Generation Z tip of the week: Millennials are skipping entrepreneurship, but Gen Z is picking up their slack -- 72% of high schoolers want to start their own business someday, and 61% of college students would rather be entrepreneurs than employees, despite the clear difficulties they ecpect to face. For that means student leadership looks different, how we call them to invest in the ministry is of far greater value.  ARTICLE HERE

Topics for this episode:  

Leaving well (leaving a good taste in everyones mouth)

As you leave you will be remembered by your last month… regardless of how long you have been there, how great you were or how terrible you were.. your last month will say how you are remembered… .

7 things I would do when leaving somewhere

1. Tell your boss first.
2. Don’t go out burning bridges.
3. Don’t spend the next persons money.
4. Get all the passwords and log ins, subscriptions all together for the next person.
5. Write thank you notes, a lot of them, and meet with people.
6. Don’t take stuff. Leave things.
7. Encouragement and support is key for leaders and parents.

 

Starting somewhere new. (Cooking with Crisco)

You cant start at the new place where you left off at the old place.

7 things I would do when starting some where new.

  1. Who do I need to meet with?
  1. How we do currently communicate with leaders and parents?
  1. What do we do when a new kid shows up?
  1. What metrics do we track and how do we track it?
  1. Who are the volunteers?
  1. What is currently on the calendar? 
  1. What supplies and subscriptions do we have?

 

Extra thoughts.

-Take a week or 2 off in between if you can.

-Think about what you post at your new place.

-Work until your last day!
