It’s a New Year! Free Assessment to Learn How Your Leadership Team Is Doing

January 23, 2017

by Warren Bird

TODAY is a great time to assess how your church’s senior leadership team is doing — and how it could improve. Here are three great ideas:


1. Team Self-Assessment. How well does your church practice collaborative leadership? Have your team take this short, free assessment, and then talk it through. Go to and select “free resources” at top (or go directly here).

2. Read the Book as a Team. More than 10,000 leaders have already found help from Teams That Thrive by Ryan Hartwig and Warren Bird. It already won two awards: Outreach magazine’s Leadership Resource of the Year and the annual Readers’ Choice Award from InterVarsity Press. If you want the book for you or your entire team, here’s the lowest price on it that we can find anywhere. (And if you buy it by 1/29/17 and tweet about it including #TeamsThatThrive, you’ll be automatically entered into a $50 gift card drawing).

3. Get Quick, Practical Advice. Here’s our “top 10” list (free) of the questions we’ve been asked by people using the book, and our advice and coaching for each situation.

We hope these resources will help you build strong leadership for your ministry teams!
