Modules

Lead Like Jesus

This module is designed to help the participant learn what is needed to develop the heart, head , hands and habits of a great leader with Jesus as the model. The readings, videos, and other materials are designed to help the participant uncover what might be keeping him/her from realizing full leadership potential while helping develop those skills and habits needed to become a leader who leads like Jesus. Lead Like Jesus' definition of leadership says that "anytime you influence the thinking, behavior or development of another person you are engaging in leadership." So whether you are a stay-at-home parent, a teacher, a CEO, an administrative professional, an electrician, a nurse, a coach or church leader, you are influencing the lives of others and that makes YOU a leader!...

Building Boards that Produce

Does your board produce? This module offers a framework for highly effective boards. It provides senior staff and board members (ideally together) insight on building board effectiveness and organizational productivity.

Any board can be a great board, but that greatness doesn’t arise from the individual talent of board members, or of the CEO or executive director. Great board performance requires a total system that transcends the sum of its parts. In this module, we also explore destructive board behaviors that can undermine productivity. This module will benefit all who desire an increase in their board's ability to focus and produce, and provide practical tips for specific board situations....
