Centered Leadership Part 2 – 101 F18

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 McGowanConnie 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

      All courses that you have registered for are still available if you are logged in and look under My Account. We don’t keep old courses in the menus or in the front page to prevent confusion since you can no longer register for them.

      Your course list should be on the right side of the front page after you log in (under My Courses) and you can always see the list if you go to the participant menu and select “My Courses”. This will take you to a page that has a list of all courses you have enrolled in. Click on the title of the course you are interested in completing or revisiting and it’ll take you to that page.
