Game Changers! Bring change to the way you think and live

“Let the wise listen and add to their learning and let the discerning get guidance.”   Proverbs 1:5

Over the years in my various leadership positions of coaching, mentoring, pastoring, counseling and parenting, I have had the privilege of facilitating and participating in many leadership learning initiatives. I’ve done my best to add to my learning and to get guidance as the above proverb states by utilizing my two ears and one mouth in that ratio. If you know me, you know that’s hard for me sometimes, but I’ve tried. As I’ve listened to many people, I’ve also collected a lot of chicken scratch notes and have quickly jotted down thoughts and ideas which would pop into my head while reading or engaging in a great conversation.

This resource contains a compilation of these impromptu jottings as well as some truths I’ve known and taught for years. I’ve given the title of “Game Changers” to this collection because that is what they’ve become to me and countless others. Whether they’ve brought about clarity, touched on a next level nerve or simply changed the momentum of the final outcome, many of them continue to help change the way we look at ourselves and the people in our spheres of influence.

I must say that I do not claim authorship of all the content. While some of these writings are original with me, others are a form of someone else’s idea or thought process, often drawn out from a group discussion. Regardless, they collectively mirror the truth found in Romans 12:2 which says, “…Let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.” It’s true, when I think differently, I act differently. And ultimately, my actions become the words to my life’s story.

I invite you to start a Game Changers Study Group in order to learn together and to get the most depth out of the content. This works best by covering one section of “Game Changers” per session.

“Game Changers” is perfect for:

  • Leadership groups in the workplace
  • Coffee shop study groups
  • One-on-one Coaching
  • Small groups at school or church
  • Staff development
  • Family discussion starters

All the best,

Insights to Live By….

I’ve always told our teenage boys, “Don’t peak in high school.” However, with all the hoopla and attention we adults give to this age group, it’s easy for them to believe they’re celebrities. The more I’ve unpacked this over the years, I’m convinced this is more about the adults feeling good about what “their” kids can do for them than anything else. The teenage years are “seed years” and are meant for trial and error, for lumps and lessons and for growth and development into the young adults they will become. They don’t need more hoopla and attention, they simply need Unconditional Love from their parents and other caring adults.
