The biggest challenge many leaders face today is the lack of time to step back and reflect. With thousands of complications demanding their time, problem solving and decision-making can allow leaders to lose focus on what is most important.
Do you feel like you continually fight against the lone-ranger style of leadership? Do you experience burnout and frustration at times? At some point along your leadership journey, perhaps you question what you are doing and why you are doing it. Maybe you feel like you’ve lost that sense of passion and purpose you once had. Perhaps you stay awake at night overwhelmed by the demands for your time and you’ve lost sight of what’s most important.
We believe that leadership is a lonely place, but it doesn’t have to be. The Roundtable of Faith serves to help Christian leaders tackle challenges and problems together in a safe place where women can lean on each other, give advice and share their faith in a peer-to-peer mentoring environment. If you join the Roundtable of Faith, you will become the best version of yourself and you’ll help others do the same.
The Roundtable of Faith consists of 8-12 members. It provides facilitation, teaching, mentoring, resources and practical tools to inspire growth and to maximize the potential of the leaders in the group for greater kingdom impact within their spheres of influence.
When you take advantage of Full Supply’s Roundtable of Faith, you will benefit for the following reasons:
- Accountability and Support: An important part of leadership is accountability and support. Since a Christian’s leadership role can be isolating, members of the group become faith advisors. A close bond is formed in a safe, confidential environment where members can share challenges, best practices and foster mutual support and learning.
- Avoid Tunnel Vision: By interacting and sharing challenges, the group is almost certain to provide a solution, idea or connection. Members learn the value of embracing differing perspectives, which challenges them to think outside their “norm” when considering another approach to a problem and its resolution.
- More Tools in the Ministry Toolbox: Members bring a broad range of abilities and experiences within the group. Therefore, these members learn from each other and have a shared interest in leadership development in order to better prepare, react and lead through difficult situations.
- Synergy and Celebration: A group of like-minded women work together to achieve more. The group needs you, just as you need them. Having a team that understands you and celebrates your wins boosts your confidence and energizes you to become the best version of yourself.
- A Shared Leadership Journey: Once you are involved, the feeling of “being alone,” as a leader is gone. Being a part of a group will truly help you learn how to have the mind of Christ. The feedback offered helps to encourage each other continue working toward ministry excellence and develop ideas toward transforming lives.
If there weren’t challenges, we’d have little need for leaders.Mark Sanborn
I discovered that good leadership is more than just getting the job done; better leadership is that which is challenged and grows in a safe peer setting.Connie Menser
