Allen Hunt's Blog
Where Real Life and Faith Come Together
A little good fortune this week. By happenstance, I got the opportunity to sit down and talk with Ken Blanchard. The author of The One Minute Manager, and one of the pre-eminent gurus on leadership in American business. I noticed his title at the Blanchard Companies. He is the CSO: Chief Spiritual Officer. Never heard of that before. So I asked him about it. In his company of 300+ employees, Ken focuses on doing three things as the leader. 1) Praying - and encouraging his employees to pray. He gives them persons and items to pray for so that the entire team is focused on the same prayer needs. 2) Praise - Ken praises members of his team over and over for the things they are doing right. Choosing to focus on things going well rather than the things they may be doing wrong. People never get tired of hearing what they are doing well and being reinforced for it. 3) Inspiration - Each day, Ken sends an email with something that inspired him to the entire organizational team. Fascinating guy. Became a follower of Jesus at age 48 after the success of his One Minute Manager (more than 13MM copies sold). I will share excerpts of our conversation on the show this weekend. Listen to the entire conversation here.
What's Allen Up To?
The Allen Hunt Show is about faith and life, plain and simple. According to a Gallup Poll in May of 2005, 85% of Americans consider their faith important or fairly important to their lives. Yet there is a gap on the talk radio airwaves that examines where faith and life come together. This show fills that gap like nothing currently on the radio. This is not one more political talk show, nor is it another faith-based counseling show because ultimately, life is not about what is right or left, but about what is right and wrong. The Allen Hunt Show takes on real life issues, with real life people, to see how faith can have a real impact. Join us on Saturdays from 9-12 PM and Sundays from 6-9 PM. Blessings!
