Welcome to the Formation Digest with J.L. Tanner
For leaders compelled to become healthier humans and grow healthier organizations.
Welcome to the Formation Digest, a publication for leaders compelled by their faith to become healthier humans and grow healthier communities.
These emails will all be rooted in a some core beliefs, which will be the foundation for our explorations. I’ll include insights from other voices I’m listening to. I’ll also share epiphanies I’m having in my own experiences and formation. Here are a few of the core beliefs to get us started:
Every organizational strength and weakness is rooted in the heart of its leaders.
Your organization and community will never be healthier than you are as a leader.
If you’re not intentionally being formed, you’re accidentally being deformed.
My hope is that this publication becomes part of your intentional formation. My goal is that you’ll discover more truth that helps you know yourself to lead yourself to lead your communities into a more meaningful life.
Here are a few ways to optimize your experience:
If you were sent here by a friend, subscribe to the Formation Digest. Join this conversation with other leaders dedicated to becoming fully human again. There’s a free version where I’ll deliver snackable content. For those who want to also get additional content with deeper insights, comment with other subscribers, and get early and exclusive access to conversations with me and my friends, there’s a paid option that also helps fuel my work.
