Today, Pastor Gene and I are wrapping up our discussion about Team Church and our time with Pastor Kevin Gerald. We learned a lot about organizational alignment and hope you have as well!
Here are some of the main points we went over today.
A diverse organization drifts easily into a divided organization. This drift happens when subcultures develop. Subcultures arise when a team or individual believes the church exists to support them.
When an organization is in alignment, it will have diversity within a shared identity.
No alignment is better than partial alignment.
In healthy organizations, alignment is not based on agreement.
The three biggest things you can do to lead with alignment are:
Identify your organization’s culture and language.
Have a low tolerance for a disregard of the culture.
Celebrate and reward the people and the teams who model alignment within the culture.
