Welcome to our 5-week online course! This course is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills you need to achieve specific goals and further develop your leadership skills. Please purchase the required reading and read the first two chapters of The Vision Driven Leader, by Michael Hyatt. It is also recommended to purchase Simon Sinek’s, Start With Why. Throughout the course, you will be exposed to a variety of information and resources that will help you to learn and apply the material in a practical and meaningful way.
Each week, you will be provided with a set of learning objectives, readings, and an assignment to submit a written essay. The readings and the essay are designed to help you acquire the knowledge and skills needed to achieve the objectives of the week.
The course will be delivered primarily online, through a combination of videos, lectures and discussions, readings, and guest speakers- Jonathan Pageau (The Symbolic World), Michael Sider-Rose (CEO of the Orthodox Volunteer Corps), Fr. Paul Abernathy (CEO of Neighborhood Resilience Project), John Maddex (former CEO of Ancient Faith Ministries). You will be expected to complete the course materials within a specific schedule, with specific deadlines for the weekly essay submissions.
We are excited to have you join us for this 5-week journey and we look forward to reading your essays and working with you to achieve your goals. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
Students are required to have an electronic journal that contains all of their notes for every content assignment in the course. There is a required minimum of one paragraph of notes per hour spent on a content assignment. The journal will be submitted in the Lesson Five Quiz when the course is completed.
Each week, students will perform a casual interview that relates to the content they are studying. A student can interview the same person as often as they want, and ideally, your interviewee is a person that is familiar with the current content you are studying. Students will submit a summary of their interviews at the end of the course.
