Ravenyard Priorities Assessment - Growth


GROWTH - a progression from simpler to more complex forms; the process of something becoming bigger, more developed, or of greater importance; (improvement, evolution, maturation, advancement).

Crisis is an incredibly catalytic agent of change and potential growth. It upends the status quo and shakes our identity. How we adapt and make meaning from crisis is up to us – it’s a choice to face suffering, ask hard questions, and decide who we want to be moving forward.

Fear often holds us back from growth.  Understanding our fears and knowing the ways they can paralyze us is the first part of  choosing to grow.  It can also be useful to identify teachers, mentors, and professionals (therapists, personal coaches, clergy) who can help guide the process of growth.


Leaders are easily trapped in settings where people stop telling them the truth.  When growth is a priority, leaders seek open feedback, explore their blind spots, and welcome expert opinions.
