Today I will continue my streak of productivity.

Tension makes a story interesting.  Vulnerability is what makes people interesting.  Used together and done right, we could be powerful story-tellers and have people truly relate to us.  It does take the scary step of showing our true self.  Like some Buddhist paradoxical saying, I do believe it’s through vulnerability that we become more confident.

Charlie McMahan is the pastor of SouthBrook Church, with a congregation of over 5,000 people.  I’ve always been impressed with certain pastor’s ability to lead, making old material fresh and relevant every week.  On an episode of The Learning Leader’s podcast, Charlie breaks down his process:

  1. Teaser – Start with something that’ll grab the audience.

  2. Tension – What’s the struggle? You need a conflict or else it’s just boring.

  3. Truth – This is why they came – the secret to overcome the tension.

  4. Take Home – Give them the process, the step-by-step.

  5. Together – End on a positive note, with a feeling of belonging.

Try out his process next time you give a talk or make a presentation.
