Mentoring Leadership – Workshop 6

Tim and I returned to zoom for the sixth of a series of workshops with members of the Transform Southern Sydney mentoring group. We started with a Biblical reflection about Naomi and Ruth and then considered ways leaders deceive themselves and strategies to grow in self-awareness to combat this. To finish we spent time looking at burnout and the importance of Sabbath for emotional health.

Leading Change and Transition: Seminar 2 (Live in Sydney)

Transform Southern Sydney has been hosting a series of seminars for leaders on change and transition leadership. My associate Luke and I were able to be live (for a change from zoom) in Sydney for the second of the series. We met at the newly fitted ministry centre in Hurstville for an afternoon of training. Key topics covered in this second seminar included managing resistance to change through: Understanding church systems and their natural tendency to stability, Applying Katzenbach’s Critical Few Theory and using Kegan and Lahey’s Immunity to the Change process.

All notes and resources are now in our team dropbox.

Mentoring Leadership – Workshop 5

After four training sessions on Zoom last year, it was great to be face to face with members of the Transform Southern Sydney mentoring group today. The training is continuing into year two with an emphasis on mentoring leaders for their growth and development. The first year explored the skills and dynamics of mentoring.
