For the leadership course that I will be teaching at a seminary in Tokyo the last week of August (27-31), I would like to use a few video clips to help illustrate some of the significant points. One of the things I will be hopefully teaching these Japanese pastors and church leaders is that we need to be teaching in a style that is relevant to today’s culture with a goal of transformation rather than passing along information. I am trying to make my own teaching style as interesting and relevant as possible.
Since I am terrible at remembering scenes in movies, I’m wondering if a few of you might have some ideas that you could pass onto me (either by a comment or an email). The following are some of the topics that could be helpful to have an illustration from a video: (note that I will need to find the video in Japanese, so it can’t be too obscure):
1. Servant Leadership (ie a clip that shows a leader who is really serving his/her people)
2. The power of encouragement and praise
3. Teaching that was inspirational and transformational
4. A leader who goes through a paradigm shift
5. A leader or coach who goes the extra mile in encouraging/day-to-day training
6. A person who goes through a major transition and through that undergoes transformation.
7. The power of synergy/collaboration.
Any of these examples would be really helpful. If you could tell me what the actual scene is (and about where it is in the movie) that would be great. Thanks for your help, and your prayers as I continue to work away at the lesson plans!
