Clergy coaching for change and resilient leadership:
A Pastoral Excellence Network training for new & experienced clergy coaches

In times of exponential change within religious organizations and the larger world, clergy leaders can hone their capacities to be spiritual and resilient leaders of purposeful change. Clergy coaching is a trans-disciplinary approach to helping clergy leaders prepare, excel, learn, and lead in this time of opportunity and challenge for congregations and religious organizations.

This training is for both new and experienced clergy coaches who seek a grounding in the fundamental perspectives and practices of coaching and also want to develop their capacities to help clergy in the processes of change and resilience. The training program utilizes a praxis approach in which perspectives and practices of coaching inform one another. Participants can expect to gain new understandings of coaching for change and resilient leadership. There will be opportunities to practice these understandings during the training. This event will launch clergy coach communities of practice for those interested in on-going learning with other clergy coaches.
