TUNING IN. STATS DON'T LIE!

Odds are, the fact you are at this site means you're already a high-achiever and visionary.

  • What are YOU driven by?

  • What are your TEAMMATES driven by?

  • What is your ORGANIZATION driven by?

As you reflect on your own leadership and team, maybe you ask yourself...

  • Have I ever struggled to figure me out - to know what winds me up, or shuts me down?

  • Have I ever been mystified by teammates who are stuck in old patterns of thinking, control, codependence, risk-averse, grandiosity, or more?

  • Have I ever strived to change the culture of my organization, but somehow the opposing current has been too strong?

Many leaders look over their organization and wonder what the invisible virus is that debilitates their best hard skill competencies. Maybe you relate. You have developed and coached the team on every competency you can. You have been trained, gone to conferences, hired consultants/counselors, and read books. But you and your organization continue to struggle in fruitfully executing at home and in the organization.

The stats below are stunning. Stats don’t lie. Take a look and ask yourself if you are tuned into the true condition of you and your team.

We acknowledge that Lead Pastors are a unique breed. The profession itself requires being an articulate communicator, motivator, coach, accountability partner, teacher, boss, expert, counselor, and so much more. Until someone is functioning as a pastor, as well intentioned as they may be, they can never truly understand the complexities of a pastor’s role.

 

At Red Ink Revival, we create safe and energizing cohorts exclusive to senior pastors and staff. You will be held in a sacred space. Our environments are both honest and honoring. Our experts will guide the exploration of team members’ stories without judgment or criticism. Individuals, or the entire staff team, will have space for optimum processing without static. You will be teamed with other journeying pastor-peers in an environment of complete confidentiality.
