Episode 157 | “What’s Here Now?” A Practice of Presence: An Interview with Jeanne Stevens

Posted by Jenni Catron on May 3, 2022 5:00:00 AM

When it comes to creating cultures of psychological safety, building both trust and belonging, how can we better lead from a place of emotional and relational intelligence that will enable both ourselves and our teams to show up more fully? 

In this week's episode, Jenni has a conversation with Jeanne Stevens, Founder and Co-Lead Pastor of Soul City Church in Chicago, IL. - one of America's fastest growing urban churches. Prior to starting Soul City Church, Stevens was on the pastoral staff at Willow Creek Community Church and North Point Community Church. A sought-after speaker, leader, and writer, Jeanne's passion is to help people wake up to their purpose as they pursue a life of wholehearted freedom. 

We were created to be “human beings” not “human doings”. But how do we as leaders manage the very real tensions between rehashing the past, rehearsing the future, all while learning to lead from a place of presence that postures us to lead with both a peace and a power that ultimately challenges those around us to do the same? Because we can reflect and we can plan but that will not happen without intentional space created in the present.
