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.”
