One of the most powerful tools we have for reproducing leaders are the words we say. In this podcast from Exponential East 2016, pastor and author Jon Ferguson looks at some practical tools to help you make the most of every leadership conversation–reminding us that leadership development begins with an “I see in you” conversation–both what I see in you right now, and what I see you becoming (your future). Drawing from conversations in Scripture, Ferguson illustrates the transformative power of words to identify, empower and reproduce leaders.
Jon is a familiar voice at Exponential conferences. At Exponential East 2017, he’ll be coming alongside church leaders and drawing from his experience to lead workshop sessions focusing on reproducing and church planting.
