In my series on the transformational leader I am looking at the various aspects & skills of leadership.
A key attribute of being a transformational leader is called individual consideration.
Primarily this is about working with people where they are at, in order to help get them to where they should be.
As we’ve entered the final stages of this journey we’ve conducted numerous small group meetings over many months with different members of our church.
These have ranged from
- one on one chats
- morning teas
- medium size groups.
This process has been particularly helpful to both ourselves & our church as we have carefully & sensitively helped members process the letting go of us as senior leaders & the embracing of our new senior pastors, Jase & Em Schroeder.
Taking the time to sit with people, explain where we are at in the process, connect to their feelings, outline our exciting future & build faith for our church’s future has been hugely beneficial.
So if you are leading significant change in your organisation take the time to consider how each individual is handling that change. That’s being a transformational leader.
Trust me, they will all be doing their own individual journey.
