Ellis Goldstein: Checking Your MPD Pulse: Creating Reports and Systems to Ensure Staff Remain Financially Healthy

The late Howard Hendricks, the much beloved “Prof” from Dallas Theological Seminary used to say, “If you aim at nothing, you’ll hit it every time.” If you want to know how healthy your staff are in their MPD, you need systems and processes that objectively measure the MPD health of your staff. If we say we care about our staff members, then we need to know how they are doing in their fund-raising efforts. How do you know when someone is at a critical level of support and needs to focus upon their support? The answers for the well-being of your staff cannot be subjective. Join Ellis Goldstein as he looks at some objective systems and processes to help you get a handle on your staff’s MPD health.
