Meet Dr. Scott Francis! Husband, Father, Executive Coach, Podcaster, Chaplain and Volunteer Fireman! We could go on, but there just isn't enough space! We are thrilled to have Scott serving with us in Saskatchewan.
In between spring grass fires and visits to the Legislature, Scott shares the following:
This has been an exciting couple months! I joined the Leading Influence team in Saskatchewan following the conclusion of the recent provincial election. Since then life has been a bit of whirlwind finding my feet in a new role.
It was incredibly inspiring to attend the MLA swearing-in ceremony. Most impressive was to see a group of people committing themselves to serve in the full knowledge that this will be a difficult and challenging job. Their decision to give of themselves inspired me to commit myself to support them both emotionally and spiritually.
The first few days of spring session made it very clear that SK MLA’s have a significant amount of work ahead of them. There are difficult decisions on the horizon that will test their wisdom, strength and courage. They truly need our prayers and support.
Leaders in the public service face make great sacrifices, which can result in deep challenges. It is easy to run out of emotional and spiritual gas. When a person’s internal life becomes depleted, it can lead to stress and difficulty. Leaders with the best of intentions can be blind-sided and become derailed both professionally and personally.
My passion is to contribute to the inner spiritual life of the MLAs and to help them live in a way that builds substance. Please pray for me as I do it.
