Passing the Baton: Transitions and Continuity in Leadership

General Assembly 2015 Event 357

Program Description

Congregational leaders often feel as though their institutions operate not on the basis of ”20 years of institutional experience,” but on the basis of “1 year of experience, 20 times over.” This workshop addressed two paths a congregation can take to break this cycle: long-term, multidiscipline planning for leader development and effective leadership transitions.
