You could be in want of your team improve in their various departments, to an extent, you’ve attended seminars; read books, just to know the ‘how to.’ In this your want, you also likely want to manage them (i.e people). It is not possible! To an extent, to manage people is to motivate people, and it is such that you don’t do it directly “… Motivation always comes from within your employees, not from you.” Meaning that, motivation should come from your team (or congregation).

So how do you get your team not just motivated, but also motivate themselves? It is simply done by making or reaching agreements, and managing this agreements.

In essence, if you wish your team to improve, enter an agreement with them and with that comes motivation, and your goal to manage people is shifted to managing agreements.
