A Tree Planted: Leading Change in Tumultuous Times

Guiding an organization through times of change is one of the most challenging tasks of leadership. In an upcoming workshop at the Iliff School of Theology, faculty member Dr. Kristina Lizardy-Hajbi will offer a number of frameworks for understanding change, as well as strategic practices for leading change in congregations and nonprofit organizations.
Participants will:
  • Examine social, emotional, and spiritual perspectives on change
  • Re-imagine change as a naturally-occurring phenomenon to be embraced (or at least accepted)
  • Recognize the effects of initiating change within an organization, and how leaders can anticipate and successfully respond to these effects
  • Identify habits and practices for leadership that prioritize care of self and professional longevity

The workshop, titled A Tree Planted: Leading Change in Tumultuous Times, is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 23 at Iliff's main campus at 2323 E. Iliff Ave. in Denver. Registration for the day is $89 (discounts and group rates are available), and this event will also be available as a live, online event for those who are not in the Denver area.
