CMED Course- Working With And In Teams

9th July 2015 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

with Revd Canon Keith Lamdin

Emerging themes of ministry and leadership in parishes these days always put teamwork at the centre.  Sometimes this is thought of as teams of priests working together, stipendiary and self supporting, of clergy and licensed lay ministers, or clergy and elected wardens and members of PCCs, and sometimes to include all those in the parish who exercise leadership – lay visitors, house group leaders, youth and children’s leaders.

This day will explore:

  • a model of team work promoted by Patrick Lencioni, known as the 5 dysfunctions of a team, including a film of a talk he gave several years ago to a church audience.
  • A theology of collaboration, suggested by people such as Robin Greenwood and Stephen Pickard.
  • The range of skills that are needed in every team to ensure that it actually produces something.  These are ideas developed by Belbin

The Revd Canon Keith Lamdin was for 25 years the director of the Board for Stewardship, Training, Evangelism and Ministry in the diocese of Oxford, where he managed a team of 14 trainers and consultants. He led the development of a competency-based modular programme, validated by Oxford Brookes University, at undergraduate and post graduate levels. He taught on the Master’s leadership modules.

 Now as the Principal of Sarum College in Salisbury he not only exercises a leadership role himself but also specialises in the professional development of clergy, working as a consultant to senior clergy as well as to senior managers in the field of health care, education and the voluntary sector. He has launched the MA programme in Christian approaches to Leadership and has been pioneering a programme for women leaders in the church. He has recently been commissioned to develop with Waverly Consultancy, a leadership programme for the House of Bishops. He also teaches on a senior leader programme on the Unconscious in Organisations for the Institute of Advanced Learning at Oxford University, and for the King’s Fund programme for senior Managers. He has shared in consultations and conferences in South Africa, Canada and the U.S.

 Keith works with a systems approach to his work, enriched over the years by his association with the Grubb Institute having worked as a consultant member of staff on their international Group Relations Conferences. For a number of years he taught on the psychodynamic Counselling Course validated by Oxford Brookes and sponsored by Counselling, Consultancy Oxfordshire (CCO).

 Recently he has co-authored a book on supervision skills for those who work with the newly ordained, and in 2012 SPCK published his latest book Finding Your Leadership Style.
