Developing Self-Awareness as a Church Communicator

Developing Self-Awareness as a Church Communicator

December 17, 2015 by

Church communicator and Certification Lab instructor Phil Bowdle talks about taking time at the end of the year to assess yourself and your team. Self-awareness can help you understand how you work and how your team works so you can go to the next level.

This is one of the topics covered during our Certification Lab.

Learn the things you need as a communicator, but also be aware of the things that will hold you back.

Watch as Certification Lab instructor Phil Bowdle talks about self-assessment:

“A value that I think is important for all of us is self-awareness. There are some great tools out there to get to know how you’re wired, get to know your strengths and your weaknesses. I’ve learned from our pastor, Brian, this rhythm of at the beginning of every year doing some assessments to get to know yourself and the things about you that will help you succeed or hold you back.” -Phil Bowdle
