Tempered Resilience: Becoming an Adaptive Leader

Blog Post March 7, 2022

Webinar and Study Groups (via wnccumc.org) 


Author, Tod Bolsinger will lead a webinar on
March 15 at noon with Bishop Carter moderating.

Information about the webinar can be found here.

Tod Bolsinger provides a vision and language for
how we address the trials and crucible of
leadership in the midst of change, cultivating
leadership not just to survive but to thrive.

Clergy colleague and study groups will be offered
for 8 sessions following the webinar.  One will be
sponsored by each district and there will be a
conference-wide group for part-time local pastors
and others for whom the time works best.

There is no cost to participate, but participants
