Episode 278: One-On-One Meetings

Time is a person’s most valuable resource, so don’t waste it.

In Episode 278 of the NewChurches Q&A Podcast, Daniel and Todd discuss one-on-one meetings with church staff, and how to utilize the time effectively. Here’s today’s question: 

I’m leading worship each weekend on the executive team and leading a staff of seven. I’ve been googling one on one meetings, and the info I find is pretty corporate. Do you have any resources or guides to share for quality one on one meetings within a church staff? 

In this episode, you’ll discover:

  • The difference between leader development and leadership development. 
  • A helpful meeting structure to make the most out of your one-on-one meetings.
