Stories of leadership and life with Jo Saxton and Steph O'Brien

Nov 27, 2017

Daniel Hill from Chicago is talking white supremacy, racism and his own awakening to his white cultural background.  Listen to understand:

- why people so often congregate with their own racial groups even when given many positive opportunities to interact with others.   

- What makes white people so oblivious to white culture

- What we can all do to be less ignorant and make race relations better

 

Discussion questions:

1) Where have you believed the lie of white supremacy (the unconscious or conscious belief that white people are more valuable) in your own life?

2) Think about an occasion where you now recognize you minimized racism as just ‘insensitivity’.  Do you need to repent? What would you do differently next time?

3) Do you surround yourself with people from a variety of cultures and backgrounds? What steps can you take to become more culturally aware? (Develop new friendships, follow people from different cultures on social media, read books from a variety of different backgrounds.)

How can we access whether the feedback we get (and give) is worth investing time and energy in or not? That’s where the feedback assessment tool comes in.  Looking in depth at the 4 spectrums, Jo and Steph examine how we can filter our feedback and invest our energies where they should be - in growth and learning, no matter how the feedback is presented.  

The 4 spectrums:

1) Kind of feedback it is

2) Kind of person

3) Clarity of the feedback

4) Relevance to our call, context and community

 

If you do not see the free resource attached to the show notes you may use this link:

Feedback Assessment Tool

 

Discussion questions:

1) List 3 people you know who are trusted experts or mentors.  Do you respond well to and ask them for regular feedback?

2) Whose feedback do you find yourself spending more brain energy on than you should?

3) What have you learned in this podcast that can help you give good feedback to others?

Please note that this book is NOT written by our Lead Stories Jo Saxton: Snail Trail: In Search of a Modern Masterpiece.  It is a lovely book for your kids so you may want to check it out, but any positive feedback needs to be sent to the real author and not our Jo Saxton. Thank you.

We would however love feedback on the feedback assessment tool! You can let us know at:

When you lead you will be criticized. So how can we lead on in the midst of criticism? Jo and Steph talk from personal experience about how they have received criticism and how to filter negative feedback without getting bitter or discouraged.  

 

Discussion questions:

  1. What have you not done for the Kingdom because of the fear of rejection or criticism?  

 

  1. What inner critique do you have of other leaders that you haven’t processed yet?

 

  1. What is at stake if you don’t lead on in the midst of criticism or potential criticism?
