Your team needs to know that you care. About them personally, of course, but also about their performance in their jobs. Most church staff really do want to do good work, and often need feedback along the way to help that to happen – especially those newer to their roles. Defining the “win” upfront is critical, but regular check-ins show that you’re engaged and available to offer advice, encouragement and course-corrections, if needed.

“One of the most important maxims of leadership is: ‘Don’t expect what you don’t inspect.’ While leaders tend to be very good at casting vision, they tend to be weak at execution. How often have you conveyed a great idea to your leadership team only to realize months later that it is no further along? When leaders don’t follow up regularly and consistently, associates often become jaded…” – Alan E. Nelson
