It's never too late to be what you might have been.- George Eliot
A DREAM RELEASER is what I was built to be.
This is where I hear your dream, understand your vision and context and provide you with a customized blueprint to release your dreams.
All dream releasing entails different levels and consequences of change. I provide you with a detailed step-by-step change strategy.
I am a very "rich" man - blessed indeed! Rich in the sense that the Lord has allowed me to receive wide exposure to the Kingdom - and it is beautiful!
I've served thousands of ministries and non-profits in over 50 denominations - large and small in cross cultural settings. This has allowed me to see a cross section of the Kingdom that very few people are privileged to see.
This makes me a steward of assisting people with releasing their dream.
DEVELOPING: Training focuses on the task and is single-focused, whereas development focuses on the person and is multi-dimensional.
LEADERS: People who can see it (KNOW) pursue it on their own (GROW) and help others see it (SHOW).
REPRODUCING MORE LEADERS: A leadership culture with an action bias that makes leadership reproduction a natural process.
People want to know - "So, what do you do?" - I always answer by saying, "I'm a Dream Releaser." My primary purpose is to release the Senior Pastor's dreams. I help the Senior Pastor succeed - if the Pastor succeeds the church succeeds. If the Pastor's vision is fulfilled, the ministry is released - I help discover and strategically implement the Pastor's legacy.
My Consultations are broken into two phases - I and II.
In Phase I, take the corporate blood-pressure of the organization - a very detailed leadership capacity assessment to measure the infrastructure as it relates to the Senior Pastor's vision.
The organization must adjust to the Senior Pastors, CEOs and Executive Leaders vision not vice versa.
Meeting #1 - Senior Pastor and Dr. Sam Chand - 3 hours
Meeting # 2 - One-on-one personal meetings with the top 5-7 executive leaders on staff - 30 minutes each
Following this meeting, Dr. Sam Chand will present a full report which will include:
This detailed written report will be presented personally to the Senior Pastor and requires a 2-3 hour meeting with the Senior Pastor. At this meeting all issues raised in the report can be clarified and defined.
Cost for Phase I - TBD
If the Pastor sees worth in the Phase I report, then Phase II can begin.
Phase II is the implementation phase in which the report and other items are aligned and advanced on a predetermined ongoing basis.
The purpose of this process is to:
During Phase II, Dr. Sam Chand is available to the Senior Pastor for ongoing consultations via telephone, email, in-person etc.
Some of the issues Pastors contact Dr. Sam Chand about are:
Cost for Phase II: To be discussed at the conclusion of Phase I, because each church brings its own context and complexity. This is usually done with a monthly retainer.

A former president of Shell Oil Company once said,"This business of communicating has become as important as finding more oil". Regardless of our calling, the business of communicating is instrumental to your success.
For organizations, communication systems determine how readily ideas are shared. In his book Contemporary Business Communication, author Scott Ober writes, "Effective communication means motivating people, breaking down barriers and directing the flow of information and ideas that encourage people to think in new ways and to act more effectively."

Ronald A. Heifetz in Leadership Without Easy Answers speaks of a "Crisis in Leadership" by stating:
"Instead of looking for saviors, we should be calling for leadership that will challenge us to face problems for which there are no simple, painless solutions - problems that require us to learn new ways."
"In times of change, Learners inherit the earth, while the Learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists" - Eric Hoffer
"The future is not a result of choices among alternative paths offered in the present. It is a place that is created - first in the mind and the will: created next in activity." - Walt Disney
