Who Is It For?
This event is ideal for leaders in any sphere and sector. That includes business, church, public service and non-profit. If you want to reignite your passion, clarify your purpose and upgrade your leadership skills, this event is for you.
In this strange new world, many of us find ourselves in need of realignment, renewal and reinvention. The world in which we live and lead is full of unique challenges and opportunities. The purpose of this event is to bring leaders together to share, worship and prayerfully evaluate the content of our leadership tool box. We’ll look at what we still need to develop, in order to face the future with courage. We’ll provide a safe environment for deep conversations and reflective time around the issues of spiritual formation, character building and leadership.
- The heart of leadership – spiritual formation and the inner life of a leader.
- Living in the kingdom of God today. Leading from acceptance to fruitfulness.
- The timeless power of servant leadership – a practical model for coaching and mentoring based on S.E.R.V.E model from a successful US corporation Chick-fil-A.
- What is moral courage and how do we exercise it?
- Leading people and leading ourselves in times of suffering and loss.
- Adaptive and resilient leadership in times of change and complexity.
