// Module Descriptions
Integrative leadership explores the model of servant leadership, addresses issues of power and authority and guides delegates to explore their values, personal faith and character development journey in order to lead out of Christ-centred integrity.
Cadence is all about 'getting in step' with God, self and others encouraging delegates to explore their personal calling, be challenged in their spiritual journey and better equipped at making space for God in their everyday lives. Cadence is founded on a biblical understanding of community highlighting the importance of dependence on God, independence relating to self and interdependence in community with others.
Healthy self-care draws on learning from 'Maslow's chart of needs' and addresses self-nurture, setting priorities as well as gaining skills in delegation. Teaching on the biblical concept of 'Shalom', this module reinforces the importance of interdependence and building belonging communities.
Confidence explores the personal, theological and global factors and forces that begin at birth and contribute to why many people struggle with low confidence in leadership. This module encourages an understanding of how confidence grows and what undermines it and enables participants to think more objectively about their own confidence. Participants complete a DISC personality profile, explore their personal strengths and passions and are encouraged to practice interdependence with others through mentoring and coaching relationships.
Connection allows participants time for reflection to consider the relationships in their lives and how they might live in healthy interdependent ways. While this module is designed to stand alone it benefits from an understanding of the teachings in Cadence, Confidence, Healthy Leadership and Communication. This module covers topics such as emotional intelligence, building community, giving and receiving feedback and performance-based coaching.
Communication is more complex than we realise and effective communication is critical for leaders. This 8-10 hour module outlines how scripture describes words and communication as powerful and important. It explores models and mindsets to improve leaders’ ability to listen, understand and respond. Participants will be equipped and practiced in skills relating to deep listening, conflict resolution and effective communication. Participants will reflect on the passions and gifts God has placed within them and go on a journey of discovering their ‘true voice’.
Transformational change is messy and unpredictable and requires careful leadership and competent communication. This segment teaches principles around identifying when change is needed, casting vision for a desired future and inspiring action towards transformational change. Participants will learn change leadership principles and be equipped to with tools and skills to initiate a change process, recognise the coping cycle of change and develop strategies to bring people on the journey.
Polarities & systems explores the complex relationships within organisations and between organisations and their community. This module develops understanding in systems thinking, where everything exists in relationship to something else and how every change changes everything. Participants will identify how to achieve positive change through using brainstorming, collaboration and the willingness to explore diverse worldviews.
