Today is a special and unique episode, listen to my conversation with a leader who is in his fifth decade of spiritual and organizational leadership. He can honestly say, each organization he has served was healthier when he left than when he started. Learn from his immense wisdom and listen to his personal challenge for you at the end of our conversation.

Organizations have seasons of growth and change. Through each season your leadership team needs a variety of competencies to help your organization thrive. Our guest today will help you understand the skills that you need to find and build into your leadership team. These principles apply whether you lead a small ministry or a large, complex organization. 

I’m delighted to welcome Jim Tomberlin who is the Multisite and Merger Strategist at The Unstuck Group. Jim has pastored churches in New Mexico and Germany, grown a megachurch in Colorado, and pioneered the multisite strategy for a megachurch in Illinois. He has been consulting and coaching church leaders in multisite strategy for more than 15 years.  

Welcome back, Jim.

What would happen in your organization if a top leader, as they say, was hit by a bus? Well, today we talk to a leader who was and lived to talk about it. Listen in as we learn how to prepare our organization for the next generation by investing in rising leaders.

Developing future leaders is an important part of any healthy organization and is core to long-term flourishing. Who is engaged in coaching the next generation of leaders for your organization? Does the process include a focus on spiritual maturity as well as leadership principles? We’ll address these topics and also consider fruitfulness in different seasons of life with our guest today.
