Leadership is not easy. The dynamics in church leadership often keep a leader from thriving, as do the relentless unseen dynamics working against our mental wellbeing, resilience, relational smarts and spiritual focus. This two-day experience aims to equip leaders spiritually, mentally, emotionally and relationally. Be strengthened to live out of who God has created you to be, fulfilling your calling, and excelling in your role.
Leading others well is a skill. Getting the best out of a person and helping them to function effectively in a team is every leaders goal but not always the reality. Dynamics in the person and in the culture can unwittingly undermine what is trying to be achieved. This two-day retreat will unpack some of the unhelpful dynamics, reveal unseen forces motivating people’s behaviour, and explore how to cultivate Mind Health in leading that releases greater effectiveness.
