In this episode Jo talks leadership behind the scenes with Vivian Mabuni, an Asian-American leader. They discuss cultural clashes in life and leadership, the differences between western and eastern styles of leadership, struggling against ‘phantom’ leaders, and the behind-the-scenes things that God has used to develop character in Vivian’s life - from motherhood to cancer. Find out how Vivian finds spaces to process cultural differences in leadership; how cancer helped her embrace community and what she believes we can and must do to raise up leaders from diverse backgrounds.

1) Jo and Vivian discussed the differences between western and eastern styles of leadership. What did you learn from that discussion which could impact your own leadership style? How do you encourage participation from all personality types?
2) Do you feel frustrated with your life now because it doesn’t seem to fit with the calling you feel God is doing? How could He be using the current circumstances to build your character?
3) Who are the people you are trying to reach and raise up as leaders? How can you encourage a greater diversity in leadership and decision making so there are people who can influence and be imitated from the backgrounds you are called to reach?
