Welcome! Classes begin August 2017
We’re so glad you’ve stopped by to learn more about the Townsend Institute for Leadership & Counseling at Concordia University Irvine. What makes our graduate programs unique? I will personally instruct you through a 4-day Kick-off Conference, along with monthly sessions in our virtual classroom. Our Master's programs in Counseling and Organizational Leadership, along with our Certificate programs in Executive Coaching, Counseling, and Organizational Leadership, are based on the latest neuroscience, high performance and attachment research, and biblically-based content from my books, writings, and teachings. They’re founded on two principles: your Competence - increasing your skills, strengths and expertise; and your Character - those internal abilities that you'll need to excel at work and in relationships. The Competence & Character model equips you with the ability to optimize your competencies and character along with those you lead and help. We invite you to consider how this program could transform your life & work.
