I don’t know about you, but I love a good group exercise that will get a team talking about the way things are going. As we’ve talked about recently, it’s one thing to vaguely know that you’re not where you need to be. It’s an entirely different thing to acknowledge the truth about where you actually are.
Start by identifying a process that is part of the way your ministry functions. For example, you might think about the way you identify and recruit potential coaches.
In the stop quadrant, you’ll write down the aspects of your process that you know is not working and you just need to stop.
In the start quadrant, write down any new methods or ideas that you want to start.
In the tweak quadrant, write down steps that are working but aspects that need to be adjusted or changed slightly.
In the continue quadrant, write down the aspects of your current process that are working and just need to be kept intact.
The value is in thinking through the quadrants and talking about what fits where.
