Episode 165 | Internal > External : An Interview with Jeff Henderson

Posted by Jenni Catron on Jun 28, 2022 5:00:00 AM

In a post pandemic world most experts would argue that the pandemic simply highlighted and reinforced the current state of one's organizational culture. As the workplace continues to shift and gaps in the workforce remain, those who are still seeking “next” are desiring to belong to a distinct culture that emulates purpose and meaning from the inside —> out.

In this week's episode, Jenni had a conversation with Jeff Henderson about the importance of knowing what you are FOR as an organization but also as an individual. Named by Forbes Magazine as one of 20 speakers you shouldn’t miss, Jeff has become a trusted voice for businesses and non-profit organizations. Jeff has worked for well-known organizations such as the Atlanta Braves, Callaway Gardens, Chick-fil-A and North Point Ministries, one of the largest churches in America. While there, Jeff was the lead pastor for three churches over 17 years and helped launch North Point Online, one of the largest online ministries in the world.

Today people are looking to belong to a culture that takes care of it’s people; an organization that prioritizes humanity over systems. And those on your current teams are desperately seeking to be led. But as leaders, we must first remember to prioritize how we lead ourselves if we are to have lasting impact leading others. As we do the hard work to bring the best version of ourselves - culture lifts! The greatest gift you can give to your team is the internal work you will do, more than anything you will do external.
