A three-part series by Zan and Joe Tyler. Zan can also give these alone. Each workshop is designed to stand alone or to be used as a part of the series. These are appropriate for support group leaders and/or state leaders.
PART 1: A POWERFUL, SUSTAINING VISION FOR LEADERSHIP
Zan and Joe Tyler have been involved in homeschool leadership since 1985 at the local, state, and national levels. Whether you are creating a vision for your support group as a board of directors, or you simply want to provide clear direction for your family, the Tylers will inspire you as they share their own joys and frustrations of homeschool leadership. Zan and Joe will share tips for developing a powerful sustaining vision that encourages participation and engagement from those you are trying to serve. This session will include discussion about servant leadership and dealing with opposition, too!
PART 2: THE LEADERSHIP LEGACY
Our founding fathers and other pioneers have left us a rich legacy as we consider how to teach and train our children and how to value and preserve liberty. We will discuss the lessons we can learn from our history as we determine what type of legacy we need to leave for those who follow us. We will discuss six traits of servant leaders and what it takes to fill the leadership gap. Zan and Joe Tyler will talk specifically about family life and homeschool leadership so that we do not alienate our spouses or our children as we work to encourage other homeschool families. You’ll learn ways to effectively incorporate your children so that your leadership becomes a mission that unites that family.
PART 3: DEVELOPING INFLUENCE BY BRINGING OUT THE BEST IN OTHERS
As Christian homeschool leaders, we are called to be ambassadors for Christ first and foremost, and in the process we become ambassadors for the family and homeschooling. In this session, we will discuss how to present homeschooling in the best possible light. We will also discuss principles and actions that motivate and inspire others, as well as those cripple them. These principles are valuable whether you are working with children, your spouse, other homeschoolers, the media, or local officials.
