    Sharpen Your Ax: Seize Opportunities to Step Back

    Sharpen Your Ax: Seize Opportunities to Step Back

    Are you taking the time, both scheduled and unscheduled, to step back, reflect, and recharge? We suspect your answer is “No, I don’t have enough time to get all the work done that I need to do, so who has time for that?!”  So in this episode, Nick and Rick explore ways to ensure that you regularly take advantage of the opportunities to “sharpen the ax,” whether they are via planned retreats and offsites, or whether they are less-planned as with a sudden job change. You can and must leverage every good chance to sharpen your axe.

    Don’t use “family” in the workplace

    Don’t use “family” in the workplace

    Unfortunately, leaders in the Church too often buy this bad advice as they try to lead people as though they are running a business. That’s not biblical. And it doesn’t work well in the Church. So set down “Inc. Magazine” and “Harvard Business Review” for the length of this episode, and consider what the Bible and Jesus have to say about becoming a family on mission. You’ll love it brothers and sisters!

    Goals? Really? In the Church? Why?

    Goals? Really? In the Church? Why?

    Goals. Focus. Energy. 
     
    The Mission Guys close out a mini-series for leaders on strategic planning. In this episode, they’ll help you as leaders to think about how best to establish your organization’s goals, in order to focus the energy of your team to achieve what it is the Lord has called you to achieve together.

    You can’t measure success in the Church! (3rd in a series on strategic planning)

    You can’t measure success in the Church! (3rd in a series on strategic planning)

    In this episode, Nick and Rick tackle one of the biggest challenges for leadership teams in the Church, which is to figure out how to assess and monitor the success of their organization (diocese, parish, school, apostolate, etc.). Metrics, indicators, measures, markers, KPIs, SMART objectives, and many more terms like those often get leaders in the Church especially agitated. Some insist that you can’t measure results in the church, while others suggest that you should measure the Church just like a business…both extremes are wrong, but contain some valuable insights.

    You must clarify the mission! (second in a series)

    You must clarify the mission! (second in a series)

    In this episode, the second part of a mini-series on strategic planning, Nick and Rick focus on the concept of ’mission’, the definition, the often confused difference and relationship between mission and vision, why clarity of mission matters in the church (parish, diocese, school, family, your organization), and how to approach missional clarity.
     
    Though vision and mission are critically linked and dependent on each other, it is vital for leaders to know the difference and the importance of providing clarity of both. So the “mission” of this episode is to help leaders become more comfortable and confident in discerning and effectively communicating their mission for the entire team/family.
     

    Mission Challenge: 
    Prayer Sessions: Higher Level, longer-term mission. For example:
    What is our part of the Great Commission; what are you calling us to do? 
    How are we to arrive at the vision of success that you have shown us?

    Prayer Sessions: Deeper Dives, shorter term
    How will we succeed in your mission for us?
    What is most important right now?
    Who is to do what?
    What am I personally called to do in light of the larger mission here?

    Strategic Planning Mini-Series: It All Starts with Vision
    Mission, Vision, Strategy, Plans, Goals, Metrics, KPIs, …Ugh! The Church is not a business! Do we need any of this? I’m confused. 
     
    In this mini-series on Strategic Planning in the Church, Nick and Rick simplify strategic planning for leaders in the Church, from a biblical perspective and always being docile to the Holy Spirit.
     
    This episode focuses on the importance of Vision and how to go about discerning a common vision of success for your diocese, parish, school, apostolate, or family — one of the most fundamental and important responsibilities of leaders in the Church.
