Searching for Strong Leadership Teams

What 145 Church Teams Told Us
By Warren Bird and Ryan Hartwig
During the first half of 2012, we invited churches from around the world to assess their senior leadership team for free. Nearly 600 people representing leadership teams at 145 churches took us up on the offer – and the results provided some surprising insights. We listed the top findings, wanting to help senior leadership teams see how they compare to teams at other churches.
This project was conducted jointly by Azusa Pacific University and Leadership Network, and included special permission to utilize a team assessment tool developed by Harvard researchers and Hay Group consultants. Churches that participated in this study also received tailored action steps to help enhance their team’s effectiveness, as well as detailed information about how their leadership team measures up when compared to success indicators in the Harvard Business School book Senior Leadership Teams: What It Takes to Make Them Great.

Many churches today have moved to a senior leadership team model but few know how to help their team work better, healthier, or more effectively. How do you set team goals or measure its performance? What best increases trust, tears down silos, and motivates team members to work more collaboratively? What’s the optimal size for a maximum-impact team? Why are some teams more innovative than others?
If you are currently asking yourself these or similar questions, you are invited to participate in wave 2 of this study. In return for an investment of your time, your team will receive a free, team assesment report. But hurry - this offer expires on February 28, 2013. Click here to learn more.
