Leadership Pathways, Part 1: Preparing for a Wider Scope of Leadership

Facilitated by Andrea Buczynski (Cru – Leadership Consultant and Coach),
Jenn Williamson (MissioNexus, Dir of Leadership Formation)
                         Wendy Wilson (Exec Dir, Women’s Development Track )

What changes as your responsibilities increase?

This experience focuses on developing the increasing capacities/skills needed for women who are gifted and called into a larger scope or responsibility of leadership in their organization. Whether you are already there or on your way, this experience can help you trouble shoot where you are currently, identify what needs to shift, and put language to what you’re experiencing.  While more agencies are seeking gifted women to serve in their senior leadership teams, too often the paths to this niche of service for women are not clear, leaving us under-prepared for the unique challenges and opportunities we face. We will discuss the importance of the heart of the leader as well as her relationships with God, self, and others. We will also consider key functions of a leader such casting vision, setting direction, attending to priorities, leading change, building teams, men/women working together, and serving as spokesperson.  Developing confidence, born of humility and calling, allows gifted women to bring needed creativity and perspective to decision-making teams where men and women work together to offer the fullness of God’s Image. This peer-mentoring community is guided by experienced women mentors and limited to a cohort of 12 participants, so we leave with important friendships for the ongoing journey! Advance reading: Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership, by Ruth Haley Barton.

Learning is done in an interactive peer-group, guided by experienced mentors, with a maximum of 10 women (max 2 per organization.) First come, first serve!  Register by March 14, 2025 (Registration closes sooner if full.)

Course Schedule:

Begin Wednesday evening, May 14, with registration and dinner at 5pm, then introductory session following.

(9:00 am – 6:00 pm daily (including worship, personal reflection time, group instruction and interaction, plus several breaks and a long lunch with evenings free.)

We will enjoy an extended worship time together on the first morning to ease into our week, and a Free Afternoon half way through the week to enjoy the area and have some fun/relaxation. Beautiful downtown Coeur d’Alene, Idaho is 10 minutes away with shops, restaurants, art galleries, the CdA Resort, hiking by the lake!

Cost for the Week:  $ 900 all-inclusive, on-site     

We will be hosted by the Ross Point Camp and Conference Center in Post Falls, ID, situated in a beautiful location on the Spokane River. This all-inclusive price includes lovely accommodation with a bathroom in each room (based on double occupancy) and use of all facilities, with 3 meals/day plus coffee breaks, for the duration of your stay, May 14-21, except dinner on the afternoon off.   It also includes training instruction, all meeting rooms, and administration (materials ordered separately).

Refund Policy:
If cancellation is made by you before the registration deadline, you will be refunded all but $150. If cancellation is made after the registration deadline and we are able to fill your place with another participant, you will also be refunded all but $150. However, if cancellation is made after the registration deadline and we are not able to fill your place, your registration cannot be refunded since we are committed to our reservation with Ross Point in full after that date. In case of true emergency we can try to negotiate this, but especially for configuring small group intensive mentoring experiences, we will count on your being with us once you have registered!

Flight departures anytime Wednesday, May 21 (scheduled breakfast included, unless your departure flight is too early). Thanks for arranging your arrival/departure times so that you will be present from beginning to end, not arriving late/leaving early. It takes about 30 minutes to get from the Spokane airport to the Ross Point Camp.

If you are driving to Ross Point Camp, please plan to be there by 4 pm on Wednesday, May 14, to get checked in and settled before our training time begins.
