Is Your Ego in the Way of Receiving Compliments?
How did you respond the last time someone gave you a compliment? Did you respond with a simple, "Thank You!" If not then this conversation is for you.  In today's coaching conversation, we explore the tension that exists for leaders to receive praise. Your executive presence matters to your team and when you are unable to accept their compliments it is indirectly affecting your ability to give genuine praise back to your team.

The Biggest Lie to Overcoming Change and Transformation
You are living the exact life that you have created. Period. Stop blaming everyone else for your life and circumstances. We live in a "do it to me, do-it-for-me, but don't make me do it" culture. This belief is keeping many people back from making meaningful change and transformation. In this episode, I share why the path of suffering is the path to transformation.  What beliefs are you holding on to that are no longer serving you? What decisions do you need to make to get to your desired destination? How much are you willing to suffer to experience long-term transformation? What needs to shift in you to overcome the "do it to me, do-it-for-me, but don't make me do it" mindset? Come join the Champions Circle and get on a path of growth and encouragement with like-minded Kingdom men.

Jordan Raynor - Redeeming Your Time, Marriage Date Ideas, and Your Influence with Your Children
Join the conversation as Lantz Howard sits down and asks him eight questions about his marriage, leadership, life, and how he desires to learn how to play as a spiritual practice. Your life will be enriched by getting Jordan's book Redeeming Your Time and get a copy of his latest children's book at  Here are the eight questions we explored together:  One of the greatest adventures we are on is to love, serve, and lead our spouse in meaningful ways. Tell us about a recent date and how that reveals more about your life? After a great date with your spouse and you need to work off the extra food you consumed and the desert, what is your preferred style of workout and what does that say about your leadership? It seems everyone wants to talk about winning but rarely do we want to talk about the process that got us to the winning season of life. One of the complexities of life is learning to embrace suffering and how suffering can refine the character that helps us grow endurance and how that shapes our hope and Kingdom ambition. Can you share about one of your suffering moments and how that has defined you and points to your desire, design, and destiny? Every ambitious leader has dreams and fears. What are your secret fears? And how does it hold you back? When you are out of alignment with Jesus, how do you know? What spiritual practices help get you back into alignment? God's desire is that we live fully alive and yet we know that tension that there is one seeking to kill, steal, and destroy. What are three resources that have helped you in your marriage and/or business embrace being fully alive? Tell us about what has your focus, passion, and attention right now? Why should it be ours? Everyone is moving forward. What are your secret dreams? If that becomes true what story would you share three years from now about how that champions hope? --  -- Overcome your shadow self and stop playing small.

The Ache of the Modern Man and Recovering an Enchanted Faith with Dr. Richard Beck
My guest today is the author of numerous books and a professor at Abilene Christian University. His recent work titled, "Hunting Magic Eels: Recovering an Enchanted Faith in a Skeptical Age" is about exploring this ache many of us feel and how to become alive in the adventure of following God.  "We live in a secular age, a world dominated by science and technology. Increasing numbers of us don't believe in God anymore. We don't expect miracles. We've grown up and left those fairytales behind, culturally and personally. Yet five hundred years ago the world was very much enchanted. It was a world where God existed and the devil was real. It was a world full of angels and demons. It was a world of holy wells and magical eels. But since the Protestant Reformation and the beginning of the Enlightenment, the world, in the West at least, has become increasingly disenchanted."

How You Can Change Your World 14 Minutes at a Time with Chris Field Founder of
Are you looking for your confidence and clarity to do the things that you value the most? Are you struggling to find time or money to show up and make a difference? Chris Field and Lantz Howard dive into a conversation about changing your world and why we need to see failure as an opportunity. Chris is the Founder of and author of the new book A Billion Hours of Good: How to Change Your World 14 Minutes at a Time. Chris was adrift, depressed, and gaining weight when he realized that he was not living in alignment with his best gifts. Since that time Chris and Mercy Project have rescued and reintegrated 181 child slaves from Ghana, Africa. Chris debunks the myth about why we don't give up our time and money more often in order to show up in the world and make a difference. Grab a copy of the book and begin to clarify your best YES so you can say no to the noise and gluttony that modern life offers. You are a champion and others need your presence to offer hope.  "A billion hours is equivalent to 114,000 years. That's how much good we're going to do together. Just 14 minutes at a time. You don't need more money, or time, or even another election cycle to bring transformational change to your community. What you need is to believe that daily microdoses of good over years and years can create a great return. Stop waiting for the big change moment and seize the good that you can do today. Join Chris in pledging 1 percent of your time (14 minutes a day) to make the world a better place. Learn how to solve old problems in new ways, and walk with Chris as he shows you how he started Mercy Project-a nonprofit committed to ending child trafficking in Ghana. See how compassion and care can serve as rocket fuel for deep courage and untapped creativity. Our responsibility in a world filled with suffering is to care, show up, and act. Not once, not twice, but a little bit every day for the rest of our lives. Accept this invitation and join a global movement for extraordinary good. Impossible alone. Transformational together." Wow. This book came at just the right time for me. In fact, it is probably just the right time for our world. I found myself smiling and nodding as I quickly turned page after page. Chris Field inspires through excellent story-telling but also provides a practical blueprint for us all to follow to create A Billion Hours of Good 14 minutes at a time. I want to share this book with everyone. ―Terri Dorsey, Director of Executive Development, Boys & Girls Clubs of America In A Billion Hours of Good, Chris pilots a metaphorical lawnmower. He clears a path by anticipating excuses and mowing them over. Chris started with my heart and then nimbly made his way into the part of my brain that too easily generates retorts-and in that very spot he worked his magic. Using pragmatism and relatable stories, Chris showed me I am capable of doing hard things, motivated me to do hard things, and helped me believe in my ability to make a meaningful impact in the world-in just 14 minutes a day. ―Corey Oliver, Former Senior HR leader at Nike and Deloitte -- You can find out more about Lantz Howard at and schedule your free Ask Lantz Anything at
