Leadership Assessment


Sometimes we act as if we as leaders already know our strengths and weaknesses, that we have no blindspots in our lives, and that we know how to fit neatly together with as volunteer or staff team. Sometimes things work out by the grace of God. I prefer to act a bit more proactively. I call this Leadership Assessment.

How can this improve my congregation? We each have a different style of doing many of the following:

  • Making decisions
  • Reacting to stress
  • Interacting with people
  • Dealing with conflict
  • Lead teams

And much more.

And this is even before you begin talking about Spiritual Gifts, Languages of Love and Apology, and and the shadow-side (aka sinfulness) of our particular personalities.

Leaving all of this to simply “happen” can lead to some very bad problems. When ministry flows well, there may not be an issue. However, once an issue arises the damage to the team and ministry has been done. As with all of life, in ministry prevention always beats repair every time.

I would be happy to help you select appropriate tools for you and your team, and then to coach you through using them to improver your ministry.
