Measuring Leader Effectiveness Collaboratively

Evaluation of clergy leaders is often a formal process that engenders a measure of self-justification and anxiety among those being evaluated, because there is an inherent sense that the purpose is to determine where the leader has failed or fallen short of expectations. However, when both the evaluators and the persons being evaluated recognize that we grow by experience and through our experiences become more effective, the process can become a means of assessing the ministry of both the clergy and congregation for their combined effectiveness in meeting the ministry goals and interests of the worship community. Read more about effective evaluation processes and procedures in the article, Measuring Ministry, from Faith & Leadership. A companion piece that details the process of evaluating organizational success collaboratively is also available.
