Voice of Influence

We’ve talked this month about the fact that change challenges us. As part of this theme, I had a conversation with Dr. Espen Klausen last week about the psychology behind how people change.

This week, Roseanne Moore is on the show to help me dive deeper into the concepts of assimilation and accommodation and how they can help us embrace change. In this episode, we discuss some...

Voice of Influence

Today we're extracting the key takeaways from the series we've done this summer about power dynamics and the abuse of power. We started this series because we recognized how important it was to directly address the unhealthy imbalance of power and unhealthy use of power. The first step is to be able to clearly recognize the abuse of power and then to stand up in the face of the abuse of power. In this episode, we're covering why all of this matters, how to know when we should step in, how to step in without causing additional pain, and so much more.

Today we're tackling the subject of narcissism, the systems that allow it, and how to deal with it. This conversation is applicable to organizations of all kinds but we take a deeper look at how it shows up in churches specifically, and in organizations that have a similar structure and culture. I think you're going to find this to be an incredibly rich conversation.

In this episode, Chuck shares how it feels to be on the other side of a narcissist, how to recognize the narcissistic bite, vulnerability versus fauxnerability, what happens when we are complicit with a narcissistic leader, why we protect people in power, how to use our voice even though it may feel narcissistic, and so much more.
