In the first episode of the Messy Leadership Podcast, I decided that it was important for us to focus on a subject that impacts each of us holistically:: WORLDVIEW.
If I asked you to describe your WORLDVIEW… what words would you use to explain the way you interpret the world around you? Would you use economic or political language? Would you describe concepts related to your ethical or religious beliefs? Would you speak of morality and social responsibility? Would you express the unalienable rights of all for “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”? Would you dwell on death or your view of life after death?
WORLDVIEW is the FRAMEWORK through which we interpret the world around us. WORLDVIEW is the STORY of the world that operates at the CENTER of a person’s life.
Every person has a worldview shaped by our cultural context and personal experiences. The study of worldview is a study in PHILOSOPHY (a set of ideals) and HISTORY (a period in time).
And MESSY LEADERS tend to be the type of people who have a well-defined view of the world around them. We have reached some conclusions which allow us to be motivated to move through the MESSYNESS of life with firm conviction and captivating vision.
On this weekend where we celebrate the birth, life, and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., it is fitting that we incorporated the story of Dr. King’s Letter from Birmingham Jail.
Let’s get messy…
