Before the-onsite assessment, significant work is done in preparation. Groups staff and other key leaders send in responses concerning their area of responsibility. Your team also collects varied documents pertaining to current and previous groups models used, training documents, examples of communication, job descriptions, and more. These will be reviewed before the on-site assessment.
The day(s) of the assessment is full of observations, interviews, and discussions. There will be “active listening” discussions specifically with Groups Staff, Executive Staff, and other Key Staff with decision-making authority in the groups ministry.
Within 72-hours of the assessment day, you will receive report presenting readable findings about next steps, strategic opportunities, affirmations, areas of improvement, and recommendations. This report will include “wins” that can take your church and small group strategy to the next level of ministry as well as critique of what might be holding your church back from growth. Based on this pertinent information, we will make recommendations and you can determine your next step and the level of coaching that Generis and Group Strategy Services can assist you.
