Following the LEAD Lay Leadership Summit in Old Orchard Beach, we wondered how we might provide additional opportunities for training and conversation throughout the year on topics relevant to leadership, particularly in a corps context. On Point webinars continue the mission of LEAD: educating, empowering, and encouraging leaders while modelling a shift towards thinking about leadership development less as a programmatic activity, and more as a continual and open-ended creative process that happens in community. Our more recent conversations are split into three videos which are accompanied by group discussion guides so that you can carry the conversation forward with your group, in your context. 

On Point is also now available in podcast form on itunes and Stitcher.
