“Deepen Your Influence – The Online Seminar”
In life and in leadership we all want to have a stronger, deeper, and better influence.
We should—and we can.
You are invited to follow along with “Deepen Your Influence – the Online Seminar.” This is not a webinar or a class, but a gradually unfolding learning and networking experience over an 8-week period, ending in December. There are no scheduled sessions. You will be able to follow the steps of the seminar on your own time.
“Deepen Your Influence – the Online Seminar” will help you in four specific ways:
1) “Getting Grounded” focusses on strengthening your spiritual roots; 2) “Taking Initiative” shows how you can deepen your influence through your spiritual resources; 3) “Going Deep” reveals your potential power to produce enduring influence; and 4) “Facing Challenges” will help you get through difficulties and discouragements that prevent you from being a deeper influence.
How does this “online seminar” work? Very simply.
There are no scheduled sessions. You are able to follow the steps of the seminar on your own time.
If you sign up, in the 8-week period beginning the week of October 15 you will receive a series of emails that will lead you step-by-step through the seminar.You will learn through four kinds of experiences…
1) READING SEGMENTS: Over 8 weeks you will gradually read through Spiritual Influence: the Hidden Power Behind Leadership by Mel Lawrenz (Zondervan, 2012). This will only take you about one hour a week. (Information about the book HERE.)
Scot McKnight (Jesus Creed) calls this book “a missional view of leadership.” Skye Jethani (Senior Editor, Leadership Journal) says “we need help understanding how to lead effective, transformative change in [all our] callings. For that reason I am incredibly grateful for Spiritual Influence.” Mark Batterson (Pastor, National Community Church, Washington, D.C.) says “it is exciting to think about believers at every level of society rising to a new call to exercise powerful spiritual influence…. Mel Lawrenz has given us all a new baseline for leadership that is personal, wise, and spiritual.” One reader commented: “it was like someone threw open all the windows and let the fresh air clear out the musty places. It left me changed and changing.”
2) VIDEO INSTRUCTION: In the emails you will get links to 20-minute videos on the four themes of “Deepen Your Influence.” You will view one 20-minute video every other week.
3) ONLINE INTERACTION: With each email you receive you will be able to engage in an online discussion of what we are exploring together. You will learn from interesting people in interesting parts of the world. Mel Lawrenz will be actively interacting in the online comments.
4) REAL-LIFE LESSONS: The seminar will guide you into real-life application to help you have a deeper and more enduring influence in your work, your leadership, your family, your church, and other aspects of your life.
