YFC Leadership Development
Transcript of YFC Leadership Development
Development Action Individual Development The goal of YFC Leadership Development is to equip leaders with character and competency to advance the mission of YFC and the kingdom of God.
Guided by values of kingdom development, personal ownership and outcomes focus. Leadership Development Strategies As the Baby Boom generation of senior management heads off into retirement, American and European businesses are being warned they will suffer an unprecedented loss of skills and experience unless they get better at managing the transfer of knowledge from one generation to another.
-Management Issues We’re heading toward a leadership vacuum. Who’ll replace the retiring generation? In the next fifteen years, 45% of the workforce in the U.S. will be disappearing. The Baby Boomers, which make up the majority of this group are retiring and vacating their roles in business, in government, in education, in churches and as missionaries. These holes must be filled by young, trained leaders. Why? Leaders provide solutions. That’s what our world needs most—a new batch of leaders. According to research done by the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA, leadership qualities can no longer be the property of the elite few. In today’s world, every student will need to learn leadership skills.
-Dr. Tim Elmore Refers to helping an individual person grow into the person they were created to be for maximum kingdom impact. For the individual, we talk about skill development, character development, spiritual formation, etc. It has to do with how people achieve their potential. Individual Development Philosophy
Leadership Development: Developing people who are leaders or developing people into leaders?
Are leaders born? Made?
Is everyone a leader?
Whose job is leader development?
Each person has a certian leadership capacity on the day we meet them. Proper development will help them lead up to their capacity and may also increase their capacity. High capacity leaders are a high-leverage investment of our efforts. Scope Target Outcomes Self-Awareness Highly Individualized
“in his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well…”
Self assessment for the purpose of finding your highest leverage work in God’s kingdom.
-Leadership Style Skill Development Role Specific
“Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might!”
“If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously…”
Skill Development is role specific.
What roles do we want to focus on delivering skills to?
What competencies do we need each role to have?
Are there ways we can measure mastery of skills?
(currently or could be developed?) Character Formation Universal
“not many of you should presume to be teachers, my brothers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly.”
In the simplest terms, our character formation objective is FAITHFULNESS.
Faithfulness expressed by:
Courage Organizational culture is a function of our pervasive beliefs, values, attitudes and actions.
When YFC has a strong leadership culture, everyone:
Believes they are a leader
Values leadership multiplication – empowerment
Thinks like a leader
Acts like a leader
Is our culture presently a true leadership culture?
What changes do we need to make? Delivery Mechanisms YFC leadership development efforts should be:
Focused on outcomes Training Relationship Opportunity Self-Awareness Character Formation Skill Development Training
No major changes on the horizon for Leadership Blueprint, but we are introducing new systems for tracking, alignment, and hopefully to track outcome metrics as well. Relationships “as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another”
Skill and character development take place in both formal and informal relationships
What intentional relational structures are working well right now?
Any that are counterproductive or ineffective?
How can we set up FORMAL relationships for maximum impact?
Do we want a coaching structure in YFC? Opportunities
“the things you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also”
A systematic, integrated strategy to create progressively more significant and critical opportunities to lead in YFC will do three things for us
1.It will give our staff and volunteers the chance to stretch their wings and grow, becoming better leaders
2.Create open doors for more leaders to fill the opportunities – in this way, intentionally making leadership opportunities more accessible creates growth
3.It could help us retain hi potential leaders who would otherwise look outside our organization for their next steps Advanced Leadership Training
What new in-house trainings do we want to develop and/or resource?
What outsourced trainings do we want to embrace and/or resource? Plan Prioritization 20,000 leaders in authentic Christ-sharing relationships with 100,000 lost kids by 2015 Refers to or organizational culture and how we collectively recruit/attract new staff, train them to proficiency, establish career paths for their advancement, retain them and eventual succession planning. It has to do with how people accomplish YFC’s mission. Our goal is to configure YFC's resources in a way that creates the catalytic conditions for individual leaders to grow to their full potential.
YFC will attract, retain and deploy faithful, effective leaders who move the mission of YFC forward, and lead the kingdom of God. In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously.
