Spiritual Leadership: A Transformational Process
This course will start with a brief revision of the fundamentals of leadership to include organizational structures, leadership styles, ethics, and spirituality. The issue of chaos and flow channels will be addressed. The review will set the stage for the student to pursue outside research in exploring the meaning and value of spiritual leadership. Students will learn about the new scientific approach to spirituality and consciousness by studying concepts such as the hologram, non-locality, worm-holes, tunneling, and neuroscience research findings to include brain plasticity. Understanding the potential of the human brain-body-soul will help the student better manage his/her transformational process toward spiritual leadership to include shifting into a more evolved mindset. The course will focus on case studies and real life experiences to illustrate the concepts, and will challenge the student to think outside of conventional models and paradigms.
Students will acquire in-depth knowledge about leadership, spirituality, and organizational structures. This knowledge will provide students with a grounded base from which they will create and develop their own model of spiritual leadership. They will learn how to integrate the different components of leadership, spirituality, and organizational structure and discover how they can become an effective spiritual leader. Students will have the opportunity to start on a transformational process by reflecting and analyzing themselves against the criteria of spiritual leadership.
