Mr. Greg McGinnis
Cross-Cultural Leadership Development, Church Resource Ministries, 1995 - 2005
-Mentored leaders, helping them achieve their goals.
-Evaluated potential leaders, helping them realize and apply their gifts and abilities.
-Personally adapted to diverse cultural situations and expectations.
Working cross-culturally with an international non-profit organization, I came alongside, trained, and mentored pastors and church leadership. I helped them evaluate their present situations, determine realistic and attainable goals, establish practical steps to reach those goals, and guided them toward their fulfillment. I lived and worked in Budapest, Hungary, immersing myself in the culture and becoming conversational in Hungarian. I became experienced working with those unlike myself, in communicating concepts in different ways, and looking for innovative options to overcome challenges.
Senior Systems Analyst, Alabama Power Company, 1982 – 1995
-Designed, programmed, implemented, and maintained computer systems.
-Supported the PC hardware and software in the department.
Working with two others, I designed, programmed, and maintained systems to run on different platforms from PCs to mainframes. I aided chemists and managers define what they needed to accomplish, wrote the programs to meet their needs, and modified the programs as needs changed. I was also responsible for maintaining and upgrading all the PCs in the department.
