  • Overview of Leadership Boards – “tell them what you’re going to tell them” Importance Expectations Development Meetings Tools & Best practices
  • During the previous sessions you have heard how essential building your staff & Leadership Board are to growing an effective ministry…what I’d like to share with you during the next few minutes are a few tools & best practices I utilized during my 25+ years in corporate America to: Plan more effectively Solve problems / build consensus Develop clear actions / assign responsibility These tools & techniques have also proven useful during the past several years working with churches and Para-church organizations. For those of you who know me I’m a over the top D/C (many of you could have pegged me). If your not wired like me just know just because this stuff may not make you socks go up and down… but it works when applied!
  • This simple process can be utilized for planning meetings, board meetings, team meetings, etc. It’s not rocket science but very effective.

  • This simple process can be utilized for planning meetings, board meetings, team meetings, etc. It’s not rocket science but very effective.
  • There is a simple template (next panel) to capture actions from your meetings, assign responsibility, and timeframe. Actions should be clearly worded (so they make sense days / weeks after the meeting) Actions should be assigned to individual / team (share the load). Should be obvious / or ask for volunteers. Actions should be given a reasonable completion date, allow enough time, consider if action has contingencies to other next steps, events, etc. Actions should be reviewed at the next meeting to ensure progress, accountability.
  • Here’s a sample Next Steps from (from one of our regional board meetings) Actions worded clearly Assignments are usually obvious time frames were realistic (always ask when can you get this completed?) Status column can include notations such as: Done In Progress (language can be added to original next steps if needed. Keeps record of progress Works great / very simple / keeps everyone on the same page! Follow through can be greatly improved Pretty exciting right!

  • The brainstorming process when applied is a great technique to help your team / Leadership Board, Committee reach consensus: problem solving new ideas working through this process will also strengthen your team / build a shared path forward. Pull up your socks ..here we go!!!
  • What events should we have this year to raise $50k additional funds for expansion. participants come to meeting knowing purpose asked to bring their ideas to share must agree to time limit / considerate of everyone's time Facilitator should know process well and willing to “direct” meeting get everyone involved no ambushing ideas no fire hosing Have fun with idea selection (markers, sticky dots, come up front) etc. Once ideas are selected – everyone needs to support
  • Quick example from meeting the regional board had 2 years ago
  • The Regional Board suggested level of personal contributions was discussed and concluded to be: $3000 direct contribution / per couple $7000 indirect contribution / per couple via Robin Hood Classic (Norm Mulder, Champion) Golf Marathon ( Al Schierbaum, Champion) Support for Business Luncheon (Joe Campanella, Champion) Women’s Banquet (TBD, Champion) Pledge Cards to be expanded to include: Amount & Timing of direct contribution Amount & Timing of indirect contribution
  • Robin Hood Classic – Norm Mulder, Champion w/ golf committee (Al, Joe C., Dave, Jerry). Meet and discuss how to improve this event. Different course, different fee structure, auction items, etc. Golf Marathon – Al Schierbaum, Champion w/golf committee (Norm, Joe C., Dave, Jerry) Meet and discuss how to improve level of participation in this event and how to balance financial support (Gordon & Margie Heffern have carried this event 70%+ of total!) FCA Auction (new event)- Brian Fisher, Champion (w/ Bob Yanega, Tom Yancy, Jerry Nuzum) This team needs to assemble and plan the 1 st annual FCA Auction to include what, where, when, how, target $,etc. Event should be scheduled during non-golfing season (Cash flow) Businessman Luncheon w/ guest speaker – Joe Campanella, Champion (w/ Al, Dave, others TBD) This team needs to assemble and plan the 1 st annual Businessman Luncheon to include what, where, when, how, target $,etc. Event should be scheduled during non-golfing season (Cash flow) Women’s Banquet w/guest speaker – Champion TBD (w/ Ester, Mary, Bonnie, Margie) This team needs to assemble and plan the 1 st annual Women’s Banquet to include what, where, when, how, target $,etc. Event should be scheduled during non-golfing season (Cash flow)

  • During a previous “brain storming” session we agreed on the events / initiatives we were going to focus on during the year. Annual review Based on capacity / maturity of LB / staff
  • The Chairperson / Champion takes full responsibility for the event / initiative.. keeps Director informed / seeks input frees up Director to lead ministry / growth All board members expected to lead / participate on teams – no observers!
  • Please pray fully consider which teams / initiatives How mature ministry Size / capacity of board Whatever is done should be done with excellence!
