In a time of uncertainty, when everything around us is changing constantly—We light our chalice to remind ourselves of our grounding in our faith.

Alice Anacheka-Nasemann

To survive and lead creatively and responsively in uncertain times, religious leaders need to understand the tools and behaviors that can help inspire and support out-of-the-box thinking and collaboration. Join leaders of the Guild of Interim Religious Educators for this four-part course. This program is best suited to those who have had some grounding in adaptive learning and change processes and those who have completed the UUA Professional Interim Training course (or similar training).

We’ll explore the following areas:

  • Systems Thinking
  • Unintentional Biases and Dismantling White-centric Systems
  • Acceleration of Change Theory
  • Innovation Theory & Lean Experimentation
  • Appreciative Inquiry Techniques
  • Understanding Cultural Icebergs
  • Adaptive Change
  • Building a Community of Communities


Facilitators

The program is facilitated by experienced transitional religious leaders Deborah Weiner, Lily Rappaport, and Michele T. Grove. Guest presenters include Rev. Patrice Curtis (Assistant Director, UUA Transitions Office) and Paula Cole Jones (independent congregational consultant).


Dates

The course will meet on four Fridays: January 22, 29 and February 5 and 12, from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST. Participants will be divided into small learning communities to further explore topics.


Who Can Apply?

Individuals who have completed the UUA Professional Interim Training course will receive priority registration for this class. This course is an advanced-level training. Members of LREDA, UUMA, AUUA, AUUMM, and UUAMP who have completed transitional leadership education are also invited to apply.
