Nurturing and sustaining Christian leadership in schools

Wednesday 7th July 2010

Nurturing and sustaining Christian leadership in schools

Leading a school doesn’t require skill alone. There is the added demand of a sense of vision and vocation. What happens to us when pressures and expectations threaten our very sense of direction and purpose? What does leadership look like when we get tired and irritable and how do we stop ourselves becoming bitter? This day explores a Christian vision of leadership which, when we hold to it, will keep us fresh and vital.
