Senior Leader

Learning Community icon

PLI Senior Leader provided an opportunity for me to grow in my leadership, clarify my vision and recalibrate my perspective on ministry. It was especially beneficial to be there alongside two other members of our leadership team, where we could process, debrief and develop our next steps together. The content, encouragement and collaboration we experienced became a springboard for the next season of ministry and vision before us! -Brian Booth, Executive Director

 

One of the things I loved about Senior Leader was its emphasis on practical skills development, especially in the areas of goal setting, task management, and strategic planning… PLI helps fill in that key learning gap. – Nick Price, Site Pastor

Imagine gathering in a learning community with like-minded top leaders who aspire to a higher level of leadership in the school, nonprofit organization, or congregation they lead. Experience iron sharpening iron as you take your leadership to the next level.
