Are you ready to take the next step in your leadership journey? The Values-based Leadership Program provides the perfect opportunity to hone your God-given gifts. The two-session format gives you the opportunity to put into practice what you've learned from the first session. Discover what works for you and what doesn't— and bring your real-life experiences, challenges, and questions to the second session.

You’ll gain:

  • A deeper understanding of your unique leadership style and how it’s shaped by your faith, core values, and life experiences;

  • A better sense of how to implement your values in the workplace;

  • A keen understanding of servant leadership.

Modern executives face a multitude of challenges – from daily operational concerns to long-term strategic planning issues. Imagine a safe, nurturing environment where CEOs can build and develop peer-to-peer relationships through the guidance of a skilled facilitator.

"Executive Circle is the only place where I can honestly talk about the challenges of being an executive of a faith-based organization."

The MHS Executive Circle is a one year program devoted to encouraging and mentoring CEOs as they lead non-profit organizations. In addition to two face-to-face sessions, you will benefit from access to relevant books and articles. Most importantly, you will create an intimate, trusted network of peers whose counsel, input, and advice will guide you for years to come.

Faced with a challenging situation? Are you considering a bold change or new initiative? Have you been wondering how to solve an ongoing problem? Turn to our trusted team for a peer consultation. Present your idea or problem to Mim Shirk and our staff will assist you in arranging and coordinating a consultation.

A typical peer consultation involves document review, a one- to two-day site visit, and a brief written report summary complete with recommendations.

The host organization pays expenses for travel, lodging, and meals for the site visit. MHS consultation team members donate their time, making this a timely, affordable way to gain valuable new perspectives and build relationships with trusted peers.

Exchange ideas and information with industry colleagues who have similar values and goals. Affinity networks are formed based on member request. For more information, contact info@mhsonline.org.
