Vision Discernment and Implementation
Let's face it...helping your church discern a compelling vision for the future is something most churches wish they could do effectively, yet struggle with tangibly.
With my consulting partner, Dr. Corey Schlosser-Hall, we help churches discern vision through a customized, effective, and highly encouraging process, combining Appreciative Inquiry with Solution-Focused Processing.

What will change for your church if you are clear about the vision you believe God has for you? We'd love to help you discern what that future might be...and then put that vision into action.
Building Trustworthiness and Effectiveness in Leadership Teams
This is a confusing and unnerving time in history to many in the church, and congregational anxiety levels can rise dramatically as the things that always seemed to work so well in the past simply fall flat. When anxiety levels rise, so does emotional reactivity, in-fighting, blame displacement, tunnel vision, and a "quick fix" mentality. Needless to say, all of this has tendency to cripple the church's witness to the world, rather than enhance it, and ultimately doesn't solve a thing.
The leadership of the church faces a number of challenges--not the least of which is to manage its own anxiety and temptation to join in the congregation's reactivity. Will the congregation's anxiety impact the leadership team, or will the leadership team's non-anxious presence positively impact congregational anxiety?
We work with church leadership teams like yours--in workshops, retreats, and ongoing coaching and consulting--to help you learn how to radically maximize your collaboration during these "interesting" times. Through the use of the Core Values Index (a simple and powerful tool that will forever change the way you approach leadership and teamwork), you'll discover how to bring out the highest and best contributions in each other, and model healthy, non-anxious relationships for the rest of the church.
Your church will be best served by a leadership team that embodies your vision. Through tailored consulting with your team, we will help you both develop and sustain that focus.
