Opportunity Leadership WebinarMarch 31, 2022 (Jackson, Miss.) - Belhaven University President Dr. Roger Parrott will host the Opportunity Leadership Webinar April 26, 3 p.m. (CST) for alumni. This special webinar will focus on key concepts from his book, “Opportunity Leadership: Stop Planning and Start Getting Results.”

In his book, Dr. Parrott challenges leaders to develop an “Opportunity Leadership” mindset, in which they see God-directed results like never before. In plain language, he guides readers in developing traits to focus their leadership outlook on untapped opportunities. Further, he provides a step-by-step plan for ministry organizations and churches to create organization-wide tendencies that enable them to respond to opportunities with expediency, adeptness, and energy.

The University will be giving away signed copies of Dr. Parrott's book to 10 attendees.
The webinar will provide a detailed path for creating a ministry culture, focused on capturing new opportunities and paradigm-shifting challenges, such as:

  • Leading without a plan is the plan
  • Making decisions that don't just solve the problem
  • Practicing future-focused evaluation
  • Emulating baseball managers instead of football coaches
  • Embracing speed
  • Getting comfortable with risk
  • Learning to love roadblocks

“I'm glad we are setting up this time with Belhaven alumni to share these concepts that challenge what has become the norm in planning,” said Dr. Parrott. “The reaction to the ideas of the book from business, non-profit, and church leaders has been overwhelming.Dr. Parrott adds, “As president of this University, the most important decision I made was to let go of traditional long-range planning and instead create a culture and outlook prepared to capture God-given opportunities.”
