I believe that business leaders make better decisions when alternative choices of action are analyzed using distinctively Christian principles of faith. Moreover, the probability of achieving goals and objectives—personal and business—is also enhanced when leaders experience philosophical harmony in their beliefs and practices at work and in their personal lives.
I have developed a series of presentations that uplift and encourage Christian business leaders to apply distinctively Christian leadership practices at work. I show Christian business leaders that God is active in their businesses just as He is active in their personal lives. With God’s direction, Christian business leaders reap all of the benefits of participating in the community of faith at work just as in their personal lives.
The result: Christian business leaders will find their lives becoming richer regardless of status, their peace more profound regardless of circumstances, their joy more incredible regardless of outcomes, their perseverance more remarkable regardless of obstacles, their gratitude more heartfelt regardless of accomplishments, and their sense of self more acute regardless of the perspectives and points of view of others.
And, they will make better decisions.
All business leaders, whether Christian or of another faith or of no faith at all, share twelve universal responsibilities at work and are held accountable to successfully achieve them. Christian business leaders, however, can bring the power of God into each of them, dramatically affecting business outcomes both qualitatively and quantitatively.
The Twelve Universal Responsibilities of Business Leaders are:
- Defining the mission of the business
- Establishing the values and culture of the business
- Determining priorities, setting goals and objectives, and communicating them to others
- Holding yourself and others accountable to keep promises and commitments
- Accumulating sufficient resources to achieve goals and objectives
- Practicing good stewardship of resources
- Retaining and recruiting talented employees
- Increasing sales and revenues
- Managing the balance sheet and anticipating trouble
- Protecting the reputation of the business
- Recognizing when change is necessary
- Harvesting and pruning the business
My presentations are uplifting, acknowledging that leadership is not easy. My presentations include practical advice and tools that Christian leaders can use at work to make better choices and reach better conclusions. Here are some of them:
