Description: For a decade, Rev. Tom Thresher, Ph.D. has adapted the Immunity to Change approach to the opportunities and challenges of his faith community. He brings this wealth of experience to you in a four day workshop designed specifically for clergy and lay leaders. There you will learn the basic tools of ITC and how to expand them to the faith context.
Immunity to Change is designed to help individuals, committes and board make those changes that are most important to them-- but have proven resistant even to thoughtful plans and heartfelt intentions. The approach first generates a of something which is usually invisible—the way our current mindset produces exactly those behaviors which prevent progress on the goal we most want to achieve. This is the immunity to change. Once we see the real source of what has been preventing change, the approach guides us on a new path to accomplishing it.

- Addresses the unique challenges of working with a volunteer organization
