The Role of Faith in a Successful Career

84% of people worldwide identify with an organized religion, but in business we are often taught not to discuss politics and faith. But it’s obviously very important to most of us.

Christ Memorial Lutheran Church Director of Youth Ministry Daniel Meyer joins Microsoft and ex- AT&T #sales leader Carson V. Heady for a special discussion.

The themes apply universally: servant #leadership, seeking peace and joy (in faith and life in general), and some stability in life amidst chaos and uncertainty.

In all areas of our lives – faith, personal, business – we can thrive, survive or tread water; like a stock portfolio, we can invest in each area, but cannot control the outcomes outside of the strength that can come from faith.

There are some excellent lessons from religion about how we conduct ourselves, how we treat others and how we are intentional in the moment.

Be kind to yourself and others; slow down, find the joy in moments and infuse what you are passionate about into what you do.

How has living faithfully or your religious beliefs impacted your approach to #career?
