So much of leadership comes from your gut. But what happens when your gut isn’t enough to get unstuck? This is the question that Tony Morgan and Ryan Stigile answer in Vital Signs: Meaning Metrics That Keep a Pulse on Your Church’s Health.
Knowledge is easy to come by in a digital age. Just click over to YouTube and search for a “how to” of just about anything. Yet knowledge is rarely enough to make the critical decisions necessary to lead your organization to the next level.
Perspective is what makes good leaders, effective leaders. And that’s what getting unstuck is all about.
Just read some of the wisdom from this outstanding resource:
- “Leaders develop a vision for the future and set out to pursue it with the best of intentions. But they fail to assess their church’s current level of health and end up exhausted before anything significant changes.”
- “Healthy organizations anticipate these culture shifts and adjust their models rather than react after it is too late.”
- “Many church leaders spend years addressing symptoms in their organizations.”
- “A diagnosis is not enough to change the direction of your life. Nor does a health assessment of your church change the direction of its future. The only way to experience better results is to do something different. ”
You seriously need to stop what you’re doing and go download this eBook. (ALERT! Easy decision.) It’s only $2.99 (and available on the iBookstore, too, if that is your preference).
Are you sure you’re measuring the right things to know how to properly diagnosis the health of your church?
