"Leading in a Liminal Season" with Susan Beaumont

Southbridge Hotel & Conference Center

How do you lead an 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? Such in-between times 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.

Liminal seasons call for a different kind of leadership presence, one that connects the soul of leaders with the soul of the institution.

Participants at this event will:

  • Enter a three-way conversation engaging God, the soul of the leader, and the soul of the institution.

  • Examine the leadership challenges and opportunities inherent in liminal seasons.

  • Explore three fundamental shifts in orientation that invite a more soulful leadership presence. (From knowing to unknowing, from advocating to attending, from striving to surrender.)

  • Understand four bodies of work that help to connect mission, vision and values with the soul of the organization: deepening group discernment, shaping institutional memory, clarifying purpose, and engaging emergence. 

Cost $125, a full day with Susan Beaumont which includes a full breakfast, lunch buffet and snacks.
Registration and breakfast begins at 7:00 am and the program ends at 4:30 pm.

Registration deadline: April 20, 2021
There will be a limited number of overnight accommodations available at a special rate for May 3rd.
