Leadership Principles Don't Change But Styles Do
Click Here for the resources from our interview with Dean
“You have to first be an excellent follower, before you'll ever be an excellent leader, and I'm really thinking that, that's more true every time I see it happen in front of my face.” - Dean Miles
Samuel Johnson once said, “People need to be reminded more often than they need to be instructed.” We KNOW how to be good business leaders, managers, spouses, parents, and followers of Christ, we just often don’t DO what we know.
Join us as we talk with Dean Miles, founder and president of Bridgepoint Coaching and Strategy Group. Dean’s past experience working with the Drug Enforcement Administration paired with his sales and business experience has helped him learn about body language, management, and how we react when faced with the truth. His goal is not to heap more instruction, but to remind people of what they already know to be true.
What you will learn
“There is a difference between leadership styles and leadership principles. Principles are timeless. Leadership styles, however, have an expiration date.” - Dean Miles

“Every other thing that we've done in business typically ends up being divorced from church because they don't understand what I'm doing and I get frustrated and feel trapped. And God's saying it's not the right model.” - Andy Mason
Are you a successful business person who is searching for your place in your local church? Are you delegated to meetings or “passing the bucket” because the church leadership doesn’t know what to do with you and your talents? Do you have a dream but you don’t know how to make it real?
Join Andy Mason, director of Heaven in Business, as he shares his personal journey from New Zealand to Redding, California. He learned that business practices and the institutional church don’t have to be divorced, they can work hand in hand. You don’t have to have a Christian company to have a company that follows Jesus. Honoring God, others, and yourself in your business will often yield unexpected results!
What you will learn:
Courage: sometimes God says “go” while other around you say “stop”
How to honor others by first honoring yourself
Why conflict and misunderstanding can be catalysts for positive results
Why forgiveness is absolutely necessary
“I feel like one key piece that we need to do is as business people, that you need to forgive institutional church … for misunderstanding you. And if you've been told that you've got a second class anointing or that you're not anointed and it leaves you confused and powerless, the solution is not to divorce yourself from institutional church. The solution is forgiveness.” - Andy Mason
