Rocky Garza is a professional keynote speaker and experience creator. He has been speaking for the last 10 years and is committed to helping others understand what it means to be fully HUMAN.
Every day we have to-do lists, emails, ministry plans, and church growth goals; all while trying to maintain some sort of autonomy with our staff. With so much to do, it's easy for our conversations to get lost in the daily business of it all. Of course, to-do lists and sermon series matter, but not near as much as the people running them. I trust we care about our staff, but are we willing to take time to care for them as individuals? Are we willing to ask... "Why do you do what you do? How do you work best? How can I serve you?" People want to be cared about. They want to know you value them. And most importantly they want to know what God has designed them for in order to glorify Him most.
When we can provide our staff with the knowledge of who they are and the confidence to be fully present, we reveal the freedom of the gospel to live humbly and confidently in our pursuit to love others. We are all unique and created for a purpose. Identifying what makes us unique and understanding how to use it, that is where real life change can happen.
Team Identity Mapping is an 8 hour intensive experience that focuses on rebuilding the identity of the individual and strengthening the heart of a team.
We will work from the inside out, identifying the values of each individual (THE WHY), understanding the strengths (THE HOW) and guide the process of the self awareness (THE WHAT). We will then zoom out to the team as a whole to better understand how to use who we are as individuals to better serve one another and our ministry. By connecting the individuality of each person to the heart of the team, we create the platform for a truly great staff.
... the founder of Staff Retreat Co. It is a deep desire of mine to see individuals not only understand who they are, but more importantly how to use who they were created to be in order to glorify God most. I have spend 10+ years in ministry coaching, developing and lead others to a better understanding of who they are. Through Staff Retreat’s Signature Identity Mapping Process, I will lead you and your team to develop necessary processes for you to live out your life by using your inherent values and strengths. People are my greatest passion and I want to walk with you.
When I’m not at the office, I love hanging out with my wife Sara, little boy Ezra and Goldendoodle Samson in our amazing Oak Cliff neighborhood!
Listen, I am going to keep this short because I fully believe in this process and that Rocky is doing exactly what God created him to do. You have to take your team through Identity Mapping because you can't put a price tag on clarifying who you are and how that connects to what you do. When I was able to connect what I was put her to do to glorify God most, it was a game changer.
"Rocky's extraordinary gift of discernment and deep relational experience makes him an invaluable asset to any team leader wishing to care for the well-being of their employees. Every time we spend time with Rocky we leave with a better understanding of ourselves and each other... The trust he cultivates between us is the invaluable foundation for great collaborations within our team."
I really appreciated the way that Rocky led us to identify our strengths and overall identity. One highlight was the way that he was able to nuance our particular strengths and show what each person brought to the team. He as able to communicate some really insightful things not only to me but to the rest of our team as well. He helped me think through how the Lord has wired each member of my staff and I am grateful for that..
