Like a theater play, leaders have a frontstage and a backstage. The frontstage is the public world, and the backstage is the private world. An authentic story originates backstage. Clients live in a frontstage-dominated world, yet core longings such as belonging, love, empathy, significance, and safety are backstage. What roots are to a tree, the backstage is to the frontstage. It empowers and sustains a leader’s frontstage success. This workshop will apply the S.T.O.R.Y. system, which is the heart of the backstage, to assist ministry leaders and coaches in helping clients produce authenticity in their lives.

Learning Objectives

1. Describe how to live and lead from love and not for love by abiding in Jesus
2. Apply insights from positive psychology to build and deepen emotionally safe relationships vital for happiness and health
