Good Enough: An introduction to leadership thinking and practice

  • Course Dates: Thu 18 March, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm

This course will introduce some of the classic and current thinking about leadership. It suggests that leadership thinking has been characterised by unhelpful counsels of perfection and proposes that we be ready to settle for “good enough”.

The morning begins with an overview of classic approaches, including those which see leadership as the management of discrete parts of the organisation and those which see leadership as primarily about the nurturing of human relationships.

This sets the scene for a fuller exploration of systemic or cybernetic approaches, and those which see leadership as psychological challenge demanding, above all, emotional intelligence. Participants will take away an overview of some of the most influential approaches to leadership, ideas about what these might mean in the context of the church and application to their own contexts.

It will be particularly useful to those wrestling with the question of how to create, manage or cope with change.
