CREATING DISCIPLES: THE TRANSFORMATION OF EMPLOYEES INTO TRAINERS 1

After our class discussion and reading article “Creating Disciples” again, I have a better understanding of the process and importance of the training program, which is designed for developing and supporting employee trainers, but I still cannot completely agree with the authors’ model. Martin & Hrivnak (pg.614) are talking about turning novice employees into trainers if this employee feels strongly enough about the idea to volunteer to teach other employees. But they are not talking about rewards, recognitions or promotions.
According to Martin & Hrivnak (2009) an organization has to follow the “why” and “how” approach, and needs to understand the benefits and disadvantages between hiring an insider or an outsider to train others. Deciding which trainer to choose depends on the objectives of the program and how valuable they will be for an organization.
By turning employees into disciple trainers will benefit the company in many ways. The insiders are cost-effective for the company. Also, training process can be easier because trainers will be accepted by their peers, which will lead to a comfortable work environment. Trainers can relate to other employees because they are already in the culture, they already went through the learning process and will be able to teach and train. They have organizational specific knowledge, tacit knowledge, and skills. And in addition, they will be available to help trainees with any questions at all the time.
On another hand, the outsiders in the article are professional trainers or “wizards” and they are identified as a company’s…...

Can One Totally Avoid Being a Disciple

...Can One Totally Avoid Being a Disciple? Disciples are not only found in the time of Jesus. Though we know of the main twelve disciples, they are not the only one in the world today. A disciple can be described and defined as a student in communion with others, striving for a closer relationship with god, who is given the courage to serve. With that definition we can also draw many specific characteristics that a disciple should have. One of the main things disciples must do is to answer the call of Jesus. There are also may other categories for disciples to fit into, such as being called to take risks, called to a community called to make a difference, called to a community, called to make a difference, called to be compassionate and called to work for justice. However we are not talking about how one can be a disciple, we are talking about how an individual may avoid being a disciple for whatever reason they choose. It seems the easiest way to avoid being a disciple is to simply not be a part of the faith. Since the definition of a disciple clearly states that they must be striving for a closer relationship with god, once God is taken out of the equation, it seems there is no way to be a disciple after that. One the other hand, if one were Christian and wanted to avoid the lifestyle of a Christian he would have to elude mainly the defining characteristics rather than the idea of Jesus as divine himself. One would have to want little to nothing to do with their Christian...

Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurial Organization: In (Metaprofiling, 2013)1 study about the entrepreneurial organizations they differentiated between two concepts, entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial organization. Successful entrepreneurs are opportunists who, through their creativity, drive and vision, create economic or social value. They challenge conventional wisdom by practicing disruptive innovation — innovation that creates new markets through the application of a different set of values. They change the rules of the game by questioning the status quo and upping the stakes. It follows that an entrepreneurial organization can be defined as: An organization that places innovation and opportunism at its heart in order to produce economic or social value. However, for many organizations, this is only a brief moment in their evolution. And according to (Rodrigues et al,2003)2 entrepreneurial organizations, in fact, reflect the basic characteristics of its leadership.

Creating a Methodology

... Creating a Methodology Nicole Barrett Professor C. Lodge BUS 375 October 18, 2014 Creating a Methodology In the 1900s Methodology was a system to help streamline projects to eliminate redundancies and make processes more efficient. The system included project management, total quality management, concurrent engineering, and scope change control and risk management. In the twenty century, methodology has the same results; to make processes more efficient however some of the processes have changed. The twenty-century processes are supply chain management, business processes, feasibility studies, cost-benefit analyses (ROI) and capital budgeting. Regardless of the changes in the processes, the end result is to streamline the process, reduce paperwork and eliminate duplications. Methodology has been known to lower cost and improve customer satisfaction. Based on the case study titled “Creating a Methodology”, the executive staff had many concerns about implementing an enterprise project management methodology (EPM). The executive staff knew it was necessary to continue to compete in the request for proposal (RFP) process. In addition this was a requirement from corporate to implement a methodology. The employees of the company had a routine way of doing things and they did not like a change. This was a clear indication of a company with employees whose vision is low whose believes were based on their powers and not the goals of the organization. The company headed by the...

John the Disciple Whom Jesus Love

...The Loyal Disciple whom Jesus Loved I John was the only disciple who was with Jesus Christ from the beginning of his ministry, present during His crucifixion and witness to His Resurrection completely. I am the only Disciple that did not run away or hide from authorities when the times of persecution and conviction came from the Roman oppressor’s and the Jewish Pharisees and Sadducees. I remained loyal to Our Lord, and was loved greatly by Him. I John lived a long life, and died a natural death. I am the son Zebedee the brother of James. I am a fisherman with both my father Zebedee and brother James, (Matthew 4:21; Mark 1:19) my brother and I were partners with Simon Peter as fishermen. (Luke 5:10-11). I was chosen by Jesus Christ to be a disciple along with my brother James after Peter, and his brother Andrew, (Matthew 10:2). My brother and I surnames mean (Boanerges), which is the sons of thunder (Mark 3:17). When it came time for Jesus to go to Jerusalem, Jesus sent messengers to enter into a village of the Samaritans to make ready for Him. The Samaritans did not receive Jesus. I John along with my brother James saw this and asked Jesus My Lord if they should command fire to come down from heaven and consume them like Elias did. It was at this point I was rebuked and Jesus told me the Son of man did not come to destroy men’s live, but to save them. (Luke 9:51-56).

...CREATING A METHODOLOGY BUS 375 Week 2 Assignment Professor Christopher Hase By: Nicole Brevard 07/11/2015 There were two contributing factor that stood out that surrounded the corporate culture that were at play that contributed to the executive staff waiting so long to develop an Enterprise Project Management Methodology. The first contributing factor was the executives were afraid of losing their power and authority they had. I believe they knew by developing a Enterprise Project Management Methodology, that only one executive would be in charge and more powerful than the other executive's. The executives new at some point they would have to do it, but what they did not understand is by not developing an Enterprise Project Management Methodology they were putting the company’s growth and competitiveness in jeopardy. The second contributing factor was the executives had no clue on were to begin with developing an Enterprise Project Management Methodology. The executives were so afraid of who was going to be in control that they really never thought it out. The executive staff recommended 12 life cycles which would have increased paper work and less time to manage the project. A consultant was called in to assist them in creating an Enterprise Project Management Methodology explaining the pros of having. My recommendation for Mr. John Compton and his executive staff is that the Project Management office should not report to the CIO. My reasoning is the......

Ttaylor Disciple Making Plan

... bit of our energy, effort and finances went into keeping the building standing. In August of 2013 God allowed me to go to the congregation to cast the vision of relocation to another location that would be conducive for ministry. On 6-24-14 we sold our old building and purchased our new building twice the size of what we had and for the first time in the churches 32-year history became debt free. This experience has allowed the congregation and I to develop a bond and trust and now seek to grow in discipleship for ourselves and to disciple others. We have begun small groups as the church has begun to grow dramatically. Within these small groups we have become relational as trust and bonds have begun. Lastly we have become missioned going after the lost though outreach and evangelism whenever and wherever we can. This shift from a building ministry to Kingdom Building Ministry has the church excited for the work of Christ and discipleship. Vision—What is your vision for ministry? Who are you focusing on? What regions, demographics, groups, ages, etc., are you to aiming to reach and disciple? The vision for the Hebron Baptist Church is to “Go after the lost, wherever they may be found, Reach, Teach, Preach.” Our scriptural basis is “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end......

In the tales of Woe at concord bookshop,64 year old independent store regarded as one of the best in New England, faced clashes between owner and staff. The clash appeared to be rooted in finances. The owners of the concord bookshop implemented some changes to the organization without effective change process, and the staff totally resisted to these changes. "A dynamic competitive environment prompts organizational leaders to alter their strategies ,that process of strategic renewal place new expectations on employees at all levels "(spector 2010) Knowing that not all staff would take change positively. In the Tales of Woe at Concord bookshop the owner felt the need for change to regain financial status .However, they failed to involve the staff when this matter came up,Here they failed to complete the strategic renewal phase.
