    Crucial Conversations Series - Part 1

    This is the beginning of the Crucial Conversations series, reviewing insights from a book by the same name, Crucial Conversations. In high-stakes interactions with your boss or friend or significant other, what you say matters. There are critical moments in every one of our relationships where our words make the difference. But many times we say too much, we come across too forceful, or we say nothing at all.

    And we often believe the lie that telling the truth means losing a friend. In the first episode of this series, Dave addresses what researchers call the "Foolish Choice," the sad result of believing that the truth will cost us more than silence. If relationships are based on communication and trust, then keeping silent costs far more. Do you say what you're thinking or move on and hope it just gets better by itself? The challenge in this episode is simple: Talk about it. Don't fall for the lie that keeping quiet means keeping a friend.

    The Collective Gathering - How to Not Lose Your Way

    While the seasons change at (somewhat) predictable times in the year, our lives are in constant flux. But there are especially challenging transitions in life that can, if we're not aware, cause us to lose our way. Relocating to a new city, changing jobs or careers, getting promoted, the beginning or ending of a relationship, even self-improvement changes can throw us off course. In this episode of The Collective Podcast, Dave hosts a conversation with his friend and co-worker, Kevin Mahan, about how to keep your life on track when change begins to disappoint, discourage, and even cause you to doubt yourself altogether.

    The Collective Gathering - Performance Review

    When you work or live with someone who tries to control everything, it can be suffocating. In this episode of The Collective Podcast, Dave talks about the problem of control in our work, cautioning against the effects of forcing compliance. But it is even more destructive in our relationships and faith. The life-altering love that Jesus invites us into leaves no room for performance-based requirements. So why do we do that to ourselves?

    Jealousy - The Collective Gathering

    Ever wanted what somebody else has? When we were kids, fairness was easy to see and understand. But as we get older and more self-conscious, fairness was easily distorted into jealousy, and that's when it started to steal life from you and from me. In this episode, Dave shares four steps you can take to find jealousy's source, root it out of your heart, and keep it out of your life. Note: Message begins at 14:55.
