Working Through Vocational Transition

By Jim Langley

Several of my friends have been dealing with new directions in their work life. These are not individuals just starting their careers, but mature workers who have given much to their respective companies for a good part of their lives. Some received substantial severance packages appropriate for their time of service, but even "golden handshakes" cannot take away the uncertainty of what lies ahead.

Resolving Business Conflicts And Disputes

By Rick Boxx

Over the years, I have the privilege - and challenge - of mediating in several disputes between business partners. In most cases, seeking to resolve them is not pretty nor easy, but very necessary. When someone begins to feel slighted by their partner in some way, the relationship can turn ugly quickly.

Success In The Marketplace Is A Team Sport

By Robert J. Tamasy

To find a template for success in today's workplace, we need look no farther than the human body. Illness and disease are often the result of one part of the body not functioning as it should, or not functioning at all. Imagine an otherwise healthy body without a beating heart, or a brain directing the systems of the body. Even if all the other organs were fully functional, life without even one of the major organs would not be possible.

What Does It Take To Be Truly Rich

By Robert J. Tamasy

A while back, my wife and I visited a restaurant and later filled out a survey about our experience there. In completing the questionnaire, we were automatically entered in a contest with a monetary reward. To our surprise, we were notified we had won and weeks later received a check in the mail. It was not for a huge amount, but we put the unanticipated money to good use.

You Can Be Debt Free

By Rick Warren

More Than ‘Just A Job’

By Robert J. Tamasy

Why do you go to work? To earn a paycheck? We all do that - it is good to have the money to buy food and clothing, put gas in our cars, pay bills, maybe invest a little for the future, and hopefully have some cash left over for fun activities. But is that the only reason you go to work?

Leadership is Integral to Discipleship

By Bruce Witt

Discipleship is fundamental about leadership. Every disciplemaker fills the role of leadership as a “Paul” for the “Timothy”, yet the true leader is Jesus Christ working and using the Paul to teach, train, and ultimately transform the Timothy. The Paul is a vessel or conduit for the Lord to flow through to bring love, grace and the word to another man’s heart. Leaders are God’s instrument to bring the gospel to the world through the process of disciplemaking.
