1. The Heart of a Leader

This session emphasizes the need for leaders with positive and faith-filled hearts, as negativity reflects inner defeat, justifies itself, and leads to destructive consequences. Embracing God’s Word and cultivating a positive attitude are essential for effective leadership and a successful life.

2. The Deity and Mission of Jesus

This session emphasizes the importance of cultivating a pure and truthful heart for effective leadership and successful living. By allowing God’s Word to discern and address the root issues in one’s heart, individuals can overcome deception, confusion, and negative behaviors, leading to a life aligned with God’s plans and purposes.

3. Your Heart Determines Your Success in Life

This session highlights the significance of a prosperous heart for effective leadership and successful living. By educating and anchoring the soul in God’s Word, being accountable, and boasting in the Lord, individuals can experience God’s pleasure and prosper in all areas of life.

4. Leaders or Followers

This session discusses the essence of genuine leadership, emphasizing the need for servant-hearted, exemplary leaders who rise above the crowd’s mentality. True leadership involves challenging others, leading by example, and giving people something to follow, even if it means stretching and disturbing the comfort zones of those being led.

5. Pitfalls of Visionaries

This session discusses the opposition faced by a man who received spiritual vision after being blind, highlighting the challenges from different groups representing the spirit of analysis, familiarity, religion, unbelief, and fear. Despite the opposition, the lesson encourages individuals to be committed to God’s vision for their lives and not be ruled by others’ perceptions or limitations, but instead, rise up and fulfill their purpose with godly confidence.
