What Is It Like To Be In Relationship With Me? Ep. 2

What Is It Like To Be In Relationship With Me? Ep. 2

October 14, 2021

Lance Wigton and Beth Keop are back – and in this episode, they break down what it looks like when our Core Values are challenged. Lance shares his experience with doing the homework Beth had assigned during Ep. 1 – asking the people around him what they believed his values were. He did not get the response he expected.

 

Beth debriefs the situation with Lance and helps him investigate his own actions and impulses to determine the root emotion he was experiencing, for the purpose of helping him discover his Core Values.

 

Some of the topics addressed in this episode are:

 

  • What does it mean if I feel bad?

 

  • What does it look like to be curious about my emotions?

 

  • How do I know the difference between a thought and an emotion?

 

  • Why is it important to identify my emotions?

 

Beth walks us through a visual and shows us how to look at a prompting event in our life and determine the action we wanted to take in response to it, which will lead us to the primary emotion we were experiencing. This process will help us discover the core value that is being blocked or attacked.

 

Having this information can help us rein in some of our overblown emotional responses to the situations around us, which could be a pivotal tool to help us increase self-awareness and raise our Emotional Intelligence level towards both ourselves and those around us.

This week on the Real for Life podcast Lance Wigton is joined by long time Real Life member Beth Keop, who is a Clinical Supervisor for a Community Mental Health Provider in North Idaho. 

Beth has led Emotional Intelligence workshops for our Real Life Staff and for members in our Real Life Classes venue, and today she is talking through some of the information from her training.

Leadership is influencing people to follow you. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to lead people. In order for people to follow us, we need to have an emotional understanding of ourselves and of others.

As disciples and ambassadors for Jesus, the ability to engage with others and become aware of their emotional state is an important component of our knowledge and ability to reach them. It will help us not only to determine what questions to ask others to help us identify their needs, it can also bring about an awareness of own emotional reflexes and filters so that we can ensure they don't get in the way.

 

Some of things Lance and Beth discuss include:

  • What is Emotional Intelligence?
  • Why is your EI more important in leadership than your IQ?
  • How do emotions motivate behavior?
  • Why Self Awareness is the cornerstone of EI.
  • Why trust and vulnerability are key.
  • How do guilt and shame contribute to Self-Awareness?

We hope you find this session enlightening and helpful, and we encourage you to subscribe to this podcast so that you don't miss new episodes!

How To Engage With Other Cultures Without Putting Your Foot In Your Mouth..

May 27, 2021

In this episode of the Real For Life podcast, Lance Wigton speaks with Real Life's International Discipleship Team members Dave Campbell and Paul Byrns. They discuss the ins and outs of engaging in conversation and relationship with people from a culture that is different from your own.

This is an important ability when we are trying to share Christ with others through relationship. Some of the things they address are:

  • How do we break down barriers and allow trust and transparency to take place?
  • How do we become familiar with cultural differences that may exist?
  • How do we move past awkward moments when they come up?
  • Where do we encounter different cultures without leaving the country?
  • How do we look at those around us every day with the same grace we have towards other cultures?
  • What cultural differences might we run into in our small groups?

Be sure to watch all the way to the end as Lance tries to stump these world travelers with a game of Name That Place!

Waking up from the American Dream: Podcast Ep 30 – Jim Putman

September 19, 2020

Jim Putman is back from his summer break, and he is talking today with Lance Wigton about some of the things he learned in his time away. Their discussion includes the topic of how a disciple of Jesus should respond to the crises and situations that have arisen around us during this season. How do you view our country (America) and what role do you believe it plays in God's plan for believers? What part does patriotism play in your life, and how much do you depend on your dream and vision for what America should look like? This is an important discussion that comes at a time when America's leaders are making decisions and choices that could make us lose trust in "The American Dream." Jim Putman is asking: "Could that be precisely what God is asking us to do?
