Kevin Hallstrom lives in Honolulu, Hawaii and is a school teacher by day while serving in his local ward as the bishop. In this episode we discuss how he leads and what leadership principles have become pillars in his service. He has a great command of the scriptures and relates all his leadership suggestions to scriptural experiences.

We also spend some time talking about his professional teaching career and how leaders can become better teachers.

Bishop Hallstorm’s Leadership Principles:

  1. Don’t you know that you mean everything to me?  – 3 Nephi 8:23-25, 9:13, 11: 14 – 17.
  2. “As for years – D&C 51: 16-17
  3. Spiritual growth occurs as we set individuals up for positive, powerful experiences.  – 1 Nephi 16:18-25.
  4. “For Behold, this is my church” – Mosiah 26:10, 13 – 29.
  5. Approaching the Atonement of Christ – 1 Nephi 8: 10 – 12, 21 – 33

“Teaching is not talking and telling. Rather, teaching is observing, listening and discerning so we then know what to say.”  –  David A. Bednar, A Discussion with Elder Bednar, S&I Training Broadcast, May 2012.
