It’s hard to believe that the GLS took place almost two weeks ago! For those of you who were able to be present I hope you got as much out of it as I did. I felt that it was the strongest of the three that I have attended with nearly every speaker bringing something unique to the leadership conversation.
If you were in attendance, what was your key take-away(s)? For me it was to work on running better meetings (from Patrick Lencioni’s talk) and to “think inside the box” on a couple of issues I’m working on (from Craig Groeschel’s talk). If you weren’t able to attend we have two copies of the Team Edition (on USB) and you can borrow them from Karen if you’d like to watch any of the sessions. This is equally available for those of you who’d like to see one of the sessions again!
Remember, conferences may give us amazing content, but they do not improve our leadership. Only leading people improves our leadership. So don’t leave everything you learned in your notebook, but put something into practice.
Strategic Goals Due November 4
Just a reminder that I’d like all our Section Leaders to have at least one strategic goal for 2020 to share with the group when we next meet on November 4. These goals are not business-as-usual but are those big goals that would really make a difference in our ministry area if we could get them done. These are goals that probably have more than one part to them and are not impossible but would take some effort to attain them.
If it’s helpful, remember the SMART acronym for goal-setting: Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-Bound. The more these goals fit that acronym the closer you are to having a good goal. We’ll workshop a couple of these big goals while we’re together too so that we can practice. The goal-sharing is also to give us all the big picture of what we are trying to achieve as a leadership group.
