Base Leadership Job Outcomes

Base Leadership Job Outcomes Questions

These guidelines have been approved by the GLT as a means of helping YWAM leaders and leadership teams to understand what outcomes (or results) they should be aiming for. No individual leader could satisfy the entire range of outcomes, but our objective is to develop teams that can aim for these standards. This is not a list of laws or requirements but the guidelines should be used to lead us into greater effectiveness. Each leadership quality listed is in alignment with YWAM Foundational Values and is consistent with the vision and goals into which we have been led. Please use these guidelines prayerfully and lovingly as a means of encouragement in your part of the family of ministries.

This document is designed as an evaluation tool to be used once or twice a year.
