Anxious times and anxious institutions require non-anxious leaders. Effective leadership depends on being able to separate your personal anxieties from the issues that affect your church or organization. Based on the book "Anxious Church, Anxious People: How to Lead Change in an Age of Anxiety," this online course will provide you with a basic understanding of how to begin the journey toward becoming an effective, non-anxious leader. Learn why understanding your own family of origin is the key to effective leadership, what you can do to grow in this capacity, and the most important characteristic of effective leaders. This course is comprised of a series of brief recorded presentations that can be viewed at your convenience on specific days. Interaction with the instructor and other students is facilitated through online discussion threads. There will also be three live online discussions with dates and times to be determined. These sessions will be recorded for students who are unable to participate. Live participation or viewing of recorded sessions is required for CEU credit. You will need a copy of Anxious Church, Anxious People: How to Lead Change in an Age of Anxiety by Jack Shitama for this course. Other resources to get the most out of this course (but not required): Generation to Generation: Family Process in Church and Synagogue and Friedman’s Fables, both by Edwin Friedman. This course is eligible for 2.0 CEUs. Price: $199.

This is an online course, meaning you can participate at the time of day that works best for your schedule. Course materials will become available at Noon Central on the start day, and you should plan to spend an hour or two (whenever you choose) every day interacting with the course and on the discussion boards.
