At the root of today’s greatest challenges is a failure of leadership.
Yearning for wise guidance and effective authority is a perennial human longing. We want leaders who are credible, competent, and committed, yet sadly, many leaders today are consumed with their own power and agendas, ineffectual in their ability to lead.
Most leadership books and resources today emphasize concepts like motivation, inspiration, empowerment, and teamwork. As helpful as these themes are, they miss something even more fundamental: leadership needs a theological foundation.
In the Rooted Leadership course, John E. Johnson explores how Christian theology provides a sound basis for healthy leadership, applying a theological lens to contemporary leadership practices. Building on three decades of research and experience as a global leader, Johnson surveys the landscape of contemporary leadership theory, unpacks the assumptions and beliefs that underly current trends, and responds by offering a robust approach to leadership founded on the character, work, and words of God.
By completing this course, you’ll gain:
- An introduction to the basic questions every leader must ask him or herself
- A fuller picture of how our theology and view of God impacts our leadership
- Practical ways in which Christians can learn from biblical leaders to apply those same principles to leadership today
- Confidence in your growing knowledge through personalized review sessions, unit assessments, and award-winning memory building tools
