Re: Never sure when to give kudos and when not to!

In church today we had a lesson on Old Testament #27 about leadership. They read this quote: Encourage class members to be good leaders by giving service, trusting and obeying the Lord, having faith in him, teaching from the scriptures, and following the prophets. I think this is the training and em...

Re: Never sure when to give kudos and when not to!

That's been my experience at church too.

It is like they have a little box a leader is allowed to play in...they want them to be creative with new ideas within that little box...not out of the box. Everything else gets shot down.

Re: Would you want to be a leader in the celestial kingdom?

FWIW a lot of corporate training is a joke and far worse than ours. Weekends where people go rafting or primal screaming and then get thrust back into the office and told to use those experiences somehow. A lot of jobs are essentially wasteful - books have been written on the subject. ... Lol, the ...

My kids, my parents, my in-laws, uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, and nephews are all part of the LDS heritage tapestry. I am not particularly anxious to sever myself from that sense of belonging.

Re: Never sure when to give kudos and when not to!

The church, unfortunately, is not the place for administrative IDEATION. Perhaps some of the reason for that is because when you are wandering in the desert, it isn't about how to wander more efficiently or more creatively. More creative ideas don't necessarily get you to the promised land. I guess...

Re: Would you want to be a leader in the celestial kingdom?

Confidence and opportunity can make a great leader. But it can also backfire, and create a lot of people who think they are good leaders, when they're really quite awful. Good point. I'm not sure how self-aware many of the leaders are, and there really isn't honest feedback to them either since we ...

Re: The Prosperity Gospel

I thought this was an interesting article about how the Vatican feels about the US-centric "prosperity gospel" beliefs... Vatican-OK'd journal dissing 'prosperity gospel', US evangelicals I agree with this statement: “In truth, one of the serious problems that the prosperity gospel brings is its per...

Re: Would you want to be a leader in the celestial kingdom?

There are definitely a lot of BAD examples of leadership in the church.

It's why I always appreciate the few that buck the trend and do it their own way.

Re: Spiritual Anchors

. In fact, the only real reason he decided to go, was because the opportunity was scarce, and entering the temple was (after dedication) very exclusive. Those two facts caused him to take a mental shortcut to decide to do something he really had no interest in doing. That's interesting!! Lots of tr...

Re: Interesting Insight from an Unexpected Source

I found it surprising and comforting that my shift back to a more humanist (both from a personal and societal) perspective is historically what happened globally. Fowler's stages of faith were similarly comforting to me. Not Mormon. I also work with a Catholic organization and have seen their accep...
