Today’s Guest is Dr. Michaela O’Donnell, Executive Director of the Max De Pree Center for Leadership and the author of Make Work Matter: Your Guide to Meaningful Work in a Changing World. A seasoned entrepreneur and practical theologian, Michaela’s work is to help you think meaningfully about yours.
In addition to her academic work, Michaela has over ten years of experience as a leader in the marketplace. Principally, as the Owner and Managing Director of Long Winter Media, a vibrant creative agency that helps brands make a social impact through multi-media content. Long Winter Media’s roster of clients includes Google, YouTube, NBC Universal, University of Southern California, Presbyterian Church (USA), Fuller Seminary, and many more.
Michaela regularly writes and teaches on topics of vocation, change, innovation, creativity, faith/work, and gender dynamics in leadership.
In today’s episode, Michaela and I chat about why the topic of making work matter is needed in our world today, what Holy wrestling is and how this impacts our way to meaningful work, and what meaningful work looks like.
It’s the start of a new year and I have a sneaky suspicion that some of you are longing for meaningful work in 2022. You want your work to matter and you want your work to make a difference. Maybe you’ve heard me say, “What You Do Matters.” Today, I pray that Part #1 of my chat with Michaela, would encourage you and that you would walk away knowing that what you do, really matters. Your work matters!
