We are all leaders of at least one person, ourselves. Most of us lead others as well: our children; volunteers; committees; executives; employees; peers; etc. When was the last time you clearly communicated your personal leadership philosophy to those you lead? Do they know what you value, what you will tolerate and will not tolerate, what you expect of them and what they can expect of you?
When we clearly communicate these aspects and more, it builds trust with others as well as freeing us to act consistently based on our principles. Don't you respect and trust those that live consistently with their professed set of values and beliefs?
To achieve a desired vision, teams must transition from where they are to where they need to be. To successfully transition, leaders must earn the trust of their team. The quicker and more concrete leaders earn the trust of their team, the more engaged the team will be and the greater the performance and results. On the other hand, without trust in their leaders… At best, members will just go along with the flow putting in just enough effort to stay unnoticed until they retire, find something better and leave, or the leaders change again. At worst, members will actively disengage and in many cases say they are on board, but covertly become an obstacle to success and influence others to join their efforts. Loyalties get tested and chaos and disunity are the result.
Leaders must be intentional to earn the trust of their team as it doesn’t happen by accident and in many relationships it can take a significantly long time. The Leader’s Compass expedites by 9 to 12 months building trust in your leader-team relationships. Can you afford to wait the next 9+ months before developing sufficient trust with your teams before they fully engage? The Leader’s Compass Workshop will help you be a more effective leader wherever you serve. This exercise is very applicable to us as Christians who have been called to be “fishers of men.” I strongly believe that “fishers” and “leaders” are synonyms in this context.
Participants will be able to make the following statements with confidence:I know who I am and what I believe inI know the values that are important to meI know my prioritiesI know my personal expectations and what I expect of othersI know what I will demand and what I will not tolerateDuring the course of the workshop, we will discover together how to apply timeless principles to our own lives, and how to communicate our own unique Leader's Compass.
