There are several reasons we justify to not take action. Vulnerability is among the top reasons and ironically it is one of the most important reasons to take action with your faith. Steven and Mike discuss how when we are vulnerable and use that vulnerability to open honest communication between God and our Coworkers, life becomes better. You have to be vulnerable to let God into your life. Have you chosen to leave everything up to God? There are only so many things we can control, but exponentially more things we can’t control. Being vulnerable is not a weakness but a strength with God. Use this strength to change the lives around you for the better!

Bringing in the Light

During the conversation with Mike, Steven shows one of the key things that McGhee Productivity Solutions uses to start off meetings of any kind. It is called “Bringing in the Light”. They use this term as a metaphor for using your energy and thoughts to build a better reception of information, ideas and collaboration just before a meeting. Steven talks about how this is different for every person. If you are a Christ-Follower, bringing in the light might be praying before a meeting or maybe it is just a quick meditation to get your mind ready for collaboration. Whatever the strategy is, what works best for you is the goal. How do you bring in the light before a meeting? How do you prepare yourself to build a better collaboration between your coworkers or employees? Take this time to think and build upon this!
