Activity 5: Adaptive Leadership (20 minutes), Workshop 11: Keeping Distress Productive

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

Materials for Activity

  • Sheets of poster board, one for every two or three participants
  • Colored markers to share

Preparation for Activity

  • Arrange your space to allow groups of two or three participants to work with poster board and markers.

Description of Activity

Ask: Bearing in mind all you have learned and experienced in our Harvest the Power workshops, what are important practices for leaders facing adaptive challenges? Invite participants to move into groups of two or three and design a poster of "Best Practices for Adaptive Leadership." Invite them to leave a third of the space open at the bottom of their posters. Instruct them to express best practices in their own words. Tell participants they will have about ten minutes to work, and acknowledge that their lists may be incomplete.

Invite each pair or triad to post and present their list. If you will do Workshop 12 of Harvest the Power, save the posters for that workshop
