The Discerning Leadership Program, the UISG and the USG, offer a formation on leadership for Superiors General and General Councilors based in Africa and Asia. 


The formation will focus on the personal and spiritual leadership of the leaders to enhance their capacities to lead their teams and congregations. 


For a Congregation to access participation, the Superior General of the Congregation has to participate. It is also greatly encouraged the participation of at least 2-3 Council members of his/her congregation.



The formation will consist of 24-sessions online distributed in 12 days.
