There are two kinds of change: technical and adaptive. As a rule, the former is easy and the latter is complex and difficult.

But adaptive change is the kind of change we need in our parishes today.

And it’s also the kind of change Pope Francis is constantly calling us to.

Dr. Dan Ebener discusses the complex realities of leading adaptive change in parishes and how to foster the virtues that permit us to guide our parishes in stormy seas in the fifth of a series of eight webinars offered free by the Yeshua Catholic International Leadership Institute.

In the series, Dr. Dan Ebener focuses on the insights of his newest book, Pastoral Leadership: Best Practices for Church Leaders, published by Paulist Press. The book is targeted to everyone involved in parish leadership at any level – from pastor to active volunteer.

Ebener is author of four books and dozens of articles on leadership – and teaches in the Master of Organizational Leadership Program at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, IA. He is also a Fellow with our own Yeshua Catholic International Leadership Institute.
