"I was just blown away by it. The entire course was brilliant, with top-notch, engaged faculty; the cross disciplinary approach was stunning."--the Rev. KyungJa (KJ) Oh, rector of Church of the Advent, Cincinnati, Ohio
"I was looking to increase my day-to-day, administrative skill set—how to run a good meeting, how do you lead change? And also branding, and social media, and how to evangelize in the 21st century. I came away with a lot of tools."--the Rev. Ian Reed Twiss, rector of Holy Faith Church, a combined Lutheran and Episcopal congregation in Saline, Michigan
"I didn't find any of the material covered to be something that I couldn't use. I was really taken with the quality of instruction. In a situation like that, the professors from Kellogg could have hit a single, but they were swinging for the fences. When I got home I began to explode with ideas. I hope Seabury will continue to offer programs like this."--the Rev. Darrel Proffitt, rector of Church of the Holy Apostles in Katy, Texas
"The Kellogg professors challenged me to think in different terms about church and ministry. We learned from the business world, which is where many Christians work every day."--the Rev. Amity Carrubba, executive director, Episcopal Service Corps
"It was a great program. There was some really creative looking at the role of the church in the changing world. How do you market in the age of Facebook? How do you encourage people to give who would rather give their three dollars to Starbucks? It was so radically different from what we are usually offered."--the Rev. Sarah Fisher, former rector of St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Chicago, Illinois
Leading and Following: Leaders need to understand their dual role as leaders and followers to be truly successful at guiding an organization to success. In this session, participants will explore the entanglement of being a leader and a follower. Using unique metaphors, the faculty will teach the participants that leading requires moving forward and moving back and the ability to empower others to reach the goal.
Team Building: No leader becomes successful working alone. Managers in today's world rely on teams to help them achieve their objectives, develop new programs and services, generate solutions and expand their vision. These sessions will help participants design and implement more effective teams in their church or organization. They will examine elements of intra-team behavior such as leadership, communication and conflict resolution and inter-team dynamics such as competition. Specific topics addressed in these sessions will include: how to lead a team; how to encourage creativity; how to ensure coordination; how to deal with difficult team members; how to improve a team's decision-making and performance; and how to get the most out of a team.
Organizational Culture and Leading Change: In today's turbulent times, change is a fact of life for most organizations including churches and nonprofit organizations. Whether it is a change in leadership, culture, requirements or demographics, pastors and volunteer leaders play a key role in this dynamic environment. This session will discuss the management of change and the skills necessary to ensure the organization's future growth. It will address key drivers of change and how to motivate various constituents to support and embrace change.
The Customer-Focused Nonprofit Organization--Applying Smart Marketing Strategy to the Nonprofit World: In this session, participants will take a look at some of the best practices of marketing strategy and how they can be applied to the challenges faced by churches and nonprofit organizations. The professor will talk about market segmentation and how it allows organizations to increase the effectiveness of their effort. Participants will look at the challenge of target selection and the real need for focus. And finally, participants will talk about how to position themselves in the increasingly competitive world of fund-raising to enhance the value of giving for potential donors.
Values Based Leadership: This session will focus on the problem of incorporating a wide variety of value perspectives into decision-making. Values-based leadership involves the ability to take the disparate value propositions of various stakeholders and integrate them into a coherent vision. The faculty will explore how recognizing and incorporating competing values claims throughout the organization is often facilitated and hindered by psychological, organizational, and cultural processes.
