Leading Through Sabotage and Resistance with Tod Bolsinger

The Louisiana Conference Office of Congregational Development and Transformation is pleased to present a virtual two-part workshop with author Tod Bolsinger. 

Most leaders assume that navigating the challenges of a changing world, while trying to lead wisely and well, will be the most difficult thing they face. Yet, oftentimes the most important obstacle isn’t the one faced outside the church: It’s the resistance – including sabotage – encountered inside and among a body of believers.

In this two-part workshop, Tod Bolsinger will help shape you into the kind of wise, resilient leader who can lead through the external challenges and internal resistance at the same time.

Join us October 28-29 for this two-part, virtual experience
