7 Habits of Highly Effective Small Group Leaders

April 8, 2013

I’m sitting here at Simone’s Coffee Shop in Ventura, California sipping my Butterscotch Toffee Coffee (stop judging me).

As both a long-time fan of Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and a long-time small group advocate, I thought I’d combine both worlds.

7 Habits of Highly Effective Small Group Leaders:

1. Commit to personal growth – authentically share what God is teaching you

2. Pray for group members regularly – rally around people during tough times

3. Celebrate together – regular, fun, social activities

4. Contact group members weekly – let people know they were missed

5. Be prepared – success or failure is often determined before the group meets

6. Share leadership – since life change requires sustainability, effective leaders invite someone to co-lead

7. Mentor a new leader – formal or not, find someone in your group you can help take a step toward increased leadership

What group leader habit would you add?
