“I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.” (Romans 12:3)
There are two types of parish council self-assessments; 1) the individual parish council member self-assessment where a member evaluates their own performance in office and 2) the general parish council self-assessment where each member evaluates the performance of the entire parish council as a whole. Both are useful and valuable for nominations, board development, self-examination, performance enhancement, retreat and strategic planning exercises, etc. The document below answers frequently asked questions pertaining to the general parish council self-assessment. This may be useful in explaining the assessment instrument to parish councils that have never undertaken one before.
