Turning Off the Conversation in Your Head

From the book Leadership Coaching by Tony Stoltzfus

Have you ever had a conversation where half-way through you realized the other person wasnít really listening? Sometimes we get the feeling that others are smiling and nodding while we are talking, but their minds are on something else entirely.

Now letís turn the tables: if you feel that way sometimes when talking to others, it is likely that they sometimes feel the same lack of listening when they are talking to you! How do you become aware of it when you arenít listening well? Here are four warning signs, along with a rationale for why each one might be happening:

  • We interrupt a lot. We think our thoughts are more right or more important than the other personís.
  • We are distracted by the environment. This often happens in groups: while we are listening to one person, the other half of our attention is focused on scanning the room or looking for the person we really want to talk to.
  • There are no pauses in the conversation. Instead of fully tuning into the other person, we are using the time they are speaking to frame our reply. So as soon as theyíre finished speaking, weíre ready to jump in.

The Questions for Jesus Game makes encountering Jesus on a heart-level fun!

Questions for Jesus Poster | Guidelines for Praying Your Desire
Questions for Jesus Poster
by Tony Stoltzfus
18" x 24" print, frame not included

This poster is a great training aid for presenting Questions for Jesus material--or a perfect reminder during your devotions of how to pray your desires. There are five simple rules for asking Questions for Jesus:

  1. Ask in Faith...
    Pray in accordance with what scripture has already revealed. We don't pray, "Jesus, do you love me?" but instead, "Jesus, what do you love about me?"
  2. for Desire Fulfilled...
    We are praying for a specific desire, like love, security, peace, or recognition.
  3. in Relationship...
    Instead of asking for a thing or outcome in this world to fill our desire, we ask Jesus to fill it with himself.
  4. by a Rhema...
    The experiential, spoken word touches desires in ways the Logos (scripture) can't.
  5. from a Good God.
    He's the one who longs to fill your desires. This isn't about what you can do for him, but what he can do for you.

Praying in accordance with these five principles makes it easiest to hear God speak to you, and can transform your devotions forever!

Calling Journey Calling Timeline and Life Stage Poster
The Calling Journey Poster
by Tony Stoltzfus
Rating:

The book, The Calling Journey, fills a vital need for coaches by mapping out the progression of stages and transitions God moves us through on the road to our call. This path includes predictable mountains to scale and painful, disorienting valleys all leaders must navigate to fulfill their destiny. Each stage has a unique growth agenda and is beautifully displayed on this full-color poster. The poster depicts the timeline of the biblical character Joseph, from his early experiments with his gift of dream interpretation to his final valley of identity where he reveals himself to his brothers and saves his Father's family line.

The Calling Journey Poster is a great tool for presenters of the Mapping Your Calling Timeline Workshop (facilitator's package available at this link). It's a powerful visual aid in a classroom or workshop setting, and an exact replica of the timeline found in The Calling Journey book.
