The ConneXions Model of Healthy Leader Development is a comprehensive framework that describes how Jesus, Paul, and other early church leaders invested intentionally and holistically in the lives of other people to build them into effective and fruitful leaders.
Developed over two decades by Malcolm Webber, Ph.D., ConneXions is used extensively as a leader development paradigm in churches, church movements, and church-planting ministries in many nations.
The 5C Checkpoint™ provides a holistic and wide-ranging evaluation of every aspect of a leader’s life and ministry; thus the indicators are divided into five sets (one set for each "C").
A healthy Christian leader knows the purpose of God and presents it with credibility, clarity and passion.
The 5C CheckPoint™ is based on biblically-based indicators of leadership health that address spiritual, relational, character, vision, and competency aspects of a leader's life.
The 5C CheckPoint’s survey is extremely useful for anyone to evaluate themselves. Using 5C CheckPoint Personal, you can clearly see areas of strength in your life, as well as opportunities for growth and improvement.
With 5C CheckPoint 360° Plus, the quality and strength of the evaluation is significantly increased with the addition of multiple raters for each participant. In addition to self-evaluation, each participant is evaluated by a number of friends, family, teammates, ministry associates, etc., resulting in a very clear and honest assessment of his or her leadership health.
In addition to indicators, numerous open-ended questions are included to provide raters with the opportunity to clearly share their thoughts about the participant's strengths and areas for improvement. All survey responses are anonymous and confidential.
The 5C CheckPoint™ also provides a unique way to assess the effectiveness of leader development programs, training programs, and personal growth programs. You can use the CheckPoint at the start of a program to establish a baseline for the participants, and then use it again at the end of the training. You can assess the changes in the lives and ministries of the participants, providing valuable insight as to the effectiveness of the program or training.
