Upcoming Events › Leadership Pathways, Part 1: Preparing for a Wider Scope of Leadership
- This event is not currently scheduled. Please check back or contact us to let us know of your special interest.
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’re at, 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 as 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! (A one-week experience). Some advance reading.
