The second in our suite of four Leadership Development Courses, Centered Leadership Part 2 is designed for people who are brand-new to leadership or have been a leader for decades. This course is ideal for leadership teams to develop a common language and enable you to lead toward health and vitality.
We will explore dynamics of the interconnection of human relationships in congregations, and how congregations can develop ways of developing the collective creative and emotional intelligence of the members as a system. You will learn how your own sense of purpose and your centered presence can have a positive impact, and how a shared sense of purpose and group emotional intelligence can unleash creative synergy. You will also have opportunities to reflect on your own spiritual center, and to develop some intercultural agility.
Course materials are divided into bi-weekly modules, available “on demand” as prerecorded presentations with additional reading materials, discussion questions and other resources. Course participants receive an email reminder as each module opens. Course instructors also schedule live calls during the semester (discussion sessions, office hours, etc.).
Instructors: This course is team-taught by the UUA Congregational Life Staff UULI design team, the Rev. Dr. Jonipher Kwong, the Rev. Renée Ruchotzke. the Rev. Sharon Dittmar, Kathy McGowan, Connie Goodbread, and Dawn Casstevens.
Note for Leadership Development Teams:
Each module has discussion questions (and sometimes activities) that you can use in person so your leaders can learn together and build deeper relationships and trust.
This is part of a series of four leadership courses that can be taken by different leaders in your congregation during the same semester. We provide “flipped classroom” materials so that everyone taking one of the four courses can interact and learn from one another.
Course fee: $30 per participant
Note: Registration for this class is now closed. This class will be offered in future semesters.
