Synod of the Northeast invites you to a Synod Leadership Webinar

How do you lead and 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?

Times like these 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.

Webinar Conversation

Rev. Susan Beaumont will facilitate a conversation that examines how Liminal seasons call for a different kind of leadership presence, one that connects the soul of leaders with the soul of the institution. The conversation will examine the leadership challenges and opportunities inherent in liminal seasons. Explore fundamental shifts in orientation that invite a more soulful presence and understand the bodies of work that will connect mission, vision and values with the soul of the organization.
