Learning Objectives

This course is designed to provide every leader, regardless of his/her life-role or position, a better understanding of why our heart matters most in our leadership journey, what Jesus, the greatest leader of all time, teaches about the importance of the heart, and how we can practically embrace Jesus’ model of leading and influencing others in our day-to-day living. Upon completion, the participant should have a better understanding of why the heart of a leader matters, how to recognize a spiritually healthy and an unhealthy heart, and practical ways to lead with a healthy heart committed to the Father and not to the bottom line or selfish ambition.

Module Overview

Because we believe that successful leadership begins on the inside, this course is designed to intentionally focus on a leader’s heart motivation, our “why” first. Defining our “why” is not an easy task. It requires soul-searching, an understanding of one’s core life values and a desire for a destination that’s much more than pure profit or personal success. This course will explore critical questions every leader must answer, differences between a spiritually healthy and an unhealthy heart and how understanding and embracing our identity and an accurate self-awareness will make us much more effective influencers.

  • Successful completion and submission of five Reflection assignments demonstrating that the participant has read the required resources and reviewed the presentation content;
