Dori2011-smian-ghostranch08Leadership Development Mornings

Join Ian Evison and Dori Davenport Thexton for Leadership Development workshops, November 19 at First Unitarian of St. Louis. Teams from your congregation can choose one of two simultaneous workshops:


Right Relations and Leadership Development, led by Ian Evison
Right relations—developing behavioral norms for our UU congregations—and leadership development—moving beyond just recruiting people to intentionally preparing people for leadership—are two of the hottest subjects in our UU congregations these days.  Doing either of these things well requires attention to both. I will speak briefly about both and answer questions to help you take the next steps.


Supervision and Team Building for Staff, led by Dori Davenport Thexton
Whether you supervise paid/professional staff in your congregation or volunteer staff, the principles are the same.  We will discuss the concept of “The Ministry of Supervision,” and explore ideas for supporting, motivating and supervising staff and/or volunteer teams in the context of a religious community.  Working in a congregation can be an opportunity for personal and spiritual growth – learn how you can be part of this transformation.


We encourage congregational teams to participate! $10/person, $35 for a team of 4 or more.

Questions, please email or call Dori.

Workshops run from 9:30 until noon local time.
