Change and Conflict Skills for Leadership Development

Change and Conflict Skills are part of the twelve recommended leadership development competencies.

Change Skills include:

  • Understanding the dynamics of change and being able to engage in change strategies.
  • Being able to identify technical vs. adaptive challenges and respond accordingly.

Conflict Skills include:

  • Understanding the difference between unhealthy and creative conflict.
  • Being able to diffuse unhealthy conflict.
  • Being able to be present to and engage in healthy conflict.

Core Values

We are the “Living Tradition” that continually engages with our practices and beliefs to discern the “permanent” from the “transient.” We know that we must continually breathe new life into our congregations.


  • Practice one “change of the Day.”
  • Switch roles with someone—at work, at play, at church or with the family.
  • Spend time reflecting on specific changes using different models of change.
  • Understand your own personality type or style when under stress using your favorite personality typing system (e.g. Myers-Briggs, Enneagram, etc.).
