Professional Interim Training Series

Part 1: Transitional Religious Leadership

The Guild of Interim Religious Educators is proud to announce two linked education and training programs for religious professionals. Together, these classes comprise the GIRE Professional Interim Training Program which is designed to equip religious professionals with the knowledge and skills needed to serve congregations in transition. Registrants may take one class or both (however the first class is a prerequisite for the second). Click on link to learn more about Part Two: Adaptive Leadership Practicum.

PART 1: Transitional Religious Leadership is a foundational four-session course which provides leaders with the skills and perspectives they need on a variety of topics. Learning includes:

  • Family systems and change models
  • Exploring Unintentional Bias and the ways in which white supremacy systems impact behaviors
  • The Interim Developmental Tasks (or the work of the congregation) through a time of change
  • Introduction to adaptive leadership methodologies including diffusion of innovation and appreciative inquiry – with a focus on nurturing visionary leadership in the congregation
  • Working as a staff team: collaboration, building synergies, respecting reporting structures
  • Understanding the ways in which grief and trauma can impact congregations
  • Leaving well and ‘with joy”; paving the way for new leadership
