Lifework Leadership is a nine-month leadership course that runs from February to October. Classes include teaching from nationally known speakers, case studies with prominent business people, literary discussion, and practical life application. Each class examines the life of Jesus as the best example of leadership and is carefully crafted to engage leaders on issues that they face in their personal and business lives. Designed for the business professional, the class includes valuable tools and examples that can be applied to the home and the workplace.
Pretoria, the capital city of South Africa, is popularly known as the ‘Jacaranda City’ due to the thousands of Jacaranda trees planted in its streets, parks and gardens, which covers the city in a purple blanket each year during the month of October. It boasts a population of 3 million and is a mere 55km away from Johannesburg (with a population of 10 million). Pretoria is the seat of government and houses the headquarters of the main government departments and ministries. It also hosts all the foreign embassies and diplomatic missions. The city is a major commercial centre and an important industrial centre. We are building a generation of transformed business leaders who cross vocational, denominational, and racial lines to transform our homes, companies, churches, and ultimately our city. We welcome you to experience our programme as we fulfil the vision of bringing transformation to our region.
2018 ENROLLMENTS NOW OPEN
The Lifework Leadership (L2) class is an incredible opportunity for leaders to significantly and strategically connect with their peers in relationships that will enrich their personal and professional lives. The Community developed is a highlight for many. As a lifetime member of the Lifework programme, Alumni are always invited to remain engaged. They can stay connected to the “family” and continue to learn, grow and develop, through favourite speakers and new experiences each year. On top of this, leaders also gain a broader perspective of their place in the world and are challenged to view their workplace as a calling and place of incredible power to positively affect others.
L2 Alumni are challenged to be compassionate leaders of high integrity, humility and generosity. These qualities in a leader will be invaluable assets to any organization. We have continued to see our Alumni leading companies with international scope and have a seat at the highest levels of numerous organisations. Connected to the Lifework family, leaders will have the ability to connect to a wide network of local leaders and their companies as well as being a part of the global Lifework Leadership network of affiliates.
Towards the end of 2014 a group of business leaders came together with a dream to develop a strong community of Christian business leaders in Pretoria. This dream started to materialise in January 2015 when Lifework Leadership welcomed its first class. Since then we have seen that each group of leaders every year had an incredible journey where they saw God work in and through them in extraordinary ways.
We invite you to experience Lifework Leadership so that together we can have a transforming impact throughout our city in 2018!
