As leaders we all want to move our churches or organizations forward.
Maintenance leads to stagnation and decay. (Just ask the
buggy-whip manufacturing association.) The world won't stand
still, and neither can we.
However, despite our best intentions, many things get in our way.
- The urgent drowns out the important things of our
- When life is easy, our attention drifts from moving forward
to simply standing still.
- Even when we focus we dont seem to make progress because we dont
grasp that next step to move our dreams forward.
Years pass and we realize that we never achieved the things we
believed that God was calling and had gifted us to achieve.
Leaders often need help keeping the vital focus that keeps us on
track. Your coach will help you achieve that vital focus. Together you will
accomplish the following:
Define your important goals in practical, achiveable terms. If
you dont know where you are going, you cant get there.
Even if you know where you want to go (Turn my plateaued
church into a growing church) you may not have defined the
goal clearly enough to take action on it. Your coach will guide you
to define these things more clearly.
Identify your barriers. What is holding you back?
Sometimes it isnt even a leadership issue. If you struggle with
problems in your personal life you cannot focus clearly on your
leadership goals. If you have leadership behaviors that make you
less effective these need to change. Perhaps you don really own
these goals, and you need to set new ones. Once you and your coach identify
your barriers, develop a plan to overcome them and work that plan
together, you will find your leadership potential released.
Keeping on track and adjusting goals and strategies. Since you
will meet with your coach on a regular basis you will be able to hold
yourself accountable to your living out the call of God on your life.
In addition, you will recognize early when a particular strategy
isnt working and be able to make adjustments. And, since the
world will not stand still, your goals may need adjustment from time
to time. Your coach will help you do all of these things.
