Episode 53: Matt & Jennifer Martin – Second Chair Leadership

In this episode of “The Today Counts Show” Jim introduces us to his friends and colleagues, Matt and Jennifer Martin.  Matt and Jennifer both serve as executive pastors at NorthRock Church in San Antonio Texas.  The subject today is “second chair leadership”.   If this is a term you’re not familiar with don’t worry, by the end of this podcast you’ll have a clear understanding of the definition and the role of a send chair leader!  Jennifer shares a perfect, easy to understand analogy.  On a football team there is only one quarterback on the field (running the offense) but… there are several receivers and running backs on the field executing the plays under the leadership of the quarterback.  Matt reinforces this idea by pointing out that the receivers and running backs are the players who get the ball across the goal line much more often than the quarterback.  The lesson to be learned here is this; know your role on the team, accept it and be all in to support your leader and your team. Jim, Matt and Jennifer share an honest, educational, fun conversation between friends about their lives and professions.  All are welcome to listen and learn. Together, we can invest in great leaders. You can make a difference!

Episode 52: A Conversation With Ryan Hawk

Today Jim Piper welcomes a very, special guest to the show… Ryan Hawk!  Ryan is a writer, advisor, entrepreneur and host of the hugely successful podcast “The Learning Leader Show“.  His second book “The Pursuit of Excellence” is a must-have resource for anyone who is serious about learning and improving their leadership skills. Ryan tells Jim that his motivation for starting his podcast (which now has over 500 episodes) was to create his own leadership PHD program.  A program filled with wise, successful leaders willing to share their hard earned knowledge for free!  Along the way his business grew into other areas organically without any grand plans.  Opportunities presented themselves after a lot of hard work stacking up good, productive days focused on his core values.  Ryan also talks about growing up and living a very “sports centered” life.  A path that lead him to coaches and trainers that shaped the man he is today.  There’s a great story involving a very famous NFL quarterback and how competing with him in college lead to an important life lesson.  This barely scratches the surface of the massive amount of information to be found in this episode of “The Today Counts Show”.  Don’t miss it!

Episode 51: The Sin of Unforgiveness – Part 2

Jim is back with part two of today’s topic; the sin of unforgiveness.  If you missed Ep. 50 – The Sin of Unforgiveness – Part 1, you might want to give that one a listen and then return to this episode. Get ready for some truthful, possibly hard to hear, teaching about sin and the messy business of forgiveness.  There are two people involved in every sin; the person who commits the sin and the person who was sinned against.  In order for this to be resolved it requires effort and commitment by both parties involved.  Repentance AND forgiveness are required!  There are no sugar coated, societal, political, alternative solutions.  Repentance AND forgiveness are required or darkness will spread in the lives of all involved.  Yeah… it could get messy.

Episode 50: The Sin of Unforgiveness – Part 1

Jim Piper wants you to think about sin.  Probably not in the way you might imagine.  It could even be a completely new way for you to think about sin and the importance of forgiveness.  Do children and adolescences sin the same as adults? If you are a believer you know that we all sin but are there different levels of sin?  So many questions.  How does all of this relate to personal and even business relationships?  Today’s episode lays the groundwork for a deeper discussion to be continued in Part 2!

Episode 49: How Do I Get Better?

As this year comes close to an end, Jim Piper continues with an underlying theme of reflection.  It may sound cliché but remembering the events and the people in your past will help you understand what shaped you.  The good and the bad all add up to what you are today. If you want to change or improve something about yourself in the future, it helps to understand what got you to this point in your life.  Jim lets loose a stream of consciousness highlighting a few key moments in his life that shaped the man he is today.  Use this podcast as inspiration and encouragement.  Here’s a little something to think about in the new year, “Easy is so boring”.
