As a pastor or leader your primary role is to develop and disciple others.
More than simply “getting things done”, we are called to prioritize the growth and maturity of the people and leaders around us. We do this by learning particular skills and tools with which we can coach our leaders, our team, and those in our ministry.
One game-changing tool that I use to coach others is called the “Genogram”.
The genogram is a powerful visual map to document the history and dynamics of our family relationships and their impact on us, over three to four generations.
The reality is – if we don’t understand how we have been shaped by our families of origin, we carry vulnerabilities and blind spots with us into our work and leadership. Conversely, when we become aware of these things, it catalyzes discipleship at a whole new level.
In today’s episode, I share the 6 stages I use to coach other leaders through the Genogram so that you can do the same.
