The week will have a blend of individual and group exercises, teaching, individual and group coaching and mentoring, and forging relationships. Following the successful move online of the Influential Leadership Workshop (a related course), the workshop will now be a unique online experience of blended learning.
- There will be space and time
- to slow down, and experience reflective practices through one on one coaching, group coaching and local mentoring
- to take stock, to reflect on where you are and where you’d like to be, by God’s grace
- to regain strength, as you see afresh who you are in Christ and as you give and receive encouragement
- to shape your future, as you consider the next steps to make a difference for Christ in the ministry God has for you.
Serve God’s mission: Go from the workshop, inspired and better equipped to lead radically and authentically now and in the future, so you can make a difference.
This workshop is aimed at leaders in their 20’s and 30’s who are already leaders of churches, leaders in the Corporate, Public Sector, voluntary Sector and small businesses.
It will help you, in an immersive, open and supportive environment, to become more alive in your role, more secure in your identity, more invested in your character development and more influential in your relationships.
The workshop is being held in partnership with Forge Consultancy and Keswick Ministries.
“Come prepared to be honest, open, challenged and changed and you will find that you meet Jesus in a new way, return refreshed and ready for your next challenge and look at the issues you face from a completely new perspective.” – Simon Barrington, founder and director at Forge
Delegates will also work closely with our coaches – individually and in groups – who will help leaders develop their own personal development plan based on five I’s of Leadership: Intimacy with Jesus, Identity in Christ, Integrity of character, Inner Strength and Influence. By the end of the week, delegates will have been supported to develop a personal development plan and will be partnered with other leaders to support them through the application.
The workshop format will be dynamic, interactive, and transformative. It brings out and develops each individual’s gifting and addresses each individual’s situation, rather than giving a formulaic grid.
