  • Orient leaders to the changing nature of leadership in our culture of discontinuous change

We know that there is a leadership gap in the church today. Many people are seeing not only a lack of new and capable leaders in their church but also a gap between current reality and the church’s history of hierarchical leadership.

We also see an opportunity for real change. As the world is swirling around church and parachurch organizations becomes more complex, less stable, and increasingly diverse, it demands new ways of thinking about leadership. 

  • A Systems Approach. We believe that leadership is not so much about the individual leader as it as about changes in the whole system. Our programs and courses are generally designed to give leaders the ability to see systems, understand them, and to develop strategies to shape the system in ways that allow it to be more adaptive and resilient.
  • A Collaborative Approach. We believe in the active involvement of the in-house people as well as senior management in the design of all elements of change. This ensures that there is a healthy balance between external and internal voices, so that the full system can benefit.
  • Affective Learning Strategies. Our experience in working with a variety churches and community service providers is that the combination of cohort-based learning, self-reflection, action learning projects and coaching leads to the most significant and sustained behaviour change. 
  • Forward-thinking. How do you prepare for an uncertain, often turbulent future? We offer new ways of thinking, based in theological reflection and on the ground experience. How do you develop new lenses to see your organization?
