“Often our leadership efforts are not effective – we are ignored, undermined, even ridiculed and reviled,” says Dan Rohner, Facilitator for the programs. “Jesus showed us a better way -- because Jesus was the best leadership teacher and role model of all time.”

Rohner adds: “Modern empirical studies continue to affirm the value of Jesus’ leadership approach in every setting – at home, at work, in our parishes and in the network of other communities of which we are all a part.

“You can be a better leader -- helping to bring about better outcomes -- as spouse, parent, grandparent, friend, team member, team leader, worker, supervisor, manager, sales executive, CEO, scout leader, youth coach, club member or officer, as pastor and parishioner.”

The registration fee is just $49 by credit card or check. Register at For more information, contact Rohner at or 800-876-3546 x 283.
