So next week is a special week.
I’ll be doing a five part blog series about change that I want you to shape. In fact, it will be 100% based on your questions about change.
So to prepare, this week I want to hear your toughest (and every day) questions about leading organizational change. Just leave a comment below, and I’ll use your comments and questions to create next week’s blog series. I hope to answer as many as I can, so don’t be shy.
All of this is to help launch something I’m really excited about.
Next Monday, December 10th is the official release date for my new book about leading change, called Leading Change Without Losing It.
The book is focused on five strategies to help any leader in any situation overcome the inevitable resistance and opposition that comes when you introduce change.
My passion for writing on this subject stems from our story of leading change in both historic congregations and a church plant over the last 17 years.
Prior to starting Connexus Church five years ago, I led the transition of three small, declining mainline congregations into a single, rapidly growing congregation. It’s not exaggeration to say that we’ve changed absolutely everything since we’ve started, and that we’ve faced — and overcome – significant opposition. I wrote the book because I want to share the transferrable principles that can help other leaders go further faster.
My prayer is that God will use the book for two main purposes:
To help leaders navigate how to lead change when they face opposition.
To give leaders the courage they need to navigate the resistance they encounter.
We’ll be celebrating the launch of Leading Change Without Losing It for a full week, from Monday, December 10th – Monday, December 17th.
During launch week, we’ll have some great promotional pricing and some fun give aways. All of this will be just in time to have everything land in your mailbox just in time for Christmas – and of course instantly if you buy the Kindle or iBooks version.
While the book is actually available now, please wait to buy it until next week. It will be great to launch it together!
So…back to the blog series.
What are your questions about change? I’d love to hear the things you’re struggling with:
What you dream about
What’s blocking your dream
Who’s blocking it (no names, but you know what I mean)
Which obstacles seem insurmountable
The dynamics of change you struggle with most
I’d love to hear from senior leaders, elders, volunteers, staff members – anyone who’s frustrated with the lack of progress on change. I think it’s going to be a great discussion next week. I hope the posts will be practical, helpful and timely.
So…what are you struggling with? Go!
