Week 1

Leading Change: Three Schools of Thought

Wednesday, June 9, 4:30 - 6:00 EDT

Sarah Drummond

Cost: This workshop is automatically included in your registration at not extra charge to particpants who also register for weekly courses. There is a $40 charge for participants who only register for the workshop.

This 90-minute, online, workshop will introduce participants to three different dynamics at play when communities experience change: reason, emotion, and power. For each dynamic, Andover Newton’s Dean Sarah Drummond will provide a strategy to help a leader guide the community, through the turbulence associated with change, toward a better way of being together.  Although the workshop will focus on concepts in leadership, Dean Drummond will use Andover Newton’s move to Yale Divinity School as an illustration for each dynamic.

Sarah B. Drummond, Yale College ’93, is the Founding Dean of Andover Newton Seminary at Yale Divinity School. She is an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ, and her most recent book – and the inspiration for this workshop – is Dynamic Discernment: Reason, Emotion, and Power in Change Leadership(Pilgrim Press, 2019). She teaches courses on leadership and UCC Polity at Yale Divinity School where she also leads Andover Newton’s educational programs.
