Sketches of Leadership forms the basic components of a complete leadership training curriculum that help young disciples become servants, shepherds, wise influencers, visionaries, managers, sponsors and leader developers over time.
This material has been developed and tested in countless settings with Christian students, seminarians, church planters, lay leaders and leader developers around the world.
The modular nature of the Sketches makes it possible for an experienced trainer to find specific help:
The experienced trainer can explore new Sketches of Leadership topics and quickly get a sense of key leadership concepts or insights in the text. The leadership resources are built into the Sketches of Leadership--no additional material is necessary. No books need to be purchased or bulky manuals acquired, nor any formal training or credentialing is needed to make full use of the curriculum.
The Sketches of Leadership resources help you to bring Scripture, together with your own story and your understanding of your ministry context, into very practical focused application. Whether you are using the printed pages, or just borrowing some of the insights, Sketches of Leadership will help you deepen your own leadership understanding and bring sharper clarity and wisdom to those you teach and train.
