The power to engage and lead change cannot be fully grasped apart from the spiritual journey. Research shows that the journey of growing up and waking up in Christ parallels the journey of leading intentional change for the flourishing of our communities.

Only as we grow up into spiritual maturity and awaken to a deepened relationship with the Triune God are we prepared to to respond to the call to build the new. No longer can we continue to to fix the old, hoping it will be sufficient.

This morning workshop will explore the spiritual formation of leaders as it informs leading intentional change.  God’s call to live resurrection with passion and partnership in a changing world.  This requires that leaders connect soul with Source for the flourishing of community.

The shape our our time will focus on:

  • Understanding and applying Intentional Change Theory to our work;
  • Tools & Resources for equipping our teams;
  • The integral relationship between our spiritual formation of growing up and waking up in Christ and our leadership.

We live in a threshold time, rich with missional possibility, even amidst the uncertainty. For such a time as this, we have been called to serve with energy, intelligence, imagination and love!

What will you gain:

  • A model for the spiritual formation of leaders in the church, community and workplace.
  • An understanding of how to lead intentional change.
  • How (and when) to engage your team and congregation/organization in the change process.
  • Tools and resources for leading change.
