New Design Team Established in Asia
As part of our Asia strategy, we have recently established a “Design Team.” This team consists of leaders, from around Asia, who have demonstrated that they have particular calling, gifting, and commitment to create holistic leader development design. There are three main goals for the team:
We have more than 30 leaders on the team who are already doing high-quality design in their own leader development work. Most are in their 20s and 30s and are intense and passionate about the team. Malcolm had his first meeting with the members of this team in March 2016. It was a highly productive time of deep thinking and design. Here are five specific things the team accomplished during this meeting:
So, in this first Design Team meeting we saw the creation of a model, a design, a song, a tool and a system!
There was a lot of excitement regarding this design team and Malcolm was deeply impressed at the ability of some of the members.
This design team is one of our next steps in Asia toward building high-level indigenous capacity to do holistic leader development. Our purpose in Asia has always been to nurture indigenous capacity. It’s a lot harder than simply giving them a series of courses to implement, but, in the long-term, it will be far more effective!
Please pray for our future meetings together with the design team and for the development of high capacity in team members!
