    Six Steps to Finding Direction

  • First of Four Keys to Great LeadershipFirst Key:Select a Person

    Wrong:select a person based on his experience, intelligence, and determination

    Right:select a person for their gift, not simply experience, intelligence, or determination

  • What is a gift?II Cor 12:7; Rom 12:6

    A gift is a recurring pattern of thought, feeling, or behavior that can be productively applied.

    The key to excellent performance is finding the match between your gifts and your role.

    A youthful heart

    The Paretti rule:80 20

  • How to manage around a weaknessAsk:is the poor performance trainable? (is it a skills or knowledge problem)

    Right:by helping him find the right fit, not simply the next rung on the ladder

  • How to view youth pastorsDont view each youth pastor as a pastor in waiting.Develop levels in each position and allow people to grow and progress while remaining in their area of strength.Dont promote them out of the area of their excellence.
