Develop advanced leadership skills to learn how to face your congregation’s toughest challenges: The ones we don’t have ready answers for. The “Adaptive Leadership” framework, pioneered by Harvard’s Dr. Ronald Heifetz, is more than a toolbox of tips. It will change the way you think about your own leadership and will equip you to lead through any change, welcome or unwelcome.
For the best results, take this course with several other congregational leaders as a team. You will use the concepts and strategies taught in the course to address a real case study from your own congregation.
Optional Text: The Practice of Adaptive Leadership By Ronald A. Heifetz, Marty Linsky, Alexander Grashow
