Consulting

I have consulted with numerous ministries over the last decade. I have a lot of competence around creating healthy leadership teams, implementing change and turnaround strategies. I am also versed in SWOT analysis—which is often the best place to stard with organizations that need to change.

Every ministry organization is unique. There are many unknowns, but my background and experience should assist greatly in managing change and yet staying true to the original charter of your ministry. No single solution or template can address the unique situation. An on-site visit will be the first step in developing a plan of action. It is impossible to outline a detailed plan of action without this face-to-face assessment of the ministry. At the time of an on-site visit and shortly thereafter, we will develop a mutually agreed upon action plan going forward.

Leadership Assessment & Development

My first questions to you are always:

“What is your need?”
“Where are you hurting in your ministry?”
“What needs to change?”
“How can I help?”

During our sessions together, we will pursue a course of action with the leadership team of your ministry to help create a healthy leadership team environment. This is an initial plan of steps needed to get to a plan of action for resolution, not the entire implementation of what it would take to create a high impact healthy leadership environment. In many ways this is organizational counseling, in which the outcomes have everything to do with the response of the individuals that make up the leadership team.

Goal: To assist the leadership of your ministry in addressing leadership team issues with the desired outcome of a high impact healthy, productive, profitable leadership environment.

This outline is a broad overview of my approach as we work together toward your goals. Each consulting agreement is completely tailor made to your situation.

  1. Plan: Our first period of engagement will cover these critical activities.

  2. Listen: Get to know the leadership team and hear from all parties about concerns and frustrations.

  3. Learn: What is the current state of your leadership team? Your organizational health? What are your leadership challenges? What are you trying to change?

  4. Observe: How the team interacts with each other and what issues seem the most concerning to each member.

  5. Assess: Using the “Five Dysfunctions of a Team” assessment tool, gather insight into the current state of the leadership team.

  6. Teach: Principles of effective leadership and how to be a healthy high impact leadership team. The health of the leadership team and how it relates to one another makes all the difference in a successful business environment. Some of this material will come from my book, “The Top Ten Mistakes Leaders Make,” and “Top Ten Ways To Be A Great Leader.”

  7. Encourage: Cast hope and encourage the team that a brighter future is possible if everyone is willing to work at it through a healthy process of conflict resolution, forgiveness, healing and a commitment to a common ideal outcome.

  8. Plan: Determine a plan of action to move from point A (your current state of the team) to a desired point B, with the team each describing what a healthy leadership working environment would look like. The outcome will hopefully reach the desired result of a healthy organization and leadership team.

I work with clients on a month to month basis with no long-term contracts. As long as I provide value, we move forward.
