Leaders are more vulnerable after a success than after a failure. Failure is humbling, but success fosters pride. In this episode, Richard and Sam continue to draw lessons from the life and leadership of the Old Testament prophet Elijah.

Christianity is the only major world religion with a chronic shortage of men.  In this episode, Richard discusses this gender imbalance with David Murrow, author of the bestselling book “Why Men Hate Going to Church.” Murrow is not a pastor, professor or theologian. He’s just a guy in the pews who noticed a disturbing trend: churches are losing their men and boys.  His efforts have spawned articles in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and the Chicago Tribune. He’s married with three children, six grandchildren and lives in Chugiak, Alaska.

“It’s so life-changing and up to date,” Estes said. “It’s an old study, but God reveals Himself in a new way every time.”

In 1804, Lewis and Clark set out in canoes to find a route to the Pacific Ocean. Everything went well until they hit the Rocky Mountains. At that point, they had three choices: they could quit, continue using ineffectual methods, or adapt. In this episode, Richard and Sam discuss adaptive leadership and Tod Bolsinger’s book “Canoeing The Mountains.”

Serving performs. In this episode, Richard talks servant leadership, the challenges women leaders face, and weathering the pandemic with Cheryl Bachelder, former CEO of Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen, Inc. Bachelder has also held leadership positions at Yum! Brands, Domino’s Pizza, RJR Nabisco, the Gillette Company, and Procter & Gamble. Today, she serves on boards, mentors CEOs, and invests in philanthropy.
