In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Chandler Vannoy are joined by Andrew Peterson, musician and author. They discuss the following questions:
- What is a conflict or failure that has benefited you in your leadership?
- Who or what has been the greatest leadership influence in your life?
- What book would you gift yourself as a young leader?
- If you could teach any course on any topic, what would it be?
- When you look at from a Scriptural stand point and from who we are as being created in the image of God, what does that mean?
“There is a tendency in our current climate to be really afraid of being wrong and it can make you second guess everything.”
“Being wrong is one of the best things you can be, and what I mean by that is that being wrong forces you to experience mercy and humility and teaches you how to ask for forgiveness.”
“The thing that is way better than getting it right every time is being humble enough to know that you can’t get it right every time.”
“Tipping into my 40s wasn’t the death of a person, it was like the death of some dreams. It felt like the were things in me dying to make room for other things God had for me.”
“There have been so many ups and downs over the years, by the time I hit 40 this massive tidal wave of grief slammed into me.”
“Helping people see that no matter what their gifting is, they are called to speak light into the world and bring order out of chaos and build the kingdom of God in a creative way.”
“I think people need to be given permission sometimes to think of themselves as creatives, they don’t realize that they have this bright fire of the image of God burning in them and the world needs that light.”
“You are always building a kingdom. The question is, whose kingdom are you building?”
