“Learning is a lifelong process of keeping abreast of change, and the most pressing task is to teach people how to learn.” ~ Peter Drucker
Here at Christian Leadership Alliance (CLA) we are passionate about our mission to equip and unite leaders to transform the world for Christ. Since our founding in 1976 that has been our consistent goal. I’m excited to introduce you to a brand new way that CLA is offering to accelerate your lifelong process of learning – a new yearlong leadership experience we call “Outcomes365.”
Outcomes365 leverages the best of CLA’s leadership training, creating a customized experience to offer you dynamic leadership growth. This new initiative elevates your leadership skills and perspective by delivering synergy between these nine CLA experiences:
- The Outcomes Mentoring Network
- Credentialed Christian Nonprofit Leader (CCNL) program
- CLA Online Academy training
- The Outcomes Conference “Academic Experience”
- Monthly “Encore Series” Webcasts
- Outcomes magazine
- CLA “Higher Thinking” Blog
- CLA’s daily digital paper
- CLATV: Internet TV and radio for leaders
CLA believes a Biblical foundation is imperative for developing Christ-centered leaders and is launching Outcomes365 on its new site, www.Leadership.Bible. CLA joins rank as a ministry partner site with American Bible Society and the roll out of this new top-level domain (TLD).
So, how do you continue your “lifelong process” of leadership development?
Scripture tell us: “The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge; the ears of the wise seek it out.” Prov. 18:15
The keys to a lifelong process of leadership development are to know ourselves and our strengths, to understand God’s unique design for us as leaders, to seek wise mentors, and to dedicate ourselves to continuous improvement through lifelong learning. We must continually encounter new ideas, and expand our understanding of ourselves and the world in which we lead. We must commit ourselves to investing in our personal leadership growth so that we can better fulfill the kingdom missions to which we’ve been called. Outcomes365 is designed to help us meet those goals.
Because every leader learns differently, CLA offers a wide range of diverse biblically based leadership experiences and resources: from online learning to in-person conference training; from our “higher thinking” blog to one-hour webcasts; from a quarterly national magazine to a daily digital paper, and from CLATV to in-depth leadership mentoring and so much more!
Through CLA, notable influencers and thinkers in Christian nonprofit leadership share what’s coming and what you need to know. CLA offers insight in areas such as: leading well as a Christian executive, hiring and growing your staff, managing finances with excellence, developing and stewarding resources in a God-honoring way, capitalizing on this unique social media moment. utilizing technology wisely, establishing your organization’s brand, ensuring biblically sound governance, leading the next generation and much more.
With Outcomes365 you’ll enjoy a customized year-long leadership development journey.
I hope you’ll check out this new CLA leadership development experience. It will keep you abreast of the changes you need to know and prepare you for success in the kingdom mission to which you’ve been called
