LEAD is our online learning resources for growing leaders.

LEAD

LEAD is our online learning resources for growing leaders.

Church Army is passionate about growing leaders and we’ve designed LEAD, our leadership learning resources, to facilitate this.

We want to resource and equip leaders, who will in turn raise up more leaders. Our vision is that these individuals will see transformation in their communities through faith shared in word and action.

LEAD is for leaders who want to grow in their leadership, whether you are relatively new to leadership, stepping up into new responsibilities, or have years of experience and want to develop others’ leadership.

LEAD is designed to be done with others, online in an action learning group, learning with and from others.

LEAD Testimonials

“My action learning group seemed to have an instant rapport with one another. We had good banter (!) but the highlight of it for me was the way we were able to ask each other difficult questions and be open with one another about the issues we were facing. This openness and vulnerability meant that we really got to the heart of each other’s problems, and by the end it felt like we had each made great progress; not only with our learning goals but actually understanding our own roles in the problems we were facing. I left LEAD with an increased awareness of my own skills, ability and calling and that has enabled me to be more assertive even in the last month since LEAD finished.” – Lead Participant

LEAD resources are like Lego – you can pick what you learn and how you learn to fit your own unique context.

How it Works

LEAD resources are like Lego: you can pick what you learn and how you learn to fit your own unique context.

LEAD offers you a choice of 5 core modules. Each module gives you 4 weeks of content based on one of our leadership dimensions. You can explore each of the modules from the menu below. To find out more about the module content, aims and learning goals you will need to log in. You can request  a log in by registering your interest above.

There’s the opportunity to meet up online with other leaders to explore your learning using action learning.

Whilst we’d prefer you to engage with action learning to experience the full benefit of LEAD, its flexible modular content means it is possible to access individual modules to complete on your own.

There’s the option to evidence your learning through follow up learning activities. 

LEARNING RESOURCES

Example: TEam Leadership Session 2 – Building Teams

Example: Authentic Leadership Session 2 – My core Values &Motivations

LEAD currently offers 5 modules.

What’s Involved?

LEAD currently offers 5 modules.

Each module is made up of 4 weekly E-briefings & action learning groups with a week either side to prepare and complete your learning plan and follow up activity to evidence your learning.

During the weeks that a LEAD module is running you will need to commit 30 minutes to read and reflect on some aspect of the weekly content, at your own convenience and 90 minutes for the action learning group meet up which will be scheduled in advance.

You will need to have access to the internet and be comfortable with engaging online. We currently use Zoom for meet ups. Hover over each of the images below to find out more about each Module. To view the content, please sign-up for LEAD by clicking here.

How much does it cost?

Church Army has covered the cost of the producing LEAD and cost will be based on whether you are wanting to register for the whole LEAD programme with action learning, 360’ feedback and submit learning activities. We aim to keep cost to a minimum. To find out more about cost contact us.

Is it accredited?

No. Whilst there are activities to help you demonstrate and record your learning if you wish, we want to ensure that LEAD can be accessed by as wide a range of leaders and that these activities are creative, fun and useful to you in your role.

What will be required of me?

We ask that you commit 2 hours per week during the duration of a LEAD Module. LEAD is designed for those who are not looking to change jobs in the next 18 months. We also ask that you have 5 or 6 individuals in your work or ministry context who know you well enough to contribute to your 360′ Feedback.
