Leading in a Liminal Season with Rev. Susan Beaumont
Liminality refers to the quality of ambiguity or disorientation that occurs during transition, when a person or group of people is in between something that has ended and something else that is not yet ready to begin. During this webinar, we introduce liminality and explore the challenges and opportunities facing organizations in liminal space. We will explore this pandemic season as a liminal season requiring a unique leadership stance and a different body of leadership work.
The Rev. Susan Beaumont is an ordained minister in the American Baptist Churches, USA. Susan has worked with hundreds of congregations and denominational bodies across the United States and Canada. She is known for her ground-breaking work in the leadership dynamics of large congregations. For more information, check out her website: www.susanbeaumont.com.
Tempered Resilience - How Leaders are Formed in the Crucible of Change with Rev. Dr. Tod Bolsinger
Ask any leader and she will tell you that leading change is hard work. But the hardest part of all? It's the part that almost none of us expect. The most soul-sucking thing for most leaders is not the challenge of a changing world, but overcoming the resistance of our own people to make the changes they need to survive and thrive.
Tod Bolsinger, author of Tempered Resilience and Canoeing the Mountains, will share the insights gleaned from 30 years of ministry leadership, being a professor of leadership formation, and a coach and consultant to ministry leaders all over the world.
