In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Daniel Im breakdown the leadership book The Power of Moments by Chip Heath and Dan Heath. In their conversation they discuss the following questions:
- What’s the book and why does it matter?
- Overview of the book
- How applicable is the book to leadership in my church?
- What are things churches should ignore from the book?
- What can you do this week in light of the book?
“Research has found that in recalling experiences we ignore most of what happened and focus instead on a few particular moments.”
“There are a lot of powerful moments that happen in a person’s life that often are a turning point for them to come to know the Lord.”
“Defining moments shape our lives, but we don’t have to wait for them to happen, we can be the author’s of them.”
“A defining moment is a short experience that is both memorable and meaningful.”
“How do you build peaks in your ministry appeal?”
“What’s that transformational sweet spot for us? Knowledge, experience, and coaching.”
“Pride is about capturing that defining moment when someone achieves something impressive.”
“I don’t think we encourage often enough in our churches.”
“Baptism is a pivotal, powerful moment in the life of that person and that family.”
“Transitions are natural, defining moments we will remember. How can you elevate them?”
