CMED Course – Shaping Culture

5th July 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

with Revd Charles Burgess

Many in church leadership know that shaping culture is what is required in their context, but shaping culture is perhaps the most difficult leadership challenge. How do you shape culture but not trash the past? How do you shape culture and not impose personal preferences? How do you change culture and ensure it is lasting and not just until you leave? Combining a strong model for shaping culture with practical tools, this day explores the questions:

  • What is culture and how is it related to vision?
  • What sort of culture do you currently have?
  • How can you bring about culture change?

Charles is a leadership specialist with CPAS. He has many years of practical leadership experience both from a career in the RAF and, in the last seven years, through his role with CPAS. CPAS currently work with over 20 dioceses in supporting them as they seek to build and strengthen a culture of collaborative leadership, including developing and enabling vision, changing culture, building teams and developing missional leadership. To this end, Charles facilitates various leadership development events across the UK, from individual days to longer-term programmes. He also mentors clergy in developing their leadership development skills.

Note: This event is a joint CMED/IME Phase 2 (curates) session.
