Webinar [Past Event] How to Get an Integrated Christian Approach to Leadership DevelopmentMarch 2 2022 | 07:30 AM (GMT+8)

FREE Leadership development has often focused on leadership theories, tools or disciplines. While helpful, they may not lead to holistic leadership satisfaction. The reason being that the core of Christian leadership is always our relationship with Christ: how much we are assured by His love, our awareness of our talents and personal leadership journey, and how Christ’s love frees us to lead.
ECWL adopts a holistic approach to leadership development by integrating not only contemporary leadership theories, skills and analytical tools, but also spiritual formation and narrative approaches that will ground learners leadership in Christ’s love.
