In this episode of the Unseen Leadership podcast, Chandler Vannoy and Josh Hunter are joined by Trevin Wax who is senior vice president of Theology and Communications at Lifeway Christian Resources. He is also the general editor of The Gospel Project, and the author of multiple books, including Rethink Your Self, This Is Our Time, and Gospel Centered Teaching.
During their conversation, they discuss how to produce high-level content, the cultural trends for young leaders in the years to come, and how to create a habit of writing.
QUOTES FROM EPISODE 54:
“We should first look up to God to see who we were created to be, then look around to the people of God that we belong to, then last we should look to yourself to understand who we are.”
“God doesn’t just lead us to the valley. He leads us through it.”
“Indecisiveness can be very counterproductive in leadership for your young leaders.”
“It takes a certain level of mental energy to consistently be creative over the long haul.”
“If you want to write consistently, then you need to learn to write and not be afraid of your reader.”
“You need to write to serve the reader.”
“If you want to write constantly, you have to read constantly.”
“One of the misconceptions I had earlier on was that once you step into greater leadership was that the weight of the execution work you have to do would get easier. But it doesn’t.”
“In a remote work environment, it will be harder for young leaders to stand out and rise up in an organization.”
