I believe, that when you are fully present that you have the capacity to learn something from just about anyone. It’s probably why I consider myself a life long learner, because it is just impossible to me that I could leave an encounter without a new thought or consideration.
I am, however, caught off guard when I pick up a nugget of gold that I can apply to an area of my life other than where it was intended. This past weekend is a perfect example.
Working with a growing ministry means that I am often learning about things like branding, marketing, communications, etc. It is important to have a grasp on the administrative and technical parts of the work. I attended a workshop on branding and the speaker, Faith James, was sharing about how we represent our brand. She said “You are the CEO of you! Brand yourself well.”
I was wondering how well I “brand myself” as a follower of Christ?
Do I walk in confidence of Him?
Do I speak with knowledge of Him?
Can I answer questions people ask about Him?
Am I energetic and excited about Him?
Do I represent Him will to the public?
Am I considered credible about Him?
Food for thought.
