The Leadership Journey Podcast: Barry Forde (part 2)
Barry Forde is back on the podcast this week. Barry is the Anglican and Methodist chaplain at Queen’s University in Belfast. If you missed the first part of the conversation with Barry, you can catch up here.
For your reflection:
1 – What do you make of the idea that a leader is ‘someone with a magnet in their heart and a compass in their head’? How important is it for a leader to be ‘personable’, as Barry describes it?
2 – ‘Hold the present responsibly and the future lightly’: how do you respond to Barry’s idea of being alive to opportunities in the present rather than attempting to anticipate 5 years hence?
- The series of talks on leadership by Eugene Peterson can be purchased here, and
- Here is more information about the book on Irish preaching to which Barry has contributed a chapter.
The podcast will be taking a few weeks off, but we plan to be back in August.
