May 18-19 (Fri & Sat) - Strengths Based Leadership 301
Cost: $235


We are each fearfully & wonderfully made with a combination of talents that God gifts us with that make you unique among everyone who has ever lived. The talents are the source of the strengths we have to serve God and accomplish the good works He has prepared in advance for us to do. These same strengths are the source of the best work we do and the ways we have to bless the people we live & serve beside. 

Strengths Based Leadership is a two-day course designed to help leaders understand the role of their strengths in their personal leadership style, become transformational leaders, and explore how to more effectively lead their teams.


A Highlight of this course is working together with the rest of the cohort members to develop a context specific, individual leadership challenge that participants discern they are being called to engage in.
