Strategic Leadership 301 F18

The third in our suite of four Leadership Develop courses, Strategic leadership is board members, staff, program council members, ministry executive teams, finance committees, bylaws review committees, strategic planning committees, committees on ministry and any other leaders who need to think strategically.

You will gain a deeper understanding of how to focus your congregation on mission, by building trust and developing a cohesive leadership team. Learn about stewardship, strategic planning, annual goal setting and ministry assessment and the basics of congregational governance.

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.).

Syllabus

Prerequisites: Reading Congregational Leadership in Anxious Times, or taking Healthy Leadership 101, Centered Leadership 101, Healthy Congregations®, Smart Church, UU Leadership School or equivalent.

Instructors: This course is team-taught by various UUA Congregational Life Staff, and hosted by UU Leadership Institute Co-Deans, the Rev. Dr. Jonipher Kwong, and the Rev. Renée Ruchotzke.

Note for Leadership Development Teams: 

Each module has discussion questions 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
