In this episode, the team discusses hopefulness rooted in Jesus and how that hope works in us amidst anxiety. When we lead with an anxious posture, we tend to focus on our lack of control, uncertainty, or fear. As hopeful leaders, we look to the future, striving to see it through the lens of the gospel. Each episode features a quote of the week, big takeaways, and a Growing Together segment geared at imperfect leaders who are seeking development in their leadership potential.

Quote of the Week:
“Instilling hope may seem like an obvious requirement for leading other people. Hope gives followers something to look forward to, and it helps them see a way through chaos and complexity. Knowing that things can and will be better in the future is a powerful motivator. When hope is absent, people lose confidence, disengage, and often feel helpless.” —Strength Based Leadership, Tom Rath & Gallup
