EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP: HOW TO LEAD ALMOST ANYTHING (FT-8237)
This course examines theoethical factors of effective leadership in faith-based contexts, as well as identifying key aspects of leadership competencies crucial to develop effective relations within any organizational setting, whether pastoral or managerial roles in prison, hospital or military chaplaincy, non-profit community service, social entrepreneurship, or parachurch organizations. Use of multi-media and case studies will aid in-depth class discussions, self-reflection, and interaction with secular and faith-based readings to help identify specifics of effective transformational leadership in varied contexts. An effective leader recognizes the importance of understanding the context or organic culture of a church or organizational community as a crucial first step. By the end of the course, students are able to self-assess leadership characteristics; assess church/organizational culture in contextual setting and present on a ‘real-life’ leadership project.
