Creative Leadership — Michael Barlowe — part 2 of 4

This session on creative leadership by the Rev. Cn. Michael Barlowe introduces the ideas of technical and adaptive challenges and leadership. He suggests that the biggest challenge facing the church today is not declining membership or income but that the church has not changed many of its structures as the world and cultures have changed; the church has lost its influence and place of privilege, but still acts as though it has not. After explaining technical and adaptive challenges, he challenges vestries and bishop’s committees to look at challenges they face to discern whether technical or adaptive solutions are needed.
