Leading From Your Strengths: Building Intimacy in Your Small Group

silhouette of hikers looking at mountain faceBeing part of a small group can be a bit like climbing a mountain—it has risks but the payoff is immense. That is why this second book in the Leading From Your Strengths® series compares the journey of building intimacy in your small group to a mountain climbing expedition.

Just like climbing Mount Everest, climbing the mountain to intimacy in your small group involves five stages, or camps.

You begin at your “base camp” of commitment, and then move through the various stages of honesty, acceptance, closeness, and finally reach the mountain’s peak of intimacy. The Ministry Insights team is your expedition guide on your climb as you learn to leverage your strengths for effective and successful small group experiences.

Why Use This Book for Your Small Group?

Leading From Your Strengths: Building Intimacy in Your Small Group provides a road map to building closeness, trust, and strong relationships in small groups. It is for both leaders and group members. As with the other books in the Leading From Your Strengths® series, the book draws on how each individual offers strengths to the group, how members can learn to value others’ strengths, and how groups can blend together to make a stronger whole.

The book includes a biblically-based, 4-week study for groups to inspire discussion and implement principles.

Use it to understand each other

Group members gain a detailed understanding of their individual God-given strengths and each others’ strengths, increasing a deeper appreciation for each other.

Use it to understand how your group fits together

Groups find out how their strengths complement one another and learn ways to motivate each other. Many groups also uncover the ideal ministry environment to serve effectively together.

Use it to learn to communicate better

Groups can compare ways each member gives and receives communication best and put those skills into practice. Better communication leads to trust and deeper intimacy.

Use it to manage conflict

As group members understand their strengths and value others, they learn to appreciate each person’s uniqueness. Groups discover how to increase their productivity with accurate expectations.

Members can also individually purchase Leading From Your Strengths Profiles in order to gain even further insights on their strengths and how to draw on them in a group setting. Teams may choose to use the Leading From Your Strengths Teambuilding Kit to develop further
