day were numerous and overwhelming: physical pain following several operations, fear of losing his job and family, and the anxiety of being put in prison. What brought him to his knees was actually the catalyst for a whole new life with God at the center.

Discover The Exact Strategies, Beliefs And Habits To Create Your First Million Dollar Or More Business

T Harv talked about

 

  • It’s not called ‘giving back’ because I didn’t take anything in the first place.
  • Hear his struggle and how he used to have to decide between $5 of gas in his tank or eating.
  • If you aren’t doing what you want to do and you’re not where you want to be, there’s something you don’t know.
  • Three things involved to create wealth:
  1. The right vehicle
  2. The right knowledge (generalized knowledge, specific knowledge)
  3. The right you (mindset, attitude, belief, habits & character)
  • Determine how good you are at what you do by your paycheck. That’s your scorecard.
  • Hear why T Harv thinks ‘Rich is a really good idea!’
  • 4 words that’ll change your life.  “Thank You For Sharing”
  • Your mind is a survival mechanism. It’s not designed to make you happy, it’s designed to protect you and look for things that are wrong. Observe each thought as it comes and determine if it is supportive or non-supportive thought.
  • His thoughts on “Power Thinking”
  • You have the ability to delete or install ANY thought that comes to your mind
  • NORMAL IS BORING!

Would you like to increase your leadership effectiveness x 10?

Click here to get Bob's book!  

That is exactly what my friend Bob Tiede shares on this episode.  He put together this essential free resources of 100 of his favorite “Leading With Questions” questions.

This book highlights more than 100 questions to ask yourself, your team, your boss, your friends and family to help you connect with others more deeply and profoundly.

Bob has a passion for equipping and inspiring leaders and you will find this book to accelerate your leadership journey!

“We thought we had the answers, it was the questions we had wrong.”  Bono, Musician and Philanthropist 

Here is an excerpt from Bob's book which you can download HERE

FACT OR OPINION?

Do your staff/peers/leaders ever make statements that you suspect may not actually be true? World War II General George S. Patton was known for his quip:

“How do you know that?”

This is a profoundly simple and effective method for sorting out opinion from fact.

HAVE YOU SEEN CHARIOTS OF FIRE?

Chariots of Fire was the winner of the 1981 Oscar for Best Picture. In the movie, Erik Liddell says, “I believe that God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast and when I run I feel his pleasure.” With this as context here is one of my most favorite questions:

“What are you doing when you feel God’s pleasure?”

INCREASE YOUR EFFECTIVENESS

What are five simple questions you can ask your staff regarding how you could become a more effective leader? Simply ask:

“What do I need to start doing?”
“What do I need to stop doing?”
“What do I need to do more of?”
“What do I need to do less of?”
“What do I need to continue to do?”

WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM JESUS ABOUT ASKING QUESTIONS?

Jesus, the master communicator, went about sharing stories and asking questions. The four Gospels record 173 questions that Jesus asked. You can read all 173 questions by clicking “HERE”  

Might we do well to follow his example? Why do you suppose Jesus asked so many questions? I ask a lot of questions because I don’t know the answers, but that certainly was not true for Jesus! Might it be that he understood that asking was a much better way to engage your audience than telling?

Do you remember how the story of the Good Samaritan ends? Jesus could have said: “So therefore the Samaritan was his neighbor.” But instead he asked, “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

Two of my favorite questions that Jesus asked are found in Mark, chapter 8.  Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them,

“Who do people say I am?”

They replied, “Some say John the Baptist;
others say Elijah; and still others, one of the prophets.”

“But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”

Peter answered, “You are the Messiah.”

I have the same two questions for you:

“Who do people today say that Jesus is?”

“But what about you? Who do you say Jesus is?”

If you are not sure or would like to know more about who Jesus is, I would be delighted to send you one of my favorite books, “More Than A Carpenter” by Josh McDowell, my former colleague of 24 years. Please email me at bob.tiede@cru.org with your mailing address and your book will soon be on its way – with my compliments (offer available U.S. only).

CLOSURE IS OVERRATED

In their book, “Help Them Grow or Watch Them Go,”  my friends, Beverly Kaye and Julie Winkle Giulioni, suggest that closure is overrated. Don’t feel the pressure to wrap up every conversation with a bow. Try this instead:

End your next meeting or conversation with a question.

Explain that there’s no time for a discussion, but that you have one more question that you want to close with. Then, the next time you are with that person, ask if they remember the question. You’ll be surprised that they not only remember the question, but they’ll also have quite a few answers for you.

CONVERSATIONAL FUNDRAISING

If you are in involved in fundraising, would you like meetings with potential donors to be more conversational and less presentational?
Here are six questions from my friend Kent Stroman, author of “Asking about Asking: Mastering the Art of Conversational Fundraising:”

“How did you learn to give?”
“What would you like your gifts to accomplish?”
“How do you decide which projects to support with your own time and money?”
“What are your top three charitable interests this year?”
“What gift did you make that has brought you the most joy?”
“Could you ever see yourself becominginvolved with our mission?”

You have just read a short excerpt from “Great Leaders Ask Questions: a Fortune 100 List”.  If you like what you just read you will want to download and read this entire FREE e-book!

 

Bio

Hi, I’m Bob Tiede. I am passionate about helping leaders shift their paradigm from the pressure of having to have all the right answers to simply having a few of the right questions.

In 2006, while browsing in a bookstore, I came across Leading With Questions by Michael Marquardt. I only had to peruse a few pages before declaring, “This is a keeper.”

The ideas in Leading With Questions changed forever how I looked at leadership, and provided the vision for this website.

What you can expect find on Leading With Questions:

  • Curated wisdom from leaders around the globe
  • Ideas to help you multiply your effectiveness times ten
  • Leadership book recommendations
  • Interviews with thought-leaders, authors, and pastors

At Leading With Questions, you are invited to join the growing league of leaders who are shifting their focus from having all the answers to asking the right questions.

Bob has been on the staff of Cru for 44 years. He currently serves on the U.S. Leadership Development Team and is passionate about seeing leaders grow and multiply their effectiveness. Bob and his wife, Sherry, live in Plano, TX and are blessed with 4 incredible children and 6 remarkable grandchildren.

Let God use your mess for your benefit!

Click Here for the resoruces from our interview with Steven

In this episode, we interview Pastor Steven Furtick.  He used to think the answer to his failures was to fix them, that the solution to his weaknesses was to replace them with strengths. He believed that his character and competency qualified or disqualified him. That is until an online critic caught his attention and made him start asking questions.

In (Un)Qualified: How God Uses Broken People to Do Big Things, Furtick teaches about the discoveries he’s made while wrestling with questions about self-acceptance and self-improvement. He shares the answers he’s found in scripture that have helped him reconcile who he is compared to who he is meant to be.

[su_quote cite="Steven Furtick, lead pastor and founder of Elevation Church in Charlotte, N.C."](Un)Qualified is about finding and embracing who you are in light of who God is. It’s a book about coming to terms with the good, the bad, and the unmentionable in your life and learning how to let God use your mess for your benefit. [/su_quote]

Drawing from the Bible, Furtick uses the story of Jacob to address issues of identity, fear, weakness, comparison, and change. In his witty, high-energy and insightful style, Furtick equips the reader to understand what it truly means for a follower of Christ to be qualified.

“As I’ve wrestled with my own questions, I’ve found myself changing,” says Furtick. “I’ve learned some things about weakness that I never understood before. I’ve come to see God and myself differently, and it’s changing the way I parent, the way I pastor, and the way I approach God.”

(Un)Qualified is an ideal resource for those struggling with the gap between their present reality and their hope for the future. It offers encouragement and inspiration to readers to see themselves as God sees them. After all, as Furtick teaches, “God can’t bless who you pretend to be.”

Pastor Steven Furtick is the founder and lead pastor of Elevation Church in Charlotte, N.C., named by Outreach magazine as one of the fastest growing churches in the nation with 20,000 weekly attendees across multiple locations.

Furtick grew up in Moncks Corner, S.C., where, at age 16, he felt God’s call to start an innovative church in a metropolitan city. This vision became a reality in 2006 when Furtick, along with his wife, Holly, and seven other families, moved to Charlotte and launched Elevation Church. In 10 years, the church has given away over $20 million to local outreach organizations, opened 13 locations, released eight worship albums, launched a daily television program, and continues to reach thousands of people with the hope-filled message of the Gospel.

In his fourth book, (Un)Qualified: How God Uses Broken People To Do Big Things (March 1, 2016, Multnomah Books), Furtick confronts the question of what it means to be deemed “qualified”—whether in ministry, vocation, or life. He untangles the difference of being qualified by God’s definition versus the world’s definition.

“I have to admit, this hasn’t been an easy book to write. It’s not that the topic is particularly controversial. It’s been hard to write because it’s messy,” says Furtick.

“If you’ve ever been frustrated by your failures or exasperated by your weaknesses, this book is for you,” he continues. “But let me warn you, I’m not going to tell you 15 ways to fix yourself in 15 minutes a day. I want to do something that is, I hope, a lot more valuable. I want to be real.”

Furtick is also the author of the New York Times best-sellers Crash the Chatterbox  (Multnomah Books, 2014) and Greater (Multnomah Books, 2012). His debut book Sun Stand Still (Multnomah Books, 2010) calls Christians to activate their faith and be inspired to ask God for the impossible. In addition, he created the DVD and study guide Seven Mile Miracle (Feb. 2013) about the last words of Christ.

Furtick has had the privilege to speak to global audiences at such conferences and churches around the world as the Catalyst Conference, Hillsong Conference and the Willow Creek Global Leadership Summit.

Furtick received a B.A. in communications from North Greenville University and a Master of Divinity from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Holly, have two sons and a daughter.

Be Humble, Stay Hungry, Always Hustle

A mentor of mine handed me a book titled The Catalyst Leader, 8 Essentials for Becoming a Change Maker.  There are few books on leadership that are as equipping and this is one.

You will love this interview with Brad Lomenick, an author and the founder of Catalyst, and a legendary expert on leadership.

As we started talking about his life story and insight on what creates powerful leaders that I realized just how wise he is.

Bio

It’s a bit weird writing about yourself, so the best way to get the scoop on me is to check out my facebook page or follow me on Twitter. I promise to add value! In a nutshell, I’m an Oklahoma boy now residing in the South. I am a passionate follower of Christ, and had the privilege of leading and directing a movement of young leaders called Catalyst for the last 12 years. We see our role as equipping, inspiring, and releasing the next generation of young Christian leaders, and do this throughevents, resources, consulting, content and connecting a community of like-minded Catalysts all over the world. I appreciate the chance to continually connect with and collaborate alongside leaders.

I have now moved into a strategic advisor role with Catalyst, along with several other organizations.

My first book, The Catalyst Leader, released in April 2013, and will be releasing a follow up book in September of 2015 entitled H3 Leadership.

I love Oklahoma Sooners football, and consider myself a strong candidate for the senior golf tour at some point. I would prefer to start most mornings in a duck blind if possible, and if not hunting, you’ll find me on the ski slopes or on a plane. If given the option, I would love to have my own hunting show or maybe even sub in for Piers Morgan on CNN.

Over the last 15 years, I’ve spent a significant amount of time convening leaders. Prior to running Catalyst, I spent 5 years involved in the growth of the nationally acclaimed Life@Work Magazine and did management consulting with Cornerstone Group. Before that, after graduating from the University of Oklahoma, I rode horses for a living on a ranch in the Colorado mountains for several years.

I write about leadership, the next generation, creativity, innovation, social media, teamwork, personal growth, generational issues, execution, and a few other topics. You can hear all kinds of conversations with great leaders I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing like Malcolm Gladwell, Seth Godin, Francis Chan, Tony Dungy, Andy Stanley, Rick Warren, Marcus Buckingham, Dave Ramsey, Bill Hybels and others through the Catalyst Podcast, which is FREE and available on itunes or on the Catalyst website.

I typically post 4-5 times a week. To stay connected, you can subscribe to receive blog updates via email or RSS Feed.

For a little more insight on me, here are ten questions, well, with me….

  1. First Car? 1980 Monte Carlo (green and gray upholstery interior)
  2. Where did you grow up? Bristow, OK (home of the Purple Pirates!). Just outside of Tulsa.
  3. All time Favorite Movie? Lonesome Dove
  4. Favorite Snack Indulgence: Chips and Salsa
  5. All Time Favorite Quote: tough one, but I love this- “Preach the Gospel at all times, and if necessary, use words.”  – St. Francis of Assisi
  6. Ever been skydiving? No. Do you want to? No.
  7. Dream Vacation: either golfing in Scotland and Ireland, or duck/dove/goose hunting in Argentina.
  8. If I could pick a different first name, what would it be? Lom. That way I would be Lom Lomenick.
  9. What do I like best about leading Catalyst? The free t-shirts and swag. Seriously, it’s the thousands of leaders around the US and the world that we have the amazing opportunity to impact, equip and inspire to be a Catalyst in their communities. That is an amazing honor. And we take it very seriously, and hold it with a great sense of stewardship.
  10. What three people would you want to have dinner with tonight? Billy Graham, Bono, and Nelson Mandela.

Bonus Question: What 3 golfers make up your foursome on your trip to Scotland (dreaming here): Jack Nicklaus, Michael Jordan and Bono. And I would invite Charles Barkley just for the humor!
