Steph interviews Jo on the role of sacrifice in her leadership journey. Listen in to hear Jo discuss the sacrifices she has faced since her earliest leadership, as a single in her twenties and as a woman and mother leader as well as some of the sacrifices universal to us all.

Welcome to season 6! In this series ‘Tools of the Trade’ - there will be some tools to help with the ‘how’ of leadership.

 

Today’s tool: SWOT Analysis: which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats. It is a diagnostics tool to help us examine our lives and be intentional going forward.

 

You can see this episode as a video (with whiteboard explanation) at: https://youtu.be/jCJ-O1nCYyk

 

SWOT axis: 

Battles: Internal strength but external frustrations

Failures: Internal and external weaknesses.

Frustrations: External strength but internal weaknesses.

Breakthroughs: Where we are in a place of strength internally and externally.

 

How about getting together with another friend or two and doing this tool together? You can ask those hard questions and keep one another accountable!

 

Discussion questions:

1) Looking at your SWOT analysis, what is God’s invitation in order to more towards breakthrough in any given area?

2) How do you approach failure? Are you able to detach your identity from them and see them objectively? Are you able to take them to the cross and allow God to resurrect them?

3) Steph talked about breakthroughs starting with a breaking.  Where have you been broken in the past season that you can, with faith, look for God to bring breakthrough in this season?
