Leadership and management go hand in hand, but they are not the same thing. Often congregations seek pastors who are effective managers when a strong leader is what is needed. The goal of leadership is to equip others and motivate them to strive toward a common vision. Do we even recognize when we are managing projects instead of leading people? Do we understand our personal leadership style and how it impacts and influences the mission and vision within our congregations?
This learning event will encoruage participants to discover their personal leadership style and the role it plays in congregational growth and success. Additionally, we will explore how to maximize those leadership traits and avoid falling into the management trap.
Before the even, participants need to take the Clifton StrengthsFinder Assessment, TOP 5 STRENGTHS on line, which cann be accessed by clicking here. The assessment costs $15. Please bring your report with you to the learning event.
This program fulfills 6 hours towards Associations' continuing education requirements for authorized ministers.
