A 3-session Zoom course led by priest, researcher and revitalist Clara King. Offered in partnership with the United Church of Canada, and open to lay leaders and clergy from any denomination in the United States and Canada.
Adaptive challenges surround us in the pandemic.
In this 3-session Zoom course, you’ll discover new ways to lead adaptively with skills you already have. You’ll encounter the core theory of Adaptive Leadership in a vibrant new way. And you’ll come away with usable practices to reinvigorate your day-to-day leadership journey.
The course will cover: the six core competencies of leadership; how to understand and change the organizational culture of your congregation; and how conflict is a leadership resource you can steward wisely.
Course leader Clara King has spent 15 years studying adaptive leadership, and 9 years as a Priest leading adaptive change in the Anglican Diocese of Calgary and beyond. Clara’s dynamic, hope-filled facilitation style will refresh, empower and energize you for the leadership journey ahead.
"I took Leading Adaptively in the Fall of 2021. Rev. Clara is a brilliant teacher, leader and facilitator. She is able to bring her excellent research in the world of academia beyond just academics. She writes and leads in a very informative and yet down to earth way that is inclusive of everyone, including practitioners like myself who don't have formal theological or ministry training and don't work in academia." - Adam Cresswell, Executive Director of The Hub Community Network.
