How open do you feel to take a risk at work? Are you afraid that if you make a mistake you’ll be embarrassed or rejected? How much do you trust the members of your team?

According to experts, questions like these help to measure a critical aspect of a healthy workplace—psychological safety. But what is psychological safety? Let’s look at what two experts say.

In 2012, Google was curious about what made a successful team, so they created “Project Aristotle” to...

Faith Blog: Why the Gospel Isn’t Just for Unbelievers

faith Sep 29, 2020

I have fallen in love with the Gospel, and I’m not afraid to say it. I’ve been a Christian for more than 30 years, and even more than 30 years later, I feel like I’m starting to understand what the Gospel is about.

Maybe I’m a slow learner or have been busy with other things, probably yes. But maybe also the Gospel isn’t just for unbelievers; maybe believers are meant to fall in love with the Gospel over again.

We are tempted to think that the Gospel...

Faith Blog: 5 Reasons I'm Excited for the Gospel-Centered Enneagram

enneagram faith Aug 06, 2020

As you know, I work with the Enneagram. Why does it excite me so much? Here are five reasons.

Because the Enneagram is a tool that unlocks more.

The real work of the Enneagram isn’t becoming an expert in the Enneagram. That’s like a gardener becoming an expert in the shovel but stopping there. No, expertise in using a shovel helps her garden better, and understanding the Enneagram can help you in whatever ways that matter to you.

So if the Gospel matters to you, you can aim the...

Mastery Vs. Mystery: a Tension of Enneagram and Strengths

enneagram strengths Aug 04, 2020

As the finishing touches are being applied to our study of Enneagram and...

Why Your Strengths Aren't All About You

strengths Jul 09, 2020

A woman was having a birthday and decided to throw a party for herself. As the guests gathered, she focused the conversation on how each person knew her. After 40 minutes, she could see her guests were growing weary, so she shifted the conversation: “Okay, enough about me. What do you think of me?”

Sometimes working with strengths can feel this way, and if we’re not careful, strengths can become self-centered. But your strengths are not all about you. Actually, a...
