Developing Core Leaders and Making Real Disciples

(episode notes)

Level One: The INSPIRATION Stage [12:51]

Level Two: The IGNITION Stage [19:25]

This is the “Life Passion” zone. As leaders we must help people discover their passion zone and make the commitments that will lead them to their life purpose.

Level Three: The INSIGHT Stage [22:03]

(Listen to this point at [22:03])

This is the “Life Development” Zone where the strategic design, knowledge, skills, and paths are forged.

(Listen to this point at [27:50])

This is where the actions, practices, and habits are executed and established. Implementation is the going, the doing, the action. We’ve not developed leaders or made disciples until we have implementors. Here’s the thing… we have to teach, mentor, coach, and release.
