Leadership Survey

Dear Colleagues,
I would like to request your participation in a survey designed to gather important information about leadership and our profession. This survey is designed to help professionals answer the question, "Am I keeping up-to-date in my practice?" The data will be used to inform us how we are doing in practice, and to identify ongoing professional development needs.
Recent survey data by the Carnegie Foundation indicates 80% of former seminary students report significant practice gaps in their preparation for ministry. Seminary alumni/ae report not feeling adequately prepared to address some of the pastoral concerns they faced, including the leadership and management roles they assumed after graduation.
Because many of us who are trained as clinicians and chaplains are now being called upon to demonstrate competency (knowledge and skills) in management and organizational leadership, I am seeking to find out where you received training (if you did), and if you did not receive explicit training, what leadership knowledge and skills you need in your current practice.
The results of this national survey will be presented at the 2010 APC and ACPE national conferences. The results will also be distributed to the participating organizations and made available upon request. Your contribution will add an important voice to the future of our professional learning community.
This survey is administered through a web-based survey. It is completely confidential and your email address will not be required. It will take approximately 10-15 minutes of your time to complete. The survey is located at https://secure.healthcarechaplaincy.org/checkbox/Survey.aspx?i=89e2bcf886864141b9d38cb4de68471e 
At the end of the survey you will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for a $50 gift card to Amazon.com.  For those wishing to enter the drawing, you will need to include your email address. After the drawing your email address will be deleted.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this survey, please contact me at mmontonye@healthcarechaplaincy.org.
Thank you in advance for your participation.
