EFFECTS OF EXPECTATIONS Injecting Reality Effective leaders inject small doses of reality at important points in the process of change, deflating unrealistic expectations at the outset and re-inflating overly deflated expectations later.
RE-THINKING INNOVATION Nothing new under the sun Leader imposed innovation comes from a hierarchical/power/control/political capital paradigm not a realm of God paradigm. Congregations (like all organisms) naturally resist imposed change.
RE-THINKING INNOVATION Emergent Innovation (a healthier way) Discerning what the congregation, in its deepest, most authentic, most image-of-God self is wanting to become, then be the namer/articulator/language creator for that emergent vision/desire/dream, and the facilitator to the congregation for allowing/encouraging/enabling that vision/desire/dream to spread.
