Leadership Training by Congregational Role
This page is a work in progress! We will be adding additional training materials as time and other resources allow!
Core Leadership Trainings
Every leader needs basic skills such as healthy communication, systems thinking, spiritual grounding and an understanding of the dynamics of conflict. Each of these trainings go deeper and deeper to help develop these skills.
Board Member Training
Use this 12-Part training to onboard new board members, to use as a monthly board in-service training, or for a quick reference during board meetings.
Leadership Development Teams
Many congregations only think about developing new leaders around the time that the nominating committee is looking for potential board members. Instead, we recommend that congregations see leadership development as part of an arc of faith development that includes not just leadership skills, but also leadership sensibilities and faith development.
This training uses the 5 "I's" of Leadership Development: Identify, Invite, Inform, Involve, and Inquire.
