Suddenly, there is a Covenant Life Production Teams Staff. What used to be me, a part-time secretary, and a pile of volunteers has exploded to four full-timers and the still-necessary pile of wonderful volunteers.
Since I started at the church five years ago, I've always had the title "Manager." Honestly, that title came by process of elimination. I wasn't a secretary. I wasn't a pastor. So I became a "manager."
Now, however, I actually have a staff to manage. I'm loving the change because I have more people to help me, and I need it - just ask them! At the same time I have more people looking to me for daily assignments, direction, leadership, and priorities. So this is what it's like to be a manager!
I'll soon share some of the things I'm attempting to do to manage my staff, but - since I'm the newbie - I wanted to hear from you first.
What are your best management tips?
