AD/ MD Boot Camp, May 2018, Macedonia

AD/MD Boot Camp, May 28-29, 2018, Macedonia

Participants: Andy Spradley, Brian Stout

Facilitators: Philip Jackson, Ken Guenther, Warren Janzen

Preparatory work for participants:

  1. Review our SEND U onboarding process for new ADs/MDs. Please read through this process, and we will discuss how it applies to you at the boot camp.
  2. Do a DiSC self-assessment called Everything DiSC Work of Leaders. It focuses on leadership for a group. It will help you learn your leadership style and your top three leadership priorities (vision, alignment, and execution) and how your personality profile impacts these three. Ken has sent you a link to this assessment.
  3. Do a free Strengths test if you have not done the StrengthsFinder test in the past.
  4. Do a self-assessment based on the AD profile. The AD/MD profile is a one-page description of the skills and character traits of an ideal area/ministry director in SEND International. None of the field leaders match this description perfectly. It is not a description of qualifications needed to become an AD but rather a description of the areas we want to develop. This profile gives both you some targets for growth and development.

Print out your self-assessments and bring them with you to the first session on Monday, May 28.
