The last time Tim taught the ACT Course on Empowering Leadership at Sydney Missionary and Bible College was a week short of the 2020 COVID lockdowns around the country.
We have all learned a great deal about leadership through the pandemic and the lessons keep coming now we are COVID normal.
It was great to have a full intensive week 4th – 8th July to rework the course with leaders who are all out in contexts in which empowering others is an important part of their ministries.
The course covered Biblical reflections on leadership, engagement with contemporary theories of leadership, empowering leadership skills and key areas in which empowerment is used in the church.
Resilience is a dynamic capacity comprising the attitudes, the skills and the resources to cope effectively with adversity, to recover quickly from unusual stress, to respond positively to significant challenges, and to adapt learning to positively tackle difficult problems. Resilience is complex involving personal attributes, acquired knowledge and wisdom, learned behaviours, important external support relationships and access to resources. The following workshop sheet is adapted for COVID-19 from training sessions conducted by The Johnmark Extension over the last 5 years.

Great to be back up in the Blue Mountains for a training morning with members of the Blue Mountains Mission Area Group. We are working through how to facilitate Challenging Conversations.
