Every person has strengths. But do the people in your life know theirs … and understand how to use them?

You can help those around you understand and use your strengths together. Invite one of the speakers from the Ministry Insights team to share about leading from your strengths with your group at one of these events.

Different By Design

A Different By Design event equips Christian couples like you to take this step – to discover and use your God-given strengths in your marriage, to value your spouse’s strengths, and to blend. Your day will be filled with insightful teaching, experiential exercises, and meaningful discussions that will strengthen your marriage relationship.

What You Learn

Every couple faces four inescapable areas of differences: problem solving, processing information, managing change and facing risk. These areas seam to drive a wedge in more relationships over time than any other. The conference will open your eyes to God divine design for differences. Together you’ll learn how to use your personal strengths to –

  • Design effective communication strategies
  • Problem solve more effectively
  • Exchange information that is meaningful and practical
  • Balance the scales of a transitioning home environment
  • Work together when making decisions

Format

This event is normally hosted by a local church and presented on a Saturday (8 AM – 5 PM) with an onsite break for lunch. If Different By Design is to be conducted as a small group study series at your church, you can host a kick-off event on a Saturday morning lead by a certified practitioner.

A facilitator guides your staff or team to build understanding about each member’s unique strengths, discovering how to value and blend their strengths. Then, your team transitions from learning to application. Prior to your event, each member completes a Leading From Your Strengths profile. During your event, members build on the insight from the profile reports.

What You Learn

  • Biblical Foundation: your group examines God’s design for differences
  • Self-Understanding: each participant discovers his natural strengths.
  • Team Understanding: members recognize the unique qualities and strengths in other participants.
  • Communication: the team learns to interact in the group productively with fewer conflicts.
  • Cohesiveness: the group works to blend member differences to bring out each others’ strengths.
  • Efficiency: members increase overall team effectiveness.
  • Problem-Solving: members acquire a new approach to team problem-solving.
  • Application: your team adopts “C.L.E.A.R.,” a 5-step learning process that equips members to transfer information to application.

The Format

This event is normally hosted by a team leader, pastor, or manager and presented to a team at a time which best fits the organization’s schedule.
