#28 Principles of Temple Administration – Devotee Focused Temple
This is the first principle of the GBC College Course – “Principles of Temple Administration”, taken by many current and future leaders within ISKCON. It starts with the most important principle of all our management activities – care for devotees. Unfortunately this is often the principle that gets neglected. A good leader understands that the devotees must be valued and if we invest in them then projects will automatically flourish. This seminar will look at the different levels of devotees, levels of devotee care, case studies and feedback etc. This seminar will give you some clear insights and tools to inspire a culture of care for devotees.
