About This Course

Leaders at all levels of responsibility in faith-based organisations, including senior, executive, departmental, and other areas of leadership, are expected to function successfully and appropriately within their professional context. This not only requires a deep understanding of and engagement with their specific context but also the capacity to lead people well by discerning and managing responsible action in the face of complex demands. In order to succeed here, leaders need an advanced understanding of core leadership theories, underpinnings and practices, and how these principles are effectively implemented in their professional context. All of Tabor’s leadership courses involve thoughtful engagement with the richness of the Christian tradition, making them ideally suited for people with responsibility for leading faith-based organisations.

Tabor’s Master of Leadership is particularly designed for senior leaders, who hold significant roles of influence within their organisation. Building on the foundations laid by the Graduate Certificate and Diploma, it deepens individual’s capacity to lead both within and outside of their organization, providing them with the knowledge and skills they need to address significant issues within their organizational context, thus providing their organization with the best opportunity to thrive and grow. The Master of Leadership concludes with a capstone project, which provides an opportunity for students to apply leadership theory to address a significant issue, challenge or problem their organization is facing. Overall, the course aims to form graduates into highly competent and thoughtful leaders who are trained to be of greater benefit to their faith-based organisations and beyond.

Professional Outcomes

Tabor’s Master of Leadership is aimed at high level leaders in faith-based organisations and seeks to equip graduates with the knowledge and skills to function as successful organisational leaders.

The course is designed to provide a sound understanding of leadership theories, ethical responsibilities of leaders, the fundamental principles and practices of self-leadership, the key components in leading teams in innovative ways, and the practice and value of strategic leadership, all in conversation with the rich tradition of Christian thought. As a result, students who complete the award will have at their disposal an advanced and integrated education that enables them to lead as Christians at significant levels of responsibility in a more effective and productive manner. Furthermore, students will develop the knowledge and skills to be able to undertake organisational improvement projects that add value to the structures and practices of their vocational context.
