In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Dan Iten are joined by Brad Lomenick who is a leadership consultant, speaker, founder of BLINC, and author of The Catalyst Leader and H3 Leadership. During their conversation, they discuss the following questions:
- What is one thing you’ve read recently that has had an impact?
- What are you listening to?
- What is one tool or resource you’ve started using recently?
- Who is one person who has influenced you recently?
- What is one lesson you’ve learned recently?
“I think a lot of training is really more about confidence than it is competence.” – Todd Adkins
“If you become a curator of connections, resources or talent, you automatically have influence in the place you traffic.” – Brad Lomenick
“Conversation, community, and connection around a table with people today is arguably more desirable than a conference or a big gathering where it’s only about content.” – Brad Lomenick
“As you think about the way you curate your church, your content, or the friendships you have, lean more into how are you creating transformational experiences that allow for a person to feel like it’s it was created for them.” – Brad Lomenick
“The things that are going to perhaps make the most impact on people are the things that don’t scale well. It’s the things that are one-on-one, very customized, and specific to that individual.” – Brad Lomenick
“People want to feel like they’re getting something that is so customized to them, something that is built on every sort of their felt needs. This is the challenge in today’s environment, especially around leadership.” – Brad Lomenick
“One of the things that you’ll see whether someone is a pastor or just a normal person is that there is a great desire to be known. Not to be a user, not to be an acquaintance, or distant friend on social media, but to truly be known.” – Todd Adkins
