Description

Leadership—how would you define it? How can you be an effective leader? The Foundations in Effective Leadership course defines leadership as moving people from where they are to a better place.

But to be an effective servant leader you first need to look at yourself. The kind of person you are is the kind of leader you will be. Are you ready to become an effective servant leader? You can begin today.

I learned a lot of things about leadership that I had not considered, as well as learning about a true call to leadership, particularly being a good servant leader. Excellent course for anyone wanting to take on a leadership role.

This course gave me a good overall understanding of the different kinds of leadership that can be used. I recognized that the administration at the school I work at has been using Visionary and Transforming Leadership which has been very effective, but taken a long time to see the positive effects of it. Enjoyable class.

This was very good for me. Breaking down leadership style the way it was done in this course is helpful for me. I’m not a natural leader. The lesson on servant leadership was especially important.

WOW!!! It is revolutionary, encouraging, challenging, confrontational and yet loaded with a message of HOPE for individuals, groups and Churches. Its really opening my eyes in understanding the difference of leadership and leaders and their responsibilities. It is easy to understand, practical and insightful. Thank you for this life-changing course
