With Special Guest Ken Noble
On This Episode:
JP Adkins is proud to welcome Ken Noble to the TrueAwesomeLife.com-sponsored Creative Nomads podcast. With over 20 years of coaching and training experience, Ken is an executive director with the Maxwell Leadership team, and is passionate about making the world a better place through adding value to those he works with.
John Maxwell’s Role in Coaching
JP and Ken discuss the impact that John Maxwell has had on the coaching world. For those who haven’t heard of John Maxwell, he’s a renowned coach, speaker, trainer, and developer, and is known for his authenticity.
Titles and Expectations
Ken and JP talk about why they don’t use titles such as Reverend or Pastor due to the pressures that come with them. Ken has been in ministry for almost 20 years, and he’s all too familiar with the world’s expectations, either to compare their beliefs to his, or expect him to be perfect.
Living Into the Listening
Ken Noble then shared a quote to illustrate the importance of titles and how they can influence how people perceive you: “God doesn’t call the qualified, he qualifies the call.” They also discussed the concept of living into the listening, which is when people unconsciously act according to the perceived title of the person they are speaking with.
The Power of Connecting on Common Ground
JP shared a funny story about a business opportunity that didn’t work out due to the script he handed them. He concluded by emphasizing the importance of connecting with people on common ground, and how it is important to research what that common ground may be in order to effectively communicate.
Reminding Yourself of Who You Are
The conversation then shifted to the importance of understanding one’s self and having a clear idea of who one truly is and not being swayed by the scripts of others. JP, who has done the Landmark Forum, talked about how it took him quite a while to figure out who he was as opposed to who he thought he was based on everyone’s input. They encouraged listeners to take the time to remind themselves of who they are and not be influenced by the scripts of others. Ken and JP shared how they wake up each morning and actively remind themselves who they are in their highest form, meditate, journal, and prepare themselves for the world.

During that time, he has spoken at youth camps, internationally at youth groups and college campuses, as well as facilitating leadership retreats. As with any volunteer organization, Ken has had to become adept at building teams with people following a vision and not a paycheck.
