Developed for people already in leadership or management positions and individuals aspiring to move into management, the Gifted for Action™ Experience aims to make a big difference to people and the communities they serve.
Gifted for Action™ Experience – Much More than Online Learning
The Gifted for Action™ Experience is delivered in cohort sizes between 8 and 20, predominantly via a web-based learning environment, to create a dynamic online learning experience, ensuring that you do not learn alone.
Incorporating interactive eLearning modules, live video seminars, an online forum for discussion, peer to peer learning partnerships, a digital 360° feedback process and coach-mentoring support via email, phone and video conferencing, the Gifted for Action™ programme captures the experiential and interactive nature of proven face to face delivery and translates this into a convenient and cost-effective delivery system.
Our online approach significantly reduces the training costs associated with travel and venue hire and bring Kingdom-based thinking to the participant, in their environment!

What makes the Gifted for Action™ Experience different?
Based on our unique Experiential Leadership Pyramid™ Model, we deliberately weave key leadership principles into our design process and so deliver a new paradigm in practical Christian leadership development.
We enable participants to:
- Embody the experience of leadership, not just learn about leadership;
- Balance the “we” (collective learning) with the “me” (personal understanding and application) of Christian-based leadership; and
- Utilise a ‘cascade’ model for sharing knowledge and experience, increasing corporate learning and discipleship.
The Experimental Leadership Pyramid™
The eLearning element of the Gifted for Action™ Experience is based on over three years’ experience of delivering the training content in more traditional, face to face seminars. This is a tried and tested programme.
Other elements of the Gifted for Action™ Experience learning system.
A. Online & offline learner support mechanisms
Participants are encouraged to capture and share their learning with colleagues and members of their learning group as they work through the Gifted for Action™ Experience programme via a number of online and offline learner support mechanisms.
B. Participative webinars
After completing each eLearning module, participants are invited to attend participative webinars to share learning, discuss progress, obtain support and help participants to full engage with the online learning process.
