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.

It equips graduates with a deep understanding of key leadership theories and principles, and the knowledge and skills they need to make ethical decisions and lead teams, essentials task of all who are engaged in leadership roles. As with all of Tabor’s leadership courses, there is a strong emphasis on personal reflection and engagement, helping graduates to consider their calling and vocation in the light of what constitutes a meaningful life.
