Episode 12: Personal Change

 

 

The Lead.Travel.Pray. team was excited to interview our first guest on this twelfth episode of this podcast we started exactly one year ago. Dale Kreienkamp, Author of How Long, O Lord, How Long? A Book of Devotions for the Unemployed & Those Who Love Him, joined us to talk about personal change, specifically how faith can guide us through things like unemployment.

Dale Kreienkamp is a Human Resources professional of 40 years who has served as an executive in the healthcare industry and as head of a successful consulting practice.  Dale has also served as a volunteer leader on numerous boards of directors, as well as in his home church.  Dale has experienced a personal journey of unemployment twice when, each time, his positions were eliminated in organizational restructuring. These personal experiences created a desire within him to help others impacted by unemployment through inspirational devotions.

  • Ask for feedback by writing “What is something that might be getting in the way of me [fill in the blank with your development goal]?” on the front of a notecard.  Have your peer group respond with anonymous feedback on the back of that notecard. This feedback will be a major gift for your development.

Missed flights, sick relatives that we are rushing to be near, turbulence, close connections, lost bags….we have experienced these things multiple times and more. Each leads to stress and concern, but we know many people to are anxious just at the idea of travel itself so that is our focus of this tip.

Mostly we use prayer and meditation to get to a calmer state. Yoga and essential oils are also becoming part of our occasion routines. What do you find makes you most calm?

Here’s some good advice we found to pass on to you:
