“You must be willing to give up what you are, to become what you want to be.” –Orrin Woodward
It makes sense that educators would need to pursue professional development hours throughout their career in order to stay fresh in the field. There are several ways to obtain these credits and the amount required depends on the state you live in, the school you teach at, the degree you acquired and the job title you have. Most teachers will choose to attend a local community college or take classes online. While this is beneficial and certainly legitimate, what if there was a way to obtain these credit hours in a more unconventional–but functional–way?
Well, now there is! Christian school teachers can now obtain these credits by completing Life Leadership‘s LLR Corporate Education Program. Based on the New York Times bestseller, Launching a Leadership Revolution, the LLR Corporate Program is designed–not just to train employees–but to gradually and effectively develop existing talent into engaged, contributing, go-to leaders; and systemically create a permanent culture of leadership that affects every employee within the organization.
Teachers from ACSI schools who choose to use the LLR Corporate Education materials, can apply to receive 3 CEU’s per 6 month course from Kevin Swedberg, Life Member and Independent CEU provider. Contact Kevin at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please do not contact ACSI directly.)
“When a school chooses to teach leadership to their staff, faculty and students, we will begin to change the culture of our nation. Also, from a Biblical perspective, Christians are called to LEAD people to Christ. If we believe that leadership is something only certain people can or should do, we will be apprehensive to accomplish the work of the Great Commission. I believe it is vital to train believers to lead. When we realize that leadership is for everyone, and all of us are called upon at certain times throughout our lives, to lead, we will begin to have confidence to lead others to Christ.” -Kevin Swedberg (Life Leadership Member)
This approval is such a big deal because it truly is helping teachers become better teachers. Customers of Life Leadership’s LLR Corporate Program are so loyal and enthusiastic about the product because they notice the significant value of applying it to their career:
“I have used many of the books and CD’s I received through the LLR Corporate Program to teach an Introduction to Business class. I have also been able to use the materials in other courses having to do with current events, economics, worldview, and mathematics. It’s amazing when you ingest this information on a daily basis, how many ways it will fit into your life–and how many people can be impacted by the information simply because of a conversation you had with them, even if they are not personally receiving the information themselves. Our school has now developed a Leadership Training Program across the 4 years of Senior High (and we are looking at implementing the program beginning in 8th grade) which intentionally seeks to help students understand that leadership is something they will all need to be equipped for at some point in their life. Leadership is not an elected position in the student body, but rather a role they should each be equipped to play. The LLR Corporate materials have played an enormous part in shaping my thinking, which in turn has allowed me to contribute to shaping this program’s goals and methods.” -Kevin Swedberg (Life Leadership Member)
Currently, Life Leadership offers three courses of the LLR Corporate Program; however, CEU’s have only been approved for course 1 and 2. Each program includes 6 books and 24 audios; along with downloadable test questions, answers and a certificate of completion, in order to facilitate the learning process. Orrin Woodward and all of the Life Founders are proud of this program, because it literally changes the culture of the organizations that use it.
If you have completed the program (or are in the process currently), we would like your feedback!
