Bishops, Deans and Archdeacons

The TLI Leadership Programme aims to equip Bishops, Archdeacons and Deans to engage more effectively with their leadership responsibilities. We also invite diocesan secretaries to join the Programme as full participants for the particular experience and insight that they bring.

The programme offers spiritual refreshment and renewal, new perspectives, insights and tools for leadership, contributing to creative ways of responding to change, and building a stronger network of personal support. Participants find enormous value in sharing experiences with senior clergy from other dioceses, in cross-fertilising ideas, and in giving mutual encouragement with honesty and humour.

The programme consists of two 5-day residentials at Canterbury and Durham respectively, connected by a rule of life. By the end of the six-month programme, senior clergy should return to their respective ministries with new insights and heightened confidence in their own ability to exercise effective leadership in a fast-changing environment.
