Gain the skills you need to supervise, delegate, and empower the people you work with.
Preaching? Check. Teaching? Absolutely. Visiting the sick and working to make your community better? Yes, please. All of that may come naturally compared to supervising other people. If you feel like your education prepared you for everything but this critical part of the job, you’re not the only one.
Supervision – especially within congregations and faith communities – requires a unique set of skills to be successful. This course is where those skills are developed.
In Stepping Up to Supervision, you’ll experience hands-on training and practical wisdom that includes:
- The importance of job descriptions and how to design them effectively
- How to hire the right people, so that managing becomes easier
- Techniques for setting performance expectations
- What to do when terminating employment becomes necessary
- The interface between employment and covenantal relationships
- …and so much more!
Shifting Ministry Models
Sometimes, a shift is really just an acknowledgment that business as usual no longer works – and that maybe it never did. Case in point: you may have inherited or even established some ineffective ways of managing the people on your staff. Stopping that may be complicated, but it isn’t impossible. We can help.
Stepping Up to Supervision is your chance to figure out how to manage the culture of your church staff in a sustainable way. Whether you’re hiring, firing, delegating, or empowering, this course will give you the skills and confidence you deserve.
Supervision within a congregation begins by understanding the tension between employment relationships and covenantal relationships. We’ll also explore the need for a performance management system, and clarify the three unique sets of expectations for every staff member.
