The Arrow Leadership Program is a world-class Christian leadership development program that includes residential learning experiences, practical leadership training, 360 degree assessment feedback, a personalized leadership development plan, life-changing mentoring relationships, on-going academic education, and more.
Personal 360-Degree Assessment Process: Leaders participate in an intensive assessment process, which includes carefully selected leadership and temperament inventories. 360-degree feedback provides honest and objective feedback to aid self-awareness and developmental focus.
On-Site Residential Learning Experiences: On-site residential weeks occur in 6-month intervals. This format allows for deep learning, and integration of skills into the leader's life, leadership, and organization.
Wholistic Approach: We believe that there is more to leadership than mastering competencies. So, we take a wholistic approach to help you grow spiritually, emotionally, relationally, and physically. We also invite Arrow spouses to participate through the assessment process and through attending the last two days of residential three.
World Class Faculty: Our world-class faculty are trainers and practitioners who bring a unique mix of expert knowledge and real life experience.
Personal Leadership Plan: A highly personal leadership plan based on assessment and coaching insights is prepared by each leader targeting their specific leadership and organizational needs.
Coaching and Mentoring: Leaders are paired with a Leadership Partner who meets one-on-one with them at each residential to facilitate personal reflection on leadership challenges, the assessment process, the creation of a leadership plan, as well as spiritual, relational and character issues.
Peer Leadership and Mentoring: Leaders are linked with a leadership cluster of 4-5 other participants. These clusters provide opportunity for ongoing encouragement and input in a confidential, continuous and intentional environment of peer learning, encouragement, support and reflection. Additionally, leaders meet regularly with a trained local mentor.
Network: Arrow leaders join the Arrow community, a worldwide network of graduates, faculty, and mentors providing on-going leadership support, development, and opportunities.
Work & Study: The Arrow Leadership program has been specifically created for leaders who are actively working, giving leaders opportunity to integrate and reflect on what they have learned in their personal leadership context.
Selective Enrollment: Arrow is skilled and prayerful in the selection of participants for each Arrow Leadership cohort. Individuals are screened for emotional and spiritual health, a willingness to learn, experience, evidence of exceptional leadership, trustworthiness, and a commitment to the entire process.
