Tyndale Centre for Leadership: Leadership Seminar

Making a Difference in Business and Not-for-Profits with Dr. R. Paul Stevens and Dr. Rick Goossen

"Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value" - Albert Einstein

Making a difference in the business or not-for-profit world is a challenging task. It is even more difficult trying to make a mark while still holding onto who we are and what we value. Dr. Stevens and Dr. Goossen will be leading a dialogue that examines and explores the relationship between the demands of business and the demands of the soul. This seminar will consider the strategic importance of personal and societal transformation.

Guided by Dr. Stevens and Dr. Goossen, you will join in a discussion of various dimensions of the integration of faith and work, including:

  • Business is in the Creator's original intention and the critical implications when examining this.
  • Business and not-for-profits are strategic and exciting mission fields.
  • Innovation and excellence in entrepreneurial leadership is needed for business, churches and not-for-profits.
