4 Vital Steps to Move what’s Stuck
You know when something’s not right, but you can’t quite put your finger on it. How do you jump-start something when you don’t really know what’s broken?
That’s not a clichÃ©’, but rather the most important thing when starting to implement any kind of change. Pray specifically for a opneess in your heart – because the change God brings may no be your first choice. Pray for your ears, that you will hear God clearly.
You can’t get clarity about your next step if you don’t know where you are. Perspective is when you ask yourself, your team, other leaders and observers to give you input on the effectiveness of the church or organization. Not “how” you are doing things but more of “what are we getting done?”
With the new open heart and ears, and armed with some great feedback and honest evaluations, you can begin to put together a plan. The plan must contain…
- What must we do?
- What must we get done?
- What must we measure to see if we are getting it done?
Everything you see, hear and experience in your church or organization is a direct result of some system in place. If you say you don’t have a system, you do, but not a very good one. The vital part of a process is the ability to identify when Â the plan goes off course, and have the where with all to measure it’s effectiveness. Then know when to change “how” you are doing it to make sure what must get done, gets done!
These have helped me, is there another step that has benefited you and your organization?Â
