How to Lead When You Don't Know Where You're Going : Leading in a Liminal Season

Description

How to Lead When You Don't Know Where You are Going is a practical book of hope for tired and weary leaders who are in danger of defining this era of ministry in terms of failure or loss. This book does not attempt to describe where the church is headed; rather, it helps leaders stand firm in a disoriented state, learning from their mistakes and leading despite the confusion.
This book lays out leadership tasks appropriate for liminal seasons. It blends sound organizational practices with a contemplative leadership stance-an attitude of wonder and an openness to discovery. The book begins by inviting a fundamental shift in the spiritual orientation of the leader, and then moves on to explore the soulfulness of the institution. Author Susan Beaumont introduces four types of work that are appropriate for organizations in a liminal season: clarifying institutional vocation, shaping institutional memory, deepening communal discernment, and nurturing emergence.
