Today’s guest on the Answers From Leadership podcast is David Abraham. David is a revivalist who desires nothing more than to see a generation encounter the tangible presence of God! David believes that one encounter with Jesus can change the destiny of a person, a country or a generation forever!

David and his wife Rebecca are founders of Revive, an evangelistic ministry with a prophetic declaration to incite God-encounters in the lives of individuals and churches around the world. Out of this, they’ve started“NOW” (, encounter-based events on secular university campuses in which students are invited to encounter God!

Do you know how to ignite the passion of those you lead?

Having grown up in the church, David is passionate in helping people become free from the culture of religion and “churchianity” so they can truly live in the Father’s love and affirmation; in turn, live out their God-given identity. David has worked Pastor William McDowell and his team to help launch Deeper Fellowship Church in Orlando, FL and at the end of 2015, David and Rebecca were named in Charisma Magazine’s “rising voices under 40” article.

Today’s guest on the Answers From Leadership podcast is Ann Fishman. For more than two decades, Ann has been at the forefront of major generational trends. Receiving four U.S. Senate Research Fellowships, she introduced America to lifelong learning and intergenerational mentoring by creating Senate Information Papers, national workshops, and Federal legislation.

I’m excited to bring Ann on the show to discuss generational trends in leadership, especially in relation to millennials. After my talk with Ann, I was pumped.

I think you will be as well.

Ann, what else do you want listeners to know about you?

The most interesting thing about my life is that I handed a cake to Roy Rogers when I was 10, I accidentally met Elvis Presley at an airport, and I was trapped in Hurricane Katrina and got out by a tugboat. You don’t get more interesting than that.

Any manager would appreciate having a team that could work effectively and independently, without over­relying on him or her to answer questions or smooth over minute workflow issues.

However, in many companies, this is simply not the case. Why?

Sometimes, it has to do with the team. Maybe your team is inexperienced at certain tasks and needs some extra oversight.

Sometimes, it’s a question of tools. Maybe your organization hasn’t fully bought into the collaborative software or communication tools you need to work more effectively, so workflows are spotty across a project’s timeline.

And sometimes, it’s your own inability to let go. Research from teamfocus finds many managers have trouble fully putting their trust in team members. As a result, work bottlenecks, team members struggle to clearly understand what it is they’re supposed to be doing, and managers increasingly feel bound to their jobs — at the expense of their own free time.

Let me introduce you to today’s guest on the Answers From Leadership podcast. His name is Mike Boyink (his last name is pronounced like the sound effect).

Mike is a husband, father, and a techie. And some people say a little nutso. He built a comfortable suburban self-employed lifestyle to provide for his family only to sell off the house, give away most of their stuff, and hit the road full-time.

While you might not consider this to be the ideal of a standard leader, I’ve come to find out that leaders need to be leaders of their family as well. Mike’s been doing that consistently while traveling the United States with his family.

Ralph, what else do you want listeners to know about you?

Before the interview, I intended to go out shark fishing but couldn’t. I’d hurt my ankle training for a marathon the other day.
