It is a life-impacting experience.” Global Nomad
The Leadership Matters course focuses on seven key elements of leadership.
1.Gaining an understanding of what Vision is. The importance of living with vision and the ‘how to’ of seeing a vision develop in both your personal life and ministry. An important aspect of this is to have the ability to lead your team to do ‘Creative thinking’ together and to have the tools for times of vision giving, refreshing and energizing solitude.
2.Developing skills in the area of Communication. A leader does not only need a vision, but also needs to be able to communicate that vision. Workshops in Public Relations, public speaking, story telling and motivating to change and to own the vision of the leader and / or the ministry. Also to be able to prepare a talk, message, paper or letter in such a way that it addresses the needs of the audience in such a way that there is a positive response.
3.Developing skills in the area of Shepherding the people that are under the leader’s care, through affirmation, understanding the different learning styles that people have, developing people skills, learning to be more of a non threatening questioning person and therefore a good listener and gaining experience in the use of these training tools.
4.Develop skills in the area of Management, such as Decision Making, Planning, Organizing, Delegating, ‘following through’ and Evaluating. Visions need to be turned into reality. For this to happen basic management skills are absolutely essential, both in the ministry and in the personal life of the leader.
5.A leader needs to be a continual Learner. This course is in itself one way in which learning can take place in the life of a leader, but the learning needs to be on-going and life-long. The participants will be able to watch trainers ‘in training’, There will be mentoring throughout the course and they will experience a change in attitude towards being an on-going learner. The course is designed to be transferable so that they will also know how to pass skills on to others. http://www.leadershipmatters.ws/
6.Accept and understand that Pain is inescapable for a leader. For that reason the environment of the training is one of encouragement, but also a preparation to reality by addressing this issue. Relationship building, and effective management skills can greatly help to reduce the pain in many cases. Other skills acquired in the training can be of help also.
7.The need for God’s Anointing in Christian leadership is evident – the realization that the hand of God needs to rest upon a leader’s life and ministry. The trainers will be inspiring examples. Daily devotions will help focus upon God. The training is constantly Biblically based and immersed in much prayer.
