In this workshop, participants will develop deeper insight into why it is hard to bring change to entrenched systems, even when people in the system understand that change is needed.

Dr. Steinke will offer a way into being a leader for change within a congregation or other system during times of anxiety and the looming unknown future. His framework builds on four ideas:

  • Change in an Emotional System
  • Paddling in the Swamp
  • The New World for an Old Tradition
  • After the Enlightenment, the Laundry
