The Gifted for Action™ Experience is an interactive, experiential and practical vocational leadership development programme for Christian believers who want to discover purpose and desire to be more and do more for God through their lives.
“This is an amazing opportunity, especially for the many people who have switched off from Church but yet want to explore who God is and what it means for them in their lives. The fact that people wouldn’t have to travel to be part of something like this is amazing.”
Danny Flynn, CEO YMCA North Staffs
What does it do?
The programme inspires people to see their everyday work as a vocation, not just a job! Developed for people already in leadership or management positions and individuals aspiring to move into management, our programme aims to make big differences to people and the communities they serve.
The programme is a blended learning programme combining limited ‘classroom based’ training with a predominantly web-based learning environment, to create a dynamic online learning experience.
Much More than Online Learning
Incorporating interactive eLearning modules, video webinars, an online forum for discussion, peer to peer learning partnerships, a digital 360-degree feedback process and coach-mentoring support via phone, email and video conferencing, the Gifted for Action™ programme captures the experiential and interactive nature of proven face to face delivery and translates this into a convenient and cost-effective delivery system.
Our online approach significantly reduces training costs associated with travel and venue hire and brings Kingdom-based thinking to the participant, in their environment!
eLearning modules with accompanying workbooks:
Then practical and interactive self-directed eLearning modules with accompanying workbooks, spread throughout the learning journey, with built in opportunities to connect and share learning with colleagues and other Christian believers.
Cohort-wide participative webinars:
After completing each eLearning module, participants are invited to attend participative webinars to share learning, discuss progress, obtain support and help participants to full engage with the online learning process.
What makes the Gifted for Action™ Experience different?
Based on our unique Experiential Leadership Pyramid™ Model, we deliberately weave key leadership principles into our design process and so deliver a new paradigm in practical Christian leadership development.
Enables Learners to:
- Embody the experience of leadership, not just learn about leadership;
- Balance the “we” (collective learning) with the “me” (personal understanding and application) of Christian-based leadership; and
- Utilise a ‘cascade’ model for sharing knowledge and experience, increasing corporate learning and discipleship.
The eLearning element of the Gifted for Action™ Experience is based on over three years’ experience of delivering the training content in more traditional, face to face seminars. This is a tried and tested programme.
Learning partnerships, online forums, phone, email and video conferencing support:
Participants are encouraged to capture and share their learning with colleagues and members of their learning group as they work through the Gifted for Action™ Experience via a number of online and offline learner support mechanisms.
Face to face cohort-wide training days:
The Gifted for Action™ Experience includes seven opportunities for participants to meet together, face to face, during their learning journey—one at the beginning of each year of study, twice during each year of study and a completion event at the end of the programme.
