Today’s leaders of faith-based institutions are expected to not only spiritually inspire and engage their congregations – they are also expected to effectively manage complex organizations and skillfully lead teams of staff and volunteers. Faith leaders are often confronted with the challenge of figuring out how to supplement their seminary/religious training with the skills needed for effective 21st-century organizational leadership. Kellogg’s new residential executive education program, designed specifically for leaders of faith-based institutions, will give participants the opportunity to learn contemporary leadership and management skills while applying the learning objectives directly to the challenges they face in the faith-based organizations they serve.
Combining the academic rigor of Kellogg’s world-renowned faculty with the expertise of leading faith-based practitioners, this four-day executive education program will provide leaders with cutting edge theory in leadership, strategy, volunteer management, team building, leading change and decision making. This unique educational experience provides an opportunity for leaders of faith-based institutions to connect with each other to form relationships that span across denominational, geographic, and ethnic boundaries.
This program will be held at the James. L. Allen Center in Evanston, IL
