Whenever you meet together as a church, team or staff- Pray! I know most of you do, but I’m talking about just a quick five minute “Huddle” where you ask…
What’s the win for today?
What’s our biggest challenge?
What are we expecting God to do?
Let me give you an example. We began this several months back. We meet every morning, including Sundays at 7:55 for 5 minutes. We answer those three questions and then pray. You will be amazed at how much unity and power comes through this practice.
5- Minute Note
The sweetest word to anyone is their name. Especially if they see it in writing! Keep a stack of note cards (personalized if possible, they aren’t expensive) on your desk and as you remember someone’s service, sacrifice, or generosity, write a quick note.
It carries tremendous weight with those you lead and serve. The word will get around, your influence as a leader will increase.
5- Minute Goals
Typically those you lead can’t see the big picture or vision. But, they can track with you on a small goal for the current week. Mark out three simple forward moving goals and just take five minutes to share it with those that could contribute to its success.
They will see you as empowering and inclusive when it comes to the future success of the church.
Ok. That s only 15-minutes this week that can drastically change the culture of your church. Do it now, and make it a weekly habit, I promise the returns will be huge!
