Rep’s Link – Apr 2016

Level I Adult

This month we continue with our course Knowing and Understanding God and our text: Experiencing God by Blackaby, Blackaby and King. This is a two month course.

For those persons who are starting or continuing their electives, go ahead and put in your orders on the Google Spreadsheet ELP Monthly Order Form and Grade Sheet Edited.

Level I Adolescent

Our course for the Adolescent track is The Art of Self Leadership and the text: Habitudes I  – The Art of Self Leadership by Tim Elmore. This book is part of a series of 3 books. They are based on the fact that leadership isn’t merely one-dimensional – it runs 360 degrees – we influence others all around us. The leadership journey begins with self-leadership – we must lead ourselves before we lead anyone else.

Monthly Book Orders and Grades

Southeast region Rep’s can go to Google Drive and search for ELP Monthly Order Form and Grade Sheet Edited. Look for your center’s name in the tabs at the bottom and fill in your information. No need to save or email the spreadsheet (Google Drive saves it and we can access the info from my Drive). If you place an initial order on the form and update the order later (i.e. add 2 more books) after we have ordered your books, please send and email to andree.aiken@teenchallenge.cc. All new applications must be in by the 10th of the month for students starting the 15th.

Rep’s Link – Oct 2015

Level I Adult

Our new course is Team Building and our text: 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player by John Maxwell. In this course you will learn the personal characteristics necessary for becoming an effective team player. Maxwell outlines the success of team players who have been:

  • Intentional – making every action count toward a long-term goal
  • Relational – focused on others
  • Selfless – willing to take a subordinate role for the team
  • Tenacious – hardworking and optimistic in the face of setbacks

Level I Adolescent

Our course for the Adolescent track is Self-Leadership and our text: Habitudes I – the 51i+vfRPCtL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_Art of Self-leadership  by Dr. Tim Elmore. We believe leadership is a 360-degree proposition. The leadership journey begins with self-leadership; we must lead ourselves before we lead anyone else.

Level II – May 2014

Welcome!

This month we want to welcome Hannah Larson (Columbus Girl’s) to the Level II!

Core Courses

Okay, so we are on the very last post of People First by Jack Lannom. Remember there is no test for this course. Email or slow-mail me (andree.aiken@teenchallenge.cc) your Personal Action Plan (PAP) fill-ins along with your assessment (first pages) and I’ll grade them and return to you.

The next core course is Strategic Planning and Decision Making and our text is Exec Values PICExecutive Values by Kurt Senske. “The book combines two aspects of organizational leadership not often mentioned in the same breath: getting results and integrating Christian values within an organization.” Executive Values is a “how-to” book designed to help you succeed in your chosen career without compromising your faith and losing your soul in the process. The first post will be up on the forum Monday, May 19th.

Electives

Congratulations to Phillip Talle’ (Jacksonville) and Sandra Marotta (Southwest FL Admin) for moving on to your electives!
