About this Event

Cost: Free to all Presbyterian pastors, sessions, church and presbytery leaders (including COMs)

HOW TO LEAD WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOING How do you lead an organization stuck between an ending and a new beginning—when the old ways of doing things no longer work but a way forward is not yet clear? Such in-between times are called liminal seasons—threshold times when the continuity of tradition disintegrates and uncertainty about the future fuels doubt and chaos. In a liminal season it simply is not helpful to pretend we understand what needs to happen next. But leaders can still lead. Liminal seasons call for a different kind of leadership presence, one that connects the soul of leaders with the soul of the institution. Participants in this workshop will:

• Understand the dynamics of liminality in organizational settings

• Examine the leadership challenges and opportunities inherent in liminal seasons.

• Explore three fundamental shifts in orientation that invite a more soulful leadership presence. (From knowing to unknowing, from advocating to attending, from striving to surrender.)

SUSAN BEAUMONT is a consultant, coach and spiritual director who has worked with hundreds of congregations and denominational bodies across the United States.She is known for engaging, cutting-edge organizational practices filtered through the lens of careful spiritual and theological reflection.

PRIOR TO THIS WORKSHOP registered participants will receive an electronic workbook to be used during our time together. COMs, sessions, and pastor cohorts are encouraged to attend. All are invited but not expected to purchase Beaumont's book "How to Lead When You Don't Know Where You're Going" prior to the workshop.
