I am twenty eight years old, and I need to develop into the leader that God has designed me to be. This Leadership Development Plan (LDP) will be the tool I use to grow as a leader in my future ministry contexts based on my personality, gifts, and learning styles.
This plan was developed in a class I took with Aubrey Malphurs, Ph.D. at Dallas Theological Seminary. Even though this plan might be personal I hope it can serve you as a sample to help you create your own leadership development plan.
A. My Design
1. My Divine Design
According to Andrew Seidel’s book, Charting a Bold Course, my DISC personality profile labels me as a High S. S stands for “Steadiness” which means that I act patiently, want routine, fear change, and respond with nonparticipation.(p. 79) This is good because it means when heading in the direction I think God wants me to go in, I will not give up easily.
