Werner Mischke will lead a workshop “Giving Honor: A Key to Healthy Cross-Cultural Partnerships” (Friday at 3:30p) in the executive leadership tract. Here is the workshop summary:

Objective 2: Examine what rivalry and honor competition look like in mission agencies, networks, or cross-cultural partnerships today. Bring to the surface honor-status issues that often remain unstated in cross-cultural collaboration.
Objective 3: Explore the Scriptures showing Jesus and Paul revealing that serving and “giving honor” undermine rivalry and honor competition.
Objective 4: Consider what “giving honor” looks like in cross-cultural partnerships today. It often looks like empathic listening.
