Lead Employees to Excellence at Work, Home and Their Communities


Ephesians 2:10

10For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Part of leading people is developing them to be the best they can be, not only in the workplace but within their families and communities as well. Look at your people from a whole person perspective, not just a ‘worker” perspective. Give your people the opportunity to do greatness in their lives and they will do great things for you. Developing your people skills can impact the communities in which they live and in which you do business. Many companies are putting programs in place that help match employees’ interests to volunteer opportunities in the community. Some companies are shutting down for a week and building homes with Habitat for Humanity, for example.

Develop your people not only to be their best at work but their best at home and their communities.

I have often wanted to manage a process where a company would inspire their people by running a contest in which each employee could present why their volunteer organization is the most impactful. The winner would receive a considerable prize to help fund the employee’s efforts. If you are promoting good works by your employees not only in the workplace, but in the world we live in, you are going great things for God, and you are building a “Kingdom Minded” Organization.

Do you help your employees help others? How do you find your employees’ strengths and match them to community involvement? We would love to know what it is you have going on.

Create a Prosperous Workplace for Employees


Genesis 2:15

5The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.

From the very beginning of time we have been blessed with work! Work is an inevitable part of our lives. When we are not working, we are often thinking about work! Work seems to preoccupy all of us. Work defines us, feeds and prospers us. Work is the foundation of our society and our world. Work, my friends, is not going away. If work is inevitable, and we must take it straight on, why does it have to be terrible at most places of work? 

If work is inevitable, why allow it to be bad?

 If we are honest with ourselves, we know the reason, and it is leadership, plain and simple. Any workplace that employees feel is destructive will always point back to a lack of competent leadership. Work does not have to be a utopia; of course it has elements of discomfort because of its very nature — you’re not fishing or at the beach! Leaders make sure work is a good place for your employees. But work should be enjoyable and meaningful to those who go.

If you manage your business with leadership that creates a culture of inclusion, prosperity, and a shared vision, while fostering plain old family love and relationships, you are building a “Kingdom Minded” Company.

Generous with Your Employees

Are You Generous with Your Employees?


Proverbs 22:9

9The generous will themselves be blessed, for they share their food with the poor.

How many companies give thousands away but their employees can’t afford to buy their medical coverage? This happens more than you might realize.

Having worked at a variety of companies, both secular and Christian-owned, has given me the opportunity to witness a similar thread of generosity absurdity. Oftentimes our tendency to be generous involves looking outward to our communities, our nation or other continents. However, we should, as Christian Leaders, look first inward before looking outward.

Take care of your employees and they will take care of their communities

Let me explain in simple terms — help your employees first so they may be prosperous and go forth to help build the Kingdom. Not paying your employees correctly for the sake of having more dollars to give to a foundation, a foreign mission, or local charity is self-defeating. Ultimately, your employees will grow bitter and their fruit will never ripen.

Help our community of readers

What has your organization done to help your employees? Have you set a good foundation for them to grow, support their families, and build the Kingdom in their communities?

Employees At Work

Be Diligent in Your Decision Making


Leviticus 25:14

14If you sell land to any of your own people or buy land from them, do not take advantage of each other. 15You are to buy from your own people on the basis of the number of years since the Jubilee. And they are to sell to you on the basis of the number of years left for harvesting crops. 16When the years are many, you are to increase the price, and when the years are few, you are to decrease the price, because what is really being sold to you is the number of crops.

In today’s competitive world, companies are experiencing pricing pressures like never before. Being a second or third choice of customers will more than likely put you out of business. The knee-jerk reaction to cut corners, short customers, overcharge or underbid a job with the intention of up-charging later is all too real.

Be diligent in your decision-making; be faithful and so shall HE

Every day, you and your employees are faced with making choices, choices to do the right thing even when you believe it may ultimately harm your company. But that, dear reader, is faulty thinking. Organizations that have solid Mission, Visions and Core Values and lean into them during hard times will prevail. When we put our trust in Christ and do the right thing, make the right choices and stay truthful in our business lives, we will outlive the others. Build a “Kingdom Minded” Organization today, trust in Christ, and be diligent.

What have you experienced in this area that you can share? Can you witness to us an organization that has fallen on hard times, yet maintained its ethics and, in a brief time, returned to great reward? We would love to hear from you below.

Celebrate Employee Talent!

Celebrate Your Talents from within Your Company


Exodus 35:35

35 He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers — all of them skilled workers and designers.

Most companies are packed to the hilt with talented people! Oftentimes the talents of the people are far greater than imagined because we, as leaders, have never tapped fully into them or have even asked what lies beneath. I once worked with a company that spent thousands of dollars paying a web design company to build them a website, when that could have been built by an employee who was on staff, but it was never discovered that they had the resources, the vision, and the talent to do so. The company chose to look elsewhere when what they needed was right under their nose!

 Don’t spend thousands paying for something you already have!

Do you know your employees’ hidden talents? The talents above and beyond their daily job requirements? If you know your people’s talents and draw on them regularly, you will ignite your workplace! You will be building a “Kingdom Minded” Organization.

Help our community of readers

What have you witnessed that worked to advance and optimize the talents of the people in your organization? Have you experienced greatness within your teams without having to look outward? How did you discover those talents from within? Have you been an encouragement to your people, have you leverage their talents?
