In this episode of The Crossroad Podcast, Joey and Kylie discuss the different ways we can approach, handle, and resolve conflict. When we are seeking truth together, conflict is inevitable. That is not a bad thing, just a reality we have to navigate. What are the different ways we can resolve conflict and when it is best to use each? How can conflict actually be a helpful and productive experience? What does it look like to truly “win” a conflict? Join our hosts as they explore these questions and more.

In this episode of The Crossroad Podcast, Joey and Kylie discuss perspective and control. The only way to escape victim mentality is to change one of the three things you can control.

By taking ownership of these, no more and no less, we step into a life of intention, freedom, and purpose.
In this episode of The Crossroad Podcast, Joey and Kylie discuss one of the most important and difficult aspects of leading well. There are two key postures we can take toward life - we can either focus on how things affect me or how I can affect the things around me. Our focus, perspective, and mentality concerning who has authority in our own lives determines how we think and what we do. Taking ownership of our own life rather than blaming others is foundational for living and leading well.

The shape of The Mood Curve is a reality for us to acknowledge and navigate as effectively as possible.

Joey and Kylie discuss the surprising challenges that come with trying to name reality. There are so many competing voices, false internal narratives, and false starts we have to navigate.
