ANOTHEN is a Global Senior Executive Consulting Network that increases a Christian Senior Executive’s ability to think, speak and live like heaven.
We have been activated to be the best in the world at that.
Anothen currently operates with clients in 8 US States and 9 Countries and is working with some of the worlds leading Christian Executives. Anothen is only one year old and is expanding at a rapid rate.
Read below why some of the worlds leading Christian Executives are part of the story of Anothen!
One of the tools used by Anothen is the Boardroom Of The Inner Man.
Welcome to the Boardroom Of The Inner Man.
Imagine with me, if you will, a Boardroom. It can be as simple or as opulent as you want it to be. There is a large table, surrounded by eight chairs.
This concept of an “inner boardroom” is not hard to grasp. Even if we have never experienced a Board meeting for ourselves, we’ve all seen the dramatizations on TV and in the movies. There is always an Overbearing Member, who yells and thumps the table authoritatively with his clenched fist in order to get his point across; the Bored-looking Member who twirls his pencil and looks at his watch periodically; the CEO, who either commands attention and dominates by his very presence, or demands it in dictatorial ways; and then there’s the Members who appear to have no say at all, but who scurry to do the bidding of everyone else. We’ve all seen what can happen if the board rejects the authority of the CEO. We’re all aware of the damage that can be done if the Board does not operate in unity.
It is exactly the same with each one of us. Inside each of us are “Board-member’s” that must learn to work together, and to submit to the CEO. Perhaps you are familiar with some of these characters? Our modern day poets and songwriters have captured this concept well. The lyrics to many songs, and even our every day language, reflects that we are aware of more than one aspect of our inner self. For example, have you ever said something along the lines of “well—my head says one thing, but my heart tells me something different”? Or maybe something more like this –“my conscience is really beating me up over that decision!” Or even, “my heart’s just not in it; I don’t have the will power…”
To the right of the CEO’s chair sits the Heart, and next to that, the Mind. To the left of the CEO sits the Conscience and the Emotions. These four, in the dysfunctional Boardroom scenario, are what I call the “CEO wanna-be’s”. They vie for the position of Chairman. They each want to be the one to call the shots.
It takes very little imagination to see the consequences of the way this Board operates. It may hold together for a short while, true, but in the long run there will be a trail of destruction and more failed attempts than successful ones at making productive decisions. To clarify—some of us think we work quite well in our dysfunctional state. I know I did! Upon closer inspection, though, we come to realize that when anyone other than the Holy Spirit assumes the role of CEO, there will always be some part of us that is beaten down, or under developed or immature, and therefore ineffective, which means that we are not spiritually healthy, which means we are not operating at our best, the way God intended.
It was this concept that started me on my own personal journey of spiritual growth and discovery. My first venture into my own inner Boardroom was fascinating and revealing and I have not stopped delving into the mysteries that God constantly reveals to me. Exploring my boardroom drove me back to the Word of God, and consequently deeper into His heart and His character. I learned that God speaks to me directly, and I learned to cultivate the skill of listening to the Still Small Voice of the Holy Spirit that never stops speaking. The more you pay attention to His voice, the louder and more recognizable it becomes.
Many people over the years have enjoyed this approach to resolving issues and tensions, as it explains why conflicts occur within us, and can show us how to submit all areas of our inner life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Learning these skills opens the door to a vibrant and God-centered spiritual journey that will not just whet your appetite for more of Him, but will launch you into a life of faith and dependency on Him like you have never known before.
