Market Seventy: Reclaiming the marketplace

FastStart: Transformation Leadership

Why You Need It

You've already been in leadership for years and can probably write books on it. Market 70 challenges you to look at leadership in an entirely different way – leadership as part of a world-wide transformation movement. Your reach will quickly move beyond your own employees and customers to your industry, your city, your nation. By embracing Transformation Leadership, you will find yourself expanding your sphere of influence, and by so doing, accomplishing all that God has for you and your organization.

What It Is

Transformation leadership is moving an organization, its people and operations into God's big picture - His plans and purposes in an ever-widening sphere of influence, resulting in perfect alignment with God's eternal purpose. It is an intentional exercise of your organization's influence to bring light into the dark places of the world and draw all of God's creation in Kingdom relationship.

What You Have to Know

Transformation leadership is to be viewed as part of the larger picture of God's Kingdom expanding ever outward. It is not a process of bring the world into the Kingdom, but rather bringing the Kingdom into the world. This graphical representation describes both the form and the function of Transformation Leadership.

What You Have to Do

There are three major tasks for you to accomplish as you move on.
1. Pray for and record God's guidance on exactly what sphere of influence He is sending you into.
2. Clearly communicate with and equip your leadership team so that they step into your organization's call.
3. Plan out a clear path of interacting with your system to produce transformation based on your Spirit-Led Strategic and Marketing plans.

Transformation Leadership Teaching

God’s Tool for Reclaiming and Restoring Creation

Introduction

Hundreds of books have been written on Kingdom leadership or servant leadership. You have probably read several and there are more coming out every year. So, why not just read a few of those? Why this “course” on leadership? Why does Market 70 expect it has anything new or unique to offer? This short course is not meant to be a total guide to leadership but rather to set a framework for you to develop Transformation Leadership within your organization. As with the other steps in the Market 70 model, this is designed to bring you through practical steps to building what you need to complete the metamorphosis from wherever you are now to being a transformational organization. You will find that leadership in your company may not look very much like leadership in another organization – even in another transformation company.

Once you have discovered God’s specific blueprint for transformation leadership in your business, you can evaluate which leadership style inventories, books, and consultants will align with His plans and purposes for you and your organization. You will be able to build into your leaders with the best mix of materials on character traits, skills, techniques, etc. Don’t get ahead of yourself, though. Listen first to what God has in store for your transformation company and leadership. Then seek out resources to strengthen the leadership area.
