Helping Pastors Thrive Fall 2020 Virtual Workshop: How to Lead When You Don’t Know Where You’re Going

Monday, October 5  |  9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (EDT)


Workshop led by Dr. Susan Beaumont
–Minister, Consultant, Coach, Spiritual Director & Author

Based on her book How to Lead When You Don’t Know Where You’re Going: Leading in a Liminal Season.

How do you lead a congregation stuck between an ending and a new beginning—when the old way of doing things no longer works but a way forward is not yet clear? Beaumont calls such in-between times liminal seasons—threshold times when the continuity of tradition disintegrates and uncertainty about the future fuels doubt and chaos. In a liminal season it simply is not helpful to pretend we understand what needs to happen next. But leaders can still lead.

Susan Beaumont is a consultant, author, coach, and spiritual director.  She has consulted with over one hundred congregations and denominational bodies across the United States and in Canada.  She is known for her ground-breaking work in the leadership dynamics of large congregations.

Before establishing her own practice, Susan worked for nine years as a Senior Consultant with the Alban Institute. Susan has also served on the faculty of two business schools, teaching graduate level courses in leadership, management and organizational behavior.  She consulted with nonprofit organizations and corporate clients in leadership development and change management. She has corporate experience in human resource management and organizational development.
