March 11
New England Region, UUA Framingham, MA United States

with Susan Beaumont

Are you stepping into unfamiliar territory where you must supervise others, or have you been supervising others for some time without a clear understanding of what you are doing? Supervision, especially in a faith-based environment, requires specific skills – probably skills you did not learn during your professional formation. This one-day workshop will introduce practical skills and tools for supervising the work of others, and aligning the work of the team with the overall goals of the congregation.

The Whole Congregation: Pastoral Leadership Guided by Systems Theory

March 20 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Mass. Conference UCC Framingham, MA United States

with Rev. Dr. Ken Reeves and Rev. Dr. Lawrence Peers

This workshop will offer an explanation of Systems Theory, its central principles, and how those principles guide pastoral leadership. It will take up the diagnosis of a congregation, and ways to calm, change, work through conflict, and deal with difficult behavior. We hope it would support your leadership in guiding your congregation in living out its mission, and in so doing, deepen and enrich the interpersonal and spiritual lives of its members. We will provide some opportunities for helping you to be aware of your own leadership narrative and how this impacts how you lead through change and uncertainty.

Leading and the Disciplines of Appreciative Inquiry

July 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

a webinar with Lawrence Peers

The disciplines of Appreciative Inquiry aim to bring about a grounded vision rather than blue-sky vision, re-design “what is” even when this causes necessary discomfort and change, and to continually tend this vision in the ongoing life of the congregation moving forward. These are disciplines that can be used in everyday leadership as well as during times of facilitating change in organizations.
