Strategic Leadership: Leading People Through Inspiration, Alignment, and Execution

Taught by Eric Byrd and Michelle Johnston

In this masterclass geared towards anyone in a ministry or church leadership role, you’ll be equipped with the strategy to develop and empower your staff and volunteers through a series of interactive sessions.

You’ll learn how to create ministry teams that are empowered to do more than you can imagine!

Key takeaways include:

  • Understand and execute a vision that inspires and unites your leaders and volunteers
  • Develop a strategic plan aligned with your church’s vision and values
  • Foster effective leadership styles and build strong, diverse teams
  • Implement your plan with practical tools and strategies for long-term success
  • Navigate conflict constructively and harness its growth potential
  • Craft a roadmap for success that includes measuring progress, overcoming obstacles, and iterating on your strategies along the way
  • Master the art of delegation to prevent burnout and keep yourself energized throughout the process
  • Harness the power of Strategic Marketing/Communication so that leadership, staff, volunteers and congregants can easily repeat, define and embrace
