Why Does Your Business Exist? with Jimmy Mellado
"In business and leadership everybody's talking about purpose vision mission goals you know all that stuff sounds fancy, right? We know enough to know we need this stuff but what the heck is it especially purpose. This idea of purpose can feel kind of philosophical or mystical. I'm GonNa tell you though it's not guys. It's the reason you exist and if you don't have one you're screwed. From the Ramsey network, this is the entree leadership podcast where we business leaders grow themselves their teams and the Prophets I'm your host Daniel Tardy today. My guest is Jimmy Mulatto. Jimmy's been a part of a successful startup. He's an Olympic athlete and today he's the CEO of Compassion International. He leads a team of over three thousand employees and over thirty five countries. Talk about a guy who understands why you have to have direction a goal passion fire a purpose. And for Jimmy. Figuring out his purpose started at a really young age. There were some real strong themes early early in life than I immediately think back of Nicaragua. says. A little boy was born outside the United States grew up in six different countries. I'm one generation away from poverty. My mom knows what it's like to keep a dirt floor clean daughter migrant farmers on the Mexico US border, Mexican culture but my dad and her married and they were adventurer. So they move forty one times in sixty two years of marriage. And I was in six countries before celebrating my first birthday grew up and seven. So fascinating and I love the my childhood. But in in nineteen seventy, two, I was living in Nicaragua and third grade and I watched the Berlin Olympics and something happened and I said I WANNA be a part of the Olympic movement and that started you know sixteen years of training and working and dedicating myself to getting just developing the skill, the craft, and all these different events was a generalist I wasn't a specialist I just loved all the events and the decathlon fit me. Purpose that you had loved to be a part of the Olympics that drove me for sixteen years until seeing that that vision realized and that's just one area and purpose can emerge in different areas of life. You have an epiphany have calling you have a transformative moment or something traumatic happens, and then all sudden this energy inside of you wells up you wanNA make a difference. You want to make an impact somewhere. That's the birth. Of purpose it could be purpose for life. Yeah. But everybody's looking for purpose, but it could be purpose for. An organization every organizations dying to have real purpose defined it. You know a lot of times purpose. I know in my story a lot a lot of businesses we work with it starts out as as something closer to survival or just pay the bills. You know you're not really thinking about this big impact. You'RE GONNA make on the universe it's almost like, yeah, that's for smart people. I just got to get this thing off the ground. Is it always that way or the big organizations that really make a difference do they know from the beginning like this is why they're gonNA EXIST Well I mean I don't know for certain but from my experience, it's always been that way for me. When you're starting something, it's fragile. It's not defined. It's just got energy and you don't know where that energy is actually going to go my first year leading a startup organization the Willow Creek Association, which is a training leadership training organization that was started in thousand ninety two when I was a part of that as a six employees, we lost a quarter million dollars at first. Year and our very existence was threatened. So our immediate like right here purpose was survive another year survive another day survive another payroll. That's the real visceral reality of startups and and they're all consuming. But that more closer in purpose it really does always have to be in the context of a longer longer-term purpose and I will say this it's not always clear. It's not always clear what that longer term purposes when you're a startup situation, you've got some that created there was the sense. That hey, we want to help churches thrive. So the Willow Creek Association got created but then how does that look? What's the priority? What's the focus? What's the strategy? How are we gonNA do that and how are we going to do that in a sustainable way? So all those questions get answered it takes time to answer them and in the meantime you gotta survive. Yes. It seems like you're saying it's not an exercise you do at a retreat it's more a process that you. Refine. As you're figuring out what you're about and you're experimenting with the marketplace Senate, it's evolving to some degree. Absolutely no doubt about it. Net actual real life experience is speaking into how that purpose will get crystallized and become clear over time and it will if you keep pursuing it,

The Future of Education
"As students. Head back to classrooms and other countries schools are adapting in order to keep students safe in Taiwan. For example there are now plastic partitions around the desks of elementary school students during lunch the Australian government has asked more vulnerable staffers in their schools to work from home. If possible in Denmark Cafeterias are disappearing and students now eating their classrooms to avoid large gatherings. Now it's the United States turn to determine what must be done to open school safely. My colleague Evan. Mcmorris Doro has been covering the impact of the corona virus pandemic on the United States educational system. I talked with him about how and win students from pre K. To College Michael. Back to classrooms are people processing this the way that you'd expect or are they not believing that this is necessary. What are you hearing well? One of the wildest things about this whole time has been just how quickly that change had to happen so you know you think back to March. We're having a normal school year. But everything changed just so quickly. The best way I can think about describing it actually came from Lily Eskillson Garcia. Who's the president of the NEA? Which is the largest teacher's Union the United States? We're in the middle of tried to find the right metaphor. A lot of teachers have said. We're building the airplane. Well it's going down the runway. Another teacher said Oh. It's bigger than that. We're apollo thirteen. We're Houston and we have a problem and our kids are on that space ship with their parents. Isolated the efforts that go into a successful school. You're already massive. Right like the Moonshot we gotta get a crew to the moon and get them back but what happened. In this case was something went wrong along the way and actually made the job harder because all of a sudden it's not apollo eleven now it's apollo thirteen in which everything breaks down and then you have to use only the tools inside people's lives in their home lives to get education done. We think about that scene in the movie where they dumped that stuff on the conference table. Okay here's all the tubes and stuff and they have on the ship of kids. Listen we gotta find a way to make this fit into the whole for this using nothing but that well this is what they're talking about when it comes education all you have is the technology type people's houses. It's a very different kind of teaching two very different kind of education but the schools themselves in terms of doing what we count on schools to do. They were not prepared for this. Did you get any sense Evan? That they're starting to think about the fall right now. We hear about states reopening obviously all over the country and at the same time we hear. Maybe there's going to be another wave or this isn't going to really go away. Is the general sort of idea that schools will be back. Open the fall. Or what are you hearing? Well the difficulty for schools difficulty facing a lot of people which is that they have to take a long time to plan to. They're going to do next but we don't know what's going to happen next. So at baseline level. I can say this there will be schools open in the fall from the K. Through twelve level into the college level. What that looks like. We're not totally clear on few years ago for sixty minutes. I did this piece about the Khan Academy and they were making the case. I remember this years ago that There could be advantages to online learning. Are there advantages that this type of learning offers over bricks and mortar when we went to a full online system? What we learned was that we had problems with things like the education. Gap Education gathered already. Exists became much much more broad. I spoke to a teacher in. La Named Gannon's four. She can't even take attendance. Absence rates are high. We're dealing with it. The things we're dealing with some students whose parents still have to go to work and so being the oldest because I teach high school so a lot of them are having to take care of younger siblings. We do everything we can. We send emails and make phone calls and things like that so I think that we are definitely going to have a learning gap. We're going to see it in the next few years. We're going to have lower test scores. I think it's inevitable as part of your reporting if you've been talking to the students themselves I mean I'm I'm wondering what? How are they reacting to this adapting to this? The students are stressed out. We're hearing that from teachers. We're hearing that from parents and I think in my own conversation with the students themselves. I felt that same thing. There is an excitement. I think about something new at first as you've gone along with this thing you found that distresses just they? They want to go back to traditional school. I've not yet met a student who was like man. I would love to do school from my parents basement for the rest of my life. That's not something that I've heard. I think that that reflects my my kids attitudes as well although I will tell you. It's Funny Evan. Maybe not surprising when this first started. I said we're still going to maintain a schedule. You'RE GONNA GET UP. You'RE GONNA shower. You'RE GONNA brush your teeth. You know the basic stuff and now if they can roll out of bed and get to their laptop in time. It's it's sometimes asking to WanNa work in our sweatpants. They can definitely go to school. Sweatpants right one. One thing that we are seeing is is that some schools are reopening You know in Montana for example and I'm wondering how are they approaching it? What are they doing there? Are there lessons? I guess for for the rest of the country because Montana is a state very different from more populous states. They had these really small schools in these really small school districts. One of them is Willow Creek School. Which is has sixty kids in it. It's a town of two hundred and fifty people about and sixty kids. The Superintendent and the principle of Willow Creek is named Bonnie Lower and what she described was the school day. Very different than what we're used to. We have six foot distant marks on the playground so that they can play games at recess and save six feet away from each other and we will alternate our bell schedule so that kids are not in the hallways at the same time. Common areas are being disinfected regularly. Every classroom has hand sanitizer wipes teachers have masks. So if they're in a student's bubble they put the mass on. They'll there's a lot of precautions. Bathrooms will be used one at a time. We're ready to get back to normal as normal as we can and even the arrival school is very different so they've had to reduce bus schedule so a lot of parents are dropping their kids off and then once the kids get to school are led into the building by an adult one by one and before they go in their temperature is taken. There's no more luncheon cafeterias so they are in the building but the school day looks very very different and these are the kind of things that we may see in schools across the country when they reopened. This is the challenge. The challenge is how to try to do social distancing in something that was never designed for that. We've all been forced to evaluate risk differently. I mean the truth is that we all take risks on a daily basis. Getting in a car and driving is one of the riskiest things that we typically do. And there's a lot of people who say well a kick ball and then somebody touched that I touched it with my hands and then I touched my eyes. My nose my mouth something like that. What are the chances of me really getting infected? And it's still very hard. I think for for public health officials to answer that question but I think what they'll typically come back to is at the answer is that the risk is low but it's not zero. I spoke with a rising college freshman from Minnesota who are trying to plan on what schools he was. GonNa go to and the college campuses are out there right now advertising. Look we're going to reopen. We don't know how we're going to try to make say we're GONNA change the way dorms work classes. Whatever what they really have to try to convince people that they can create a safe environment. I asked this kid. This is an eighteen year old kid. I said look if they open a college campus right now would you go and he said no right now. I would not maybe in August. Maybe if I could be convinced that things were safe but right now I'm not ready to go. So there's there's a difference in how people take that risk and feel about the risk factors and feel about how things are going on that. Maybe you have a situation where these elementary school students in Montana. Their parents are feeling like look. This is a worthy risk. Will take you know. We'll see how it goes but doesn't work. We'll just shut things down again and it's not that big a deal and on

"willow creek" Discussed on Relevant Podcast
"Did lots dawn and wouldn't let go. Well, it worked bitten. It. I heard a lot of bridges with friends, particularly like random does from high school. I haven't talked to you since graduation when I message them out of the blue seen if they're interested. Going back to high school. Let something that I saw on Twitter regarding all of this is where it's all of us addressing. I would like you guys Stotts on this. Is that the the impression that there could be a meet more muted response to this because in so many ways, willow creek. Bill and Lyn, and Shana our our guys, they're extremely well respected a group of people who we all have a lot of love foreign. And obviously the conversation around this has been fraught with a little more complication than it is with somebody like Harvey Weinstein or something like that. I think that it's a, I, I understand. I understand that. I think that's a really fair. Fair temptation for people, especially pastors people at the platform, people with a big voice and accountability doesn't mean anything if it's not if it doesn't work when it's your guy and for a long time l. has been our guy and many members of the family have been involved with relevant and not just relevant, but a lot of different Christian platforms. And I hope and my prayer is that we will pay that. We will be that the victims of people who have been hurt by her by him, credibly, credibly, accused of hurting them will take precedent over protecting a powerful man. And I think it's also important to remember that what God did through willow for the last forty years. God did through willow like that is still every good thing that came from that church. All of us are screw ups, and God uses us right, and he is used that. Church and that family and no matter where this ends up. We can still thank God for the international impact that will will create community churches had on people, a faith in people who aren't faith. You know. It's too late for them to to handle this in in a way that could that could really bring. It might be, I think I think I think the damage is definitely on. Do you can't undo. The women liars. Please hear me. Please hear me on that. I'm not saying that they could mitigate or or the vacant erase that, but but I would like to see. Some ownership of what happened because there's not gonna be. I saw, quote yesterday in yellow, forgive me. I forget who actually said it, but it it run. Really. It wasn't regards to this, but it runs very true that there is a bet note. No truth, no matter how damaging is as painful as ally. And I think that in this case, the truth is very, very damaging, but it's not as damaging as as as owning up as not owning up to what happy. I think you're right in that like it's never too late to start doing the right thing. Second, undo the things she did wrong, but a concert really prevent, you know, further heart and this is an opportunity to start doing things right. Hopefully there's two, there's two ways to learn something. Somebody showing you what to do and then seeing what not to do and, and hopefully, frankly, given their global position and leadership in the in the body of Christ and the influence. Creek has hopefully the good that could come of this is in other instances at churches and Chris organizations or just in general, we can look at it doesn't pay to like know, belittle the accusation. We need to. We need a lead boldly and humility. We need to assume the, you know, like start with listening to the victims and not preferencing or preferring the people in power. We need to learn from this. Like if if willow goes down it or not, like we need to learn from this and this call for the raise a question to you guys because so many of our friends who listen our in our age bracket that are pastors, right? So they're late twenties to mid thirties and then Cameron. So my question to you all is, what would you guys what's piece of advice that 'cause none of us are experts and none of us are totally on the inside, but take like two minutes and say, what would you say to young pastors they can learn from watching this. Happening at willow, what can they learn to protect themselves and their families?.

"willow creek" Discussed on Halfway There | Christian Testimonies | Spiritual Formation, Growth, and Personal Experiences with God
"I remember I had a inexperienced once at willow creek when I was doing the weekend services where we are doing this really elaborate performance thing, and I thought it was really beautiful and really holy, but it took like twenty paid fulltime. Technical artists and musicians. And I remember thinking like, are we accidents communicating to the community that you can't do this without us? So you if you wanna worship or connect with God, you need to come back every Sunday for the professionals to lead you in this huge experience at thought, man, how beautiful would would, would it be if we could communicate the opposite, which is God? His always with you. Let us teach you a few ways that you can connect with God here, of course, but Also Tuesday afternoon at lunch, and then Thursday night when you're putting your kids to bed. And then Friday morning when you're driving and you're really stressed out about the day of work or you know, whatever. So we really wanted to be a more empowering gymnasium than a. Then a more of a thing you observe? Yeah, yeah. I find that so attractive because I've had that. That sense as well. You know, church, maybe a lot of people have, but you know, we, we get there and there's really two guys who who lead and Archer, the people are love them. I know the well another force and they're, they're great at what they do. But yeah, right. There's a sense of, okay, but what about how does the rest of us kind of help us bring something to this? And as I love that, you kinda found a way to do that. You had eventually to go outside of your your roots to find some of the stuff. We kind of touched on a minute ago and you kind of you call it the healthy diet for a spiritual journey. I think that's what a, what a great metaphor. Your wife came up with that, you said? Yeah. Yeah, that was my wife, which is so so great. Tell us about why like we need to diversify our experience a little bit. Oh, man. Yeah, I think her language trying to tell her why doing all this liturgical stuff on Sundays and she didn't. She didn't choose. Why are you doing all that explaining it? And finally, she said, oh, so you're, you're basically trying to serve a well balanced meal every Sunday. Yeah, and it was so brilliant. And so well said, and I just realized I was serving the same meal every seven days, and it was a good meal like the four pop songs and a him. It's a good meal. There's nothing wrong with it. It's nutritious. It's helpful, but there's a lot doesn't have. So it's like if I only ate chicken and rice and a dessert every meal, that's a good meal. But what about greens. What about you name it? So so, yeah, so I was realize what I was trying to do is not again throw the baby out with the bathwater came. I tradition, everything sucks about it. No by tradition has a ton to offer and I'm so thankful. But what about all the other streams? And so we started to say, you know what? What is the church have to say for those of us who are in mourning right now? Core brokenhearted, yes, kind of my even Jellicoe tradition had nothing to say to people who are morning late, just believe more. Pray more right? And it's awkward ties more just like they just had there's no spirituality of of sorrow of lament, but thank God. A number of traditions have ways to engage that not the least being. NG the season of lent. And so our Catholic friends and I know wider than just Catholic friends. But I, I've learned so much from, I have a spiritual director who's a Jesuit priest, and he says, Aaron. When something is really special, you wanna prepare for it and he says, Easter resurrection. Sunday is the center of the center of our faith, and we want to celebrate with our whole hearts. And so we set aside the forty days before Easter as time to look inward a time to weep over our sin, a time to clean can do a spring cleaning in our soul so that when we get to Easter, we can raise our hands and you know, thanks to God for Jeet for raising Jesus. And again, that in some ways is such a simple idea. I just had never heard it right. And so suddenly we have this this tool, this framework called lent that.
