Challenges and Solutions to Make Your Church More Effective Today – Part 3

Challenge three – Grown-up volunteering
Working with volunteers is very different from working with paid staff. Someone once said it was like the difference between a South American bolas and a set of planets around a sun. A bolas is a series of balls attached to a central point by rope, whereas planets only circle the …

A Beginner’s Guide to Managing Staff – Part 7: The Reprimand – John Truscott


This blog, the final one in this series, is a partner for No. 6 on encouragement. So I am still talking about 24/7 review.
I have seen it said, quite correctly, that bad management is to be criticised but never thanked. I would add that it is just as bad to be thanked but never criticised.
The …

A Beginner’s Guide to Managing Staff – Part 5: The Review – John Truscott


“Ah,” you say, “the dreaded annual appraisal”. To confirm your feelings, watch this clip (ignore the non-appraisal bit!):
And that’s what appraisal is all about for many line managers, with Christians being little different. Sad.
So let’s start again. I’ll avoid the A word and use the broader R one, Review. Here are four key points.

Review is …

A Beginner’s Guide to Managing Staff – Part 4: The Plan – John Truscott


This time I build on the three foundations of job description, person profile and employment terms to create a plan for the worker that will give them a right balance of challenge and support. Getting that balance just right is your responsibility. It will be different for each person you manage. No, not easy!
Personal aims
You …

A Beginner’s Guide to Managing Staff – Part 3: The Foundations – John Truscott


We’ve considered your attitude and personality. Now for something much more basic.
You cannot manage anyone if you do not understand what they are supposed to be achieving, the kind of person you need them to be, and the context of the employment agreement.
If you manage someone, your job is to ensure you both know these …

A Beginner’s Guide to Managing Staff – Part 2: The Manager – John Truscott


So you’ve started to tune your attitude to the correct frequency and you’re thinking ‘development’. Development of the worker, but also of the human being and Christian disciple.
But now we need to think about you. You simply cannot manage someone else until you are comfortable with the person God has made you.
When I started managing …

A Beginner’s Guide to Managing Staff – Part 1: The Attitude – John Truscott


Let’s admit it!  We’re not good at line managing staff in a church or Christian mission.
Too often I come across deep hurt or utter frustration.  Hurt is usually caused by mismanagement, frustration by the absence of management.
Of all the resources at your disposal, the most important, and the most expensive if they are paid staff, …
