Tuesday, June 13 2017, Hour 1: Brad Berry joined the program to talk about the just completed Stanley Cup Playoff, Carter Rowney’s path as an undrafted free agent to becoming a Stanley Cup winner, leadership and the life of UND legend Gordon “Ginny” Christian who passed away last week in Warroad MN.
Dealing with failure is a key part of life and often defines us in a way that success does not. Listen to his four steps to overcoming failure as a person of faith.
Jon Hauser, Senior Pastor, Prairie Heights Community Church, in West Fargo joins us to talk about his recent column in the Grand Forks Herald entitled “When Jesus told his disciples they were to be salt, light”
A delightful conversation with an insightful thinker and a wonderful writer. “Leadership” becomes a large part of the discussion when we talk about the following paragraph from the article: “I am 100 percent convinced the greatest need in North Dakota is not social systems, political policy, economic escalation in oil or commodity pricing, or even educational excellence. While each of these is important, the greatest need in North Dakota is Godly, effective leaders grounded in and humbly following our Creator.”
Mike Berg talks housing, education, teacher’s unions, the political power of teachers in a community, explains the concept behind “tenure,” charter schools vs public schools and choice in education, innovation in public education, how the change in the composition and lifestyle of the “family” has forced schools to change, leadership in the UND Athletic Department, political compromise, leadership expectations in different organizations and the media.
This is the “no kidding” FIRST conversation Mike Berg and I have ever had on these issues. Listen to an extremely broad and interesting conversation with a man who has spent his entire life educating and leading in his community.
Mike has very definite things to say about public education and school choice. A GREAT discussion with articulate, measured and strong opinions. GREAT STUFF!
GREG LOTYSZ joins the program to provide his compassionate view of life as we talk about budget cuts, UND Athletic Budgets, where Pat Sweeney is and crosswalks.
