Motivational Business Speaker Joel Garfinkle Speaks to Christians
Five Ways to Use Your Christian Strengths to Grow Your Leadership Abilities
Christian business leaders sometimes feel isolated in their jobs. Finding Christian motivational business speakers and conferences help plug them into a rich source of strength. They learn how to use their Christian values to influence others and how to stand up and be true to themselves.
Joel Garfinkle understands the ethics and integrity at play in Christian leadership. His many presentations on Executive Leadership come from a core of being true to your values and presenting yourself in your best light.
Garfinkle’s training covers a broad range of ways to improve your leadership skills. Here are five that will strengthen any Christian business leader.
1. Building Positive Relationships at Work.
Even though you may work with people vastly different from yourself, you can build on your strengths. You are in a position to act with love, kindness, integrity and trust to form strong relationships with team members-- as well as those below and above you in the office hierarchy.
As you step out with a generous nature, you may become the go-to person to smooth over difficult relations. You may find yourself becoming a peace-maker and reducing gossip or ill-feelings in others.
2. Mentoring and Being Mentored.
You know the importance of relationships and the value of inside help. Take the opportunity to reach down and mentor a rising star. Your one-on-one teaching can influence company culture and create a more Christian-valued atmosphere.
At the same time, seek for an excellent mentor for yourself. As your mentor gets to know you, he or she can become your advocate. They can see the ethics and morality you bring to the business. They can teach you how best to navigate your upward climb.
3. Increasing Productivity.
Finding the work that matters most can sometimes be tricky. Garfinkle helps rising leaders avoid traps that waste your time and shows you how to be more productive.
Indeed, as you find the work that brings the most reward, you’ll see your enjoyment at work increasing. And increased efficiency allows you more free time for service and fellowship.
4. Life Balance.
Perhaps Christian business leaders seek this life balance more than others. You understand that work is not the entire focus of life. You can learn ways to set boundaries so you have time for family and church. Garfinkle helps leaders reduce stress in their lives and to be able to disconnect while they recharge themselves.
5. Stand out and Get Noticed.
Being a Christian automatically helps you stand out. But there are other ways to become more visible in highly positive ways. You can speak up at meetings, build your own brand, and bring new ideas to life through your positive outlook and hard work.
