Assist the Organization(Church, para-church, and for-profit organizations)
Failure comes in many forms regardless of status or background. Currently leadership failure is dealt with in a number of ways. Some organizations simply banish the leader and send him away with a brief comment and no further explanation. Others have an outside leader come in to set things in order. Still others have the leader stand up and confess in great detail of his or her sin. Some begin a restoration process well but because they lack the expertise and support to see it through to completion. The pressure of perceived urgency often contributes to an effort to achieve a rapid conclusion which short cuts necessary steps. In cases where a leader is very gifted there can be focus on restoring the “ministry” rather than a concentrated focus on restoring “the person” first and foremost. If the process is not completed it leaves the failed leader and the organization impaired to fulfill their God given destiny. And the organization if they had followed the right process could have healed and even move forward stronger than ever before.
It is our conviction that a successful model for the integrity of leaders and recovery and restoration of fallen leaders will consist of four unique parts, the second of which is Assisting the Institution.
Giving the organization practical biblically sound principles and action oriented strategies distributed through a variety of means.
In many cases the institution does not have the expertise or objectivity to deal with this type of situation. The cost of leadership failure is enormous. There is a spiritual cost, emotional cost, financial cost, relational cost and a cost to the reputation of the organization in the community and beyond. We begin by providing counsel to the leadership of the institution. If needed we can provide materials that give a biblical response to failure and restoration.
We have found that in the business world although the ramifications may be somewhat different the organization can be deeply impacted as well: Issues such as shareholder value, employee morale, cynicism in the workplace, decline in competitive ability, loss of leadership capability, etc.
