Life Work Leadership

The Center for Global Leadership (CGL) at Palm Beach Atlantic University (PBA) and The National Christian Foundation (NCF) of Palm Beach have partnered together to deliver Lifework Leadership to Palm Beach County and surrounding area marketplace leaders.

This new PBA-based program builds upon the 15 years of NCF’s Lifework experience (which has produced over 800 alumni) and enhances the research and design of the program in order to maximize individual and organizational impact in each of the participants’ lives.

What is Lifework Leadership?

Lifework is an eight-month leadership experience that runs from September to May. Classes include teachings from nationally known speakers, case studies with prominent business people, current literature discussions and practical life and leadership applications.

Each class examines the life of Jesus as the best example of a leader and influencer, as well as corporate leadership best practices. This course is crafted to engage professionals on issues they face in their business and personal lives.

Who is Lifework For?

Lifework is for men and women who are recognized as corporate influencers. Do you hold a position of leadership over individuals or teams within your organization?  If so, Lifework is for you. The program is designed to develop character traits that have both personal and professional impact, as well as elevate your leadership effectiveness.

Lifework Leadership is designed specifically for business professionals and organizational leaders. We desire our class to reflect our community, and our 800+ Alumni in the South Florida region have benefited from the challenging speakers, thought-provoking discussions, and meaningful local connections with other leaders.
