The Heart of the Leader
Because we believe that successful leadership begins on the inside, this course intentionally focuses on a leader’s heart motivation, our “why” first. Defining our “why” is not an easy task. It requires soul-searching, understanding one’s core life values and a desire for a destination that’s much more than pure profit or personal success. This course will explore critical questions every leader must answer, differences between a spiritually healthy and an unhealthy heart and how understanding and embracing our identity and an accurate self-awareness will make us much more effective influencers.
Content Contributor: Lead Like Jesus
This course is designed to provide every leader, regardless of their life role or position, a better understanding of why our heart matters most in our leadership journey, what Jesus, the most outstanding leader of all time, teaches about the importance of the heart, and how we can practically embrace Jesus’ model of leading and influencing others in our day-to-day living. Upon completion, the participant should better understand why the heart of a leader matters, how to recognize a spiritually healthy and an unhealthy heart, and practical ways to lead with a healthy heart committed to the Father and not to the bottom line or selfish ambition.
