How can we develop effective leadership skills with lasting impact?
On this episode of Flourish-Meant, host Tina Yeager sits down with leadership expert Bunni Pounds to discuss the importance of developing skills and making an impact in various areas of life. Drawing on the story of Nehemiah, they explore the power of perseverance, prayer, and identifying your unique calling. They also provide insights into politics, how to engage with young people and the value of relationships. Listen and learn how focusing on others can lead to opportunities and make a lasting impact on your life and community.
Bunni Pounds is the President of Christians Engaged, a national
non-partisan ministry dedicated to praying for the nation and
elected officials regularly, voting in every election
to impact their culture, and engage hearts in some form of civic education or engagement for the wellbeing of
America. Bunni spent over sixteen years running the campaigns of Members of Congress around Texas. In 2018 Bunni became the only person in the entire United States who gained the endorsement of Vice President Mike Pence, and out of 46 candidates became the only Texas Republican woman to make the runoff election. Bunni’s experience doesn’t just stop at politics. She has been bi-vocational and active in Christian ministry since she was 16. Bunni is a Bible teacher and motivational speaker who has authored 8 books, published worship songs, and church-planted with her husband Tim for over 10 years.
In this episode, we discuss the following points:
Bunni emphasizes the importance of researching and understanding the industry or area of interest before jumping in. Whether it's starting a business or getting involved in the government, doing your due diligence beforehand will lead to greater success.
From her experience running for Congress, Bunni learned the value of time management and perseverance. Despite facing significant opposition, she relied on her faith and prayer to push through and ultimately learned valuable lessons along the way.
3. Invest in building up others.
Bunni stresses the importance of valuing time spent with loved ones and investing in building up others. By pouring into relationships and being intentional with time, it not only opens doors for us but allows for genuine connections and opportunities for growth.
