Relationships Pt. 3: The Life-Saving Practice of Clarifying Expectations

Unclear and unmet expectations have the power to rip apart relationships, divide teams, blow up families, and sink entire churches. That’s why expectations are a matter of life and death! There are 4 primary ways expectations go wrong: Your expectation is unconscious. You didn’t even know you had an expectation until it was violated. Your expectation is unrealistic. It is not reasonable given the person or circumstance. Your expectation is unspoken. You did not clearly articulate your expectation to another person. Your expectation is un-agreed upon. The other person never agreed to follow-through with your expectation. The good news is – this can all be remedied by learning the life-saving skill of Clarifying Expectations.

Relationships Pt. 2: Slay the Dragon of Wrong Assumptions

Much of the pain we experience in relationships is the fruit of wrong assumptions. Assumptions are like a dragon that seeks to destroy our well-being. ·      People quit their jobs over wrong assumptions ·      Churches split over wrong assumptions ·      Couples divorce over wrong assumptions ·      Families stop talking to one another over wrong assumptions. When we make assumptions about others without checking them out, it’s easy to start telling ourselves stories about them in our heads that are not true. We are bearing false witness in our own thoughts, resulting in damaged relationships. The principle is simple: NEVER assume you know what a person is thinking or feeling.    In part two of this series, Geri Scazzero is joined by her husband Pete, to explore the 8 essential relationship skills everyone must adopt in order to cultivate emotionally healthy relationships. This skill is called “STOP. Read more.

Very few are trained to do it well. Sadly, often it is only after a crisis or scandal that people realize the “Board” was not really functioning, trained, or doing what they were entrusted to do. But the truth is – that healthy, thriving, flourishing churches have healthy, thriving, flourishing boards. In today’s podcast episode, I outline the 7 must-have qualities for building an emotionally healthy board. When your board gets these 7 things right, everyone in your church wins for the long haul.

So we prepare cutting-edge weekend services, craft sermons for large groups, publish social posts that we hope will have a viral reach, all while squeezing in time for people when we can. But when we look at the life of Jesus, we see that he focused his time on a few. In fact, he turned the world upside-down by concentrating his ministry on 12 men! In today’s podcast, I answer common questions like “How do I choose just 3 or 12 disciples?”, “Who should I be looking for? (and, who should I avoid?), and “What do I actually do with them?” This is not easy and fast work, but.
