It was great fun, but also a great responsibility, to develop the leadership basics course now in use by Christian Leadership Alliance and Azusa Pacific Online University. The course has five modules, each lasting 10 weeks, with credit accumulating for the Credentialed Christian Nonprofit Leader. The upcoming module is on the relationship between executives and their boards, and will be taught by Rebekah Basinger, one of the best in the field. This spring we offer the first module on Leadership Basics again, the one I want to touch on in this blog post.
