Event Details

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 Edwin’s Friedman’s seminal work, "Generation to Generation: Family Process in Church and Synagogue," this 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. Suggested (but not required) reading to get the most out of this course: "Generation to Generation: Family Process in Church and Synagogue" and "Friedman’s Fables," both by Edwin Friedman. This course offers 2.0 CEUs. Price: $99
