Home Office Morale Busters: What Puts Staff on Edge

Marv Newell has personally visited more than 85 mission offices across North America. In so doing, he couldn’t help but notice that they come in all sorts and sizes, ages and make-ups. Despite their differences, there is one trait common to all: the discernable awareness of staff morale. Yet even that comes in a variety of manifestations. Some mission staffs have a noticeably strong level of enthusiasm, whereas morale in others is flat and perfunctory, with little zeal for the work. What’s the difference? The variance between a healthy, wholesome work environment, and one that is not can be measured by a tool he introduced in this webinar that is especially tailored to mission offices. It is hoped that many mission offices will use this tool to help improve their work environment. Although all will benefit, it is especially hoped that mission CEOs and HR directors will attend this webinar.

Dr. Marv Newell is Senior Vice President of Missio Nexus, a network of evangelical mission agencies, churches and training centers in North America. Previously he served as a missionary to Indonesia, as Asia-Pacific Regional Director with TEAM, as professor of Missions and Intercultural Studies at the Moody Theological Seminary, and director of a missions association. His newest book, Crossing Cultures in Scriptures is coming out the end of September. http://ivpress.com/crosscultureinscripture
