Leadership Training Doesn’t Work | Inner Revolution

Geoff Surratt blogged this keen insight —

Last week I had this theory confirmed from two directions. On Thursday I participated in an online gathering around the topic of campus pastor development. I shared the fantastic campus pastor class we created at Seacoast that didn’t develop a single campus pastor. The other consultant in the meeting shared the exact same experience. Her church had, simultaneously to Seacoast, developed a brilliant educational program for potential campus pastors. Their success rate was also zero. Two programs developed separately by two successful multi-site churches with a net outcome of zero.

The second confirmation came from Marcus Buckingham at the Chick-fil-a Leadercast. I wasn’t able to attend, but my wife shared that Buckingham’s research shows that leaders aren’t developed through leadership training classes. Concepts are shared, but leaders aren’t created.
