Today’s guest is Terry Smith, the lead pastor of The Life Christian Church (TLCC), a nondenominational faith community known for its diversity and robust leadership culture. Terry is the co-founder of the New York City Leadership Center, a speaker, and an author. He is a firm advocate for incorporating hospitality into leadership.
The theme of this week’s episode is hospitality. When we say hospitality, we don’t mean how to set a table; it’s about creating a genuinely welcoming climate in an organization. When you create an environment that is truly welcoming to a diverse group of people, you have amazing potential to combat the difficulties of the world today.
You’ll hear Terry and Kevin Monroe talk about:
- How hospitality combats polarization.
- The five welcomes of hospitable leadership.
- Hospitality and belonging.
- How hospitality intersects with diversification and inclusivity.
- What it takes to be hospitable.
