As an added bonus, David refers to scenes from well known movies to illustrate the leadership principles he describes.
- Having a note pad, an open mind, and an open Bible would come in handy as you take this course!
Think like Jesus Lead like Moses challenges us to look to two of the world’s most successful leaders to see how they guide people in the wilderness. The course provides applicable insights into well-known leadership styles by constructing a bridge between commonsense business methods and profound biblical insights. David’s transparency and honesty as he shares his own fiery and refining trials gives you a “safe place” to admit your failings and successes.
Based on his book, Think Like Jesus, Lead Like Moses: Leadership Lessons from the Wilderness Crucible David presents 10 video lessons in which he discusses principles of Godly leadership based on a study of the life of Moses. In a the section, Principle Reflections, you are presented with a "point to ponder" and questions for reflection that you can use either in private or group study.
- This course is a call to get out of the way, to get humble and to turn the world upside down as we learn to think like Jesus, lead like Moses. If you’re up for that sort of adventure, then this course is for you.
In this lesson, David introduces himself, describes the course, and explains how it came about.
In this lesson, I provide a list of the ten principles you can reference all in one place. I also share a webpage you can access to learn about the movie scenes I've selected to illustrate each leadership principle.
In this first lesson, David introduces the first of the ten principles of leadership. He references two movies, The Ten Commandments, and the Prince of Egypt, to help connect this simple idea: What does it take to cause you to give up on trusting in your own power, so that you’re able to trust in the power of God?
In this lesson, David considers that transformation that took place in how Moses saw himself, and how everyone changed their view of him. Using the movie, It’s A Wonderful Life, David talks about how we must go through a crisis of confidence in order to be committed to God’s plan for our life.
In this third lesson, David considers how truly effective leaders get things done. Using the movie, Spartacus, to illustrate some of the issues Moses faced, he examines the tension between bestowing your authority on others to enable them to do the work, vs. the temptation to “hoard” your power.
In looking at the fifth principle, David examines how Moses’ father-in-law, Jethro, encourages him to delegate the work he’s doing. To help illustrate the importance of making sure that the people’s interests, not the leader’s ego, is most important, he uses the movie “Armageddon” to demonstrate why we need to delegate tasks to competent people.
In Principle 6, David explores how Moses edified others around him, praising them for their contribution to the efforts of the Children of Israel. Using the movie, Braveheart, he demonstrates that even great leaders need to know when to step aside to elevate others for the good of the cause one is working for.
In Principle 7, David looks at how leaders mold their followers, and how followers shape their leaders. Moses had to work with people, but the people also had to work with Moses. This may mean letting others defend you when your followers speak ill of you. To illustrate this principle, the movie, Dave, is used.
In presenting the eighth principle, David considers how Moses invested himself in his protégé, Joshua. To illustrate how we infect others with our passion and energy to accomplish a vision long after we’re gone, David makes reference to the movie, Kingdom of Heaven.
In Principle 9, David examines how Moses dealt with the temptation of allowing fame and success to go to his head. To illustrate how even Godly people can act in their own self interest while claiming to be doing God’s will, the movie, “The Messenger,” about the life of Joan of Arc, is used.
Point to Ponder: Have you ever been confronted with the reality that your own strength and power was not sufficient to see you through your time of trial?
