You are going to LOVE this conversation with Mark P. Fisher on Inspiring Growth as a leader!

If you like The Rainmaker Fundraising Podcast, you can thank Mark. He’s the person who inspired me to launch this podcast!

I first met Mark when he and his team led the national marketing effort for the Paramount Pictures movie, Same Kind of Different As Me, and we worked together to craft a Red Carpet Event strategy to market this film nationally in support of Gospel Rescue Missions through a partnership with City Gate Network.

In this episode, Mark and I covered a ton of ground in a very candid conversation about his personal leadership journey.

Here are some of the key points we hit in this discussion:

  1. Mark’s personal story of going 100+ miles per hour as a leader until he hit a wall…and it nearly killed him. He talks about how this experience helped him reset his priorities and focus, and create Inspiring Growth, his life’s calling.
  2. The importance of caring for yourself as a leader in order to allow you to truly serve those you lead.
  3. The power of kindness, and how it helps you lead well.
  4. The importance of resilient thinking, and how that allows you to pick up  the pieces and move on after failure or setbacks.
  5. As a leader, why you should strive to believe the best about people, and how that can radically change the culture in your organization.
  6. How to use a post mortem or after action review to overcome failure and create learning that will move your organization forward in a healthy way, even when a major project or initiative doesn’t turn out the way you’d hoped.
