Learn from Liz Easton as she shares how she leads in the moment with integrity. The Reverend Canon Liz Easton is Canon to the Ordinary in the Episcopal Diocese of Nebraska. She has served the Episcopal Church in Nebraska since her ordination to the priesthood in 2009. She is a co-host of the podcast Popping Collars, which explores the intersection of religion and popular culture. Seasons Leadership Co-Founders Susan Ireland and Debbie Collard and Seasons Leadership Communications and Marketing Leader Lauren Penning talk with Liz about leadership, her faith, moving from Seattle to Nebraska, leading from the second chair and pandemic leadership challenges.

Show Notes:

Liz shares how she decided on the unique profession of priest (5:40) in the Episcopal Church which includes the story of her big move from Seattle, WA, to Omaha, NE (9:00). The women discuss how a change of place can help with a shift in leadership roles (11:33) and the grace of having a fresh start. Liz talks about how she strives to empower people with faith as her cornerstone (14:11). Next the conversation turns to unique leadership challenges faced by the church during the pandemic (16:30). Liz shares that she is most proud of playing matchmaker (but not how you think) (19:50). The discussion moves to how Liz is successful in her current leadership role by asking for help (22:15), being comfortable leading from the second chair (24:30) and making decisions in the moment (26:40). The last third of the discussion covers the two sides to resiliency (29:01), how failing is ultimately part of success (30:36) and finding balance (32:40). Liz explains the story of The Wandering Clarkson (37:24), what cartoon character she would be and her latest book recommendations.
