In my investigations of church staffing and operations over the past few years one theme has emerged with worrying regularity: the poor quality of staff management.
This Article seeks to correct that by explaining seven areas that a good and creative staff line manager should pay attention to. They are as follows.
1 Attitude – clarifying what line management should be about: change
2 Analysis – understanding yourself and the one you manage as people
3 Foundations – clarity in job description, person profile, employment
4 Plan – personal aims, personal targets and your own commitment
5 Review – a range of ways to review their work and plan for the future
6 Encouragement – the vital need to build people up
7 Reprimand – its need, key principles and due process
