Practicing Adaptive Leadership 2.0

Why figure out your leadership challenges alone?

Register by June 1 – $400 per person, 13 week session

The Details

Join a small group of 4-6 church leaders to practice adaptive leadership in the context of deepening discipleship.

For 13-weeks, beginning in June 2018, you will set aside 75-90 minutes per week to study adaptive leadership, to apply what you learn in at least two case studies of your own, and to deepen your personal discipleship along the way. The primary book resource will be Your Leadership Edge, by O’Malley and Cebula.

This is an opportunity for you to meet in community and to learn from one another.
