Anxiety often gets in the way of a pastor’s ability to be an effective leader. It hijacks our Emotional Intelligence by causing us to become very self-conscious. We begin fixating on anxiety rather than the challenge or opportunity at hand. We make decisions based on what we think will reduce our anxiety rather than leading well. And to compound things even more, the current crisis exacerbates anxiety for everyone.
The most important resource a leader, including a pastor, brings in any moment is being a non-anxious person. That is more important than your skills, your ability to strategize and your ability to problem solve. Yet, a lot of pastors and leaders allow anxiety to undermine their capacity to lead. This seminar will help you get a better handle on how to manage your anxiety so that you are a more effective Christ follower and leader. Even your family will benefit!
You’ll learn things like . . .
The 5 types of anxiety.
Why chronic anxiety takes such a toll.
Identify where anxiety begins for you physiologically and how to intervene.
Identify 2 or 3 of your own unique triggers and how to flip the power dynamic.
Learn how anxiety competes with God for our attention and how God displaces our anxiety with presence.
How ‘differentiation of self’ can deescalate anxiety.
If you can’t make the date, no problem, it will be available on demand after the live event.
The webinar is on Thursday, June 4th at 11:30 a.m. EST. $28/webinar ticket.

Developing EQ for Performance
Our emotional intelligence (EQ) informs every decision we make in our personal and professional lives and has a profound impact on our ability to lead others effectively. For most of us, these skills were developed in an emotionally nurturing home. However, in light of today’s crisis, stress fractures are beginning to emerge that will negatively impact organizations if they go untreated. We have a choice: either ignore the pain associated with the hidden trauma or do something to address these issues.
In this webinar, we’ll examine some key concepts to get you started. Based on years of experience in assessing thousands of individuals, we’ll describe why EQ affects our ability to lead well, provide some tips for success, and answer some critical questions like:
Why is it so challenging to change?
What does the latest research say?
Why is it important?
What does the Bible say about EQ?
What are concrete ways to monitor EQ?
How do I begin to develop EQ?
Where do I look for resources?
The presentation will take about 30 minutes, followed by 30 minutes for Q&A. The number of attendees will be limited by the size of the zoom software (100).
By Doug Talley Notice: The following article is longer than usual. Hopefully, it will be helpful enough that you’ll be glad it is. “So, how are you feeling?” I think I’ve asked pastors that a thousand times over the last nine weeks. I’m starting to hear more and more pastors say they are feeling blah, unmotivated, fatigued, low...
By Doug Talley I’m tired of the COVID-19 crisis! I’m tired of hearing about people I know (or friends and family of people I know) catching the virus, struggling for their lives, and even dying. I’m tired of friends and family members having to say goodbye to loved ones from a distance. I’m tired of my new routine...
“Becoming a covenant church with IM has been one of the best decisions our church has made in terms of getting ourselves 'on mission'. The testing, recommendations, coaching have been invaluable in us moving towards creating a new life cycle. We thank God for pushing us to take these steps with IM."
“The ordination process was very beneficial and fulfilling."
“What I loved about the ordination process through Indiana Ministries was that I was given a cohort of people to process and grow with while knowing that in the end I would be equipped and supported by an even larger team of people."
