How do we lead when we don’t know where we’re going?
How do you lead an organization stuck between an ending and a new beginning—when the old way of doing things no longer works but a way forward is not yet clear? The Rev. Susan Beaumont calls such in-between times 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.
Join us for a workshop to explore the ways that leaders can navigate these difficult times. Tuesday, January 12 and Thursday, January 14, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, via Zoom. Register at Eventbrite.
