How to Handle a Staff Member Resigning – FREE Checklist

StaffResignationChecklist-200x200One of the most difficult situations you’ll ever face in leading a church staff is when someone resigns.

I’ve learned from my own personal experience at The Journey that whether it’s a “good” resignation or a “not so good” one, it’s almost always emotional.

And it’s easy to miss important steps in the process if you’re not prepared ahead of time.

At The Journey, we’ve developed a “staff resignation checklist” that we use to make sure nothing is forgotten in the transition that could come back to hurt the church, the remaining staff or the outgoing staffer.

There’s no need for you to make the same mistakes I’ve made, so…

TODAY I’d like to give you a FREE Download of The Journey’s “Staff Resignation Checklist,” to insure that you’re ready to respond when you have to deal with a staff member leaving:

No one likes to deal with this sort of thing – it hurts on multiple levels! But by downloading this simple document, reviewing it and saving a copy for future reference, you’ll prepare yourself and protect your church should the time come.

And don’t let the fact that it’s short (and painfully practical) keep you from seeing the benefit. Miss any step on the checklist and you’ll regret it later (the consequences can be painful and costly to you and your church).

I don’t want you to be caught unprepared, so take a moment now to grab your copy – it only takes a few seconds to download.
