Once you’re clear on your purpose and the context in which you can best live it out…

How can you communicate your calling in a winsome way?

It’s important to intentionally craft your second-half message with the key stakeholders in your life in mind: family, friends, colleagues, employees, and new team members.

However, these audiences likely have very different views about what you are going to focus on in this next season…

During the webinar, Lloyd Reeb and Doug Piper discuss  a communication strategy with Halftime Alum and Founder of the Antioch MovementJimmy Seibert, who has navigated the challenges of bringing his global message to diverse and contentious settings for over 40 years.

During our time together, Jimmy and Lloyd shared best practices for communicating your calling with both care and clarity.

4 Reminders When Communicating Your Calling 

1. Be authentic – People are desperate for authenticity. Are you communicating to get the market or are you communicating from the heart? People experience who we are and what we really believe more than what we say we think.

2. Don’t underestimate culture Without understanding the context of your audience, you’ll make presuppositions and communicate in a way that is not meeting the true needs of their hearts.

3. Ask questions first – Start by getting a feel for where your audience is coming from and what their stories may be. Then, look for a chance to connect your story with theirs. 

4. Go for the relationship – God makes up for the imperfections in our communication when we’re really in it for the other person. Don’t seek a debate, seek a relationship. I Thessalonians 2:3-8 provides powerful wisdom in this area.

The Halftime Institute is the leading authority on creating a next season defined by joy, impact, and balance. For more than 20 years, we’ve served thousands of men and women from varied backgrounds. The concept of ‘halftime’ was born out of the best-selling book, Halftime: Moving from Success to Significance, written by Bob Buford. Following the popularity and resonance of his book, Bob founded the Halftime Institute in order to provide a hands-on process and community for growth, support, and learning for people walking through their own season of ‘halftime’. Since then, the Institute has expanded to include world-class Coaches, Staff, and Resources – equipping leaders all over the globe. Interested in gaining clarity for your next season?
