About Catholic Leadership Institute:
Now in its 23rd year of operation, Catholic Leadership Institute has reached national prominence; ministering with priests, diocesan and lay leaders in over 125 Dioceses in the United States and Canada. The two-year ongoing priestly formation curriculum Good Leaders, Good Shepherds combines the science of leadership with the teachings of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church. Through this process, priests are taught more efficient and effective ways to lead, inspire and motivate their flocks. In May 2009, Catholic Leadership Institute launched a parish leadership program for diocesan and parish staff leaders titled, Tending the Talents, a complementary curriculum to Good Leaders, Good Shepherds that seeks to strengthen the overall quality of ministerial relationships and increase the quality of parish life and leadership. Catholic Leadership Institute evolved its post-graduate services to support the ongoing application of best practices, continued formation in leadership skills and intentional fraternal support begun in Good Leaders, Good Shepherds. These services are offered through a blended learning program of online activities, classroom discussions, and parish application.
With the encouragement of its partner bishops, Catholic Leadership Institute sponsors unprecedented ongoing leadership formation for the Catholic episcopacy. These sessions focus on instinctive leadership behaviors, developed values and versatility as a bishop. Other topics offered include Power & Grace of Vision, Discerning, Defining, and Implementing Pastoral Priorities, Effective Media and Communications Strategies, and Leadership in the New Evangelization.
In 2011, Catholic Leadership Institute expanded its services, once again, to include diocesan consulting. In this area, Catholic Leadership Institute works directly with the bishops and their teams to develop a tailored diocesan strategy. In 2014, a new Leadership tool: Disciple-Maker Index, designed to measure an individual parishioner’s spiritual growth and the parish’s overall health and effectiveness, was piloted in 22 parishes.
