As you all know, here at The reThink Group, we like to do a lot of . . . well . . . rethinking.
Not only that, but we want to do everything we can to equip you as a leader.
So in the next few weeks, you will see some new stuff!
The resource library we now call YouLead . . . will be changing names to Stuff Leaders Want.
Along with the name change, we are going to be changing the names of the categories. Here is a breakdown, we are hoping these new categories will help you navigate the library of resources more easily.
STUFF TO GET STARTED
Not sure where to get started? We have provided you with multiple plans to help you get the most out of these resources—for those who want to grow personally as a leader, to those who are looking to introduce the Orange Strategy.
STUFF FOR THIS WEEK
We are constantly writing, recording and researching to provide you with new resources every week. Each week, we will upload stuff for you, stuff for your volunteers and stuff for the parents in your church.
STUFF FOR PARENTS
Messages and images that inspire parents. Stuff for Parents gives you tools to cue parents in your church. We have created messages and images that will help you strategically connect with parents on a weekly basis.
STUFF FOR VOLUNTEERS
Messages and images that inspire volunteers. Stuff for Volunteers gives you tools to connect weekly with your volunteers through social media and email. We have created messages and images that will help your volunteers learn, live, lead and laugh. Plus, these pieces will help you stay connected and cast vision!
STUFF THAT’S FOCUSED
A collection of media tools focused on a core topic. You will find resources for you and your team, including book previews, podcasts, videos and case studies along with prewritten emails to send to your volunteers—all centered around a topic, like: creating a family experience, developing a small group culture and focusing your message.
STUFF TO HEAR
Selected messages from ministry experts. These are featured podcasts from Orange Events that will help answer specific questions you have in ministry. For example: How do I create an environment on a budget? How do I make a big impact on families with special needs? How do I recruit and retain great volunteers?
STUFF TO READ
Executive Summaries and Case Studies. We are learning from the best! Stuff to Read provides you with case studies and best practices from organizations such as Pixar, IKEA and Zappos that have relevant application to your family ministries. Also, we provide Book Previews of titles like The Way We’re Working Isn’t Working, Choosing to Cheat and Switch to help you sharpen your leadership skills and be on the cutting edge.
STUFF TO WATCH
Strategic presentations to train teams. Stuff to Watch is designed to help you become more effective in your presentations to leaders and volunteers. It provides you with a graphic package and/or audio or video file to help you enhance your PowerPoint or Prezi presentation. In some cases, we will even include a complete Prezi presentation—a cloud-based presentation and storytelling tool for exploring and sharing ideas on a virtual canvas.
As if that wasn’t enough, we have a few more tools to make finding all this great stuff a lot clearer.
