What To Do When The Changes Needed Are Overwhelming

If you are like me you want to see consistent improvement in your organization.  Sometimes I can be overly critical because I have such high hopes and expectations for us as a church.  At times I can become a bit overwhelmed with all the things I think need to be tweaked, completely overhauled or killed altogether.

When those times occur, if a leader is not careful, the burden of trying to change too much at once can actually have the reverse impact. Nothing gets changed, everything stays the same, and the organization suffers.  The leader cannot get everything accomplished so nothing gets accomplished.

Here is an easy solution to the sense of overwhelming need for improvement  in an organization:

Concentrate on one needed change, work to get that change implemented, then move to another change.

Sounds simple, but it will dramatically improve your success rate…and your organization.

What is the ONE change for improvement you need to get started on today?

  1. Before any change should be implemented, the Godly leader must make sure it’s a change directed by the Head of the Church, not just “change for change’s sake.”

  2. definitely needed this as I head into my new position as Children/Youth Director. The ministry has been in decline for some year

  3. This is exactly where I’m at with my church. We’re in the middle of some huge leadership changes because the elder board realized we were headed in the wrong direction. So I’ve been working hard to make some significant changes. Like you said, I’ve been trying to do 10 things, so none of them actually get done.

    Really is so simple yet so true.
