Leadership Workshop - Gordon-Conwell Institute

Leadership Workshop

Imagination at Work

God invites us to engage in our work imaginatively, weaving together meaning in the anchors of our administrative work: solving problems, leading meetings, and shaping culture (all while navigating to-lists, calendars, and a myriad of details!). This three-part workshop led by Dr. Jana Holiday will present a framework for imaginative capacity, as well as a theological reflection.

Lecture 1: Imaginative Capacity and Theological Reflection
Lecture 2: The Framework for Imaginative Capacity
Lecture 3:
Design Thinking for Problem Solving, Leading Meetings, and Shaping Culture

The workshop includes 1 hour of pre-recorded material to view prior to the event as well as live teaching and interaction with facilitator on the event date.
