May: Leadership in the Age of Distraction and Destruction
Mondays, May 8, 15, 23, and 29 at Noon Eastern
As the title of this class suggests, we are living and leading in the age of increasing distraction and destruction. In every sphere of life, politics, economics, education, or religion understanding common knowledge and the standards taught by education and experience have lost a bit of validity. This class will move through a discussion of the disruptive nature of today’s world. It will encourage thinking about the world from a perspective spirituality and not necessarily religiosity. It will encourage development of the character of God in individual behavior. It will be deeper than just learning all the right words.
