It Starts with ‘C’ and Ends in ‘Us!’” The ONE WORD That Transforms Relationships For Good

Can ONE WORD really change how we connect with our community and neighbors? Listen to this episode to find out what the word actually is! Hint: it starts with “C” and ends in “us.” Dust explores one of the “golden threads” that runs through a number of interviews on the NOWLeading Podcast and unpacks the ramifications of living out this ONE WORD. Reminder: The NOWLeading Podcast is about ”exploring the art of leading from a Lutheran point of view.” The conversations and thoughts on the podcast are built on the assumption that we are living in an era of transition. This era requires leaders with a strong set of values who are resilient, compassionate, and flexible.
