Grounded in a practical theological framework, this unit will enable students to identify and articulate a personal sense of leadership formation. Students will explore key leadership competencies; reflect on the integration of their belief and their behaviour; and communicate their understanding of Christian leadership as they engage with real-world contexts with a focus on promoting positive change in the world. A feature of this unit will be receiving input from a variety of Christian leaders and entrepreneurs. Specific formational issues will be explored such as: understanding influence, transformational spiritual practices, an integrated approach to theology and work, resilience and character.
