Drawing distinctions between adaptive challenges and technical solutions has become commonplace in congregations seeking to change, perhaps too commonplace. These terms are being overused and misused in ways that diminish their impact. We lull ourselves into thinking that we are being truly adaptive when we are really just reinforcing the status quo. In this webinar we will revisit ten basic principles that define the practice of adaptive leadership. You will be invited to rethink your understanding of what it means to be an adaptive leader.

Susan Beaumont is a consultant, author, coach, and spiritual director. She has consulted with over 100 congregations and denominational bodies across the United States and in Canada. She is known for her ground-breaking work in the leadership dynamics of large congregations. Before establishing Susan Beaumont & Associates, Susan worked for nine years as a Senior Consultant with the Alban Institute.
