This Master Class was just what I needed at just the right time! It really affirmed areas of my leadership and helped me shore up areas of my leadership that I didn't even realize I needed to fix.

The practical application impacted me most. It's always good to hear how others are doing it practically. It helps with the "innovation" part, so we can reproduce for our context.

    Here’s how it works: we have resourced and trained over 3 million leaders and practitioners from 100+ countries…

    And along the way we have curated a large number of strategies and tactics. More importantly, we DOCUMENT each strategy in step-by-step “Master Classes” so the best ideas could be repeated and implemented by different leaders, groups and churches.
