For Those Who Lead: A Training Resource

leadThere are a lots of good leadership resources out there. How do we make sense of it all? As a leader of leaders or manager of a team, the prospect of compiling a leadership strategy and resources to train your leaders can feel overwhelming. Who has the time for this? Where do you start?

With the normal demands of time and energy, and the oceans of information and leadership resources “out there,” the prospect of wading through all the leadership books and strategies can be overwhelming. What’s needed is a comprehensive yet simple leadership tool to help give direction for leadership development in your team. What is needed is a step-by-step tool where, using the most recent leadership resources available, the research, strategies and organization has been done for you. You need a turn-key approach for leadership training.

LEAD (Leadership Equipping and Development) is a yearlong, (11 sessions) monthly two-hour training tool for leadership teams for busy leaders. Using a coach approach, each two-hour training session includes:
•A team-building exercise/activities
•Devotional (with instructions and ideas)
•Spiritual Formation (A 9-month, on-line resource you can use with your team)
•A book study (you pick the book from a suggested list)
•Personal assessments (links and instructions to the many personal awareness such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator; DSIC Classic 2.0 Profile; StrengthsFinder 2.0, etc.)
•Leadership Videos
•Complete, details instructions/agenda for each session

 

Advent Reflections

Advent-Cover-smallThis year we vow things will be different. This year we will slow down. We will spend less. We all want to live differently into the Christmas season…more reflective, less hurried, with more margin in our lives to give more of our time and our finances to our family and those in need. But all around we are rushed into some kind of celebration that equates love with spending.

In a culture and season cluttered with distractions, we seek to make room for what is real and essential. Advent Reflections is a devotional that invites us to be more attentive to all the moments and places where God is present in the midst of the hubbub.

With a short, insightful daily devotional, Scripture reading, and two reflective questions, Advent Reflections is perfect for individuals or families and offers us a way of living more intentional to the ways God comes to us that we might, like the wise men and the shepherds, respond with worship and wonder.
