Jody K Hill
The purpose of this project was to equip selected students at Blue Mountain College, in Blue Mountain, Mississippi, with strategic leadership skills so they can serve the church and community as Christ-centered leaders. The project director utilized curriculum-based training sessions to teach the students essential strategic leadership skills. Using leadership research built upon theological foundations, he created a ten-step training process with an acronym titled LEADERSHIP. The college plans to implement a degree in leadership communication in the near future. Thus, a byproduct of the project was that Blue Mountain College students were introduced to a new field of study as a result of the project's completion. To complement the degree in leadership communication, the college provost hopes to offer a recurring course in strategic leadership at Blue Mountain College. The planning and research completed in this project will assist in developing the strategic leadership course.
