On this episode of Group Answers, Brian, Chris, and Brandon talk about a few principles to follow as you train and coach new group leaders.
- New leaders need more direction than veteran leaders.
- Use multiple forms of communication. Communication level will decrease over time.
- Care for the heart as much as the hands (skills).
- Pray for and with your leaders often.
- Eat what you sell. Growing leaders grow leaders.
