“What’s Good About That?” by Dan Hotchkiss

As an advocate for asset-based leadership, I found the article by Dan Hotchkiss helpful.  As a pastor I believed in building on congregational strengths.  But was I asking the right questions?  The questions I might find myself asking: What’s working?  What’s satisfying?  What’s going well?  But was I asking the right questions?    I like the framework of the the question that Hotchkiss asks:  “What influence would we like our faith to have in the community today, and how can we gather a community of leaders who can make that happen?”  I encourage you to read the Alban Institute article:  http://www.congregationalconsulting.org/whats-good-about-that/
