What is Leadership Development?

DDI_9Leadership development is a process by which individuals and groups undergo a series of training sessions aimed at broadening their leadership skills usually to benefit the organization where they are employed. As your leadership consultant, I offer leadership development tools aimed at advancing the effectiveness of leaders at various levels of the organization.

The exact format of my consulting with your organization can be tailored to suit your needs. Whether hosting a one-day seminar, a two- or three-day event, or a yearlong contractual agreement centered on a specific theme, meeting the stated objective will be my primary focus. If what you’re looking for is a mentoring approach to your development as an executive leader, perhaps you should explore my coaching program.

One in Christ: Bridging Racial & Cultural Divides

As America grows increasingly brown, the Church must be equipped to interact on a cross-cultural level organically. It cannot be mandated like civil rights laws or equal employment requirements. Racial reconciliation must naturally emanate from us just like little children learn to walk and talk. Youngsters naturally want to get up and move about on both feet. As their little chubby legs grow stronger, their eagerness to stand upright also grows. To speed the process along, parents coach, coax, and encourage the natural practice. This same practice is what Dr. Ireland does in One in Christ in the arena of diversity.

Warmth, regard, and respect emanated from Jesus toward others—all others. Part of His allure was the fact He was comfortable in His own skin. That made others who approached Him comfortable in their skin. This quality fuels the deconstruction of walls—tearing down the barriers that keep us apart. The beauty is, this quality can be learned. In fact, at the cellular structure of Christianity is the ability to be cross-cultural. The Great Commission proclaims it. Jesus said, “Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). The word nation is the Greek word ethnos, where we derive the English word ethnic. In essence, the last charge Jesus gave His followers was to become cross-cultural ambassadors. This is not optional! We must become racially accommodating.
