BIBLICAL LEADERSHIP COURSE

If you’re interested in ramping up your leadership skills that are grounded in biblical principles, this course is for you!   

 

I spent over 20 years helping companies with their leadership development, and another 20 years running my own companies, and know firsthand how timeless and practical these principles are. This course marries my two areas of expertise, having had 5 of my own companies as well as managed others and obtained a graduate degree in Biblical Studies at a leading Seminary.  Get ready to grow as you put into practice what you're learning.

My thanks to, Madelon Maupin for this outstanding series! I joined by telephone for the two first sessions and hope by Zoom for the remaining three.  The content, presentation, communication (announcements, handouts, follow up, links), and technical expertise are extraordinary. Thank you again and my abiding appreciation and support to Madelon and all for this fine series.

My husband and I are really enjoying the Leadership webinars.  Thanks for being willing to be a leader for us.  You have made turning to the Bible fun for us to do together and individually rather than burdensome!  So grateful for this as I love my husband with all my heart as well as the Bible.

Thank you!  These sessions have been inspiring, insightful, and substantial!
Based on the content of this webinar, the scope of participation, and the feedback to date, I believe this Biblical Leadership webinar will have a parallel impact on the demonstration of leadership in the professional lives of these participants, and through them on their organizations, colleagues and communities. Pound-for-pound (and dollar-for-dollar) I expect the impact will actually be far greater.   What a wonderful contribution to so many!

In this course we’ll explore three areas:

  • Five attributes of leadership based on thousands of interviews by leadership gurus, Kouzes and Posner

  • Biblical examples of those, both from the Old and New Testaments, and 

  • Your preparation for leadership

  • Lesson One:  Challenge the Process

    In this first lesson we cover styles of leadership, definitions and especially one that is found throughout the Bible, even though the word ‘leader’ is not used as much as offices of Israel (king, priest, prophet, etc.).  You’ll also learn more about “The Leadership Challenge”, the seminal work of two men who have written a work in its sixth printing and has stood the test of time, and see Biblical examples, like Joshua, who practiced this first core competency.

  • Lesson Two:  Inspire a Shared Vision

    This second competency is future-focused:  where does the team/company/organization need to go?  How does that get communicated to all stakeholders? Biblical leaders such as King Solomon demonstrated this when building the first great Temple to God.  Comparisons with Moses are made to see how the same competency can be implemented completely different based on the leader’s individual style.

  • Lesson Three:   Enabling Others to Act

    Here the competency shifts to teams, ways to get people to work together to accomplish a goal.  Looking at examples from the Gospels of how Christ Jesus worked with his disciples and larger community of followers, we see how ably he illustrated this vital leadership practice.  The Old Testament (Hebrew Scriptures) example might be a surprise since it involves a female who isn’t even named in the biblical text.

  • Lesson Four:  Model the Way

    Trust is why people follow a leader, and nothing builds it more than people who walk their talk, do what they say, lead by example.  Some of Israel’s greatest patriarchal figures illustrate this courageously and consistently. This lesson looks at them as well as the great apostle Paul whose life and letters did so much to shape Christianity’s spread in the first century CE.

  • Lesson Five:  Encourage the Heart

    How telling the Kouzes and Posner declared this final competency to be the one leaders had the hardest time implementing.  This is the competency followers/team members/ direct reports are starving for their managers to embrace and practice. Both Jesus Christ and Paul are featured for the creative and consistent ways they continually practiced this final and oh-so-important competency.

So many thanks for these inspiring sessions.....so relevant and timely.

t's funny, but I had not actually thought about working in HR as a leadership role, but rather a partnership role, helping employees navigate through everything. Now after listening, I'm shifting my thought to vision and initiative, which is really fun.
