Fall 2017, Week 5

Hey leaders, we are in week five, and I hope your group is going great. This has been a very life-changing series for my group, and I hope it has been the same for yours. Hopefully you have received a call by now, but I want to remind you of the change this season with the addition of coaching for our leaders. We are asking that you use the grow model we have laid out, which will be the foundation for our conversations as the season goes on. The goal is that we will become more strategic and impactful as leaders, so in case you do not remember how we are using the model, I have it laid out below. 

·         G is the week’s Goals.  This is not something the whole group sits down and talks about; it is something you as the leader decides. For example, you might decide that this week you will get Eric more involved and comfortable by having Jose talk to him before group or by asking him his answer to the first ice breaker question. 

·         R is the Reality of the current situation.  You determine how far or close to the goal you are and whether the goal is achievable. 

·         O is for the Obstacles or Opportunities that currently exist.

·         W is the Way forward--the action steps for the week that you will follow up with next week. 

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or comments. Have a great group!
