Designed especially for faith-based organizations, this program is built upon principles from the Word of God and from Dr. Freeman's experience in working with organizations in various parts of the world. There are timeless leadership principles which transcend culture and levels of authority. Behavior research indicates the most effective people are those who understand themselves and others. The more one understands personal strengths and weaknesses coupled with the ability to identify and understand the strengths and weaknesses of others, the better one will be able to develop strategies to meet the demands of the organization.
