This week we are doing some different – we are introducing Leadership Pipeline, a concept and framework for churches to develop leaders at every level of ministry. Over the course of the week we release a podcast each day. We are also offering a free e-booklet called Developing Your Leadership Pipeline which can bedownloaded here (lifeway.com/churchleaders/free-e-booklet
). If what you read and hear interests you be sure to register for our upcoming webinar, “Leadership Pipeline: The Role of the Volunteer.” (Live.lifewayleadership.com) In this episode Todd Adkins, Eric Geiger, and I discuss the content that best for training people in a leadership pipeline and ask the following questions.
What is the content in a Leadership Pipeline?
Why is it so important?
Where should organizations start when auditing their training content?
Can content really be aligned across complex organizations?
What is competency based learning?
What are practical ways to begin developing content? What are the options for different areas of the church?
“Every organization needs a pipeline. Every person needs a pathway.”
“Without content I don’t have a mechanism to train.”
“Training content must contain knowledge, experience, and coaching.”
“Training in many organizations is a cruise to nowhere.”
“Everyone has content. Which content have you chosen and what are you doing with it?”
“Competency is having a displayed proficiency in something.”
“How do we move from a transfer of information to transformation?”
“When training consider competencies and context.”
