Introduction, Workshop 11: Keeping Distress Productive

In "Harvest the Power," a Tapestry of Faith program

Solutions are achieved when "the people with the problem" go through a process together to become "the people with the solution." — Ronald A. Heifetz, contemporary author and leadership educator

This workshop, the third in the Path unit, explores conflict and difficult behavior as signs that a congregation has a deeper issue to bring forth. Participants will learn tools to discern and address the emotions and concerns that feed a congregational conflict. They will learn strategies for responding to difficult behavior and resources for managing and transforming high level or intractable congregational conflict. With a focus on deeply understanding and faithfully addressing conflict, participants explore ways adaptive leaders can "give the work back to the people."
