Does measuring performance have to import the world’s target culture obsessed with achievement? If we do measure performance, how do we avoid making people feel judged, driven and devalued? Is it really possible for leaders in any workplace to measure in ways that encourage human flourishing?
This event launches a new booklet by Paul Valler in the Grove leadership series: Using Measurement Well (focusing on purpose without damaging relationships). Paul reviews the theological arguments for and against measurement and explore how a biblical framework can help us to understand what ‘good’ looks like when measuring performance. Showing how the way we measure can improve our organisational culture, this is for leaders in all types of organisation.
Paul Valler is a former Finance and Operations Director for Hewlett-Packard Ltd. With over 25 years of church leadership experience, he is now a mentor for ministers and Christian business people.
This inaugural lecture is on the theme of ‘Creation Care’ and marks John Stott’s contribution to double-listening, to both the Word and the world. Organised by A Rocha International, in partnership with LICC. A Rocha UK, All Souls Langham Place and Langham Partnership International, it was held at ZSL London Zoo, near to where John Stott spent his childhood years.
Our desires and dreams are framed by certain ‘stories’ about what life should be, and some of today’s most persuasive cultural drivers – capitalism and consumerism – co-opt the Christian faith and church life as convenient ‘resources’ in a quest for personal fulfilment.
Changing culture is difficult in any organisation but healthy cultures tend not only to be good places to work but to yield better results over the long-term.
Chan Abraham’s Luminus Group has won a cabinet-full of awards for leadership, many ‘Employer of the Year’ accolades, as well as ‘Top CEO’, and twice hitting the number 2 spot in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For.
In this interactive seminar, Chan explores the Biblical roots that have shaped his leadership and the culture of the organisation, highlighting the areas of particular tension – mercy and discipline, performance and grace – and going on to offer a rich framework for leading change whatever your context.
At this evening event on 3 September 2013, encouraged us to reclaim the ancient and compelling vision of “the common good” – a vision not just of looking after ourselves and our nearest and dearest, but of really understanding that we are our neighbours’ keeper. This talk launched the publishing of Jim’s latest book, On God’s Side.
