Each month we'll sit down with Pastor Kevin, Coach K, for some team talk—conversations every team needs to have. We'll start the conversation and encourage you to finish it!
We pick up right where we left off last month in our conversation about the Team Church Code. This month, the statements that we talk through are, “We abandon smallness” (3:24), “We are undeterred by offense” (12:55), “We starts with me” (18:26), and “We move church forward” (22:15). We hope this helps you continue building a framework for your own code.
What is your code? At the core of every person or every team, exists some sort of code. We gave language to ours and wrote it down. Today, is part one of our discussion about the Team Church Code and we hope that this code is something that can be reflected in the hearts of our team church tribe. The statements that we discuss today in part one are “We go together, not alone” (2:09), “We are undivided” (8:12), and “We let the best idea win” (16:50). Use our conversation with your own team to start a discussion about what your code is. Take ours and put it into practice with your own teams, or just use ours as a framework, but start putting language to who you are as a team.
You are incredible. No really, you are! This month’s episode is all about encouragement. Something seemingly so small, could very possibly be the thing that will take your team and your culture to the next level. We talk about creating a culture of encouragement in your organization (3:15) and give you five points about encouragement (13:44). Listen to this episode, talk with your teams, and tell somebody how incredible they are!
In this podcast, we pull from one of the points of our very first episode. That is, the speed with which you lead. We chat for a bit on the dumb dichotomy of “getting it right” vs “doing it fast” (1:32) and explain that this is not a one or the other situation. We should strive to get things right, while doing it fast. We follow that up by giving you three reasons why we lead fast (9:53), talk about urgency (19:02), and close things up by guiding you and your teams to ask each other, “What can I do, and what can we do, to increase speed?” (21:45).
Individual leadership won’t get you very far. In the first episode, Kevin Gerald talks about some of the keys to leading like a team.
