Pat Lencioni and the Table Group team recently put together a new tool to assess God-given gifts and talents (this applies to all - pastors, PLT, and staff alike!). This work was born out of the realization that far too many people in the world suffer needlessly because they don't understand their personal areas of working genius. As a result, they don't do the kind of work that gives them joy and energy, and they end up in jobs and projects that are draining and demoralizing.
Even working on-mission together, a parish office cannot reach its full potential if the staff isn’t working within their giftedness, and it's up to the leaders to drive this. Here at Amazing Parish, this model has completely changed the way our team thinks about work and how to get it done.
