Nathaniel Academy of Training Skills : Each One Help One Project
To develop modern Leaders who have a strong love for God, a growing godly character and a high level of managerial competence. Our programmes are intended to build capacity and empower people to develop and affect future generations.
To collectively unite the training strengths of Business Leaders, seminaries, local churches and parachurch ministries resulting in the holistic development of leadership excellence. Our constant endeavour is to raise the standard of leadership in society and through the application of ethics raise the quality of service in business and industry for the revelation of the glory of God among the nations of the earth. Even though NATS has a strong focus on Christian Leadership programmes, it also conducts regular skills development programmes which include English and IT Proficiency .
Our leadership development seminars are divided up into three key areas:
● Experiential Leadership: In experiential programmes, participants will undergo a strengths analysis and personality profile, learning about themselves and gaining an understanding of others as well. They will also learn theory of small group dynamics, practical small group leadership skills.
● Foundational Leadership: These seminars cover some of the basic elements of leadership on which we then build the remainder of the workshop.
● Organizational Leadership: These seminars give you the tools and insights to create and implement a strategic plan, manage change successfully and establish a sustainable succession plan for your organization.
Leadership of the Institute comprises of a Board of Trustees and a Board of Management , and several regional and project Coordinating Committees. Members are chosen from among committed men and women with a proven track record that include Pastors, Ministry leaders and Businessmen.
