Our appreciative way of search consulting uniquely blends Appreciative Inquiry, Assessment Center Technology, the change work of Milton Erickson, and Theological Reflection.
We have provided consultation to congregations and adjudicatories as they have searched for new leaders. Together Rob and Kim Voyle co-authored Assessing skills and Discerning Calls a comprehensive, appreciative inquiry based manual for the search process.
We provide the following coaching and consultation services to congregations as the search for a new leader.
- Designing a Transitional Ministry to Support the Search
- Conducting Appreciative Inquiry Summits
- Creating Strategic Vision and Goals
- Creating Search Criteria
- Establishing Candidate Assessment Procedures
- Creating Exercises to Aid the Discernment of a Call
Contact Dr, Rob Voyle to discuss your search needs.
