Is the Bible relevant in a secular workplace?

That’s the question that I was suddenly confronted with during a mentoring session by a VP with whom I worked closely. We were studying a book together, and I expressed that some of the principles didn’t jive completely with my Christian world view. So I was (respectfully) challenged to define what my world view would say about managing and leading in our workplace.

That’s when my blog management by God was born! For almost two years I wrote regularly about Biblical principles and how I believed they applied to leadership in the workplace. I’m retiring that blog after nearly two years of inactivity. Because I don’t want to loose some of the stuff that I wrote there, I decided to repost some of it here…

The Manager-Leader

The Executive-Leader

Lessons from Proverbs

Lessons from Leaders (Book of Judges)

    “Is the Bible still relevant in a secular workplace?” That’s an awesome question, I actually just reposted something about a similar topic: Grace as a corporate value. This was my first blog post ever (well maybe my second). Awesome stuff Dan, thanks for saving it all!(shameless plug)

      Faith in the workplace has always been important to me. I remember a time when I literally bumped into a co-worker in a Christian bookstore, and neither of us had figured the other one to be the ‘kind of person’ that would shop there. We both saw that as a problem. From that day forward, I knew that my spirituality/faith had to be at the center of who I was… ESPECIALLY in the workplace.

      Thanks for dropping the link! It’s an important part of the conversation!
