What are the top 2 reasons people give me for not continuing development in their current role?
Time and Money.
No surprise there, right?
I cannot make time for you, that is something you will have to make on your own. But I may have found a way to get funding to alleviate the affordability issue. (If you qualify) Check out the link by clicking here for more info on MentorWorks, a government initiative to get businesses and organizations into training their people. If you qualify, you can be eligible for anywhere from 60% to 100% of training costs covered. (Depending on your province)
Take a look, then contact me about a specific workshop or training/coaching series to submit with the application.
(Pass this along to your ministry associates who could benefit as well)
I offer training that helps leaders develop their skills and personal growth.
My desire is to see leaders freed to lead. In my own experience, and through countless conversations with vocational leaders and staffers, freedom is not the first word that comes to mind. Many struggle with the daily pressures of administration, the balancing of opinions and demands, and maintaining a personal spiritual journey they would wish upon everyone in Christ. That is a tightrope. Discovering our own personal limitations and key areas of growth is a huge step in allowing God to shape us into the leaders He desires us to become. The same could be true of everyone else called into ministry on your staff.
True health in leadership is not satisfying a list of demands; it is an outpouring of what God is working in and through you.
If you don’t qualify for the MentorWorks grant contact me anyway and we can chat about options that fit your budget:
- The MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) for teams. Learning about your social self to understand one another on a team, creating healthy dynamics as you grow together.
- Living Better Together! I have bragged about this one a few times, and here is your opportunity to check it out on the cheap. MBTI, Communication, and Values.
- Telos or Seasons. An interactive and helpful look forward and backward to establish vision and clear direction for your team and organization.
- Individualized coaching or specialized workshops to fit your needs. Contact me and we can set something up!
