management course

i’ll be taking a management course in the near future.. for much of my life, many or most of my skill development has been in the theoretical and philosophical side of life, and that perhaps is still my preference.. (to retrace: engineering, computer science, theology, psychology) and now that I’m in the “real world”, I’ve had some great opportunities to work in the realm of the non-profit social sector (to use a Peter Drucker term), with a private foundation.. and that means it’d be a part of my personal development to gain some understanding in management skills, as that is a value in our foundation to empower ministry leaders with practical operational skills, as a part of general revelation and common grace.. there’s significant segments of Christendom that over-spirtualizes life, and ignores and disdains practical skills of management; granted, while there are differences in establishing spiritual communities vs. corporate businesses, there are similarities and transferrable knowledge & skills in operating and managing a group of people, in communication, in building relationships, in facilitating accountability, in planning, etc. So it’s definitely a learning curve for me..
