Testing the Waters
Building Healthy Staffs, Healthy Parishes

The current healthy congregations movement has deep roots in family systems theory. This powerful framework for understanding interpersonal relationships has helped countless parishes transform themselves. At the heart of the process is leadership by staff in modeling and encouraging fresh ways of working together, managing conflict, and cultivating relationships that bring the best out of people. We are exploring a continuing education design that would include an initial daylong workshop for parish staffs and the option for staffs to be part of a smaller peer group of staffs. The peer groups would meet once a month for three months.

Healthy Staffs, Healthy Parishes

The current healthy congregations movement has deep roots in family systems theory. This powerful framework for understanding interpersonal relationships has helped countless parishes transform themselves. At the heart of the process is leadership by staff in modeling and encouraging fresh ways of working together, managing conflict, and cultivating relationships that bring the best out of people. Using a daylong workshop as a basis, we are able to tailor a process for one staff or several staffs that explores how to achieve and sustain healthy staff relations for the sake of mission. Three half-day sessions scheduled over three months build on the initial workshop and the on-going reflection of participants.
