Empower Small-Group Leaders

Empower Small-Group Leaders

Release your leaders to lead without micromanaging or giving total freedom.

If we want effective, healthy, growing ministries, we have to depend on our small-group leaders to carry out important leadership tasks. We simply can't do it all, so we have to empower our leaders to actively lead and shepherd their group members. This requires us to strike the right balance with leaders where they fully know what's expected of them, have all the tools they need, and have some autonomy in carrying out those tasks. In other words, we must steer clear from the extremes of micromanaging and giving leaders total freedom. It's a tricky line to walk, but this Training Tool will show you how.
