Event description: 

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? 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 at this event will:

Enter a three-way conversation engaging God, the soul of the leader, and the soul of the institution.

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.)

Understand four bodies of work that help to connect mission, vision and values with the soul of the organization: deepening group discernment, shaping institutional memory, clarifying purpose, and engaging emergence.
