Our Approach

At CLC, we model our approach after Jesus as the servant leader.  We emphasize the communitarian ethos of our Catholic faith. At the same time, we recognize that all parishes are different and that there cannot be a one-size-fits-all approach.  These are the key principles that guide the CLC’s work. 

There are two main arms under the CLC – Training & Consultancy.

Training: 

CLC offers training at various times of the year for individuals and small groups that encompass 3 leadership domains:

  • Self Leadership
  • Group leadership
  • Organisational leadership

CLC also offers customized tracks for parishes and organisations, co-curated with Parish Priests/Heads of Organisations that can be conducted at the Parish/Organization residence. Tracks may include servant leadership, empowerment retreat,  workshops on community-building, spiritual accompaniment for leaders and by leaders, dialogue, group discernment of Parish’s mission field and how to engage parishioners.

Consultancy:

CLC also provides consultancy to Parish Priests on organisational leadership matters, so that the Parish is better enabled for mission.

Our team of consultants can serve as a sounding board, advising parishes on one-off projects, or on a short or long term basis.  

Some of our core competencies include: situational audit, strategic planning and goal setting, putting together a strong leadership support structure, governance and pastoral administration.
