Christian Leadership

What can I do to develop as a leader and to develop others as leaders?

Leading well involves a number of mindsets, activities and traits, including improvisation, integrative thinking, having an “opposable mind” and employing adaptive leadership. These are concepts and underlie all of our offerings.

In addition, assessment tools that researchers have developed and tested for validity can provide very helpful feedback. These instruments have been developed using psychological theory and most often present information in business language. Even with these limitations, such assessments provide the most reliable anonymous feedback.

We use tools such as Six Domains of Leadership, FIRO-B and Change Style Indicator to provide such feedback in Foundations of Christian Leadership  and Denominational Leadership.

This is just one of the questions Leadership Education answers. Visit our complete questions page to learn more.
