An IAF Northwest regional initiative to transform leaders and institutions through the practices and principles of organizing
What is Transformational Leadership?
Transformational Leadership brings leaders together to shift their institutions to become more effective, relational, reflective and action oriented through the arts and practices of organizing. With current organizational theory as a framework, Transformational Leadership invites leaders to analyze and build strategies to address the adaptive challenges facing them. Leaders work with teams within their institution and in a collaborative cohort of other leaders locally and regionally to learn, experiment, hold one another accountable and carry through the difficult work of leadership.
“Again like all organizations, you have two choices: to continue to do what you always have done (because that’s the way you do things) or to reorganize (and thereby reenergize) the way you do business.” —Effective Organizing for Congregational Renewalby Mike Gecan, Metro IAF
Who should participate?
Primary institutional leaders who desire to shift the culture of their organizations using the arts and practices of organizing and are open to working with a team within their institution as well as colleagues doing similar work in their respective institutions will find Transformational Leadership helpful.
“Having been connected to organizing work and adaptive leadership training for over ten years, I find the combining of these resources, as done in the recent conference led by the IAF Northwest Region, makes for more effective systemic change. I strongly support it.” —Bishop Michael F Keys, Alaska Synod ELCA after attending Introductory Transformational Leadership Retreat
